Too many peeps don't realize the main issue with 4.2.2 is media. I get at least 8 hours just fine with daily use with 4.2.2 and WIFI enabled all the time, and use Spen 50/50. Of course power saving is enabled. I use Greenify and 360 Security, mostly because I have 200 apps and some are a bit of a memory hog. I use the stock touchwiz as many launchers are too buggy or become just as bloated as stock loaded apps for my own taste.

So far I have seen just about everything that could cause battery drain, and many point their fingers to 4.2.2 because they are too lazy to figure out what works well and what does not. Plus there are so many app updates that break functionality, no wonder Apple peeps are always a bit snobbish.

I have a few replies and a thread in the Q&A section. I have tried both custom ROM and prior release ROM. I am satisfied with 4.2.2 as it is very stable and works well for me.
