[Q] CM users: Where does the battery go?
I realize that battery usage is a topic that comes up periodically, and that there are many variables, and this is not a slam on CM in any way, because I'm a huge fan, but my question is this:
Why, in general, does CM tend to use more battery than stock, all things being equal?
I've noticed that, even after having done all the usual stuff, like disabling features, brightness controls, etc. greenify, blah, blah, blah. that CM still tends to use more battery than stock, and I would have assumed that a lighter system would use less power, but even with the same apps and config, the same amount of screen on time, their is a difference between stock and CM.
Where does the battery power go? It's obviously being wasted somewhere, but what's really causing it?
