Here's a screenshot of the only apps I use/have enabled. On the second page I just have the YouTube app.

Don't know why people are getting crap battery life. I got 4 hours and 23 minutes screen on time with 14% left. You should always charge your phone fully before you turn it on for the first time!!!

I thought the whole conditioning a battery thing was a myth. How many hours total did you get on that single charge?

It doesn't work like that with modern batteries now. Still good to do, but not necessary.

As for your usage, is this over 3G or Wi-Fi?

I would contribute but my phone is currently without a SIM, in airplane mode and connected to Wi-Fi.

On my first charge I had pretty good battery, that is with everything enabled (including Google Now). I expect it to only improve with subsequent cycles (Not to condition the battery, I think I read the OS gets a bit more efficient after a couple of cycles - might be wrong)

Lucky! I've never had good enough luck to get 4+ hours of screen-on time from any phone as it came stock. How do you do it?? What do you sync/have enabled/disable? For example I read somewhere that disabling Google backup/restore and location services helps.

I disable nothing. Everything is turned on. For me that translates as All Google services\products turned on and auto-sync, HAXSync syncing once per day, Whatsapp syncing & Dropbox upload turned on for both Wifi & 3G. I set my brightness to Auto, Screen timeout to 2 mins.

So yea, I take 0 steps to try to improve battery.

Wi-Fi. If i had not put it on charge I probably would of got 4 hours 50-55 mins screen on time. I always charge my new phones fully before turning them on for the first time, just a habit of mine lol.

battery was a big thing for me... having previously had the pretty dire (in battery terms) GNex I was hoping it would be an improvement.

Whilst not groundbreaking I have been pleasantly surprised so far! Currently on my second charge and so far today have:

68% Left
9h 0m 11s on Battery
Screen On: 1h 37m 30s (32% of battery use)
Wifi-on

Should be heading for around 4h30m-ish screen on time over 24hrs (if not a little more!)... pretty acceptable

Not impressed so far, after a charge i'm on the following:
45% left
8h 49m 19s on battery
screen on: 1h 22m 48s (16% battery use)
Wifi-on

Most of my battery use is the Android OS, that's not right surely?

Batter life seems ok. Mine was at around 70% charge at 10:30 this morning and it's now 16:39 at 45%. Ive been using it all day, sending texts, browsing chrome, facebook and twitter.. Haven't made any calls though, but constantly checking google now and being impressed.

Brightness is at auto. HSPA and WIFI have been on all day. So has haptic feedback and sound.

hope this helps a bit.
