I installed 2x battery yesterday and did some of the stuff it suggested (turned down screen [I'm about 40%], turned off GPS unless I needed it) and I'm at 61% after 8.5 hrs. Granted I'm not a heavy user by any means - I usually check FB a couple times, maybe send a couple txt's, browse the news and such each hour or so, but it looks like I should be able to last a day. I can plug in at work, but I'm not always at my desk.
I made it nearly the entire day last Friday and I just kept playing it and looking at it.
I'm just unlocked and rooted, no ROMs or kernels.
A little update on my battery experience with this ROM and kernel. Seems pretty comparable to completely stock. I did wipe battery stats at 100% this morning, so it may not be fair to make any judgement until the battery has been reconditioned.
The original post that showed 16+ hrs of battery life was the same person who showed less than 2hrs of screen usage, and no streaming apps like pandora, or web browsing, or really any use of the phone. With that and the subsequent posts by others, I think I'm just going to pass on this for now. I don't see any major gains cause I usually hit 2hrs of screen usage in the 1st 5 or 6 hours of being off the charger lol.
Keep all the feedback coming strong guys!
I dunno if maybe some of it was simply observer error, but from what my battery was doing a few days ago to the last two days it feels DRAMATICALLY different. It would take forever for the battery to charge and after the changes it seemed very different.
Was down to 10% before I left today, so I had to charge up before I left. Plugged it in, took a shower and got dressed, left the house with 30%. Was in the car running around doing errands/gift buying, had it in the car charger sporadically and currently at 20% with a few phone calls/texts. I never felt like I was in danger of running out of juice.
To compare this with my old phone would be a joke, I was always charging it, and I don't feel that way at all with this phone now.
