Samsung Galaxy S3 - Page 189

post #1881 of 2113
I recently OC'd and undervolted my SGS3, and seem to be getting battery life. I just came from the stock kernel to leankernel, so the battery life may be just from that, or a placebo effect.

What sort of extra batter life (in minutes) are you getting from underclocking?


I also found a site that would allow me to make custom S3 cases from pictures. Not cheap ($39) , but I ordered 2 ... free shipping for the rest of the year ... and the cases review pretty good. I think I'll pick up a couple $0.99 to $10 ones and rotate out cases as my mood changes.

So far, I'm loving the S3.

I don't live in high coverage area though, so it's always looking for a better signal.

My phone from 100% to 0% can last like 35-36hours with CONSTANT music play. I have 3 profiles that i use with a application i downloaded:

1. General = Pretty much standard i have wifi, mobile data off as well as brightness at lowest (always)
2 Work = Phone off, wifi off, data off, ect
3. General Save = wifi off, data on

I spend most of my time in General, Using General Save when i am away from wifi and want to get on internet while using work mode for well work lol

Regarding the kernel...
Governor will change the battery life, and the lowest and highest frequency clocking as well. Did you change those too? I think default is OnDemand, I change to lazy or something like Wheatly, also there is a smartass v2 that is good. Too many governors IMO.

Underclocking has very small changes. You may get 30m or 1hr more. An extended battery will do much more for you, and turning off the data is even better for conserving power. Its just an extra. Since this is an overclocking forum though, I like to squeeze all the performance I can.

If you want to test battery life realistically through overclocking/underclocking, you have to turn GPS, WiFi, and everything off. Airplane mode. Then see how long it takes to drain under different conditions.

I think realistically you'd want to test it under normal usage instead of artificial benchmarks.

That's all I'd care about. "Benchmarking" is fine, but I would much rather do "Real world" testing, which means WiFi and Cell reception.

Yeah, I just have it on the default, OnDemand, leankernel doesn't come with a ton of options regarding governors, OnDemand, InteractiveX, and another I can't think of right now.  I imagine the extra battery life was more from switching from the stock kernel than anything, but I haven't had any issues undervolted, so I'll probably just leave it.

 

Regarding the extended battery, yes, I got one for Christmas yesterday, so far today, with what I would say to be light use, only two phone calls, and a little bit of LTE data use, everything on as far as GPS/Wifi/Data/Sync, I'm still at 85% and it's been on the battery for 9 hours now.

Also tried the HTC 8X. Better design thatn the Lumia 920, but sitll preferred the 920 over it.

How can you think the SGS3 is too big? I think it's small lol.

Not sure how you'll cope with the 5"+ phones coming out next year.
You simply don't buy 5" screens..that's it. Phones are pretty much never going to get larger than 5.5" and that's already an enormous phone. 4.7" is really the max I could be bothered with.

Screens will get longer like the Iphone before they get any wider.

So, to anyone that has theirs overclocked to ~1.8Ghz, does it help with heavier games/emulators? Goldeneye for N64 ran like utter crap for me frown.gif. Hoping 1.8Ghz makes a difference.
Also, does the SixAxis app with the PS3 controller work for all emulators? (N64, SNES, etc.)

I still don't see why anyone would underclock the processor.

Overclocking, yes. But underclocking may be detrimental to the processor.

Definitely increases battery life when not in heavy use. That and when you turn on screen, it snaps back to normal processor speeds, so why not underclock?
