    I was hoping those of you who have updated to the official Jellybean build from Verizon could tell us what your battery life is like? Any differences (good or bad)?

    (If you post numbers, please tell whether or not you're using the extended battery.)

    If you are using Google Now to its fullest potential, you WILL take a hit on battery life vs ICS due to it using location services a lot to give you relevant information.

    Well, then, can you say how long you are able to make it off the charger before the GNex gets to 20%? Mention your usage patterns too.

    No idea, I've never been off charger enough times and long enough to get down to 20% while on JB .

    Too busy playing with it? :-P

    I'm just asking because I'm looking to get the GNex on Monday. I'm getting it at Best Buy so that I can exchange it for free if it doesn't work out. But it'd be cool to know ahead of time what to expect with battery life. I haven't heard great things so far.

    Get a few extra batteries and an external battery charger. Swap out as needed.

    Some of you guys' battery life seems really bad. I have been off the charger for about 4-5 hours with moderate use (testing, a phone call, Tapatalk, some web browsing, etc). I still have 80 percent left.
    I am using the 2100 Samsung extended battery and I am on wifi.

    I think it's a mix of me using Pandora all morning on LTE and my extended battery being new. It's only gone through a few cycles and may still be calibrating

    Wish people would report screen on time. That's all I care about. I don't care how long your battery lasts when you're not even using the phone.

    Battery life is so subjective and pointless to compare, IMO. Even with screen on time you need to know their brightness setting, apps running, cell coverage, if on 3g or 4g or wifi, what you are doing with that screen on time (browsing Web vs playing games is going to make a HUGE difference), etc etc.. You get the idea.

    Battery life seems to be slightly better for me, only one data point though. Currently at 73% available after 11 hr using my Seidio 3800mah (LTE/GPS on, bluetooth/wifi off, auto brightness, half of Google Now features on)... normal usage, mostly internet browsing, phone calls, txting.

    I've found that using the extended battery shortens battery life more than the stock one does. I use the stock battery and live in a 4g area and get a full days use with moderate usage

    How to turn off Google search after jelly bean update, eating my battery
    im assuming you mean google Now polling?

    open google now (hold the home button and swipe up to "google"
    scroll all the way down to the bottom to "show more cards" and hit the three dots on the right notating a menu
    settings
    google now
    ON/Off button top right.

    hope that helped

    That is not physically possible, assuming you have non-defective, non-cheap extended batteries.

    I agree. It isn't possible as long as both batteries are OEM.

    This is what I have been averaging with the new update and the 2100 battery.

    Could you clarify? You mean they wear out sooner? Because they definitely won't die sooner...

    I have an OEM extended (2100 MaH) battery, but the stock does appear to last longer. HOWEVER, thanks to Edwill86, I turned Google Now off (but I love how I can still use voice search to bring up the cards and information I want), so hopefully my battery will be much better than it was before!
