    I was wondering what was better or if there was a difference in freezing an app vs. renaming an app. I wanting to maximize battery life of course and I was wondering which route was best.

    IMO there is no difference or advantage doing one or the other. Renaming, such as .apk to .bak makes the app unusable to the system (the system doesn't recognize it as loadable). Freezing does the same thing, it make the app inoperable by whatever means are in the code does the same thing, it prevents the app from loading. IMO
