Increase battery life on STOCK/CUSTOM ROMS in Zenfone 5


Wouldn’t we all be blessed, if there’s a one ROM for our android phone, that gives us a promising battery backup and of course, performance? Yes, but unfortunately, just like the perfection doesn’t exist, a perfect ROM also doesn’t exist. If I talk about the stock ROM then they are so full of bloatwares and apps that are of no use. And if I turn around and look for a custom ROM then they have bugs and (majorly) battery drain issues that makes them a whole ignorant.


So this post is all about the better battery backup and performance on either ROMs. Be it the stock or the custom, these following tweaks may provide you a hell lot of improvement on your smartphone.


Files/Apps to be required:


Let’s first start with the bloatwares. There are many bloatwares present on an android phone. If I talk about the Zenfone 5, then delete those apps after rooting your device. After that by using ES Explorer, follow these steps to delete more useless apps.
  1. Open ES Explorer, swipe right and look for “ROOT EXPLORER”.
  2. Go to SYSTEM/APPS.
  3. Delete these Apps.
  • Basic dreams
  • Browser(Make sure you have Chrome/Firefox already)
  • CellbroadcastReceiver
  • File manager
  • Dash clock
  • Eleven
  • Email
  • Exchange 2
  • Galaxy4
  • HoloSpiralWallpaper
  • LiveWallpapers
  • LiveWallpaperPicker
  • NoiseField
  • PhaseBeam
  • PhotoPhase,
  • Phototable
  • VisualizationWallpapers
  • WAPPush/WhisperPush.


NOTE: Whether you are on STOCK rom or on CUSTOM rom, delete these apps, and RESTART Immediately


Now, after the reboot, follow these steps for more juice saving.


Basic Settings (For Both STOCK and CUSTOM ROMs)
Settings:
1. Wifi > Advanced – Scanning always available – OFF, Keep wifi on during sleep – Never.
2. Mobile networks: 2G (Wifi users).
3. Display – Sleep – 30 seconds, Daydream – Off.
4. Sound&Notifications – Other sounds – All OFF (your choice).
5. Battery: Turn on bat. Saver – NEVER.
6. Location – OFF.
7. Keyboard – Popup, Sound, Vibrate – OFF.
8. Lockscreen -Display Music Visualizer – OFF.
9. Developer Options – Window, Transition animation scale – 0x (or 0.2x) and Animation Duration Scale – 0.2x

if you wish keep AMBIENT DISPLAY to OFF and DOUBLE TAP TO SLEEP on nav bar


NOTE: For RESURRECTION ROM or any other cm based rom –
Don’t use BATTERY BAR, SLIM RECENTS/ OMNI SWITCH, SLIM PIE, CLEAR ALL BUTTON, SUPERUSER INDICATOR, RR LOGO.
Keep it clean. Default animations.


After all these, restart your device again.
Now comes the interesting part, TWEAKS
Start from the SetCPU app
Install the app, open it, grant SU permission.
Go to PROFILES tab, add a new profile.


  1. Turn this profile on when – Screen Off.
    CPU Governor: On Demand
    Min: 800 MHz Max: 1300MHz
    Priority: 100, EXCLUSIVE

    2. Add a new profile – Battery Saver.
    Turn profile on when – Battery 5%
    CPU Governor: On demand
    Min: 800MHz Max: 800MHz
    Notification: Persistent, Battery.
    Priority: 99, EXCLUSIVE.

    3. Again a new profile
    Turn profile on when – Any of these are true. ( in it, add your CAMERA apps)

    4. New one
    Turn profile on when – Screen ON.
    CPU Governor: On demand (2).
    Min: 800MHz Max: 1600MHz
    Priority: 96, NOT EXCLUSIVE.


Next comes the GREENIFY app.
Add all apps except Set Cpu,

.
NOTE: Don’t use Xposed. It runs everytime you start module app., after all you are using custom rom.
Google Backup off, and all tracking services of GOOGLE PLAY SERVICES should be off.

          And at last, the SDMaid App
 Check all boxes in Corpse finder settings, and scan and remove all corpse. (LEFTOVER Dalvik of removed bloatware).


OTHER TWEAKS:
Disable this apps: Clock, Google App, Google Calendar Sync, Google Partner Setup, Market Feedback Agent, OTA (if you wish), PICO tts, Print Spooler.

Force Stop this apps at night: Calendar, Calendar Storage, Google Contacts Sync, Google Play Store, Key Chain, Location Services, Themes Provider. (For 0% drain also switch to FLIGHT MODE at night)

Use MINIMAL GAPPS.
No BETTER BATTERY STATS, WAKELOCK DETECTOR, AMPLIFY, and BATTERY SAVERS.

Power Cycle – Charge from 5% to 100% and 10 min more to 100. Give up using phone while charging.


After all the above tweaks, RESTART you device.
Don’t forget to do a battery calibration by using the phone until it goes off, and then charging it to 100%
I personally have used these tweaks on my zenfone 5 and it was a great pleasure in using my phone then. It was fast, smooth, and the battery backup was really good too. Now I’m on Resurrection remix rom and the review for the latest build will be out soon. So stay tuned, an keep checking our Facebook page for more updates. Don’t forget to comment and share your experience after these tweaks on your phone.
