Question GPS and battery performance for Ingress?

Hello, I am looking for a new phone and Xperia Z is currently the favorite choice, however I have questions regarding why exactly I want new phone.
I want to play Ingress, but my current one, LG L9 have serious problems with GPS. (In details here).
I want to know, how good is GPS performance? Any Ingress players here with experience how this phone handles Ingress using GPS?
How good is battery? I see that Xperia Z doesn't have much larger capacity than L9, and considering it has full hd screen, I wonder wouldn't it deplete even faster?

Hi
GPS is good. But if you update to 4.3 it will be bad... But 4.4.2 and 4.2.2 is works great!

Battery is also good. For me i get 4 hours with screen on and wifi and google chrome without break. If screen off you will get -4 every night

Thanks
