I got 10hr 53mins on 4G today with 8% left before I charged, are you streaming netflix or anything? Just trying to figure out how I'm seeing such a different result when I know I'm on the phone constantly.
Edit: I'm really not worried about it to be honest, every 4g phone that has been released always improves a great deal after a few updates. That's been the case with the Bolt as you know and the Bionic just greatly improved it's battery life with it's latest update as well.
Issue 22878 - android - Galaxy Nexus ICS 'Android OS' High Battery usage - Android - An Open Handset Alliance Project - Google Project Hosting - appears to be a software issue, maybe a driver issue. I would be more than happy with 10 hours on 4G the whole time.
I can't even make it a whole day without having to charge. I have ONLY used 3G when using data. Other than that, I've had data turned off. Can't even handle that. :|
EDIT: 11 minutes later after posting this, (my wifi signal got better; also, I'm on the computer now, so I haven't used it since my original post), and it's now at 46%. Wat.

Think I'm just in a bad spot too. Never had a good reception at all in this house. I'm not surprised 4g drains the battery so quickly I'm just surprised that Android isn't much more efficient with battery. For a 4g phone I know this is pretty good on battery life. No lie it is much better than my incredible that I used.
