    Heavy users (3hrs+ ), Best rom/kernel combo?

    This is a question for heavy users. For the purpose of this thread, we will use 3 hrs or more with screen on from a single charge. Please share how many hours of screen on, how many total hours of battery life, the rom, and kernel used. If you have screen shots, even better, but not necessary. We'll take a gentlemans/ladies word.

    If you had any other ordinarily battery draining processes going on like 4g etc, please specify. If you used an app like juice defender or only used 3g to conserve battery, please specify. Also specify, if your using the stock battery or extended battery.

    When you say moderate use, did have at least three hours of on screen time?

    The most screen on time I have ever had was 4 hours on Axiom 2.2 on the extended battery. No kernel change. Don't recall total time.

    That's pretty impressive. I have heard of people getting upwards to 30 hrs running on 3g. Looks like you up for a similar experience. What it's you awake time?

    I'm new to rooting and custom roms. How significant are the battery life claims? I'm pretty happy with ICS, but the only gripe is battery life.

    Sorry to hijack.

    You can improve it a little by undervolting but the reality is that it just largely depends on your usage styles. I got 27 hours out of my last charge because I spent yesterday working on my house and watching football. Will probably kill it in 5 hours tonight when I have nothing else going on.

    Tapped via Galaxy Nexus LTE..

    The right rom and kernel can give you almost double your battery life and even go beyond that. I highly recommend unlocking your boot loader and rooting. As you are happy with ICS, I recommend that you flash the rom by Fabolous. Just run his rom without switching kernels for a couple of days. Than make a backup before experimenting.

    His rom should look and feel just like stock, but smoother, faster, and substantially increased battery life. Make sure your on version .402 official Google update. Go to systems/ about phone and check your version. If your still on .401 or .400. Go to update this phone.
    Then unlock and root. First app to download before flashing an actual rom is Rom Manager. Get the pro version. You will be able to make a copy of your system (nandroid), so you can always go back to square one.

    Before you unlock and root, there are a few apps that can help protect your data. 1) Call Logs back up and restore 2) SMS backup and restore 3) my back up pro. Google should automatically back up your apps. However, the first time you unlock your bootloader, it will do a clean swipe of all your data. If you back up your call logs, text, and than backup all your apps and data with my backup pro online option, you will be able to retrieve everything after the wipe.

    I loaded GladOS kernel on AOKP yesterday and got the highest screen-on time I've seen...and it was on the first cycle on a new kernel. Under heavy use, I got almost 4 1/2 hours screen on time (10 hours total time) on the standard battery. And I think it could beat that after it settles in for a few cycles. If you haven't tried GladOS kernel...TRY IT!
