Default [Q] Battery life after updates?

Hi all,

I've been looking to get a Nexus 5, but one of the things I've heard is that the battery life isn't great. What sort of battery life do you guys get? Have any of the updates improved it?

Thanks in advance.

Battery life has always been good for me. Most "battery problems" are network signal related.

I use a custom kernel....

If I install so many apps maybe there will be many running in the background draining battery, right?
I greenify anything I don't want / need running in the background.

Battery life is and has always been great for me on the n5

Edit...before bed...








Sure, been on wifi all day but still good imho

I cant complain about battery life. It depends like in all phones how you use it. Some may experience *short* battery time because they flipping they phone on all the time I have always most battery consumed by screen.
