Default Save battery on Cm 10.2?

Hi. I just want to know how can I save more battery on this rom, cm cause when I had the TouchWiz stock one, battery lasted about 7-8 hours, with heavy use. And now with CM10.2 it only lasts about 5-6 hours, same use. How can I set the governor or which are the best performance settings for this rom? Right now I'm using interactive governor. Also, is it normal to take about 1 minute for the phone to boot? I have foldermount installed, but I don't know if it's the cause of this. Thanks.

I use the Slimrom myself, so not sure about CM, but 1min I think is a bit too long for the S4 mini. You may also want to try a customer kernel: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2568479 by F4k, its pretty good and stable. As for the governor, it situation dependent, some may perform better than the other depends on your installation and kernel. Generally ondemend, interactive and smartassV2 are pretty balanced between power saving and performance. There's few app you can use to set governor, its a basic function and they all work: https://play.google.com/store/search...g&c=apps&hl=en

I don't use foldermount, but those type of APP do use quite a bit of process, especially now a SD card is involved. You can use: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...erystats&hl=en or similar program to monitor and see which process/program consume the most power.

Standard tweak are simple, disable unwanted radio, use the 'black/dark' version of the menu, don't use over-complex launcher, etc. I'm not sure if CM has the KSM feature (Kernel SamePage Merging) in the settings menu, if you do and happen to use it, disable it. It waste about 30% of the power.

No need for anything fancy. Ondemand governor is the usual "standard" and gives me great battery. Smartass has always been awful on devices ive tried it. make sure you don't have programs like Facebook running in the background. Most likely its an app causing your drain.
