I've now been using my Nexus 4 for two and a half weeks and am very impressed with the device's battery life. My regular usage consists of an array of calls, texts, facebook, instagram, twitter, flipboard, and some browsing. I'm not a gamer and what media I do consume on the device consists of songs and podcasts. Today, when I woke up, I had 11% remaining after getting two days of life out of the battery. My previous phone was a Galaxy S2 and, while I was not disappointed in its battery life, I never experienced such battery stamina. On average, I've been getting 1 day and 14 hours out of each Nexus 4 charge. I had read both positive and negative accounts regarding the Nexus 4's battery ahead of making my purchase. So far, count me in the positive camp.
