    I keep wanting to buy the Nexus 6, but when I read this forum I keep seeing complaints about battery life. I was hoping that anyone who has had a G3 that converted to the Nexus could give me a better idea. If it is even a little bit better, then I am going to buy it ASAP. If not, I will probably wait for the G4

    Thanks in advance

    I came from the G3 before having the Nexus 6. Battery life on the Nexus is ok, not the best, but much better than the G3 in my experience. I would get around 3.5 hours screen-on time with the G3, and usually get close to 5 on the N6. Mixed usage, your mileage may vary, etc etc.

    I'm still waiting on the 5.1 update (ugh), but a lot of people are saying it's helping their battery performance a good bit on the nexus.

    I used the g3 on verizon for about 4 months last year. I would get about 4 to 4.5 hours screen time. I'm getting about 6 hours screen time on the Nexus and it's pretty consistent for me. Also on verizon 5.1. I think the nexus is a great phone so smooth. I did like the buttons on the rear for the g3.

    Hope you enjoy it, it's a great device. I sold my note 4 and iPhone 6 plus to use the nexus 6 as my daily, and I'm extremely happy with it.
