    So i picked up a GNex yesterday morning and an extended life battery. I was charging it on the way home and unplugged it at 7:30 pm, after playing with it some and doing some internet browsing, by 11:00 pm i was at 35%. i set it down about 11 and woke up at 6:30am today and was at 34%. Seeing that, im assuming its not a rogue app keeping it awake. On the ride in i drained the battery (it wasnt my day to drive lol). I plugged it in once i was at work about 9:30, and it said it was fully charged at 11:30. We went to lunch and i used it for about 30 mins off and on to browse the internet and it dropped to 85%. 15% in just 30 mins in my browser is rediculous. My screen is showing up as top useage at 65%, but i have the brightness set to 25%.

    Could anything else be causing it?

    If you're using LTE--that's the problem.
