I can confirm that. Battery life is quite acceptable to be a daily driver. used it for nearly two days without charging and still 25% left. Normal usage profile, Wifi, gps, bluetooth always on. Two simcards.
Using last 12/31 build since Sunday and Rom is quite impressive.
Battery life is good enough for an entire work day, UI is running fast, everything stable. Had to wipe data, dalvik and cache (again) on first boot (bootloop and popping sound). No FC for now, everything working fine.
Just missing some customization from 4.6 (mostly QS weather and battery logo) but it's only a beta so not complaining.
Two weird things : I now have Retro Music Player installed as system app, and phonograph as normal app. I had both apps before flashing so can't tell if Davide changed default music player or if it was a bug during the Google account restore.
Can't install apk from Download directly anymore, I have to go in Internal Storage > Downloads and choose the apk to install it. Apk downloaded before last flash still can be installed from the first screen. No big deal but strange.
Anyway great Rom, as usual, and many thanks to @davidevinavil for great work.
EDIT : Ok went into Rom changelog and saw that Retro music player is now default music player since 12-29 build.
Thank you for this good working Oreo Rom.
Battery Life is very Promising!!! My former Custom Roms (lineageos & aex) reached always like 4.5 hours SOT. This ist really not impressive compared to the OPO.
See my actual attachement , after 2 hours SOT there is still 72% battery left.
So you should make two days and almost 6 hours SOT. I hope...
PS. I cannot receive any SMS. Tried different Apps but no success. Sendung SMS works.
