Not sure where else to turn on this but I have major issues for my battery on my Verizon Galaxy Nexus. The typical day for me consists of waking up around 7am with a fully charged phone and having to recharge the battery because its down to about 10-15% battery life by noon. This isn't normal right? I only turn my gps on when I'm driving (and even then, my phone is plugged into a car charger), my bluetooth is only turned on when I'm using a bluetooth receiver, and I use my wifi whenever possible but only turn that on when i know it's available (i.e. at home).
The charger I use at work is my work blackberry charger, and i've heard that that could be the problem due to different phone manufacturers chargers being different levels of efficient. Could that be the problem? Can anyone think of anything else that could possibly going on?
Thanks for the input!11-14-2012 12:09 PM
- Hi t_kopta,
Thank you for the response. Maybe I'm missing something but the Bluetooth consumption seems to be negligible. It doesn't show up on my battery setting but that might be because I don't turn it on unless I'm in my car using my car stereos Bluetooth receiver (and again, often on long drives when I'm using the bluetooth, I can plug it in to my car charger). t_kopta, or anyone else, do you have any other ideas?11-14-2012 12:43 PM
- Haha, rats, you're probably right about both those things come to think of it.
4g and 3g coverage in my area has always been a struggle in my area but I was told it was getting better... Maybe I'll just go buy a second battery and rotate the two, keeping them both charged. Thanks again for the help t_kopta!11-14-2012 02:06 PM
- Nope, this seems normal to me. Done everything in the world to try and get better battery and it just gets worse and worse... 4G on or off.. GPS on or off, Blue Tooth, It doesn't make a damn difference. My phone sleeps well and doesn't have many wake-locks yet, I can't go 12 hours without recharging.. and that's when I'm not even using the phone.. If the screen is on, it pretty much has to be plugged in or I lose a percent a minute..11-17-2012 01:43 AM

- Android isn't the problem. The Galaxy Nexus on Verizon is just a piece of sh!t.
Most people on here swing from the Gnex balls. They will tell you to root and get this ROM or that rom.
But you are probably like me and don't think that giving my hard earned $300 for a phone that I'M required to download better software because the 4G radios are chit and there is no power management to speak of.
Return the gnex as fast as you can!11-18-2012 06:31 PMLike 1
I expect you'll find a similar crowd in most of the AC device forums; people who are experiencing some problems, people who offer help and advice, and people who are enjoying the experience of going a step further. I have seen very few posts here where users say they feel they are 'forced' to root in order to have an 'acceptable' experience.
When the Galaxy Nexus came out, all of these facts were pointed out multiple times. It was likely that the Galaxy Nexus on Verizon wouldn't receive the level of support or attention we would all have liked for it to, but that's the trade-off for having a Nexus phone on Verizon. Finally, if you're comparing this phone to ones that have come out in the past four to five months, you need to be realistic. The Nexus may very well lose in all categories except software.
I'll agree with you that the battery life of this phone, when stock, is too short under typical use.11-19-2012 05:29 PMLike 7
- it is probably the battery itself.
dont get me wrong, this phone isn't GREAT on battery life, but after 4 hours you shouldn't have to plug it in.
i consistently can get 12 hours out of a charge.
i only say this because you aren't leaving stuff on (wifi BT,GPS ect) and you have taken a good look at your CPU (partial wakelocks, sleeping ect) and you say all seems normal.
if you REALLY like the Gnex as a phone, i would try another battery before i jump to any conclusions. if you simply cannot live with the battery life on a brand new battery, get something like the Razr MAXX HD or even the older MAXX as those things will go all day no problem.11-20-2012 10:13 AM
