    Google and Samsung not mentioning the battery life makes me nervous.

    just buy an extra batter from amazon for like $20 and dont worry about it. plus the Verizon one may have something in the range of 2000 mah battery since the case has to be slightly thicker anyway to get the LTE antenna in there.

    To answer the title of this thread... No to both, haha.

    Someone noted that the pictures of the battery show mention of the NFC Antenna being part of the battery itself. There are fears this will greatly increase the cost of an extra battery.

    I makes me a little nervous too. But on the other hand the Motorola Razr has almost identical specs with the exception of a smaller lower resolution screen and its still running gingerbread and they are claiming 12.5 hours of talk. So im hopeful.

    I had read somewhere (not sure where) that somebody who had the galaxy nexus averaged around 6 hours of constant heavy use. But I don't know what they define as "heavy use".

    Seriously man, people have got to stop allowing this to happen.

    At what point do shady back room deals start happening?

    HTC- hey Verizon , we will release a severely underpowered battery with our phone and then we will split the profits with you when you sell the extended batteries.

    Verizon-sounds profitable...let's do it.

    You see the problem here?

    Spare batteries are like expansion packs for video games. You're ticked that they didn't do it right in the first place, but you know you're probably gonna end up buying it.

    Well, HTC heavy use is 2 phone calls and leaving Wifi on all day. (No gps or data, that'd be extreme, nobody uses that!) xD I think they've finally gotten it to last for about that with a couple phone calls! ;)

    From what I've read though, Sammy has pretty good battery life! :)

    Swyped and sent through the interwebz to you!

    Yeah, the only way I've found to get good battery life from my HTC Inc. is to root the thing and get rid of Sense. Now I can get 24+ hours per charge. A friend somehow gets 18+ hours out of his Inc2 with sense and without rooting and replacing the kernel or anything. Wish I could get that out of my Inc with Sense.. at least until it's new phone time, which I think is December for me..

    I actually have a samsung charge and my battery life is horrible. it will last 8 hours if i do NOTHING on my phone and I use android advanced task killer. If I use my gps i might get 4 hours (I'm charging my gps in the car while I'm using it too by the way.) The Nexus doesn't have bloatware so I hope that's the only reason why my phone is dying. Sad to say this but my HTC Incredible actually had better battery life than my charge!:hail:

    Advanced Task Killer is probably your issue. Uninstall that crap and see if your battery life improves.

    Agreed. You don't have that set to auto-kill stuff, do you, huskyhavok? Because it'll just keep killing every several seconds when the killed process starts back up. I use ATF, but have it set to manual, only killing apps/processes when I choose (generally when first powering up the phone).
