Default Nexus 4 , then and now

I owned a nexus 4 when it was launched.
Kept it for a while but sold it because of the poor (at the time) battery times with stock 4.2.

My question is if anything has changed since then in terms of battery and/or performance with the latest kit kat 4.2

Can battery runtimes get any better with custom roms ? Stable one at least...

Thanks in advance.

Well, everything has changed. There are a variety of kernels that greatly improve battery life..so I don't see any consequences to sell N4 just because of that

There are all kinds of kernels and ROMs to extend battery life. I love this phone more now than I did when I bought it. Nexus 5 what?
