Here's the best set up I've found, LineageOS 14.1 Nightly, Franco Kernel rk113 3.4.0, SuperSU v2.82, and No Frills CPU Controller. Franco Kernel increases battery life crazily on it's own, then add LineageOS and SuperSU and use No Frills to underclock it. It lasts forever. You could even add the LG G2 battery mod to this and have a god tier battery.
Note though, flash LineageOS > SuperSU > Franco Kernel. If you flash the kernel before LineageOS it may be over written and your kernel will be messed up. (I know this for a fact will happen with Magisk 15.2). Before doing any of this make sure you have a back up using TWRP and/or Titanium Backup in case you mess up.
LineageOS 14.1 Nightly:https://download.lineageos.org/hammerhead
Franco Kernel: https://kernels.franco-lnx.net/Nexus5/7.1.1/anyKernel/
(scroll all the way down until you see a file called "fk-r113-anykernel2.zip" and download that.)
SuperSU 2.82: http://www.supersu.com/download
(scroll down until you see the section called "Zips" and download the latest version).
No Frills CPU Controller: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...rillsCPU&hl=en
Hope you enjoy
If so please hit that "Thanks" button! (Also the OS doesn't really affect the performance)
