Dave usual setting to mess with are making sure you have your wi-fi(off), bluetooth(off), gps(off), sync(prefered on but off when needed), and brightness to a minimal in order to save more battery..as well as some apps that may be in the background using resources such as a live wallpaper or facebook.etc.

karrot screen time is basically showing us the battery stats of your phone so we can decifer what exactly is draining your battery.

I think that's defective. Even with everything turned on with auto sync and no wifi/nfc I get at least 3.5 hours of screen on time. I get 4 if I'm lucky sometimes, but never gotten anything less than 3+ hours of screen on time. I also stream music through my whole work shift through google play and I listen to a lot of podcasts as well. I usually get 12-16 hours with 3.5 hours of screen on.

I keep my brightness around 10-15% and I use 2 widgets and a light background. Only have about 15 downloaded apps.

If u have full brightness, the nexus fits really fast

Yeah I don't see why anyone would need full brightness unless you were purposely trying to make your phone die. Full brightness is barely brighter than 50%, and 15% brightness on the nexus 4 is about 70% on an iPhone 4s

I love the brightness. I mean i put it on the minimum and it is still brighter than probably 25% of ipod.

One thing you should 100% try. Which h increased my battery life beyond belief ( I actually get more then 8 hours!

Is disabling Google Now... I hate that I did. But its a battery saver.... And I still can use it. I just don't have the cards auto update and stuff...

That way the phones not constantly trying to figure locations and grab driving times and weather and what not....

Helped out a lot...
