    Currently I am using the latest Anthrax kernel with the xondemand governor. Performance and battery life seem pretty good so far. So is there a better governor that I should be using for performance and battery life? Maybe I should just set it to performance. ;)

    I like xondemand, personally. Don't use performance unless you want to maximize a benchmark result -- it will peg the processor at the max frequency.

    I know that that the performance governor maxes out the cpu. With xondemand it the seems that the cpu stays at the min frequency and only goes up when needed.

    I like snartass v2 but you should stick to xondemand due to performance. I like it better.

    I use xondemand for my Evo and ondemand for my Galaxy Tab and am having great results. The cpu frequencies seem to stay pretty steady with these governors.

    Yeah I don't have to worry about lag or anything even underclocked to 800mhz. but I normally leave it on smartass v2 since it's mostly conservative and can give me better performance if I'm playing a game :)

    I liked SmartassV2, but for some reason it always ends up running only at the max frequency after awhile. I've been using interactive and intellidemand
