Haha, you'll never play those games on a G300 :lol:

Think smaller, like Tetris or pong.

Don't worry, when my replacement comes Electra will be updated to a more later version of CM along with lots of new performance changes and features :D

Hi. Probably you'll all laugh, but even I go through many articles, I couldn't found some satisfaction answer. :wacko:
And what's the question is? Simple (and difficult altogether):
Which ROM for G300 U8815 (2030 baseband vers.) is good in those viewpoints:
- free of all stupid apps such a qype, google+, facebook, fmradio, talk and similar...
- good stability and battery lifetime. (no crashes, no restarts, no lags, easy to kill running apps...)

Mostly I use it (except calling and messaging, of course) for navigation, geocaching and some e-mails quick check. Sometimes I launch Word Hero or simple card games, but it's pointless.
I do not use it for gaming, video/movie watching or multimedia. So this ROM can be also free of any multimedia player.

So... any suggestion?

Will be really appreciated. Thanks! :)

Slim V13 + Nova launcher is the way to go (and an official bootloader unlock ofc.). Bugless, fast, great battery life. I use it the very same way you do and I am at 2-5 days of battery life (depends on geocaching use).

Can I ask what your usage profile is like as I find battery performance such as this with the standard battery hard to believe unless you hardly use the phone and switch a lot of things off (e.g. 2G data only or none at all, no wifi (but it's on above), few calls, not much browsing etc.).

Hi dalyer. Sorry for late answer, I was a bit busy.

You're right, I do not make many calls, neither use phone for gaming or movie watching, intensively browsing (stupid idea to do it on 4" screen, if I have 15" and 24" available, right?) or any another battery consuming activity. I have phone mostly "to be available and when I need to call or text". I know, for such simply reason it would enough dumb non-smartphone, half size and weight, cost 30Eur and stay ready for week or more.

But sometimes I need to check emails, also using phone for ebay trade, geocaching, using camera and some another apps. It's better to have one device for all those things, than buy more devices just for exact use.

I decided to wipe built-in mod because was full of vodafone and other crap, constantly running and not possible to kill it.

It's also about lifestyle. For example, one of first thing, what I want to kill, was social apps, such a facebook or g+ and similar. I think people should live a priori real life and THEN share something interesting with friends or family, if it's worth it. And believe me, 90% of FB posts are worthless. People live virtual life and are trapped for checking status every couple minutes, who post what... Mostly because they have no idea how to turn off those apps (and be frank, most of them are not possible to turn off), so they get used to be "online" all the time.
I do not prefer same lifestyle attitude and even I don't like it, I must accept running facebook all the time. So I change mod and it's much better.

Besides lifestyle is also important, that I can't use phone in work. It's safety restriction, as we working with sensitive and valuable customer data, private things, accounts and credit card numbers and so on... So phone is switched to airplane mode and stored in locker room, almost full 8 hrs. During night also I don't need to be disturbed by anybody, by intention or mistake, so another 4-5 hours is again in airplane mode. That's huge saving of energy and even I have such settings with previous mod, not too much difference I get, because even in airplane mode many apps and processes running and consume energy.

I do not use any data, all data sync are via home or work wifi. I have prepay program, and it's quite enough for me, 25 euro charge can last for 2-3 months.

I hope it's good enough answer. If you need to know more, just let me know. :)

Thanks. Useful reply. 4 days+ is impressive battery lifetime but some of your profile probably explains that alright.

Even after tweaking things I can only get c. 2 days on most ROMs (currently CM7).

Admittedly I could probably tweak things more aggressively (e.g. schedule switch (e.g. Tasker,Llama etc.) to airplane type mode at night etc.) but I haven't gone that far.
