Most of my music (well, podcast) listening is done on headphones - I guess that would use a little less power than the speakers.

The only difference I can see is that I'm using the stock kernel.
Any suggestions?

Do you own the Nexus 4 or is this on another device? The battery stats screen doesn't show what's currently using the battery, but it's a historical record of what has taken up the battery since the last charge.

If you've been playing games for any length of time, they are going to be big hitters.

WiFi uses less power than 2G. Live wallpapers don't use hardly any power.

Don't use it.

My phone can last all day if I don't use it a whole lot, or I can kill a battery in a few hours if I'm playing games on it. Other than a Droid Razr Maxx I don't think there is a smart phone that can last more than a day with a decent amount of usage.
Crashdamage and Riotpump like this.

I just got one yesterday and I am very pleased with it, so far. I was a little disappointed that it doesn't have a spot for an SD card, but the 16 gigs (more like 12) more than makes up for it. The lack of app space that I had with my previous phone (HTC Evo V 4G from Virgin Mobile) is definitely not an issue with this device.
