Default Just snagged a used G2

I bricked my OGP and after too many hours failing to flash stock on it I sent it to get the $50 treatment (they provide great service). In the meantime I bought a G2 on fleabay with broken glass for $115, also got a $60 LCD assembly. The G2 is a really easy phone to work on so screen replacement is quick and painless.

I have been using the G2 for a few days and couldn't help sharing battery life. My OGP had set a new standard for battery life but I could never get much over 3hrs screen on and still have 24hrs of use. Below is what the G2 can do in a stockish state (plenty of xposed tweaking on stock kk).

Before you close the thread, my two cents:
I had a G2 for a couple of weeks but couldn't afford to keep it. My opinion: It rocks! I mean, the battery life on that thing is just out of this world sick!
I'm just left wondering what the secret is to that technology? How did they do it?
Not only that, but the screen is so bright in the sunlight as well! And its a good feel in the hands. I wish my OGP were as bright in the sun. But I gotta say, my OGP is a bit brighter than the Note2 I just sold for $118.

Just read tyhe anandtech G2 review..there is a big section on battery life, with details on how a combo of the snapdragon 800 and power saving during static display leads to such good battery life on the g2
