    That's true, you need to stay by a charger, but there is an extended battery that's only slighter larger that will give you about an extra hour or two of juice.

    Or carry a spare.

    i have the extended battery.

    i still have trouble getting through an entire day on a single charge.

    and who the hell carries around spare batteries? that's such an annoyance.

    ^true i never carry a spare. I also have the extended and i get thru the day unless I've been doing some very heavy browsing. Anyhow, I'm at school during the day, so I keep a USB with me and plug in to my computer if I need to.

    Iphone's battery is slightly better than gnex, tho, that's true.

    Razr maxx is supposed to have the best battery available currently.

    the iPhone's battery is VASTLY superior to the nexus'.

    granted, they're totally different phones with different size factors, but I could easily get through 1-2 days on my iPhone with moderate usage and full screen brightness.

    keeping 4g on and full brightness on my nexus all day would literally kill my battery in 4-5 hours.

    conclusions: i'm just a spoiled techno-brat who expects the galaxy nexus to be able to last throughout the day and more with 4g on and full brightness.

    well you HAVE to use wifi on any 4g device when you can, or toggle off the 4g and use 3g if battery life is a priority and you aren't going to be near a charger all day.

    Personally, i just use wifi when im at home and at school, 4g whenever i'm not (live in NY so it's a good 4g signal pretty much everywhere).

    Also keep my brightness on auto - saves alot more battery than you might think.

    And the 4.65 inch screen is a huge drain, for sure. Battery life is almost completely dependent on screen-on time.

    And I haven't owned it, but I've heard the Iphone 4s battery life leaves alot to be desired.

    What's the obsession with full brightness?

    yup.. i know that all 4g phones available today have serious battery limitations (sans the razr maxi).

    i also keep it on auto brightness to save my battery. as for the iPhone 4s, i've only owned the iPhone 3g and iPhone 4 -- both had stellar battery life (compared to my nexus, at least). always had full brightness on them.


    the screen just looks better.

    I currently own a Samsung Galaxy Nexus and that phone is simply amazing. Really fast, looks great. Only bad this about it is the size, it's quite big

    If I wasn't such a Mac fanboi I'd get the Samsung. I'm not sure why but I've always liked their phones.

    I like Samsung phones as well, but not too keen on Touchwiz though. I've got a Galaxy S, but I rooted it and changed the software to CyanogenMod.

    Agreed. Touchwiz is ugly and clunky. Cyanogen is nice and its lean. My nexus is rooted running various roms, waiting for cm9 to be complete.

    Do you write the instruction manuals for cheap Chinese counterfeit iPhones?
