Surprised Hey Nexus S 4G users, how long did your battery last?

Today was my first full day using it from a complete charge. I was mid-heavy using it today since I was all excited and using every feature possible (except camera). It went from 100% - 0% from 7am - 6pm. Just wondering how everyone else did.

15 hours of moderate use today and my battery was still at 27% when I plugged it in. Thats with a custom live wallpaper running too. My Evo, even with its 1800MAH extended battery would have needed the charger around 9 hours and dead by the 10th. Very impressed with the stock Nexus battery and I still have a 1750MAH showing up tomorrow!

8:30am to 6:30pm

About 5 calls

20 mins of hotspot

Some music streaming, browsing... pretty heavy use.

Hopefully tomorrow will be better.

I said elsewhere I'm getting about 8 hours daily. But I never shut it off for more than a few minutes. That's phone calls, streaming music, internet/forum browsing etc.

Yesterday after 12 hours I still had 50% left. I have twitter syncing every 2 hours, gmail push, words for friends, I did a little browsing, some music streaming and text messaging, usual stuff for me, but with my epic it would have been crying for the charger. so happy I made the switch.

As for aftermarket batteries, I see there is a 3200mah option out there. Is there a 2200-2500 mah battery for the Nexus S? Hopefully something that will still allow the use of the ezestand.

I've noticed that my battery lasts for the whole day (12hrs more or less) with moderate gaming approx 2hrs, no bluetooth, no gps, Sync ON, WiFi ON, some browsing, watched some youtube videos, browsed the marketplace for a solid 20mins, made a few calls, checked through the facebook app every once in a while, and other random phone operations.

I posted this on another thread but this is what i got on my 2nd day of real use off the charger.

I have noticed that it does show to be full around 96 or 97%. But after only having the phone a few days, i'm getting great battery life. After 12hr of normal to medium use my battery was down to 36%. I have a 1750mah battery on the way, and I will see how much use i can get out of it. And I will check if the charge level is different.

For me about 15hr before I hit 62%. Thats sending text and pics all day, playing a few games, some Youtube, and a little Netflix. I never turn the gps off, and only I use the 4g once in a while. I have the Seidio 1750mah battery and it holds very well.

My results are very similar. My phone lasted a full 12 hours yesterday (..which was my first full day with the phone). I am a fairly heavy texter/WordFeuder, so the performance of this phone is outstanding when compared to my previous Epic 4g.

19 hours? Are you rooted and using Juice Defender or something? Larger battery than stock?

I just got my Nexus S 4G 2 days ago. I'm coming from a HTC Hero which I've had for a year and a half (which had great battery life on CM7).
I have not changed any settings on the Nexus S yet, and my 4G is turned off. My battery life is horrible. The battery level ends up in the yellow danger zone after about 6 hours of minimal use. And when I check to see battery usage, it says that "Gallery" is taking ~65% of my battery life. wtf? I haven't even transfered any pictures to the new phone or taken a picture yet! Yesterday I force-closed it. When I went to bed last night the phone was fully charged. I wanted to see how long it would last sitting idle overnight. Woke up 10 hours later (I overslept) and battery is in yellow zone again, and "Gallery" used 62% of battery. I'm baffled. I just power cycled and I will see if the problem goes away. I will give it a couple more days of testing and if it's not fixed, the phone is going to be returned.
p.s. After power cycling I immediately checked the list of running apps and "Gallery" is running. Why is it running, I didn't turn it on?

Ok so I'm on day 4 1/2 with my new Nexus S 4G. Still having battery life problems and every time I check whats using the battery life, it says "Gallery" has used up 50-60%. And I still haven't taken a single picture or transfered a single file over from my old phone. For the past 24 hours I am trying to not use the phone at all, I'm just checking it once in a while to see how my battery is doing.
I really don't want to return the phone because I think its the most awesome phone in the world, if it would just work good.
When I turned on the phone and logged in for the first time last week, it automatically downloaded and installed all of the programs I had on my previous phone. I would like to try reseting to factory default but not install any apps and run it totally stock for a while. I can't find a setting to stop automatic app installing, can someone tell me where the setting is for this?? Thanks.

It's been 11h 17m 43s since I last charged and I am at 37%

This is with regular use, several calls, lots of internet use, no wi-fi, and 4G only when I needed it.

