Default Snapdragon Battery Guru Nexus 4

Ok so decided to give it a try, took about 4 days in learning mode and now the battery savings has now started, I will charge it tonight and try it out tomorrow and hopefully I will see a huge difference.

Anyone that has this already try it?

I'd be interested to see what benefits you find, as it's constantly running in the background at a guess and would therefore, use battery to an extent anyway.

Question is - do the benefits outweigh :-)

I've been using it with Green Power. Currently on 68% after 23hrs moderate use.
It certainly seems to have lowered the Android OS and Android System percentages ....

Yes I updated it to 4.2.2 when the update rolled out and honestly I didn't see a difference in battery life, just a small one.

and for you to get 2 days of battery life? damn

Do you run Google Now? If so, try turning it off for a couple of days, did wonders for my battery life.

You don't have to disable Google Now to improve your battery. Just disable certain GPS features and auto sync and your battery won't suffer while you still get the benefits of Google Now.

Ok here's my take on this app, compared to Juice defender it actually kills my battery more than saving, Yeah I got maybe an extra hr or two out of my battery, but all it really does is turn on remembered Wi-Fi areas like at my house, which isn't necessary for me at home, and now it pretty much tells me every time there is an open hotspot, which is nice but as said I don't really need it since most of the time it runs better off the HSPA network from tmobile. The app just updated i'll give it another day and if I don't see a difference Im going back to Juice defender

The auto WiFi is irritating & why I uninstalled battery guru. Getting decent battery life for me with 4.2.2 & Franco kernel anyway. Qualcomm, try harder to make software that works as well as your processors.

Yea there is a way to disable it in the settings but all I did was just deactivate the whole thing and turned off the app, didn't uninstall just in case I want to try it again on a later update, went back to Juice defender and so far working reasonably ok

This isn't the battery guru app that is telling you, its your phone. However its easily turned off in settings>wifi>menu>advanced> then untick network notification
