    I might be jumping the gun, but I have only had 4.3 for an hour. And have been using the phone since. And in about of hour of on screen time, testing out the new features, I have only lost 4 percent battery.... In an hour.

    1 hour screen time and lost only 4%... This is madness!! :P

    when i charged fully last night at 100% and check my phone in the morning... standby time looks to have improved quite a bit... at 94% after 10 hours.
    normal usage i dont know cause i do plug it in throughout the day and i have light and heavy usage days... but from standby point... looks like a real improvement.

    Update with a screenshot moments ago... quiet sunday so moderate usage... but i'm happy with my battery usage. have to take more time and probably different if i was browsing a lot today or using maps or navigation, it seems that it has improved in standby time. (I did make one change from 4.2.2 to 4.3 where I went down to 50% brightness... I know it will probably help in usage... but still think standby has improved)

    THIS IS JOKE, i had problems with battery earlier, but after this update, its damn pathetic!

    Full charged phone 8 AM, now 2.40 PM, already 45% left... i did nothing with phone at all, only 5 mins on wifi, whole time phone laid in drawer... funny part is - phone warm, almoust ~38C temperature, wut ?

    All programs killed, no wifi, no BT, RAM used about ~460 , brightness - auto.
    JOKE. Look screen (completed about 3 messages in ~7 hours). Hm ?

    Im dissapointed. Before update, my battery survived about 1 day with doing nothing... what else i can say, what should i do ?

    I'm getting similar. Wouldn't say as bad as yours nut definitely worse than 4.2. I've had 7h 42m with messaging at 57% which is the top item. Currently 83%. Used to be able to go about 14hrs on this percentage

    After 4.3 update, I think my battery life has declined. Initial observation. Will need to monitor more closely to see if true. If so it'll be a disappointment.

    I'm experiencing the same thing. I can't pretend I've been scientific about my use, but since the update, I'm not making it through most days without needing a recharge, whereas I was before. I'm wondering if the new bluetooth stack may be a contributor. I use a jaybird headset for working out/ running, and I know the new BLE stack was included. The headset is 2.1+EDR.

    I've seen a significant drop in battery performance on my Nexus 4 since the update. Previously the battery would quite typically only drop a few percent overnight with everything turned off. Now it is dropping 30-40% and the thing that is apparently burning up the battery is the OS! Usage was really good before, but over the last few days it has been terrible.

    I tried restarting my nexus once and Android OS issue disappeared.

    I'm on CM 10.2 (android 4.3). I've noticed improvement in the battery life but really it's going from poor back to normal. When I first got the phone in november the battery life was great on stock 4.2. I could go through a whole day with heavy use and still have 5-10% left by the time i got home (leave for work at 7 get home at 6-630). When I was updated to 4.2.2 stock it was awful. I barely went 8 hours off a full charge. I changed to CM 10.1 and say a slight improvement but it was still abysmal compared to CM 10. Now I'm merely back to where i started getting about 12 hours out of moderate usage, but again, it's CM 10.2, not stock 4.3. This is also on mobile network 3G/HSPA+ all day until i get home, brightness fluctuating from 30-50%, frequent checking of email, push email sync, and some youtube videos on the bus in the morning.

    One thing I noticed on CM 10.1 when i flashed the old radio that allowed LTE was that the battery life didn't die as quickly as i thought it would. I think the constant switching from 3G to HSPA+ takes a huge toll on battery life. Has anyone else noticed that battery life is better on LTE?
