    Here's mine. Not stellar but not as bad as many here claim.

    This cycle majority of the time was on Wi-Fi but even still with my GNex rooted running Liquid the closest I came to this was 25-27 hours standby on mostly Wi-Fi. My normal usage is texting, streaming music while I drive, Facebook and YouTube.

    This screenshot is more indicative of what I normally get.
    Don't get me wrong I still love android but I started out with the original iPhone in 2007 and after using four android phones I wanted to come back and I'm glad I did. Now next year when my contract is up with VZW I'll probably get the nexus when it's released.

    Ugh that UI. Someone would have to pay me to go back to iOS. I'm currently getting a full day of use with my Nexus 4 and that's with moderate usage throughout the day. If a phone can get me through the day without a charge with moderate usage like calls, texts, email and music then its good for me.

    I have to admit my iPhone 5 gets way better screen on-time. Generally I get around 4 hours or so on the i5 and my old Verizon GNex would barely get 2 hours with 25% brightness with most everything turned off. I can't wait to try the N4.

    I've charged every smartphone I've owned nightly. You think I'm trying to go the next day on 50% charge?! I own a smartphone for a reason, I'm a heavy user. If I wasn't, I'd be using a "dumbphone".

    What are the onscreen times though? If the n4 can pull down 3 hours on screen I'd be happy

    I may be wrong but in iOS if you don't fully charge the phone to 100% your usage and standby don't reset. So how do I know if that is legit? Again I may be wrong but I did have an I phone and I thought that's how it was.

    I met to quote the iOS screen shot. I'm a terd.don't feel like looming for the post.

    that would make sense. I've heard that the battery for the nexus is only 2100 MhZ or whatever the units are for it. Maybe i'm wrong but I do know that the android takes a lot to work.

    I posted earlier and just wanted to update. I was really impressed when I saw 44% left with over 17 hours discharging. Over I am very satisfied with the battery performance. These results where with moderate use on the web and streaming Google Play Music for about an hour.

Do i have to mess with Apn setting everytime i put the sim card in the devices? Also after setting the APN settings up for the N4 and when i switch back to the iphone 5 will my LTE work flawlessly?? Thanks for any response
    It's strange hearing about all these Nexus 4 issues, I wonder what happened, Nexus 7 is quite impressive.

    Luckily Xperia S gives me about a day or so battery life on moderate use, also at night it drops about only 10-15%.

    I'm wondering what's going on with the Nexus 4.

    In real world use iPhone 5 can go for 2 days. As in you don't need to use a battery tracker, you can just use it for two days without charging.

    I have had 4 different iPhone models (iPhone 2G, iPhone 3G, iPhone 4, and iPhone 5). I got the N4 on launch day and love it. I have completely stopped using my iPhone 5 and have put it up on eBay. The battery life is not near as bad as some people are making it sound. With the same amount of use that I did on my iPhone 5 I am able to get through the day and still have 60% of my battery left when I get home. That is to say I use it pretty heavily for about 12 hours. I use it for tethering, sms, facebook, and surfing the web. Having been an "Apple fanboy" for so long this phone has completely transformed me. I will not be going back to an iPhone any time soon. Do not let the horror stories on here scare you off. This is an amazing phone.

    I have also switched from iOS. Curious as to why people are having some major issues with the Nexus4 though.
