Hello,
Some year ago or so I had a GNex on OTA 4.2.2 that I bought from ebay, and the battery life was terrible - some 4 hours of battery life which 80% was from the screen which I had on auto.
I also replaced the battery with one from a GS2 and the battery life did not improve.
I sold my LG G2 because the camera sucked, so I am considering buying a GNex again, so is this how the battery life is with the GNex on all? Or just my specific phone I had.
BTW I had the VZW model.

I get around 6 hours of battery life. Maybe some app was using up battery?

When im not overusing my phone i mostly can get through the whole day. Still battry life is not too great. But with some tweaks you can stretch it a bit.

Use an app like betterbatterystats to see where your juice is going. Then post here if you see something unusual you dont understand..

stock battery life sucks... 4.3 killed my nexus in less than a day of just being on.

I see 2.5 hours of screen on time as an average.

Yes better battery stats lets you know if deepsleep is happening and what is keeping it awake.
