    Phone Arena has a battery rundown of the Nexus 5, and it came back with pretty foretold results. From what I have been reading and what I got from others that have the new Nexus Phone is that the battery is not that good just like the Nexus 4 before this one and the Galaxy Nexus before that. I just wish they would deal with the battery issue. That would take help a lot with this device.

    Our Nexus 5 battery life test is ready

    All the more reason to get a G2 and flash an AOSP ROM. :icon_ banana:

    If you're going to put the LG G2 on there, you should put the Note 3 on there. I'm very happy with its battery life.

    I love my Gnote3 battery life. It is the best. These other phones don't compare.

    lol. I guess I'm not even close to typical then. My typical usage for the S4 and G2 are 4 or 5 times that long. But anyway, it is surprising that the N5 is that close to the others.

    The software optimizations could be why it's getting great battery life. If you put an AOSP Rom on it, you would be losing those optimizations from LG.

    If you go to the website, they have comparisons for the Note 2 and Note 3.... the G2 bests both of them in that test. Seems like the G2 has some pretty good value overall, or their test is flawed.

    I thought KitKat had major tweaks to improve battery life?

    After looking into this some more I find that there are some people getting up to 14 hrs off of one charge on the Nexus 5. I have gotten at most 2 days and at least 18 hrs on a charge with my GNote3 with heavy use.

    I'd be curious on the N5 results once everyone gets to using them ...I'm too spoiled with my phone ...14 hrs doesn't cut it for me ..hehe
    And I'd like too see results on LTE only ...I can go days on wifi ..lol
