    I have simply stunning 4.4 and while the battery has been fine lately, today I used the phone for alot of texting and browsing and my battery dropped significantly.
    I was wondering which is the best rom for battery life? I am running it at 650mhz if anyone wants to know.

    The answer for this is going to very so much based on usage of the phone. Best thing would be to try a few out and see how they last for you. In my case using the phone medium to moderate texting and phone I have not gone under 40% after 10 hours. I have noticed this on the several roms I have loaded and used.

    some roms have had some horrible battery life, best way to save battery, is using lower screen brightness, and avoid places where your phone gets poor service. i know you can now turn off 3g on the droid whenever you want (you can still make calls and receive texts with it off.

    i did a test a few months ago and got 2 days and 5 hours off a single charge, ill do another one soon now that i can turn off 3g when the phones idle.

    also if your rooted, theres an app somewhere on these forums that allow you to lower the minimum brightness by 33%, saves lots of battery

    the problem is that I am outside in the sun alot so I need the screen to adjus automatically. I'm just trying to figure out which custom rom is the favorite (the majority of the people agree) in regards to battery life.
