Hi,

I'm looking for your suggestions on the best/most stable and battery efficient rom for this device, i've been on the release channel for CM12 but experiencing battery issues, my device is over 2 years old and i will swap the battery but i'm still looking for suggestions to what the most stable/battery efficient rom is now for this device, i am willing to downgrade (os version) if necessary, at this point i just want a really stable working phone, the honeymoon phase is over

thanks!

This is what i get when i use it lightly.



With normal usage it's average 2-3 days.

Stock 4.4.4 with locked bootloader. All crapware freezed + some services i found useless also disabled. Lux brightness to keep screen relatively dim helps alot too. Couple of xposed mods and just make 100% sure nothing wakes phone up from deep sleep. Use HSPA /HSPA+, avoid LTE as it draws 2-5 times more power. Always prefere Wifi as it's most energy efficient.
These numbers should improve with new battrey and it is very stable. Last time i did reboot was previous year.

For me personally, CM11 (KitKat 4.4.4) is absolutely the best option for stability and battery life.

There's no ROM as solid as CM11 still...

wow that is crazy battery life compared to my z1 compact which barely makes it 1 day and that's only using it to listen to podcasts taking a few calls, i am on CM12 nightly updates channel, but i believe my battery is shot too which is why i am switching it out for a new one.

I am going to downgrade to CM11 Stable i guess as it seems to be the best way to stay away from sony's stock rom that i absolutely don't like.

Is this the ROM you recommend for CM11 : https://download.cyanogenmod.org/?ty...t&device=amami

Or is there any one else with possible security fixes you would recommend? Thanks!

I'm personally happy with the battery life of cm12.1. Without heavy usage, it last 2-3 days for me.
Anyway, haven't tried myself, but there's a cm11 with security fixes in this thread:

  • April Google security patches
  • fix for CVE-2015-7550 (Kernel)
  • fix for CVE-2015-8785 (Kernel)
  • fix for CVE-2016-0723 (Kernel)
  • fix for CVE-2016-0774 (Kernel)
  • fix for CVE-2016-0821 (Kernel)
  • fix for buffer overflow in msm perf (Kernel)

You can download the build here:
https://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=24459283995316619

If you know of any other kernel CVE's, let me know and I'll include fixes in the next build.

Seeing as there's a bunch of patches I applied manually and since I don't run CM11 anymore, I'd appreciate a quick confirmation that the ROM still runs OK.

Best

Thanks man,

I might stay on 12.1 for now until i've swapped my battery out to see how much of my issues is directly related to bad battery. If i don't get more then 1,5 days on the new battery i'll try that build, thanks for the tips everyone!

I'm on CM 12.1 with some apps frozen and am getting around 3 days with light use, and mostly wifi for data connection. CM is very solid. I also remember the original stock Kit Kat being great, but the amount of crapware it brings along is unbelievable.

What I definitely DO NOT recommend: Resurrection Remix. I tried just for fun (and to check on Marshmallow) and it's a total disaster.

Mail, Music, Browser, Calendar... I'm not using the standard ones coming with CM, so there they are. I realize there is probably no impact on performance or battery life, though. Anyway, I'd prefer that CM allows me to remove them.

I use the latest MIUI for our device, and I can say, without any internet connection, only other daily stuff, like music, calls, messages, it takes me 2 days in once charge. With some occasional email checks or facebook checks, still almost 2 days.
Worth mentioning, that I had the battery discharge problem too and I sent my phone in for repairs, so my battery is literally new.
