    +1. All these other ROMs have to use more power to get the best results. Those are meant for our phones and are really just cut down stock ROMs.

    Harmonia1 would be the best. If you have any issues, it's still actively supported so you will have assistance.

    Remember that the act of flashing a rom eats up a lot of battery. If you want to compare battery life fairly you need to leave the rom installed for a few days and see how much it uses at that point
    jimlikesmayo and Badboytoast like this.

    I find Harmonia 2 to be great on battery life. Most roms that have been made by the users of the forum focus on the best battery life and preformance for the users. Great work to all the users whom spend there free time to help the Ov and the users.

    What I do to save a LOT of battery and I mean A WHOLE LOT, is just switch to 1x. I still get facebook notifications, emails and all that fun stuff, but it isn't using 3g. Or you can just turn off data while in class or work or a situation in which you aren't using your phone.

    Or just have the phone charge as you flash a rom, that's what I always do and my battery life doesn't suffer from building up all of that cache and dalvik cache data

    Remember, Bumblebee doesn't support new screens.
    Also, leave the phone on charge while flashing and first boot, it helps cut down on the drain.

    How do you switch to 1x and still get emails?

    1xRTT you still get data, just alot slower.

    And also, contrary to popular belief, you don't need to sit on a ROM to have the battery even out. The OS holds no real battery capacity to run off of. Battery stats file is just whatever you see Battery Use, nothing more. Initially, new batteries have to be "broken in" but after that it is normal to use it as is.

    On topic: BumbleBee gives the best battery, if your phone is an older model.

    And on that note, I wish the source was up, so it can be recompiled for phones with both older and newer screens.

    You can go into the framework and change the 3g.pngs to 4g, and 4g.pngs to 3g. It'll then say 4g when connected

    I do it in IHO

    Two ways that I know of.
    A) Go into settings and select "Wireless and networks"
    Scroll down and select "mobile networks"
    Select "CDMA Network Preferences" and click on "CDMA only"

    B) Head straight into the dialer and type this in without quotations "*#*#4636#*#*"
    Select "phone information"
    Head down to where is says CDMA auto(prl) and click it
    You'll have a bunch of choices but make sure to select "CDMA only"
    Done

    PS: Sure it's slower, but tolerable and doesn't bother me at all. (As if our 3G is a miracle anyway), but yeah doing these steps and then overclocking my phone is probably the best optimus v experience
    You'll notice your battery lasts longer :P

    This, or you can grab Quick Settings from "Google Play", and turn off wi-fi and 3G. Idk about notifications like facebook and stuff, but you can still text xD.
