the only time i got such bad runtime (13hrs+1h screen + 20% left) was with over 2hrs without mobile signal
which is to expected...

imho there are 3 major drainer on every phone: screen, bad mobile signal, some app that prevents phone from deepsleep'ing

Can you list whether you are on 4g or on 3g? That's going to be a big difference, on 4g i am only able to get 1:20 screen time, 10-11h standby with lean kernel

sry forgot. this was with 3g only as i have the gsm gnex also wifi always on auto brightness everything else off
but with "perfect" mobile signal
BBS tells me i'm loosing 0.4% per h while phone doing nothing.

i also got the extended bat now which gives me about 1-1.5h extra screen on time.

but for the record: its very easy to drain even the ext. battery fast: playing 3d heavy game for 4-5hrs with 6hrs uptime and its at 3%
so no voodoo here

well don't mistake me - 0.4% was the lowest value i got turning on the phone after idling and starting bbs ..
it will be higher if would do more stuff more regulary i guess

i only sync 1 IMAP account hourly and Google background stuff (incl. being online in gtalk and g+ notifications)

autobrightness on
wlan was connected and always on
BT/GPS off

no special setup just using Francos kernel with stock rom

just check wakelocks and deepsleep values maybe its an app

edit: screen time of 4hrs+ with rss feeds, twitter, texts, chrome and some other rather low resource apps i guess no gaming...

I really can't reach that screen time, also my battery charge 'til 99% no way to get 100%. I'm just thinking that's the begin of the end of my battery...

maybe, my battery is 1 month old

edit: attached screenshots from today - as this seems to be the way to go to show off battery life

I received today the extender battery from shipshop.

Wow the extended cover makes the phone better IMHO. I'm charging it.

It included a screen protector for free!

The extended battery makes the battery life from bad to "normal". I can reach easily 4 h of screen on time. Stand by is around 18-19 hours, finally I can leave home in the morning and return at night with some battery.

I weighted them:

Samsung Original Extended Battery 2000mAh - 44 g
Samsung Original Stock Battery 1750mAh - 38 g (Which makes sense, we are talking about 45 mAh per gram)
Chinese Battery 1900mAh (Same size than stock) - 32 g (So it's a scam, I'm sure they don't have more mAh per gram than Samsung)

This is the cheap battery I am reffering to http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...?ie=UTF8&psc=1 (It works fine, but it must be around 1500-1400mAh).

I hope you enjoy this information.
