So all I seem to hear was about how bad the battery life was on the nexus 4. Now I know 4.2.2 did make the battery life better, but after having the nexus 4 for a little over a week. I can say I don't find it to be a big issue. Not once have I run out of battery. I consider myself a medium to heavy user and I have about 15%-20% left when I go to bed. In a normal day I send about 75-100 text, check my email, write on MacRumors and this forum using Tapa talk app ( I check it about 30 minutes or so if I am not busy), check gizmodo and Engadget about 10 times a day, and surf the web. I find the battery life not too bad.
