    I think carrier would have the biggest affect on battery life. I am with Sprint, and my battery life is ok. I think it is due to cell quality, and band types.

    Devices: Current: Nexus 5, Moto X, Galaxy Tab 2 (7.0); Retired: Galaxy S2 (Epic 4G Touch); Traded: Galaxy S3

    Battery life is terrible. Don't expect more than 4 hours of screen time.

    Here's an example of a typical day with my phone. I charged it twice during the day to make it last throughout the day, otherwise it would be dead by now.

    Unlike most people who barely use their phone and claim the Nexus 5 has great battery life because it lasts for days while they barely use it, I actually USE my phone throughout the day. Not on it constantly, but it's what I could consider to be normal usage while I'm at work.

    As you can see I'm at 21% left after a 13 hour day. Every time I used my phone whether for voice calls or or whatever, the battery life drops significantly. I had 3hr7m59s of screen time throughout the day and 3h29m25s of talk time (not pictured). And once again, I charged my phone twice during the day.

    Like I said before, do not expect to get more than 4 hours of actual on screen usage out of the Nexus 5.

    Battery life is definitely going to vary by user and use. The AC review puts it slightly better than the Nexus 4, which I think is probably echoed in other reviews across the Web. Take a look at it here: www.androidcentral.com/nexus-5-review
