Some Galaxy Nexus users reporting odd battery readings

The rumors we had heard about the Samsung Galaxy Nexus having very solid battery life do seem to be true, many users are reporting a couple days of use without charging, but there are also reports of odd readings with the battery monitor...

This is a discussion for a news. To read the whole news, click here

wow they tested the untested nexus in a room and the battery last 2 days... lets look at Android phones... and we all know the Android eat up your battery specially if they are LTE.. 2 days??.. now thats brainwashing... at its best...

Really? Because my THUNDERBOLT (known for bad battery life) gets anywhere from 10-15 hours with LTE turned on.

Granted, it was about 8-12 until I got Gingerbread but still. That's not that bad...

Brainwashing is YOU believing that "the Android eat up your battery".

I also get the same amount of battery I get out of my tbolt. I get a full days worth with a good amount of use. Just plug it in every night when I go to bed.

I will believe it only because you either rooted or did something to it... but it doesnt come like that out of the box... all of the 150 owners of the T-Bolt maybe you two geeks mees with the phone.. the other 148 owners are left with a and extra holster to carry their charger...

It\'s not rooted. Completely stock. You just have no clue what you\'re talking about.

Sorry.

You can nit pick all you want, I have LTE turned on and i\'m in an LTE area 80% of the time. I don\'t pick up the signal in my office though.

If you want I can walk outside and take another picture for you?

Actually....if you are not getting a strong connection to 4G at the time, or just not in a 4G area....it will drop back to 3G....to keep the data connection connected.

In my apt its a virtual dead zone...and I will be lucky to see 4G at all. Its either 3G, 1X or no signal unless I'm near a window. Go outside and 4G lights up.

So that screen shot of him being on 3G doesnt really tell anything. Just that at the time of the pic it was on 3G.

Cc unless you use zero data you\'re not getting that kind of battery life. I\'m very familiar with that phone. In needs to be recharged 2-3 times per day with average use.

What the f**k?! So I OWN the phone and use it EVERY day and you are very familiar?

Taco, go f**k yourself dude. You clearly have no interest in the truth. I have posted pictures of my battery life for you before.

I understand that you REALLY want to believe that all Android phones get terrible battery life, but i\'m sorry kiddo it\'s just not the truth.

Santa isn\'t real either. Sorry.

What some ppl dont realize is that after a few updates under its belt...the T Bolt turned out to be a decent phone. When it launched, yea it had issues.

It launched almost a year ago...those updates in that time helped it.

it may not end up with 2 days in real world use, but it should comfortably last a day, and that\'s all that really matters.

sorry Michael.. but it \'should\' last a day of usage.. it \'should\' also has been relased.. it \'should\' also comes in a 16Gb and 32GB.. the point... is all of this are assumptions.. and you are only msileading the fandroids that will expect to leave their house every morning without their charger because they were told that it will last them all day.. and didnt read the fine print....

I am working from assumptions based on testing and evidence presented to me. You are working from assumptions based on bias and the performance of unrelated devices. This is the first device running ICS, we don't know what Google has done to improve battery life in the software, so you using Gingerbread phones as reference is far more misleading than me using actual testing, even if it was done in a lab.

gingerbread phones...?? Michael what other phones are out there.. that I can compare?.. so Michael. asside form the test presented to you.. not as an editor. as you honest opinion..... do you believe google did address the battery life in the nexus?.. that what you stated ( battery last up to 2 days) is true?...

And btw... I used Android history to make my assumption.... not based no lab test... ICS Jelly bean.. or whatever android version... is up to the phone manufacturers.. not ICS... it will help but not go from 8 hours of normal usage to 2 days.. I will believe it when I see it... outside a lab...

You used an Android history that you made up.

Here's a crazy idea: don't try to compare, don't generalize.

From everything that I've heard, the Nexus has great battery life. I've heard a number of real world reports of users getting around 20 hours of heavy use and still having about 10% battery left. Do a Twitter search if you want real world accounts. Given everything that I've heard, I wouldn't be surprised if moderate use got you two days on the Nexus.
