energy saving

Why on 8.1 does the processor frequency not drop to 300 MHz?

This affects energy conservation.

Not really, a processor at idle is still a processor at idle regardless of speed, yes a higher speed will consume more energy but it is pretty negligible especially when you are only talking about a few hundred MHz. You certainly aren't going to get a huge increase in standby times by lowering the processor to 300MHz and then i suspect you would get many people moaning about how their Nokia 8 is suddenly stuttering all the time.

Agree to MrBelter and furthermore: are you using an app to show current frequency (which is using the processor at this time)?

bad kernel optimization

Slowing the phone down by another 218MHz is going to have just about zero effect on battery life.


My Ryzen 5 at 3.4GHz draws 14.85w idle

My Ryzen 5 at 1.5GHz draws 13.90w idle


A 1900MHz drop in speed saved just under 1watt in power.
