I feel kind of silly giving a pro my tips but I feel your pain. Here's what I do.
1. I turn off the three location services until I need to use it.
2. My wifi at home is weak. So when I go to sleep, I turn off wifi and I turn off data. I only loose 2 or 3% overnight in 8 hours and I can still get messages and phone calls. I never turn on data unless I need it. When I am away from wifi and don't need data, they are both off.
3. Freeze google talk, latitude and facebook. I use my browser for FB and twitter.
4. Turn off the blinking notification light and of course brightness low not on auto.
5. Turn off autosync.
6. Turn off backup google. I sync once in awhile to get my pix to the cloud.
I use the power toggles app to put the toggles widget under my notification pull down, so I can easily turn this stuff on and off quickly.
Right now, I'm on RUjellin with stock kernel. I love stock jellybean. It's so fast and smooth. I use cpu spy right after I flash a new rom to make sure I have deep sleep, then freeze it and better battery stats once my battery seems good. I don't think you have deep sleep.
I use a beautiful widgets weather/clock widget and have two weather apps but both are set to manually update.
I tried all three radios and they did not hurt my battery life at all and did improve reception.
These things worked for me. I'm getting 36 hours with about 2.5 hours screen time (2100 extended batt). I could get more screen time but I talk on the phone about an hour per day and listen to podcasts or music for 2 or 3 hours, surf the internet 2 or 3 hours and send a bunch of texts.
Hope you get this figured out.
Edit - I just read this post on xda about how much battery UBER gets on stock without messing with any thing. I think he has a super phone. I feel like I really have to baby mine. http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?p=31690691

I'm getting deep sleep per CPU spy and better battery stats. I shouldn't have to disable data to avoid putrid battery. Still testing.....

Like my super phone? Complete, official stock Jelly Bean. Only change is the images for the soft keys. I don't use any mods, battery saving apps, task killers, etc. I don't disable data or GPS, and tend to forget WiFi on when I'm out or at work even though it's not being used.

Nice. Looks like you get decent 3g and signal though. I live out in the sticks and I'm sure you know that having poor signal is a huge battery drain, and I'm lucky to consistently get one bar. I tend to be on wifi when I can because of this reason.

I ended up with a little over 3 hrs. screen on time this cycle with 2 days 8 hrs. total time:



Here's another charge cycle:



Depending on my usage and what I'm doing I can achieve 5+ hrs. of screen on time, I'm sure you have/can as well.

Terrible signal in San Diego everywhere too. I just leave 3g/data off just don't need it to get calls and texts. Really helps my battery. It looks like Mizzo has deep sleep issues with 7% battery drain in an hour JUST SITTING THERE.
Try a stock ROM?

Yeah, I still that the drain he's experiencing is abnormal....There's always the possibility it's his battery, not sure though because I know he at one time was testing the stock battery as well as the extended one. This truly is a mystery .

Yeah I've tested stock battery and had the same issues. Wonder if hardware is just bad or something? Not sure if doing a return would be a good idea or not.

Yeah so far. I got better battery life yesterday sort of. I actually wrote it down. At 73% battery life (coming from a full charge) I had 32 minutes of screen time and 46 minutes of total awake time per betterbatterystats. If you take that out over a full charge, it equates to 1 hour and 58 minutes of screen time and 2 hrs and 50 minutes of awake time. This is with the Samsung OEM 2100 mah extended battery and a fully settled kernel (CM10 and Trinity). Of all the readings I've done, here is what I have so far. All others are on CodenameAndroid:

These were all taken at different battery level intervals, but all projected out over a 100% charge

Extended Battery
1 hr 42 min display - 6 hrs 41 min of awake time
1 hr 58 min display - 2 hrs 50 min of awake time
1 hr 40 min display - 3 hrs 10 min of awake time

Stock Battery
1 hr 10 min display - 2 hrs 25 min of awake time
1 hr 0 min display - 6 hours 0 min of awake time
1 hr 10 min display - 6 hrs 9 min of awake time

I don't remember exactly, but the high awake times were probably lots of music listening with data disabled. Either way, my display times stink IMHO. My average across all different roms/kernels for my OG Evo was

2 hrs 55 minutes of screen time - 6 hrs 5 minutes of awake time. That's across 39 readings with data NEVER being disabled.

