I was in Houston at a Conference this past week and rocking my Nexus in the sea of all the Windows and iphones. I have 3 batteries and I only had to swap around 2 of them each day. VZW's coverage even inside the convention center was great. I did have a lot of switching between 3G and 4G which is why my battery drained much faster than I normally see. I was also checking work e-mail a LOT (which I don't normally do on my phone), and I used the calender to keep track of where I should be and when. I didn't notice any other Nexus's there but all the iphone users were chained to a wall with their chargers every chance they got. I was easily going 6-7 hours before I had to swap. And it was great just to change out a battery and go and not be searching frantically for an outlet. Yupp, I'm still a happy Nexus owner. Hoping for the next SW update so my phone gets even better!
