    Default Nova Prime draining battery faster?

    I downloaded Nova Prime a few days ago and my battery life seems worse. Has anyone else noticed this? I haven't changed any settings.

    How much worse? I just reluctantly loaded my previous purchased nova prime. I haven't paid any attention in regards to battery life so I would definitely love to see the responses to this thread.

    Been using Nova prime for several years on all my devices. I have never seen any adverse effect on battery life from it. Every once in a while I try the stock launcher on my devices but always go back to Nova. Battery life seems .the same between stock & Nova. I like the consistency & features between devices, both Phone & Tablet, with Nova.

    I've always gotten bad battery life with nova! The nova occult members will never admit it though!

    I can't really compare since I never spent a day with the stock launcher.

    Having said that my battery life is amazing.

    I didn't have a problem with the stock launcher and only went to Nova Prime because I wanted the unread counts notifications. I mainly do FB, email, some internet, camera, and some music but I'm pretty good about closing programs in the task manager throughout the day. I'd be maybe 70% by the end of the day depending on how much I used it. Yesterday was the worst day for battery life, I rarely used it and it was down to 50% in the early evening.

    With heavy use on TW, I have gotten it down to the 30s but that's rare. Today we were at the zoo so I barely used it. I noticed it when we left that it was down to 61% so I charged it in the car for an hour bringing it to the low 80s. Now it's down to 59% and I used it for a picture once in the few hours since we've been home. I might go back to TW and see if it improves.
