    This is how I roll:
    Full nandroid backup (optional): ~5mins
    ROM install + Titanium & Nova restores: ~5-10mins.
    Other ROM configurations: ~5mins

    OK. Try this first.

    Step 1: Install CyanogenRecovery
    Step 2: Reboot in recovery
    Step 3: Wipe clean Cache Partition.

    It worked for me :D

    Just go back to CM11. All lollipop ROMs have problems with battery.
    This is screenshot from a Kitkat ROM. Very little drop when screen off. Wifi set to power off when screen off.

    As you can see in the screenshot, Mostly System Apps are running there. Also. Chrome and Facebook do run for a while. But Greenify stops FB. That's all.

    Vivek, Normal Stats for "Far-below normal Usage" ??
    Normal Stats for Just Chrome, Facebook, Whatsapp and Sometimes Gallery ?
    Normal Stats for 5 hrs On-screen time , that too for just unlocking and locking mostly ??

    Yes ! Absolutely. Kit-Kat was the Best in terms of Battery.
    But No match for Lollipop in terms of Performance and Look.
    That's why I have to post my problem. Else I would've gone to cm11.

    I can get good battery life out of COS12 but it takes Xposed+Amplify(paid)+Greenify(paid).

    That battery life seems pretty good to me.

    However, I did notice a major increase in battery life on my phone after switching from COS 12 to the CM 12.1 nightlies, so if you really want better battery life, maybe you could try that :)

    Unless you posted more than the two from your first post then more info is needed as battery percentage doesn't tell the whole story. I'm talking about: Settings/Apps/Running

    Other than com.qualcomm, CM Stats, Theme Chooser, your keyboard of choice, and any widget you have running - kill the rest.

    Better then mine, I have the mobile radio active bug so chrome uses 28+% of my battery and every other app that uses internet uses 5+% battery. Heavy use I get 4 hours SOT other wise I only get 1-2 hours as my stand by time is crap.

    I'm a new OPO user - less than a week. Thanks for this forum! First few days i'd check the battery and it's say something like 19 hours left! i'd get a good day in - not 19 hours but 9-10 or so. today i checked it at 87% and it said 8 hours left, about 10 minutes later it now says 6 hours left. The only items on the battery stats page are:
    Screen 4%
    Gmail 3%
    Android OS 2%
    Android System 1%

    battery is Balanced. I just shut off Location Services. I'm on Wifi. No new apps installed. Cyangen 12.0-YNG1TAS17L. Something seems off. Is there something else i should be checking/ doing?? thank you!

    Since you are a new user, I would advise you to wait for sometime. Work with your phone normally as you would do. Charge it at the right time ( i.e. between 15 to 20% ). and don't worry about how long the battery would last.
    Share your results here after 2-3 weeks. That would be a right time to get to the conclusions. :)

    BTW Guys.
    I'm in love with Exodus 5.1.1
    Battery life improved immensely.
    So light and fast !!!! Trust me. It's really fast. Will post the screen-shots of battery stats in a few days. :)

    OK- thanks for the advise. One question- i read elsewhere on the forum to let it run all the way down to zero then recharge- but i see you recommend between 15-20%. should i do a complete run down the first few times or stick with the 15-20%?

    If you are charging it for the first/second or at max third time. Then do let the battery drain till zero.
    But if you are sure that the next time you will charge it, is above 3. then don't drain completely. Charge at 15-20%
