    I love MiUI....but the battery, man......discuss? DSX?

    Hey Guys,

    Ive been ruining MIUI now for a few weeks and overall I really enjoy this rom. 5 point lock screen makes it so I rarely even have to fully unlock the phone, drop down text notifications are stellar, customization and overall smoothness is unmatched, I feel like this is how android should be out of the box. However there are a few things that I just dont know if I can handle

    1. Battery life is just bad, I wake up at 5am and by 7am its dropped 20%. This is with about 10 minutes of streaming pandora while im in the shower and thats it. Possibly a few texts....by 1pm if I have not plugged in my phone its just about dead. I can deal with this while at work because I sit at a computer all day but after work / weekends is where it really kills me.

    2. Losing service, this has just happened the past couple days but I will look down at my phone and there will be a tiny X above where the service bars normally are, this can only be resolved by restarting the phone. I really cant have this happening for obvious reasons.

    To combat the battery issues I have lowered my brightness and done numerous battery calibrations, while it has improved slightly its still poor

    losing service I did a wipe/factory reset...still happens randomly...

    Because of this I have started to look into DSX and or shuji? Everyone has said DSX has amazing battery life and is very stable, can anyone weigh in on this? Would swapping from miui to dsx require alot of work? Of course if you have solutions/work arounds for my to main issues with miui id love to hear about them

    Although Miui 1.8.5 was showing better battery life ..I find 10% an hr about right on CM based roms for me and if heavy use mid afternoon charging ...Im currently testing Darkslide and the battery is def what the hype is all about ....Im impressed with rom as well...
    You would need to sbf then install GB two part to. 596 to then flash Darkslide if you wish to try...

    Not to necessarily hijack this thread but based on what you're saying, Bk, MIUI is based off of Cyanogen Mod? I ask because I honestly don't know squat about the custom ROMs. I've been thinking about trying one or more out, (and now to the thread related part...) but I can't go charge my phone in the middle of the day once classes start back in the Fall. I tried Googling Darkslide, but didn't get much other than some forum references, near the bottom of the first search page. Other references were about photography on an iPod, etc.

    Thanks, jloya.

    Continue on with the battery discussion. It might help me make up my mind as to whether or not I flash to something else or stay Moto'd.

    it is my understanding that Darkslide battery is one of the best if not thee best, meaning it would out perform your current set up.

    MIUI is just so beautiful and smooth....although 3 1/2 hours later im at 50-60 percent..no bueno

    looks like ill be giving darkslide a try

    And as a potential ROM-flashing noob, I'm even more confused. I guess the good news about DSX is that I'm already on the rooted, 2-part GB.
