Default Motion gestures

Is it a battery hog?

For my experience, I've had it on and in my normal use I still have over 40% left at the end of the day (16-18 hrs or so, my old GNex would have only lasted 8 hrs on typical use if I was lucky). I can't say I've gone without for comparison, but I've noticed that the phone does effectively sleep when it has been sitting still for a while and the motion gestures won't work until I've picked up the phone or jolted it a little so that probably cuts down on the battery impact. I wonder if some of the folks complaining about gestures being unresponsive just aren't "waking" the phone with some movement prior to using a gesture.