Needless to say, I am a battery stat tracking junkie and something doesn't make sense here to me.

Maybe you should see what Zeinzu is potentially doing differently....? He seems to be achieving stellar battery w/ his current setup.

May be karma because he has LTE on the couch.
I do know if I leave WiFi on overnight I loose about 8-15% because the signal is crummy in the back of the house and 3g is also crummy in the neighborhood. So I have to turn off WiFi and data when I go to sleep. I don't remember better battery stats indicating anything was amiss when I left WiFi on overnite. Not sure if weak WiFi prevents deep sleep. I do know my og Evo did not have these battery issues with WiFi.

I leave wifi on all the time and overnight I'll lose an average of 4% over an 8 hr. period (sometimes 7 hrs. depending on when I get to bed).

On another note, I called Sprint earlier today about my horrible reception at home and where I live in general and they're shipping me a free Airave as consolation. I'm pretty stoked about getting it completely free! They also pulled up a map of my address to confirm I get lousy signal and they educated me a bit. I learned that in many typical coverage areas, the majority have an average of 5 towers w/in a 10 mile radius....I only have 1 *near* me and it's further than 3 miles from my residence! If there's truth to what she was saying, no wonder my signal is as terrible as it is!

Slyd, you may want to give Sprint a call and express your frustration with what kind of signal you're experiencing while you're in your home. Maybe they'll send an Airave your way as well.

This makes me feel better lol. I'll stop complaining now. This phone is still pretty badass and turning data off helps drastically.

Slyd, you may want to give Sprint a call and express your frustration with what kind of signal you're experiencing while you're in your home. Maybe they'll send an Airave your way as well.
We have an airrave but have an old house with chicken wire in the walls. In the back of the house the airrave signal can't get thru the walls. One of these days I'll try moving it and the router. Just lazy and have other priorities (like messing with my phone). We only have three tower coverage at home.
I also got an airrave for my mom's house because she is ill and I travel there all the time. At her house there is absolutely zero signal without the airrave. Sprint gave us both for free. My daughter lives in town near us and her signal sucks. She has one spot in her house where the call won't disconnect. So I asked Sprint for a 3rd airrave. They said no :-) You'd think I lived in the sticks , not San Diego.

I guess with Sprints reception, we all live in the sticks lol! On another note, can you give me some feedback on Airave? Does it help?

It makes a hughe difference. At my mom's house I went from zero bars to 5 when sitting in the same room as the airrave. Call quality is excellent. Before I put it in up there (San Fransisco), I could not make a call or text period. It's perfect now. I go up to see her about once a month and never have to reset it. It just works. In the back of her house there's 3 bars, so as you move away from the airrave signal strength decreases.

It also does data too right? If so, how does it do there?

If it makes you guys feel any better, many of us VZW folk have experienced iffy battery life on the gnex as well. Seemed like the turnaround for me was Jellybean + Lean Kernel. Not sure what options you guys have for roms and kernels.

Plenty of options. Franco, lean, trinity, ak, jame bond, nyan and I'm sure others I'm forgetting.

Placed order for extended battary for $8 with Sprint. Not sure if it is worth for little bit of bump in capacity.

You will at least have a spare/replacement battery for very little cost.

If you have sub-par reception, they will generally give you one free of charge, even no shipping. But you will need to say your service is bad enough for you to need to switch carriers. Then they transfer you to customers retentions.

Oh well I get pretty good signal in my house. I was looking for getting one for somewhere else but then I looked up what it was and found out it needed a router so it would be useless. I thought it was just a signal booster.
