    Default Battery life worse after JellyBean?

    So I notice that my battery life has been a lot worse. I think it has to do with signal as I feel the signal strength is weaker. Here are my battery stats.

    Odd. I have found mine to be about the same, if not slightly better.

    No I was not on WiFi all day. I forget WiFi on when I go to work, and we don't have WiFi there. I get good coverage and signal. 2100mah OEM Samsung battery.

    I wonder why I don't have to disable anything to get good battery life...

    i'm on a rooted unlocked vzw gnex...aokp jb1 leankernel, but i think i have some good advice.

    watchdog helps monitor for misbehaving apps, and in my experience doesnt drain much extra at all (according to gsam battery monitor, .4% of ~30% so LOW).

    checking graphs can help you see if you are getting bad cell service.

    google now does increase drain depending on your settings. many of its services have to constantly ping your location among other things.

    some general knowledge: your phone doesnt actually charge up to 100%, and so you may see it fall fast immediately after charging to what it reports as 100%. this is to protect it's long term life. also, charge it often trying to keep the percentage between ~40 to ~95. for those who saw their level drop fast was it after charging? after an account sync? in bad service area?

    I too have noticed significantly reduced battery life and increased charge time since my Samsung Galaxy Nexus was updated to JB. As a note, I just reset my phone back to stock and then rooted it. Still on the stock ROM, though.

    I've noticed mine getting progressively worse. I'm having to charge it 4 to 5 times a day. I've got CyanogenMod 10 ROM on board and use the profiles to switch between usage settings when at work, home and driving. I'm managing the phone as best I can, but it doesn't seem to be making a difference. I'm reading in several other forums that over time, users of the Galaxy Nexus are finding the battery to be terrible. I'm beginning to think I'm just going to have to live with it...

    So I decided to implement Gekko's suggestions, basically micromanaging the phone and completely negate the dynamic multimedia experience of the smartphone. Even implementing his suggestions, I only got ~8 hours of battery life. Very annoying.

    1. huh? how exactly are you "completely negating the dynamic multimedia experience of the smartphone"? what are you not able to do as i result of these settings?
    2. so you went from 3 hours of battery life to 8 hours with the new settings?
