    Thumbs up I'm done,I've had it with Nexus and the battery death...

    Battery death because it has no battery life. OMG it's killing me, I can't take it anymore. When I had my BB Bold I never concerned myself with battery life, it ran a day, sometimes two on a charge. I ran WiFi, GPS and was a a texting fool. With my Nexus I have to keep jacking around keeping stuff off to save power. Yea, the Nexus has stuff that a Blackberry will never have, but the Blackberry has something the Nexus will never have and that's decent battery life. No, I don't run widgets, stuff that accesses the Internet, or anything. Sitting on my desk not using it, 2G, no GPS, WiFi connected to my work network and I come home everyday with about 60% battery life. Screw this crap. Unless I give it a boost in the evening I can't go out with it and expect to use my phone. It'll be dead. It's 11:20PM and the thing is at 13% left. I am a cell phone wh*re. I have had 9 phones in the last 3 years. I love cell phones. It's my hobby, but this Nexus just don't cut it. I ordered a new BB Bold 9700 from AT&T for 199.00 with a contract extension and I cannot wait until it arrives. The nicest coolest phone in the world that can't make it from 05:00 to 11:00PM isn't worth jack to me. By midnight I might as well be carrying a turd in my pocket because unless I give it an evening charge that's about all it's worth. Flame on, but you all know better.......I know you do.

    If your patient, FroYo improves battery life substantially.

    ahh the battery argument again. im able to go through the whole day with bluetooth on talking an hour, the screen being on for a total of 1 hour including some web surfing settings messaging facebook etc. i also sync 2 emails every 20 minutes. i can last from 9am to 12pm and still have about 20% left. I think thats perfect for a smart phone with such a big screen. Maybe you have a faulty battery.

    That was my next suggestion..a faulty cell, and also to use battery monitor to see what's really chewing it up. If it something normal, like android system,etc. then that leads towards a bad cell. If it's screen (brightness), data (messaging checking service eats a ton!*), then we can do something about it.

    edit: *that is to say, use Handsent, and disable native messaging app's check-in service.

    It's funny because when I first got the nexus I thought wow battery life is actually pretty good. Then a few weeks later I was swapping batteries twice a day and still would run out of juice. However, this past saturday I charged my phone overnight, and it's still going 2 days later with 20% left. Main difference I did was run the task killer the whole time.

    Call Google. I actually had a faulty Nexus. I bought a Seidio extended battery and was still dying after 4 hours. I only had about 2 hours of talk time on the Seidio. I called Google, replaced my phone and I can now get about 4-5 hours of talk time out the normal battery. Its 2 am, I've been on my phone with bluetooth most of the day, browsing and downloading stuff. Plus push email from 3 email accounts. My battery level is 16%.

    Hi. If I understand the technology correctly, we are not supposed to let our batteries go down below half before recharging. It shortens their life. These phones are not phones, they are computers with a phone aspect so if you want to use them you need to charge them up whenever you can.

    I use the car dock which charges the phone whenever it's in it. When I get home I stick it on the usb. It's a different way of looking at it which takes away the stress of wondering if I'm running low. It's never low now.

    mine started off really poor, but after a few days it seemed to improve. I have facebook/email/twitter/rss synching switched on. Wifi permanently on, and gps when needed.

    Gaming does seem to kill it a bit though.

    There are all kinds of ways to fix battery life on the N1. Rooting, apps in the Market, extended batteries.

    It's so easy.... hardly worth throwing out the baby with the bathwater over.

    "ahh the battery argument again", again.....maybe it's again because it's a serious issue. To me 20% battery life is unacceptable. I am an IT guy that needs to provide emergency support 24 by 7 and to ever have a phone at 20% is a risk to my ability to provide support to my organization.

    I have rooted, upgraded to Froyo, used APNdroid, purchased JuiceDefender, removed all widgets, I purchased 2 backup batteries (OEMs from Google, sent it to HTC to check out and they said it's operating within specs. The phone and the batteries are fine. I'm not ripping the Nexus believe me, I love the the phone!! But for me I do not want to have to charge my phone or swap out batteries half way through my day. I wanna shove my phone in my pocket in the morning and go all day and not have to think about the battery. It's just me. But for anyone who expects to go all day on one charge can forget it. It's all what you want in a phone. My post last night was me venting my frustration.

    This phone is like a woman, cool to look at, nice to hold in your hand, but high maintenance.

    I'm done.
