    Grey means its on
    Green means its active

    Loving the update, runs quite a bit smoother, no battery difference as far as I can tell.
    Thanks, was wondering this myself

    I go canoeing in Southern Missouri during the summers where the only cellular reception is Verizon, and only in very limited locations. I am with T-Mobile and my past phones completely deplete a full battery in just a couple hours if they are scanning for a tower(signal) constantly. So that could be plausible. However my Nexus One with very limited use will hold a charge for about 20 hours provided I turn wifi on & off manually. Using internet, wifi, texting and talking and it shortens to 10 hours as a minimum for my mobile habits.

    I don't understand me with limited use and WIFI & 3G turned off most of the time.My phone last more then 3 days and on that i use it to talk and text not like crazy but i still use it everyday.I don't put my display to full brightness.

    My Nexus One lasts about a day with wifi and 3g on. I was in the hills in Wales recently and turned off data, set 2g only and switched off wifi. It lasted 3 days with just calls and texts. It seems like the persistent data connection is the killer for battery, which is the whole point of these phones obviously, but when you can't charge your phone easily it's a good way to make it last while still being able to receive calls and texts.

    agree with the 2g bit mate,but what i dont like is having to put it on 2g to save battery i'd be as well with a 20 phone from tesco,these companys who make smart phones have the capacity to put a decent battery in them,just my thought on it
    my other phone's a nexus too

    Why would people need to have the WIFI OR 3G ON 24/7?

    I read in the google forum about the battery use after GB update. There is a strong opinion (my point of view from reading) that there is a bug in the GB update that Wi-Fi is not turning off like it should. I think I confirmed that yesterday by looking at my graph in the Battery Use section. I had my Wi-Fi set to turn off when the screen does and the blue bar for Screen Use and Wi-Fi are not the same. Wi-Fi had several long blue sections where my Screen didn't. Today I have manually turned off the Wi-Fi to see how my battery lasts.

    Update: Turning off the Wi-Fi didn't really seem to help battery life.

    GB

    It seems on my N1 the battery drains much faster. Before, I could go about 2 days before I had to recharge but, with the GB update, I have to recharge every night. I don't really like the "new" look. Smaller icons in green on a dark background. Hard to see. Also, during a call the N1 is not as stable, could be network but, never had a prob before. The phone is behaving a little funkier as well. I may have to go to the N2

    It seems like SwiftKey is not as stable under GB. Had to force close it more then once since the update, and never had any problems with it before. It is superior, IMO, to even the new GB keyboard so I hope they release a patch soon.

    Having similar problems with swype. Seems to lose it's settings every once in a while, and I have to long press a text field and reset it as the input method...
