Battery performance will only improve after 2 or 3 battery cycles. i.e. After flashing the ROM or Kernel wait for 2 or 3 days to comment on battery performance. BTW clearing batterystat.bin does nothing
according to engineers at Google.

After flashing a new Kernel remember to wipe the cache not sure exactly why but it was told by kernel developers

You are right on that one. The correct sequence is to hold the power button, then press the home button.

Some other tricks that made my user experience better were:

Limit your data or set a data limit warning. Great feature. It only monitors data over the mobile network, however you can show the wifi data as well if you wish. Some ROMS have had this in the past, however it was sometimes unreliable.This is a built in sense 4.0 feature and works great.

Disable "Auto Review" in camera settings>continuous shooting mode. This will give you the best burst shooting experience and you will be able to easily switch to different camera modes, without the annoying best shot feature popping up. Also disable Limit to 20 frames to get up to 99 continuous photos.

Go to settings>more>nfc Enable nfc and scan your smart credit cards or any nfc tag, or nfc enabled phone.

If you use face unlock, go to settings>security>screen lock>face unlock>improve face matching. It drastically improves the time it takes for your phone to recognize your face.

Try out the friendstream lockscreen. Its pretty cool, some people may hate it, others may love it.

Hope this helps

In settings, power, Fast boot - when checked you are only doing a hot boot when you select Restart in power menu, uncheck it and you have the normal reboot(preferred).

And btw, both methods mentioned above posts on screenshot works.

Power Button and Volume down works as well it a ICS Tweak works on most of the ICS Models. Just tested it. Hold your power button + Volume down for around 3 seconds it will take a screenshot

Hi,

I came from a HTC desire which had a track pad so I am not sure if this is a new thing.

But to move the cursor left or right while typing, you can press the volume up / down to move it. Found it pretty helpful.

For the HTC swype keyboard which is swype on a much bigger keyboard.

Go to settings, keyboard. Then HTC input and enable the trace feature. It's replaced swype for me now.
