View Full Version : Nexus 4 Wired Review says battery is good

Nov 4, 2012, 02:49 PM
When it comes to battery life, the Nexus 4 is also performs just below the One X and the iPhone. Under normal use, I could go a day before having to charge it. If I was using the handset non-stop, I’d have to charge the Nexus 4 before I left work. This is good battery life, but not exceptional.

Whole review below


Hope it is better with final OS release.

Keeping in mind the software isnt a finished product and it should be better. It also said it isnt quite as good as the iP5 and i assume that has a good battery, ...though i dont have one. And ive no idea how good or bad the One X battery is. Some say the GS3 battery isnt good but mine is.

So i see hope that it will be better in the end.

Yup that's one thing I could not stand with my One X and 4S. I'm expecting a lot better since it has a such a big battery with no LTE.

I think the battery life we've seen in various reviews is quite good, but I was expecting much better considering it's powering a S4 processor, 2100 MAH battery, and only HSPA+ data speeds.

The verge review says the battery life is very good. I think we are going to have to see what happens with final software. Why the hell google sent out review devices without final software I will never understand.

i saw some benches people made, and under browsing it last 1 hour longer then the ip4, which to me for my usage the ip4 has great battery life


but like someone said this is still pre release. so if radios are not optimize and they have process just running in the background it will be a bit poor.

Maybe it means the european one, based on Tegra 3. Much worse than the Qualcomm AT&T one.
