Samsung GALAXY Nexus battery life test suggests impressive mileage
With their spacious, high-res displays, dual-core processors and 4G radios, today's Android heavyweights are an embodiment of cutting-edge technology. However, all of these goodies sure can give a smartphone's battery a good beating and drain it pretty quickly under heavy use.

LTE smartphones may be a good example of this as their LTE radios in particular are known to be pretty power-hungry, but the LTE-enabled Samsung GALAXY Nexus might be capable of giving you a relatively better mileage. A lucky individual who got to take Google's latest reference handset for a spin claims that they still had the device's battery meter at 45% after more than 5 hours of heavy usage (read: “lots of surfing”). Allegedly, the device had the display's brightness set to maximum during the test and only LTE connectivity was being used along the way.

Although we cannot really verify how far the GALAXY Nexus was pushed during the test, the screenshot provided by the tipster backs up their claim. Well, the Ice Cream Sandwich-touting handset is rumored to be not that far from launch, so it might not be too long before we find out how it really performs.

I have a hard time believing this as the display should be closer to 80% total useage. they should have posted a picture of the time on.

Why is Android OS showing such a high percentage? And here i thought that Google licked the Android OS Battery draining bug.

Why don't they show the display time as well? How do we know how long the screen has been on for?
