    Is yours not running smoothly? You shouldn't have to do anything to keep this running smoothly except maybe reboot once in a long while.

    No it's fine, but I've come from a galaxy and I felt I had to do several tweaks lol disable apps etc in order to make it run ok. But still I felt it wasn't running smoothly

    This isn't a galaxy. The m9 does a fantastic job managing all of that on its own. 😌

    It gets better with time after its fully settled...for battery life, just make sure you apply the fix for the Google play services running wild and eating away at your battery

    Install AppOps from the playstore ...it will ask you to reboot the 1st time if all goes well... Then go into the app... Find Google play services, disable "keep awake" and "location"

    Ultimately you can root your device... And flash a custom ROM.. I recommend Viper 3.5.0 and the leedroid kernel 6.0...+xposed+ greenify+amplify+powernap

    Under very heavy usage... I get lots of screen on time over a couple of hours... Like today, I've been home all day, and am almost at 50%...n over 3 hours of screen on time already.

    Truth be told, there is always room for improvement...n am sure by now even you've noticed that Google messed up with lollipop. He doesn't need to do all these things, but the 1st guide is necessary, even for you. Google Play Services are super battery suckers.

    Unless you use Chrome for Viewing content from multiple sources or your using Chrome for app, web development then try disabling "Android Webview" in Apps.. I disabled it and switched to Firefox and it cleared my battery drain issue up.

    If you dont know what Webview does or you have to ask.,.. then your not using it all the time or developing within the chrome environment, it can be disabled. However, I do recommend you read up on what Webview does, because Google do include security fixes in the App itself, but if Play Store or Goggle Apps start behaving strangely, then youll understand whats happening.

    Google Play Services as a whole take up about 40 - 50% of battery use.. so they are really heavy.. but I dont nderstand why google wont take the time and tidy them up

    Is this how they track my step count in Google fit or how they know when I'm near Work to shoot me a reminder? I kind of use those things.

    Yes you will...but just to make sure it doesn't affect your productivity... You could just disable "keep awake" and go into the location settings and switch to power saving.

    Would you recommend using the built in HTC power saver too?

    Not on the latest update...the older version that allowed us to fine tune what features it handled was the best... Then HTC took that away... N all we have now is one switch. The CPU management isn't good under powersaver mode so you can leave that alone.... You could also go to settings>more>data usage... Restrict background data on the apps you don't really use. This will prevent frequent syncing also cause less wakelocks

    Turning off vibrations helps save power(including input vibrations) ... As well as Auto sync(some apps will be affected by this, Gmail been one of them, but you'll still get notifications for apps like whatsapp).

    I got a couple questions about this built in power saving mode. If I think of more I'll edit this post.

    1. How can you say that the CPU management isn't any good,it would make sense to have the feature built in if it didn't work good enough to use it.

    2. Give me a brief description/explanation of the differences between the "sleep mode mobile data battery saver and the one under the main power saver switch. The sleep mode one let's me set a start and stop time to turn off data or let it "learn automatically"

    It's been covered countless times on forums, especially xda... From the experience of many M9 users...please feel free to browse the forum. All I can tell you is that letting the power manager handle the CPU resulted in slightly worse battery life. If you noticed, before the stream of updates we could choose which components where handles by the power saver... Unchecking the CPU proved to be most beneficial. The software plus the SD810 just weren't working well together... When we switch to power saver... The phone relies more on the a53 cores... Even for heavy tasks,the issue was this keeps the cores awake longer so that the tasks are completed, wasting power...Sadly depending on 8 a53 and a57 cores causes as much power usage... Because the a 57 cluster is very power hungry...if you ask me 8 cores is overkill especially with that a57 cluster. I get great battery life running the snapdragon 808 setup on my device,disabling 2 a57 cores. Tasks are completed faster and the cores don't stay on too long, also only powering 2 a57 cores seems beneficial. My phone rarely throttles and Stays cool...try getting rooted and flash the viper rom, it has the feature that let's you disable cores...


    I always have the sleep mode on, it learns your habits to the extent that I don't ever lose any functionality... So you can leave that checked....

    Screenshot of active temps and it's really hot here, you should fare better in cooler climates...

    Without any mods, use 2Gonly mode to save power when you least require super fast internet... Its good enough for emails n chatting, this will definitely improve battery life. I use it all the time and use WiFi when I require fast internet... But when am out and an about without WiFi I use an app called intelli3G that automatically switches to power saving 2g when my screen is off n back to 3G/4G when my screen comes on... But it requires root access and exposed.

    Are you sure intelli3g works with m9 + custom rom?

    I wouldn't know, am using the O.G ONE M9 international, and xposed plus intelli3g works on viper rom, so does amplify and powernap.
