I'm using the September version of Havoc OS and I'm pretty satisfied.
The MIUI (global/EU) were causing very serious battery problems; especially when WIFI is enabled. It seems some kind of driver issue; since I do not see this drain on custom ROM. I played with the network types (changed it to LTE/UMTS), but it doesn't make any significant change.
I have tried a bunch of other ROMS and Havoc is the one that most happy with and gives me the least amount of battery issues. So WIFI on and mobile data on at the same time, doesn't lead to drain of battery. Also there is almost no drain of battery in the night (perhaps 1% on the worst case).
Also I enjoy the fact that not the whole Google suite of apps is installed out of the box; I took the gapps pico installation and installed just what I needed.
The thing that does bug me is the battery drain when I'm using browing (Via/Kiwi..doesn't matter) or Youtube. Then I can almost see the percentages going down. So I don't know what is causing this. It seems to be draining a lot faster compared to my previous phone (Moto Z Play).
I installed some battery analysis tools:
- GSM Battery pro
- Accu Battery
I have rooted the device and also installed:
- Kernel Auditor (cpu's scaling governor I changed to ondemand since I don't play games)
- Simple System Monitor.
But if internet isn't used and I'm just reading some PDF's then I'm sure I could stretch the SOT to 25+ h. I do have a 13" ereader, but I don't always have it handy, so I'm reading quite a lot on this phone.
In short.. I really like this ROM and I'm looking forward to the update.
No idea if and when the Rom Bauer will provide the 3.0 on XDA.
I found the link about 2 months ago by chance.
Oh first experience .... after 18 hours of average use (5 hours of sleep, about 40 minutes of surfing, 90 minutes streaming
1 hour listening to music, 20 minutes gaming still 80% battery left
By the way also a huge big thank you to all the other Rome cooks who provide us with their hard work again and again
with new Rome for our MiMax 3 and keep our device up to date and alive.
Using same version of this rom. But no Google.. microg. When i go home after a full day, I usulally have %79 or more battery..
I suspect , your google software is eating up your battery.
Other than that, you may try to use Android Pie, bacground run restriction adjustment for the apps. It really helps to conserve battery.
I don't think this is the cause. It is the moment I'm using the browser or youtube, that the battery starts to drain very rapidly. If I don't use them, battery is great. That is one of the reason I like Havoc and my setup; because if not used, there is no battery drain. And if I don't use internet, batterytime is nearly endless.

I did 35m run with youtube on my Moto Z Play and Mi Max 3. Same distance to the wifi. Both lost 5% of battery (although 5500Mah vs 3500Mah). So it appears it isn't draining faster from a percentage point of view.
any news on the quality of the 3.0 builds and is there any info on the person who's putting these builds out? I love Havoc 2.9 and its been running rock stable for some months now. Monster battery life too with just the pico gapps. Always want the upgrade though android 10... meant to be even more battery friendly... ?
