good morning follow Note 2 users

I found something worth sharing for us permanently battery and resource thirsty.

I recently upgrade my Note 2 (N7105) to Stock KitKat 4.4.2 and immediately started checking the battery performance, which is quite impressive.

I have been using on 4.3 the TouchWiz Launcher but tried the Apex launcher on 4.4.2 battery performance went down significantly.

with Apex I managed to get barely 18 hours battery with normal use.

I have decided to test both touchwiz and apex with the same desktops (apps and widgets) over a single night without use.

the test with Apex led to a battery loss of 30%
the test with TouchWIz led to a battery loss of 7%

until I will find a better solution, I will stay with TouchWIz.

Any recommendations?

Go launcher will suck more battery due to its tons of plugins

I am using nova as well. Maybe apex has a wakelock problem. You should check it first. If phone can't get to the deep sleep it consumes much battery.

I was using Themer and Aviate. I think themer is much better and battery consuming is little more than TouchWiz. But at the end I stay with TouchWiz
