In regards to your wifi, my One XL is dropping wifi signal constantly and falling back to 4G, my international One X has no such problems. I have both a 5G router and a netgear 3500L running newest tomato firmware. The phone intermittantly seems to sleep wifi and then reinitialize it... I have tried always on wifi setting to no avail, wondering if you or anyone else with a One XL is experiencing this problem?
My Wifi seems okay so far. I had one drop, but that's it. Perhaps it's an issue. I'll have to monitor the situation and let you know.
You've mentioned your Galaxy Nexus.. would you dump your Nexus for the XL? Considering everything. Screens, speed, camera, size/shape.. etc. Also figure in Sense 4.0.
I dumped my GNex for the Note, but the deal fell through and I ended up getting this. Frankly, the GNex is nice and I love AOSP, but the battery life is closer than it should be, the X screen is better, as is the SoC. I prefer the X build, but that is individual preference.

As you may recall, I mentioned in an earlier post that I have a profile that sets automatically at 11pm each evening to what is effectively airplane mode. This then automatically changes to my morning profile at 7am each morning.
On my previous phones, mostly HTC, but a few by Samsung (see signature), the battery would drop to anywhere from 95% to 92% during this "airplane mode" period.
With the international ONE X, however, it was still at 100% at 7am each morning. This is probably due to the use of the 5th core, where the phone goes into very deep sleep. However, I can now report that the Rogers unit is equally frugal.
Last night I charged my phone to 100%. I unplugged the phone at exactly 10:59pm, and then allowed it to automatically go into airplane mode at 11pm. I did not touch the phone until 5am this morning. Okay, it's not 7am, but 5am isn't much different when I tell you the results. Now you may be asking why I touched it at 5am. Well, I couldn't sleep, so I got up at 4am and went to work. Then, at exactly 5am, I woke up the phone, and the battery still indicated 100%. I can only assume that it would probably still be 100% at 7am, or maybe 99% at worst.
Regardless, it seems that in sleep mode, both phones use almost zero power.
It's not a technical test by any means, but it's a simple comparison. I will do more battery testing tomorrow when I have much more time to leave both phones with their displays on, and both in virtually the same "situation."
