    Half a day is terrible. I can usually expect 1 to 1.5 days on a charge with moderate use. Perhaps there may be a battery defect with your unit. Of course I know different app setups can make a lot of difference on battery life but half a day is quite low.

    As for switching from iPhone, my fiance is all about apple but after using my nexus she says she will switch.

    I think I'm just gonna sell mine soon let me use it for a full week. My download speeds are shot. At&t can't do anything about it. I can't even check instagram when I'm outside. Phones great battery's shot data sucks. Oh I forgot my biggest problem is the fact when I connect to the Bluetooth on my car I have to play the songs from my phone unlike my iPhone I can use the screen on my dash

    I love this phone I know android wasn't ever great on battery I had a G1 I think Google did the best with the n1 battery life was great.. I will let my battery drain today and see how it does it wouldn't hurt to sell on eBay I'll probably get 400-450 for it

    Half a day is not right. I had 19 hours on mine with fairly decent usage. Granted around 5-7 of those hours where on airplane mode at night, but still....

    You on wifi? Also, I'd check your sync settings. There are sooooo many things that are trying to sync and update that you can crank em down and save a ton of battery. Oh... and what about your screen settings? auto?

    Also post up a screenshot of your battery usage, that will help give us an idea of what is eating your battery.

    Yup everything is done on WiFi since my mobile internet sucks..gonna check the sync setting right now, my screen kills 35% of the battery and it is on auto and the android system kills the rest

    I have an iPhone 5 and waiting for my Nexus 4 to show up next week. Its my 2nd Android device after getting the Nexus 7 on black friday and really getting to love it. In regards to the APN settings i will followed the above settings. Im also going to be switching between the i5 and N4 every so often. 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

    Apn setting only effect the phone setting nothing to do with the sim i beleive so when you pop the sim back into the iphone 5 it should be no prob. Too be honest i thought it was a great idea of switching back and forth. Now i feel like its going to get annoying

    Takes less than a minute! Lol. As long as you have everything on both phones like contacts, and other important things then its worth it.

    The N4 is a great phone but it's hard to like it when the iPhone does everything so nice and you're used to it. This is now my 3rd attempt (and best attempt) at switching to Android and I just couldn't part with the amazing battery life, camera, and apps of the iPhone. I'll probably get the next Nexus phone and try it again, only to revert back to the iPhone... but oh well, it's fun and I enjoy it.

    There is A LOT of room for growth in iOS, and I hope to see that coming soon with Forstall going bye bye. We shall see.

    I have an iPhone 5 and two days is greatly exaggerating IMO. iP5 has excellent battery life and realistically with moderate use you only need to charge it once a day. Though the Battery life on the N4 isn't the best it's not completely horrible. Anyone that's considering getting a N4, don't let threads like this discourage you, it's an excellent device.

    Same here my man it use to be the other way around for me when i had the iphone 3gs i switched to the nexus 1 when i had the iphone 4 i switched to the tmobile g2x phone was terrible then to the htc sensation but ever since the iphone 4s then the 5 its hard to like android. The Nexus 4 is a really really really great phone. I might keep it i still gonna use it through out the week. Safe to say im switch back though

    There's no way your iP5 is getting 2 days on a charge with what your saying. My iP5 with normal usage gets me through the day and if I don't charge that night, I would have to charge in the car in the morning.

    I don't understand why everyone can't get through a day using the N4....I got every page on my N4 with widgets everywhere, NFC off, 25 or 50% screen, and normal data usage, and have had no problems these past few days.

    This might be why your battery life is so low. When the phone doesn't have good signal, it constantly spends battery resources trying to find a better signal and better data network. If your phone is on AT&T, did you check the APN settings?

    download Carat app it will tell you what is hogging your battery.

    also go to serttings, your google account and turn off a lot of the Sync. those drain the crap out of your battery

    I don't know about you but my mates charge their iphone 5's daily. Your are most definitely doing something wrong to drain the battery!
    Try downloading a power saving app.

    I don't buy the 2 days use with an iPhone 5.

    I just don't, especially after so many customers are complaining to me about battery life and how it doesn't last
