Sick of 6 hours battery life

I consistently get 6 hours battery life with moderately heavy use (3 hours screen time, all Reddit/Web browsing on wifi). I don't think it's any of my apps. Battery is mostly used by the display and Android processes, as expected. Is there a ROM specifically built for battery life endurance?

I would return for warranty.

nearly 6 hours of Ingress GPS, screen on time... I currently use GPe + Flar2's excellent ElementalX kernel. On Viper, I got about 4 hours with Ex Kernel.

I changed the appearance of my soft keys using SoftKeyZ. If I do an OTA, will they return back to default?

Only difference between your GSAM screen and mine is bluetooth. What are you doing on bluetooth? My bluetooth time is 0, 3h on screen time, 1 day 19 hours, 23% left. See if there's a diff with it off. Only thing I can think of is autosync as well.

Post screenshot of app usage and screen. Without that would be only blind guess.

Have you tried the Power Saver mode?

I'm using Viper One. Had 4-5 hours of heavy use and wifi and still had 11% left over after 25 hours.
