    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.

    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.

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