    Just to let you guys know there's a post on Reddit that disabling google's location service and location and Google search in the GPS settings helps to fix the Android OS CPU problem.

    Potential Solution to Galaxy Nexus Battery Issue. (/hope) : Android

    I'm trying it out now, only been testing for half an hour, but I think it's working.

    Edit: Didn't seem to fix the problem.

    Vandy,
    I had the same problem. I dialed 611 with order number in hand and they provided me with the tracking number. I ordered on 12/15, shipped on 12/16, on truck for delivery today.

    Good luck!!!

    I just turned it all off. Phone is charging now. I let it die completely and when it was plugged in and charging I turned it back on and the battery widget read 45......why?

    I understand this and the same is true of any untreated infection really, but I wasn't really being serious anyhow. Would guess a root canal or extraction ends up the lesser of evils long before such things become a concern in most cases.

    I told the dentist that if it was cheaper she could take all my teeth out and I'd get fake ones. She thought that was kinda funny.

    I'll be sure to let you know if it seems to help.


    Yeah, I switched them on because they're definitely "nice to have" features, but if it's draining my battery I can definitely live without 'em

    Not sure. Maybe that's the default image it starts with? Totally a guess. Like my clock starts at 6:00 until it auto updates from the network.

    When you do google searches, and you search for Pizza, it will show places close to your current location.

    Anything location based. Web search, places search, weather if you're using "follow me" type features, maps and nav. etc....

    Although you can still turn them on when needed so not a biggie really.

    I figured I would give it it a try. I am at 39% so I will see how it is in the next hour or two.

    Did you pull the battery as suggested in the reddit post?

    Dang. Well I flashed romans aokp bld 7 this morning and am giving it a thorough workout. He has built some amazing customizations into it along with some unque power saving features. It's running very well atm. Much faster and smoother than 4.0.2 and I have not found any hiccups yet.

    Cool, I'm still running stock and was hoping that this would fix the problem. I've seen some screenshots showing 36 hours on battery and still at 40%.

    That's all I want is for this thing not to suck down 30% of my battery while I sleep.

    Just looked at this again.

    He is on WiFi with screen off for 9 hours. The same test for one hour took 3% for me so with location based anything off I would probably lose a little bit less, but this is the same test I posted before and definitely wasn't the cause.

    I PMed my dev friend over at XDA and his repsonse was:

    Pulling the battery should reset the battery % numbers.

    Yeah. There's probably a lot of money that could be made developing more comfortable and more quickly healing means of repairing teeth, if such things are even possible. Someday maybe! :)

    You really do lose 30% while sleeping? Something is seriously wrong with your phone whether software or hardware idk.
