    I agree that the screen on time should be part of the reporting, because even with my CDMA galaxy nexus I have pushed almost 28hrs with nearly no usage, where when i actually use it I'm lucky to get 3 hrs screen on time which is what is more important really.

    7h 51m its at 31%
    Yeah, take your brightness to about 40%. It might seem dark at first, but you will get used to it and won't notice after a few hours. I think 7h 51min is okay with 100% brightness.

    I guess moderate-heavy use.....(more moderate IMO) screen brightness 50%
    What's your "screen on" time. Just tap on "Screen" while checking battery stats. For me I never get more than 3 hr - 4 hr 30 min on any android phone.

    This is so true. I had the GNex also and it was horrible when the screen was on.

    Where in the world did you hear this? I'd like to see a link, because I think you just made that up. How would the color of the phone change its battery use?

    Third charge cycle. About an hour of phone calls and a lot of texting, too.

    Maybe you use the phone much more than they do. An hour of screen time in a day is really not much.

    For my third charge cycle, those stats I posted are really impressive. I should be seeing gains in the next two cycles as well, but even if that's the best I'll get, that's extremely good. I don't typically spend 3 hours of on screen time on my phone, but I've been really pushing the battery and it's not wilting. My average usage would probably be half of that, leading me to believe that I'll probably be going to bed with anywhere between 20-40% battery life still available. For a 4.8 inch screen, you can't go wrong with that at all.
