    Default Battery on gnex is bad

    I am not 100% sure if it's just me or if my battery is bad now.

    My phone has been out of the charger for about 6hrs 20m. Screen time is 56% time on for 1h 2m. Battery is at 68% right now. I don't remember a few weeks ago my battery draining this fast. I JUST reformatted my phone so everything is clean and fresh. So I'm not sure if I should buy a new battery or not. I have juice defender on settings aggressive right now as well.

    Any tips, tricks, ideas, advice?

    Also, my phone is NOT rooted, it is fully stock.

    Lol I have juicedefender BECAUSE my battery is draining quickly. I installed it after I reformatted. And what mAh batteries do you have, I don't want an extended one, and for how much?

    Do you have facebook on and notifications set up? Also, another app known for major battery drain is Facebook messenger. I kept facebook installed on my phone but disabled the notifications and saw a significant increase in battery life.

    Also, what is your signal strength like? Any phone calls?

    If you can post a screen shot of your battery life.



    This is mine today and is about typical. I average between anywhere between 15-17 hours. With 1 1/2 to 2 Hrs. screen on time.

    Are they for the GSM model (i9250 from the play store US)? And how much are you selling for?

    Haven't installed facebook app yet, I do however have the fb messenger installed.
    Signal strength is usually at full or 85-90%. Wifi MOST of the time. No phone calls.

    I think the blue line under the battery drain graph is the wake locks. Yours look like it is awake a lot for some reason. In the battery monitor you can look what is waking your phone.

    It doesn't show what app or anything is waking my phone up.

    In the playstore there is Wakelock Detect which is free or Better battery stats.The latter is paid but you can get a free version of it from XDA. Both of those should tell you which apps are doing all the wakelocks. Looking at your screenshot it shows a good bit of usage by Maps, so I figure it is something in there.
    One other thing to look at is how many widgets you have. I only have a couple of them on GNEX. Sometimes if you have a bunch of them they can also cause excessive drain.
