Anyway have greenify, better battery stats and elemental X all running, hoping it gets better because this is terrible.

That's definitely not normal. Mine drains maybe .5% or so per hour at idle. You must have something running in the background draining all that power. It could also be your ROM/kernal. You might want to try reverting back to stock and seeing if it improves. Also before you do anything, you might want to try wiping the cache/dalvik. Sometimes that helps with random battery problems.

Have tried wiping both, first thing I thought this morning! Kernel is elementalx, flashed last night.

I was expecting 5% or less an hour even 5% with wifi only and phone in pocket seems excessive compared to the G2. Switching to Franco in 5 minutes after I type this and download his app.

Gutted I messed up my G2, hopefully this battery thing comes good or I will sell the nexus and buy ANOTHER G2, no maybe a moto x

That's not not normal.

Does this mean that both of them are mess ? Mobile application development professionals don't recommend the moto x.

my stock N5 will loose may be 5% battery overnight. Something is wrong with your phone or apps. I don't use battery saving apps but I force kill some startup services to keep it clean (and hit the EScleaner widget several times a day)

I was expecting 5% overnight.

Lets see how it goes on Franco and if that doesn't work I will factory reset and see if that cures it. I am running stock, I ran a custom 4.2 rom on the G2. Maybe I should go and flash non stock again, sheesh what a hassle, I thought I could get away with root and xposed this time.

If phone is less then a couple days old, all this is moot.
Hasn't settled yet.
Otherwise as said, it's not normal.
