I used to be obsessed with this drain, but after half a decade of tweaking I've made no 'significant' improvements. no custom rom or custom kernel or custom titanium freeze or anything helps.

that's just because of the things I run - I think outlook exchange server drains it a lot after a few weeks of not rebooting. I just reboot it.

I've wasted so much of my life with this that I won't bother until ... my brother brings me my AUD24 Sandisk 32GB MicroSD next month LOL




Swype on iOS is detrimental to accurate typing. Apologies in advance.

It would be trivial to schedule a reboot task once a day/week with Llama. I already have it doing heaps of automation, I'll post about it some time. I have a 32GB Transcend SD... it's just file storage.

This morning it's back to 2% battery use overnight, while in airplane mode, quite reasonable.

Yesterday I disabled Google now, uninstalled Timely alarm clock (mostly because it woke me 30 minutes early), and uninstalled market updates. I'll give it a week then install the newest market release, if I can work out how.

2% is good but was airplane mode, I have market updates on and doesn't make a lot of difference try leaving them on for a week and see if it was just the Google now.

Greenify is very good as well

If you want to use google now goodness, turn the location reporting and history off. Will be slightly more drain than the 2% but not much.

I have market updates on, though I have everything on manual updates as on low bandwidth connections or mobile data I don't want things auto updating. I don't know how to turn market updates off anyway.

What apps have you "greenified"?

May try that next week.

greeified everything it suggests except things like betterbattery stats, Titanium backup, metservice, tapatalk.

the rest that I did obviously havent had an impact of those facebook and google search were probably biggest hogs.

I tried google now for a while and whilst I think the idea is pretty good it has little or no value to me, if I was working in city it may do but I'm 5 minutes from my workplace and know where the closest coffee shop is ;)

Just greenified AirDroid (rarely used), dots (a game), facebook, feedly, K9 and Kaiten email, a WiFi tool, trademe, twitter, yatsee. I couldn't find google search in the list of available apps.

Google Now is helpful when you're on holiday, but at home it has little value for me. I'll probably enable it before I go overseas next. Maybe as it gets better it'll be more useful at home. Things like "it may rain later today, take a coat" or "traffic's bad take that road" would be helpful.
