Early development I know but does this build have the highly decreased battery life seem to be found in almost all 4.2.x roms?

Nah. It's known that 4.2.x consumes more battery. I just wonder if any head way has been made to control it better.

I have similar battery life to 4.0 as well. The difference is something along the lines of 20 minutes of screen time. Idle is about the same in my case.

Some early 4.2 builds had a system process that got out of hand. Most if not all builds at this point have that fixed. 4.2 also eats battery for the first hour or so as well, since it tries to download your apps from Play Store. Once you get past that, it evens out to about the same.

Actually battery is amazing on galaxy nexus on 4.2 Roms, you have to factor in that crespo4g batteries are pretty old and diminished if your using the same battery ever since your first purchase of your phone.

I have a hunch that it has more to do with the gnex and above having multiple processors vs the ns4g only having a single processor... I think this one has to work harder for the same tasks that a multi-core system would do with relative ease...

So an example would be a photosphere image... It might take around 3mins for my phone to process that image... The entire time running with the screen on and high frequency... Whereas the gnex might be able to do it in 1-2mins, essentially cutting the time in half and using much less "peak" power...

That's the only thing i can think of on why these phones don't do as well with +4.1... I could be way off but this is what i tell myself and it makes sense lol
