    Post [KERNEL][10.0.0] Sultan Kernel [August 14, 2020]

    Checking this out. The May 1st kernel without SLMK was having a a higher idle drain but really good performance which translated to better SOTs in my use case. Going to agree that the previous version from Apr 22 seemed to have much better idle drain and battery performance overall. Thank you...

    Post [06.12.2019][WALLEYE][ANDROID 10][4.4.206] Kirisakura-Wahoo Kernel 7.1.0

    @freak07 I had two incidents of random hang/reboot today. Setup is stock ROM with your kernel and no root. One instance was when I was using kiwi browser and the other one was while I was using Whatsapp. I add unable to capture logs at the time of the incident and will try to do so in the future.

    Post Pixel 2 kernel reviews, discussions, comparisons

    Forgot to add that I have a smartwatch paired as well. So on LTE with my device paired to the smartwatch/headphones idle drain is around 2% per hour. With bluetooth disabled and on WIFI idle drain is around 1%. Didn't get the time to accurately gauge drain while streaming on LTE over bluetooth...

    My setup is as follows Stock ROM + kernel, no root. I got interested in our streaming drain numbers for the previous Caesium setup since I stream a lot of music via bluetooth so decided to test it. Prior to this what worked best for me in terms of day to day use was Elemental, Caesium used to...

    So I just started testing the Caesium kernel based on your report. Not seeing anything in terms of aggressive drain. My setup is similar to yours without AOD always on. Will update you after I give it a few days. It maybe getting hot because of the ART process running after boot, it tends to...

    Post Can I prevent my new Pixel 2 / XL from being rooted?

    You don't need to be rooted for malicious software to be loaded on to your phone. Just stick with installation of apps from the play store and check the reviews/ratings and if something sounds to good to be true then it's probably best to avoid it unless you have valid sources authenticating it.

    No issues as such. Could be a rogue app or something else. Maybe you could test the phone in safe mode and see if you get the same results

    It should be good in the long run. In my personal experience after using a lot of ROM's/kernels/mods since 2011 I would say the max your needs would come to is getting a custom kernel. With no disrespect to the developers who have worked on providing great roms throughout the years, google has...

    Post [Discussion] Google Pixel 2 Battery Life Thread

    Yes it's not the case for all users. Mine was off in 8.0 and on in 8.1. I didn't check the setting when I was on DP 2, maybe it's affecting users who updated to 8.1 from the developer preview (this is just me speculating).

    So it seems like Google enabled the mobile data always active option which is the case even when Wi-Fi is on in the 8.1 update. Not sure if this is the case for all users but I saw that enabled on my phone under developer options. Screenshot attached. Disabling it has improved my overnight...

    Regarding tempered glass, as of now none of the premium brands are able to manufacture one without defects so far.

    Post [Discussion] Google Pixel 2 Battery Life Thread

    Give it a few days to settle in. Most likely the app optimization process was running in the background after the update. Earlier versions of android used to do the app optimization process during the boot itself resulting in boot times of +5min after a system update.

    Yes currently using the Spigen Slim Armor Black with no issues what so ever. Maybe the volume buttons are a tad hard to press but I personally think that's a good thing. I didn't get the tough armor since I felt it was a little too bulky.

    Not sure exactly what you are looking for but if you want pure performance you should try butterfly. Drunksauce/Hawktail are balanced profiles. As to why you are not noticing any battery improvements using Saberv2 could be because you may have a heavy usage pattern(including apps). If you give...
