    Hello Folks,
    I personally found that the battery life on my OPO has increased drastically after the COS update [only while on standby] (screenshots provided)
    And the 'Doze' feature functions well enough.

    In this post I have mentioned a few issues and solutions to them. If you have any more issues or alternative solutions you can always qoute this post.

    Here are a few glitches:

    1] The battery stats are buggy (does not show the actual consumption by various apps)
    The problem seems to be solved if you on the latest version.

    Solution:
    a) Wipe the cache partition
    (the option is now present in factory reset in recovery mode)(it takes up to 20mins on some devices)
    (can also be done through settings > storage > clear Cache)
    b) Power off
    c) Charge the battery to 100%
    d) Switch on and it might get solved


    2] Battery drains faster than before while the phone is in use. (SOT is improving after every charge cycle)

    I would like to know your views about the battery life of your OPO after the update and if you have any tips to optimize it further.

    Tips: 1)Please don't install any other battery saver app for 'Doze' to function properly on your phone. If you have done so, just uninstall the app and reboot.
    2) Don't judge the battery life in the first few cycles.

    Did you turn off wifi scanning?
    Settings, Location, Three dots on the top, analyzing (only option)
    Uncheck Wifi and Bluetooth, these keep the Wifi and Bluetooth always available, if you change settings reboot phone.

    SOT will inform afterwards. Testing*

    What's your SOT & remaining time on battery?
    Please post screenshots.

    Anyways I am not gonna flash it till May, cuz if someone finds any battery drain or any sh**ty bugs & someone makes a master fix thread for cos13 (like the cos12 master fiz thread by @Reboot101), I dont wanna face that again. I already have installed the highly stable Cm13 by @Sultanxda & I am really happy with its battery life & very-very-less-bugs.

    Both COS and Sultan are based of the same CM stable branch.

    It optimizes the apps while on standby so as to consume minimum power possible and hence save battery life.

    Has anyone tried the 'Effiency' battery mode? I'm using it now.

    Less performance, but not so much difference on battery life actually.

    Now at 82% remaining with nearly 1h SOT

    I know, but Cyanogen modifies it a lot whereas Sultanxda modifies it only a little & adds the minimal, simple & awesome CAF 3.4 kernel tweaked by @Sultanxda (for a lot of improvements & even better battery life as per his thread in xda), and it is having very good battery life. ☺️

    What I was trying to say was if they are based on the same branch how can COS 13 have sh**** bugs like you say.Also you are stating the opposite,Cyanogen doesn't modify a lot of the code.Also both ROMs have similar battery life but then again it's your opinion.Over and out.
