Really sick of fancy rom, just care about battery life now

I ever have lots of interest in testing and use ROMs in last several months, now I got bored about it. For a guy, like myself, who spends lots of time with computer, fancy ROM functions does not mean too much, for myself.

Now, what I care most is the battery life. I tried several ROM, very bad battery life, also easily get heated. Playing with fancy ROMs, I lost basic function of a 'phone'.

Now, I want to stick with the basic function of a phone. Anyone can tell me how to get nice battery life, together with stable, fast, and simple phone performance?

Thanks in advance.

I think then you should get back to stock. I know there is another ROM around that has a good battery performance but it is really light but in the meantime, stock is the way to go for you.

the one that I use that gives you the best of both worlds is Psyki's ROM very very little problems and my battery with normal usage will last a day and a half

Re: Really sick of fancy rom, just care about battery life now

I'm a big fan of EnergyROM myself, although I recently tried Psyki too. I think the newer features from the more recent roms are pretty great, I found the rom speed and battery life to be troublesome.

I've recently switched to MightyRom 6 Final and I've been very satisfied. It doesn't have all the bells and whistles of some of the 6.5.1 roms, but battery life is good, and enough of the features that I use to keep me happy.

You're insane. Stock roms are the worst for battery.

Changing the subject, but my buddy has been running the new sprint stock rom for a few days so he can take it in for service and the battery (and speed) is light years ahead of the original ROM. I thought it was a pretty decent rom actually.

Re: Really sick of fancy rom, just care about battery life now

grooves has pretty good life, but the fancier the rom, the more battery life it sucks out. try grooves or someone who still has 6.1 or the last 6.5 builds. manila will suck you dry also...
