I've used about 5 or 6 different roms for my HTC One and right now I'm using SentinelRom for android 4.2.2 and I seem to be getting almost double the battery life then from the other roms. Which I love. Anybody have any input on this? Here's a screenshot. I've got 15+hrs on this charge and I still have 27% left. And I've used my phone pretty heavily.

I didn't believed that sense based roms were superior than each other on battery or performance basis since htc one x days. But sentinel rom actually gave me a significant boost on battery life on all of my devices. (Nexus 7, HTC One, Nexus 4)

So I'm going to agree with you on this.

Ya. Not sure how exactly they tweak it to get better battery life but I'm happy... The cool thing too is the maker of the Rom takes suggestions from people and implaments them into the roms if he can.

I believe that it's not really dependent solely on the ROM but there are a lot of factors like usage, brightness and other things that either give you a good or a bad battery life. I have used the stock ROM, Android Revolution HD, and Trickdroid, and I got about the same battery life from both ARHD and Trickdroid (I didn't really keep the stock ROM except for a day or two so I wouldn't know). It's sort of hard to track the usage exactly in order to compare between two ROMs, because I for one use my phone differently every day, depending on how much browsing I do, how many phone calls I get or make, how many dropped signals, the brightness level depending on the lighting condition, and such. I must say, though, that I am extremely happy with the battery life I get from Trickdroid but I cannot say that it gives me a better battery life than ARHD, for instance, because that would merely an unimportant opinion that is not based on facts.

I tried to run a full day similar to that of those with trickdroid, ARHD and RGUI. And I just feel like the battery lasted a little longer on this Rom. I'm not sure if these developers can tweak software to change how long the battery last or not? But it does seem like there is a deference. I guess I should run it for a week or so on each Rom to get a true test. All I know is I love this phone and a longer lasting battery makes me happy as I can use the phone longer :)

On a side note. I am getting pretty slow speeds on speedtest with LTE. I'm getting 2 to 3 bars? Anyone know what that's about?? I'm only getting like 1.5mbps down and same up??
