Battery is fine for me. I move between chargers. Desk to the car to the work and back for the most part. When I'm not iits good for the day.

I'm not a huge fan of having my phone on charge all the time tongue.gif I usually get through 2 days with 3-4 hours screen time, which is slightly worse than my old iPhone 4 but maybe above average for an android phone.

No it wasn't really directed at you but custom ROMs and Kernels do seem to have a positive effect if battery life. I'm not too sure how as this is my first android phone too, but I can only assume it reduces the power consumption of certain components. With a custom ROM and Kernel I get similar battery life to what I was getting with it stock and using a battery saving app like juice defender. Now with the custom ROM and Kernel and using the battery saving app I get even better battery life thumb.gif

If I am out most of the day with lots of texting and no talk time I usually use about ~40-45%. I just charge it every night though just to be safe

The LG Nexus 4 is suprisingly the best smartphone in terms for quality and price. The build quality is superb and the fact that it features a Snapdragon S4 Pro right now (instead of later) makes it even more attractive for purchase now.

I guess it's a bit more popular in countries that don't sell the international version of the SGS III, or countries where its hard to get hold of. So far the only Nexus 4 I've seen in real life is my own, I've never seen another one and don't know of anyone else who has one.

It would be popular EVERYWHERE if Google got enough out. If they get more out next gen then I should be on Any GSM carrier and be ready by the truck load unlocked.

Since this is Owners club i'll shoot here straight away. I'm in the market for a new phone (replacing HTC HD2) and i'm really set on buying Nexus 4 but the thing that concerns me is it's battery life. i hear most of my friends complain about it and that it doesn't even last through the day (usually calling and mail checking).

I do 2-3h talking daily, around 30 sms and 2 hours of web browsing (refreshing OCN home page at work when i can lol). Will N4 be sufficient or should i go for something else. (with my current phone i deal with chrger several times a day)

the other otions are Lumia 920 and SG note 2.

I don't have any issues with the battery. I typically get 3.5 ~ 4 hours of screen on time. If you like tinkering with your phone you'll hate the Lumia. The Note II will probably give you the best battery life and overall experience.

Generally i'd go for note 2 straght away but that "sweet" thing is just too big for me and in most cases i have to use both hands even for typing simple sms and that's quite annoying and frustrating.. also my wife said i look funny. I had it for a test run for 5 days.

I'll grab Nexus 4 (i'll have to wait 5 weeks for it since it's not available in my country) and see how it does. IMHO i just can't go wrong with that price/performance ratio.

p.s. also found suitable XDA case for it lol

I'm sure it will last you at least a day. I do quite a bit of email checking, message sending and about an hour of web browsing per day (maybe more) and It usually lasts me 1 day 15-20 hours, with a total of 3-4 hours screen time. I've noticed 3G will really take it's toll on the battery though, my battery has gone down 25% in 6 hours today with only 30 minutes of usage. Although from the mobile signal bar in the battery settings I can see I was it a fairly bad signal area for around 3 of those hours.
