There are so many kernels for the nexus 4 which is great, but it makes choosing one so hard!

What kernel has a good balance between battery and performance for 4.4.2??

And what app do you recommend for controlling the various kernel settings?

I'm running a purity build from about 6 weeks ago.

I'm using Matr1x at the moment, 4:20 screen-on-time which is much better than the 3h I was getting on stock.

Words of advice my friend. Not all phones were made the same. Therefore, others configuration might not work well with your phone. Just try them all and run some tests yourself. That's the right way to do it. This is a nexus. Be adventurous mate.

p/s: Start off with some popular ones like franco/sema/ak/hells-core/matrix.

In my case mtr1x kernel gives me the performance but with good battery life, hellscore or hellsdoctor are a bit better in bettery life but in performance not so good as matr1x kernel. You must decide whats more important for you.

May i ask where do you guys see that "performance is not as good" on some kernels? Because the 1.5Ghz Quad Core should handle pretty much anything, even with a battery friendly kernel. I'm using Hells + MOD i have a great battery life and no problems with performance at all. Granted, i dont play 3d heavy games, but still... Or are we talking about lower scores on benchmarks that mean nothing to day to day using performance?

In games it sometimes worked not very well maybe an issue with the New minimum Frequency of 81mhz. I dont care about Benchmarks.😁
