The 4S would have had equally bad battery life under the same circumstance.
but the 4S didn't have LTE. You're right though about the chips, and I knew that with the next gen chips efficiency would be better but as i said i had to bounce for a while and take a break. Lets also not forget that the CDMA Gnex had horrible signal strength something that is independent of what type of chip is in it. Had the CDMA Gnex had a newer chip i bet the battery life would still below average because of that. During my trials and tribulations i did have a Droid RAZR for about two days. Yes the signal was much much better but then i was also giving up features that the GNex had.
