    If available for your device (google is your friend) you should run the Franco Kernel on your Nexus. Amazing battery life. You don't need the app to run it, it ships with recommended settings, but you can update it, tweak it and support the dev.

A Kernel manager that is so beautiful, fully updated with Material Design and a very easy-to-use UI, it combines a series of powerful tools to manage and control your device with franco.Kernel. Its generic options will work on any device's Kernel, but there are specific features tailored for franco Kernel which won't show up if not supported.

Your device needs to be ROOTED. I don't accept refunds if you fail to read this warning.

You can also choose whether for Wi-Fi to be on/off, if you desire you toggle Android Battery Saver, specify what type of Location Mode you want to use for that specific app and choose the display resolution on a per-app basis too: Available resolutions are: 540p, 720p, 1080p, 1440p and 2160p!
