    Hey everyone, just picked up a Galaxy nexus last night.So far I am loving it. I went to bed and left the phone with 70% battery and when I woke up I have 25% left. Wow, not good until I saw that Exchange services was using 56% of my battery and did not let my phone sleep for 9 hours it was left idle. The strange thing is that I left the polling frequency as every 15 min and not push so this is a real suprise to see this. I have since changed it to manual, but my question is are other folks on this forum having the same issue? I love the exchange integration and hope that this is a bug that will be fixed which according to verizon rep this phone is due for 3 updates starting the end of january.

    Happy New Year!

    also, disable the exchange services you dont need.

    Thanks, however I would still like to use it though. By doing what you recommended won't that prevent me from using the email client on the phone?

    not at all. just dont disable the gmail exchange. ive disabled a ton of things on my phone, from live wallpapers to exchanges and its made a huge impact on battery life.
