Great info and detailed test results!! THX!!
Out of curiosity, forgetting all the numbers, which kernel is your favorite?? Which one felt the smoothest to you?
(the reason I ask is because I just upgraded from SGS1 to SGS2 today and have to start all over again choosing roms, mods, kernels, etc, and would also like to hear your overall impressions of these different kernels)
I have got no real or absolute favourite kernel.
As IMO battery life is more important, I prefer Phenomenal Extreme, which is extremely undervolted by default but stable on my phone.
For smoothness ... try latest SpeedMod kernel.
N.E.A.K. and SiyahKernel are also very good and smooth, but you can tweak a lot of system/kernel settings to optimize the kernel to your needs ... so that is something I would not recommend for "beginners".
It is your phone, bootloader is unlocked, so feel fre to flash and test any kernel which is compatible with your ROM.
You are welcome post your results/experiences here.
I just flashed Phenomenal 5.5 Extreme and added its results.
As I recognized a "suspicious" wakelock (Social Hub - Seven.Z7), which was not as big/long in previous tests, and battery test results are worse than usual for Phenomenal Extreme, I will do a second battery cycle and update the results afterwards.
SocialHub is in my recommanded apk removing list (in my battery saving tips collection), it's sucking battery juice like hell same about Seven engine
Btw, I tried latest XXLPW CF-Root kernel but didn't found it very battery frendly in deep sleep, won't recommand it to ure future kernel-to-test list at all
