I'll eat my hat when I see a screen shot at even half that. especially when the "phone" seems to be a real battery hog.

That's clear cut deceptive selling. I think I might threaten a class action to have a full refund and save my money for the N6. Maybe they might learn to stop lying.

Did you notice the * besides that claim and the accompanying disclaimer?

You can try to sue every other manufacturer while you're at it too, lol. You didn't actually think Nexus was the first to "stretch the truth" in this way, did you? They can put the devices in low powered operation that normal users would never attempt to get those numbers

The 14 hours that Anandtech got is much more realistic and still that is with extra niceties all disabled.

Lol! I was kidding. I've accepted that corporations and government have carte blanche to lie about everything and believe that is acceptable behavior... and the kicker is that we allowed them to create this scenario!
I can't wait to get 23 hours screen time on the new N6!

Gotta remember ....whoever makes the N6 (Motorola? ) won't let the nexus be as good as their flagship.....and battery is always gonna be an obvious "skimp" item. To cut costs and sell the nexus cheap.

These numbers are based on the device running 100% stock and with 0 non stock apps running services in a very good service area if not on wifi.. so essentially the perfect storm.

People are consistently getting their N5 and other devices to over 5 and 6 hours of S.O.T. so I can see it being totally plausible to see insane spec times on a tablet with a much bigger battery.

My N7 2012 goes about 6 days with 6 to 7 hour screen times. But it also sleeps with a drain of less than 0.1 percent per hour. I think it's cause there's hardly anything on it....everything is off, it stays on wifi constantly, and has no radio. I think if it were the 3g model, and not in airplane mode....the radio at least would drain it a bit more.

But yeah....batteries can do much better than most phones currently have. Standby drain will always degrade tho with more features running and radio signal strength for sure.

Can't see phone battery life getting much better than say an lg g2, or Droid maxx or something. Unless the phones get even bigger or battery technology improves so you get more bang at a smaller size.

Guess time will tell.

The demand is certainly there. I think we're seeing more of a focus on battery life with current phones. By using fast CPUs and LTE radios tasks can be completed and get to idle much quicker than before.

Where I'd like to see more progress is from software developers. Many apps and games are draining more than they require and don't focus on optimizing.

That's cause any Joe schmoe can make an app and put it on play store. LOL. They certainly don't filter out much.

I'm hoping for better batteries too....I miss the days of going away on a weekend and a charger not being on my packing list. Tho I doubt that will happen with modern phones.
