Recommended ROM for average performance with longer battery life?

    Hey guys,

    so after wiping my phone because of the awful 6.0 OTA update which ruined my battery life, I am considering flashing a custom rom. I´ve looked through a lot of them and can´t really decide.
    I figured that the most important thing for me is battery life but I hate nothing more than a laggy phone so that sweet spot in between would be perfect.
    I never play games on my phone and use it generally for web, social media, music, reading and the occasional video.
    So am I right to assume I don´t need the full perfromance from my phone to get a non-laggy experience from Marshmallow?

    If so, can someone recommend a rom that potentially extends the battery life a bit while not compromising the performance too much and has a bit of customization?
    Ideally it should be a M rom as I really cant get enough of the app switching animation and smoothness.

    Thanks guys!

    ^ that, or Sultan's CM13. Or Darkobas. Or TugaPower. Or...
    You need to test it out.

    @sunz google could tell that. But CAF is not rom. Its Code Aurora repository. Its the place where qualcomm releases their source code of their processors. Cm is modified version of stock android. Asop is nothing but Aosp is clear android.

    Listen to me, if u want cm stuff, sultanxda cm13, it is what tugapower, marsh, jgcaaps, strive to achieve for, sultanxda cm13 is like the benchmark for cm13 atm.
    If u want aosp kind of clean rom, darkobas.
    Both are top notch.

    Using lightning kernel v39 with these two roms is recomended.

    Why anyone would use lightning kernel with sultanxdas rom. Its famous for its CAF-kernel.
    Btw boefflas kernel is better than lightning kernel.