The Nexus S has the best battery life I've seen on an android smart phone by a large margin.

I'm curious, under Battery Use, what are your top items? Mine are:
1) Display 43% (and I keep it at the lowest brightness, solid black wallpaper, and w/ 1 min timeout)
2) Android System 10%
3) Maps 7%
4) GPS Status 5%
5) Android OS 5%
6) Cell standby 5%

I'm getting around 10h before I have to plug in. But its brand new and only been charged a couple of times.

Go into account and sync settings. Turn off sync on picasa web albums.

I'm not rooted, but I do use JD. My batter is the OEM unit. The 19hr day was a good one; I average around 14-15 hours of use without a charge.

My battery life is terrible. At full charge in the morning, it barely survives the day with low usage -- It's just idling when I am in the office, where I have a landline & full laptop.

Thinking about getting an extended battery. Any recommendations?

What does rooted mean?

Mine is horrible as well. I even rooted and am running Oxygen ROM. If I stream just a little music I get less than 4 hours. My EVO had better better battery life. I kept hearing how good the NS4G battery life was and so far not so good. I erased battery stats and it improves some. I am running identical programs as my EVO so I expected at least the same results. The I really like this phone and want it to work out. I I wish there were some cheap extended batteries on eBay but they are all for the Nexus S. and not the 4G.

There is a discussion in the Google threads about the Maps application showing up in the battery usage as a high consumer, and there was one suggestion that stuck out to me and I have tried it. I believe my battery usage has become better, something worth trying. I turned off use wirelss networks in the location settings. This phone has a pretty robust GPS receiver in it, compared to a Vibrant of course, or the Galaxy S line, so I am not too concerned about it. If I run GPS applications, it will lock on within seconds, so I am not too worried about the other option. It has given me more battery life by the end of the day at work. Hope this helps, I have only been doing this for a week myself.

If Maps is using the battery (when you not using it) it's Latitude (part of Maps) that is really running. The only way to keep Latitude from always running is to log out of it.

Default Battery Life tweaks

The Nexus S is shipped from the factory with the NFC enabled. This eats up a ton of battery. From the home menu:

Settings
Wireless & Networks
Scroll down to NFC, uncheck box (as long as you do not use this feature)
Exit.

This should help battery life if it is still enabled. Also, choose a good battery saving program. Juice Defender is OK, I prefer 2X Battery. You pay a few dollars for it, but it is a smaller program, uses less RAM and CPU which preserves battery, and is faster at enabling/disabling data connection. It's all about the tweaks in one of these programs that extends life. I have mine set at 1 hour refresh intervals. There are settings from 10 min to 2 hrs, so depending on how frequent you need things like email/facebook updates, your battery life will alter. Hope this helps!

I'm a pretty heavy user and I get 8 hours before I swap batteries. I've tried all kinds of things with no luck but I have grown to expect it due to the usage. It's much better than my Epic though.

I'm on GPA17, underclocked to 800 and 'Powersave'. I use voice pretty heavily. I'm glad I get (mostly) through an entire day...my EVO never did.

Medium call use (~2.5 hours), and a bit of YouTube at the end to pop up the Display %...

That's a pretty steep chart. I make some to a few phone calls, never a huge phone talker, not a heavy talker like you. I can make it all the way until 10PM from 8AM, so at least 14 hours and still have 40% at least left. I run a fair amount of apps as well. Running 2.3.5, not sure how and why everyone is suffering so much. I am doing a lot better on this phone than the Vibrant I had that's for sure.

Same here. I'm can get 14hrs out of my phone, and I'm a heavy texter.

This is my third day with my Crespo4g. I was coming from a MyTouch3g, which i'd routinely get 3-4 days out of a charge. Day one, I didn't keep track of battery usage, because I was upgrading to 4.04 OTA, installing CM9, etc. Yesterday, my battery life was atrocious. It was down to 30% after about 5 hours, with data turned off for most of the time. I've since turned off most syncing, disabled NFC, and had data enabled (even 4g). Its been off the charger for 7 and half hours, and is at 42%. 4G kept going in and out, because 4g signal is weak at work, and I've used GPS a bit (I've been riding my bike to work, and so had GPS on, with My Tracks logging my trip, when I road to work, then when I went to lunch).

Battery life still leaves to be desired, but I'm much happier with things.
