Default NExus 4 Battery

HEy guys

I know how much we love our nexus 4, but I am really getting irritated at its battery now. How much is everyone else getting on a normal day usage which involves 3g usage half day half day wifi, song listening, google now on. I just wish to know if i am doing something wrong.

Cheers

google now disabled , nfc disabled , location disabled , brightness set to about 30 % and using hells doctor kernel on default settings i get about 4 hours of SOT which involves playing san andreas , listening to music , reading news and reviews on chrome browser some sms texts here and there, so if i just listen to music and use chrome i can squeeze about 5 and half hours of SOT i.e using wifi , and my nexus 4 is more than year old now so its still going strong as before i think oh yeah even if i used google now it had little to no impact on battery life for me

Everything turned on, full power screen, about 3 hours SOT. I'm using Hells Doctor kernel and an untouched phone drains less than 1% power hour.

GPS sucks a lot of batterie. Do you use location service in batterie save mode aka high accuracy?

Why would GPS use a lot of battery when it's not being used?
Google Nexus 4 - Rooted / Cyanogen
Nexus 10 - Stock (Root + Cyanogen pending)

Unless you disable it, GPS will kick on from time to time if you have apps running in the background, like weather widgets.
Relax, go nutz!

When I bought the nexus 4 I would get around 3-4 hours of sot(screen on time). Its by this number people judge their battery life.

However I use paranoid android with their stock kernel/ Franco kernel which boosted my screen on time to 5-6 hours.

If you want a better battery life, my opinion is to flash a new Rom.

Another great app that did wonders for my battery was greenify. If you could get the donation package combined with xposed installer, your phones battery life would be extended by a large amount.

Hope this helps!
