If you guys keep complainin bout the battery life stop using it all day, 3000 mah is more enough better than 2000 mah battery.

I am not sure why google went for 2300mAh battery...may be N5 have igzo display and kit-kat will have some sort of power optimizations.

Use Easy battery Saver/Juice Defender ultimate for long lasting battery. Stop complaining about bigger battery. People are asking for bigger battery only because it was rumoured. 2300mah is still good enough at this price and the specs.
