Hey everyone,

I just came to the M8 from the Nexus 4 and it's been great. I've gone through the whole rooting procedure but haven't flashed any custom ROM on it yet. I tried to look for this information around the forums but I couldn't find anything about it. Is there a way to get Screen-On time measurements in the stock ROM? Or is it a feature on a custom ROM? Thanks everyone!

There are various apps that can provide this.

Screen on time is something that has been removed from Sense for some time now (since maybe Sense 4+); and I believe Android in general (so I assume GPE ROMs won't have it, either). Although more "modded" or feature packed custom ROMs may have it (CM, etc.). I'm mostly a Sense user, so I can't say for sure.

I have Better Battery Stats which works without root I am fairly certain. The apk is floating around xda but I went ahead and paid for this version on the play store to help support the developer, as it is an app well made and one I use every day to check my screen on time to gauge battery performance

I had wonky times with BBS (however unrooted, so that might have caused it?), but found GSam battery monitor to be pretty good.

Thanks everyone! I'll definitely give these a try and see how they work out for me. Sense has been such a nice ROM for me performance wise and looks wise that I didn't want to go to a aosp based ROM.
