    I agree with you and i think the revolution is not needed for the operating system nor the screen. Its the battery thats too small..for my old phone there was a 800mAh battery, and that phone lasted me a few days easy..
    There are some great options for batteries, problem is they are still too expensive since they dont get manufactured in that volume they are needed..which is truly sad....maybe we'll get some good news soon? who knows..but yes as it is now..you cant use the iphone 4s nor the galaxy nexus too its full potential..because of battery life..and thats just sad..

    google/vzw probably knew about the problem and are working on it, fixing problems is what google does best imo :p

    Yep I saw the commercial that said just that. Also don't use it as a hot spot for long. Thanks for telling us how we are supposed to use our phone. I know I appreciate it

    I charged mine at night BEFORE retiring since it didn't get a whole day out of it. Went to bed on 100% wake up to 50% drain WITHOUT EVEN USING IT!

    As noted, there are some phones that have a problem with the Android OS and the "Keep Awake" time. In stock form and with every rom (except one) that I have installed, my "Keep Awake" time was always about 50-60% of my total battery time. If the phone had been off charger for 8 hours, I'd have 4-6 hours of Andorid OS "Keep Awake" time. This was true even if the phone had been in my pocket unused.

    This rom specifically addresses the issue: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1402350 This is from post #1: "screen off (by user) timeout override -> by default android only uses a timeout when the screen times out by itself. this lets you force android to use the same timeout for when you turn the screen off yourself"

    This has dramatically reduced my Keep Awake times and has helped my battery usage. YMMV

    Good luck.

    Pretty decent day for me. GummyNex and Matrix 1.5 kernel clocked to 1.2 and undervolted (still trying to find my lowest values).

    I'm pretty happy with the battery life on this, for a dual core 4.65 inch screen I was expecting to drain a lot faster. On stock ROM made a few phone calls, listen to Pandora on my way to work, did some browsing while waiting for my food, took a short video and some pictures thus the charging spike while transferring them to my laptop. Overall I'm happy.

    Do we agree that Anandtech is more accurate than other tech sites? If we agree on that....according to Anandtech's Bench tool...the Verizon G Nex battery life isnt as good as some other current phones, including the GSM G Nex. One could say, well yea....its isnt LTE. Well the biggest difference is talk time. The talk time of the Verizon G Nex is low, surprisingly low compared to other current phones.

    They didn't review it yet, but included it on their Bench tool. So depending on what you do with this phone....battery life could be alot worse than other phones. Thats out the box. Custom kernels and extended batteries might be its saving grace for some ppl.

    I noticed this today. My battery was doing great until i got on a long call. I was losing over 15% an hour with data and screen off. Im still completely stock.

    I was pretty appalled at the battery drain. I bought the extended battery for $25 when I got the phone. I read on here a couple tips that appear to b helping. 1) I turned off NFC and 2) I turned off Facebook notifications.

    I've been conditioning the battery for the past couple days. So far I've had the phone on for 5hrs 23min and I'm at 57%. I played some games, surfed a bit, and been reading posts here. Its early but this feels more in line with what I saw with my X2's battery life.
