Post your screenshots with a description of the test you used.

I'm doing a low to medium usage test with Bluetooth, Location Access on High accuracy, WIFI, HSPA,Auto Brightness and google now. From 100% down to 0%. Then doing a Full charge time with phone turned on.

Will be posting screenshots via dropbox below with a few hours in between.

Battery usage screenshots. https://www.dropbox.com/sc/zwr2s240knxqove/_FZDWDZWmT

4hr 6mins screenshots of time on. https://www.dropbox.com/sc/zzvlu7oplnax7qf/IeDdDl9Nb_

8hr in with screen on time. https://www.dropbox.com/sc/ww0uwt5fo8tbuk9/mw_LPAcrB3

19hr screenshot with 7.5hr overnight standbyhttps://www.dropbox.com/sc/t64536q9a0l0axd/RWJ6_Oq4gJ

In addition I've used a2dp audio stream for an hour or so. I'll do a full screenshot of all the on times later.

Still very low usage scenario. Battery looking good. @22hrs 40% with updated screenshots above.

Final Result only took me to 15% with 1 Day 16 Hours. Screen on time 3hr 16mins. Needed a full battery for the day and couldn't risk it but atleast it's a general ballpark. https://www.dropbox.com/sc/oaj33ji9kssx5rt/BFiLIz-Jef

40 Hours is still pretty good for light usage. During a busy working day i would be happy with 9 hours max usage.

Yes it does have a notification light. Its in the same place as the Galaxy Nexus and the Nexus 4. Here is a video of it in action;

Not to be rude, but no its not. I meant the actual time the screen has been on not the % of it. When you click on screen you'll see what I mean.

Were you expecting Galaxy Note or LG G2 battery life from a phone with a 2300 mAh battery?

Those battery stats seem perfectly fine for a phone with a 2300 mAh battery.
