using siedo 1750 (tho i never noticed much improvement over stock) Virtuous 2.7 + custom kernal offered from rom manager setCPU with the usual/common profiles i see posted all over (screen off, battery<50%, temp) Display down to 50% WiFi on at home and work 8hrs unplugged 8hrs Uptime 3hrs awake time 40% remaining Time without a signal: 4% (i have wifi connected most of the day, and JD manages my mobile data for 1/15) Mostly phone calls and emails. Only 5 txts, no GPS, no camera, no apps. My Usage chart shows the highest item is "Voice Calls" at 32% which was only about 20 calls, longest one was 25min. Thats actually not that bad, but not much better than i was getting from Stock. Since the major reason i rooted was for the battery saving capabilities, im obviously here asking you guys what my next step is. Are there other ROM/Kernal combos that are known for having insane battery life? Do i put a different kernal with this ROM? I feel like im barely using the phone! I feel like if i did play some games, surf the net, maybe use tether, etc. That id be dead before noon. PS, i understand 12-16 hrs with heavy use is actually great. Im posting this because with my current root combo, its not terribly better than my stock setup, so i want to see what else i can do. This isnt a "omgz the battery sucks!" thread. PPS, i would have the 3500 in a heartbeat! If they just made a decent case for it!! I have the Siedo Active, and love it to death!! PPPS, yes i plan to try some ROM/Kernals, im just wondering if there is any known winning combo specifically for power users who need extended battery and who are willing to sacrifice some performance for it.
