Been to Belgium and have used my nexus 5 as my shooter rather than my Samsung galaxy camera. I have to say I am impressed by the quality and especially photo sphere (awesome!!!) However my battery was terrible and only had 2hrs SOT. I had to charge twice a day.... Anybody have these problems?

Depending on how much and how you use your phone, battery life can vary greatly. You just cannot compare keeping your screen on with phone in Airplane Mode and without touching it to taking pictures with GPS and data on.
Check out this discussion for more arguments.
And if you wanna compare different devices' screen on time, please give EXACT details about your usage patterns.

Had it on air plane mode. Moderate usage as there were not many hotspots. Silent switched off at night

The camera can be quite the battery drain, even just using the viewfinder.

Probably the largest software drain after gaming.

i had huge battery loss from the new camera and the camera daemon as well until recently. i moved the camera app from being a system app to being a user app, and now it uses much less battery. of course you need root for that.

Does it really use less battery, or just report using less battery in the usage stats? This would be interesting if it actually did lower the usage. Maybe some permissions don't work unless it's a system app?

its using about 50% or more less battery, and the camera daemon isnt taking any battery after use(like it did before, without having to reboot). until about 2 weeks ago, i couldnt stop complaining about battery loss with the new camera app, now im quiet
