Yeah basically left as it comes, 600Mhz min, ondemand governor. I am testing to see if battery is improved with hyperthreading off, unless someone more in the know on hyperthreading knows the answer ?

I am of the mind to say it makes battery worse seeing as hyperthreading was not made for mobile devices, as far as I know it was for pc processors, which obviously do not need to worry about batteries running out.

But then reading this: http://www.intel.com...technology.html

You could say hyperthreading uses the processor more efficiently thus making tasks easier to do which in turn should use less juice.

I think this will be an interesting one to look into, does it help battery or drain it more ???

Hyper threading would save battery as it switches to one 'core'if you want, when it is doing light tasks

You've just installed a Xolo update, that widget was installed by Orange. Hence it was orange.
