Re: [Q] Battery Life 9070
well here are a few things that i do to save battery
Firstly use xxlpz baseband instead of xxlq4. Basebands also affect the battery life. (Baseband helps to provide all the network functions).
basebands are inter compatible, so you can use xxlpz baseband over a Rom based on xxlq4
Secondly, I use stock xxlpz odexed firmware. Deodexed rom is used by the modders to theme the framework.
Otherwise an odexed rom is slightly faster than Deodexed rom. Moreover deodexed rom will use the data partition to write it's .dex files which reduces the data partition a little...
I don't use any modded rom. If you see the modded Roms, most of them have superficial changes, not from source. A little change in the framework, a few init.d scripts and some extra apps. You can always change your framework on your own by decompiling the framework-res.apk and systemui.apk.
If you don't know how to then use UOT kitchen. ( I am not opposing anybody. please don't take it personally)
Use a custom kernel. I use cocore 4.4. For me battery is really good using it. I have made an init.d script. If you use cocore 4.4 then put the script in /system/etc/init.d and set permission 0777 and reboot. Also set the governor to ondemandq.
After installing cocore, drain your battery untill it switches off on it's own. Then put your phone in download mode (that is on the screen where it warns us not to flash custom rom) and leave the phone untill it discarges the battery fully.
Now charge you phone till it reaches 100%. overcharge it for half an hour.
After this reboot into recovery and flash Shaaan clockworkmod. Goto advanced setting and eipe battery stats and reboot.
If you are not a hardcore gamer then Switch on powersaver in setting which would limit cpu to 800 mhz, lower the brightness.You will still be able to play, light games like temple run, granny smith, cut the rope etc without any lags.
You can buy anf install ram manager pro for better ram management.
You can also disable a few samsung apps.
Go to settings> manage applications.
Select an app which you don't use and disable it.
I disabled swype, accu weather, chaton yahoo services and few more which run in the background and I dont use. Disabling would freeze the applications, which you can also do with titanium backup.
I use nova launcher which uses less ram and is smooth... Never lock apps in memory.
My settings are minimal, ie I keep vibration and haptic feedback switched off.
I don't use 3g so I keep the network to Gsm only. But I am 24*7 day and night connected to WiFi.
So I use easy battery saver and set it to intelligent mode...
I play a few games mentioned above, lots of WiFi for surfing the web and calls. My screen is always turned on literally. But I manage 1.5 days of battery life.
Well yeah that's it..
