Default Nexus 5 battery life

For anyone that's interested, this is today's battery life on my Nexus 5. Came from a Galaxy S4 and I must say, I'm impressed.

Man!

Almost 7 hrs of SOT... Thats Frigging AWESOME! Can you tell us your usage patterns? What was enabled/disabled...? Majority time on WiFi or Mobile Network (2g/3g/HSPA/LTE). Signal Strength of the Carrier

On my N4, the highest ive gotten is 5 1/2 hrs of SOT and that is with most of the stuff disabled and on wifi!

Whoa! At first 11 hours looked bleak, but 7 hours of screen-on time sounds fantastic!

Wifi on the whole time or not.. 7 hours of SOT is impressive.. especially on a 2300mAh battery

as a current S4 user, seeing things like this is making me really impatient in waiting for the N5! i could barely get 5 hours SOT on an AOSP rom on my S4 or even on TW and this was with greenify and auto sync off at night.

really hoping that once I get my N5 average SOT time will be 4-5 hours as thats all i really need to be satified

What screen brightness setting are you using? I barely hit 3 hours of on-screen time on my galaxy S3 so this looks really good!

The most screen on time I used to get on my S4 is 5:30 with wifi only use. That number has dropped to 4:00 now on wifi and 3:00 when I am on LTE for pretty much the whole time.

This battery life is impressive to me and seeing the camera comparisons between nexus 5/S4 and having the Nexus 5 win has solidified by decision to get a nexus 5. Now if only I didn't have to wait 3-4 weeks...

Few questions:

1) google now on or off

2) Do you have sync on?

3) Do you have facebook/twitter/instragram...etc?
