Battery life is best determined after a few days of settling in .... About 3-4 full charge cycles........then if it sucks ...change and try another ROM setup.

I found Facebook to be battery hungry whether on LG's rom or CM. It refused to hibernate on greenify's command. The solution that worked for me was deleting Facebook.

And also monitoring apps behavior in general, wakelocks, etc. I put yahoo weather on a few days ago and the app racked up like 500 wakelocks in the first few hours.

I improved my battery life by restoring my DD, Stock 4.1.2 Nandroid. I can't see getting this much standby/screen combined time on our official KK, yet. Plus, I had issues with lagging and bugs (such as constant playback errors with Google Play All access). The only thing I miss is the greatly improved Stereo Bluetooth quality in 4.4 vs v the too-bad-to-listen on 4.1. If anyone could tell me if/how to edit those libs/files I'd not even care if I ever get stable KK on the e980. Anyway, organic battery usage.



I'm gonna let it run till dead and predict 72+hours with 4+ screen.

I was also getting severe Android OS battery drain for the last few days. I lost 60% battery life in just 3 hours!

I fixed it by "recalibrating" (or at least I saw it called this elsewhere on the internet) my battery. I simply used my phone until the battery died and my phone automatically shut off. Then I kept trying to power on the phone until it stopped attempting to turn on (this just makes sure your battery is truly dead; i doubt this does anything useful though). Then with the phone off, I charged until 100%, then continued charging another 2 hours (to make sure battery is really full). Then I turned on the phone. After this, I am getting excellent battery life and Android OS is using far less battery.

EDIT: No longer true. The issue eventually came back and has been plaguing me since.
