    I keep my phone around 700ish on the high end and 200 ish on the low end. On demand governor. Screen off profile I will set the high end to 400ish and low end 200 ish.

    Same as fuzzy, I also have it it under clock when the battery gets low. 15% or lower and it drops to 200 low 300 high
    That's completely personal, I'd like to have it in case I need it, be really angry if I pulled it out and it was dead because I just HAD to play angry birds or whatever poison I've picked that day

    My phone seems to bearly crawl at default clock speeds let alone underclocking it. I run at Max 1200 min 245. On demand

    I use Juice Defender, and I use minimum 122, max idle 122 and max 768 with the governor on conservative and my phone barely has any lag. There are certain games where I have to overclock to get rid of lag, but for normal use, these settings work great on my phone. I've used it off and on for 11 hours so far today with data and wifi turned off when the screen is off, and I still have 66% battery left.

    SetCPU is a paid app brainz2013. Posting a download to a paid app is piracy(besides posting a link to the app in the play store)

    Yes, it is true that it's a paid app in the Play Market, but if you are a member over at XDA, you can snag an older version for free:

    SetCPU for Root Users [2.2.4] Undervolting and more 07/07/2011 - xda-developersSetCPU for Root Users [2.2.4] Undervolting and more 07/07/2011 - xda-developers

    but we still wouldn't want to distribute it from here since the developer has created several options for obtaining it.

    So, BRAINZ2013, if you would be so kind as to the delete the attachment above, that would be most appreciated.

    Thanks!

    Welcome to the wonderful world of LG Esteem haha

    Use 4G as little as possible. I keep mine at normal 1024 and 245 and get about 6 hours heavy use on normal battery. But i also use screen off profile at 768 max. Remember 4G is a battery killer.

    Smart phones in general have awful battery life, not just the Esteem ;)
