Galaxy Nexus - Battery Issues

I have just purchased my Samsung Galaxy Nexus - it seems to be a great phone. However, I have learned there are some concerns about battery life. I would consider myself a moderate user - 2-3 hours of Facebook, texting, web surfing, music and ebook reading a day. I have done some research and found there are extended batteries available for purchase. I would appreciate hearing how others have handled this issue. I want to know the phone will meet my needs before the 15 day window to return it is up.

Not sure if you are still checking this site, however the battery life on the Samsung Galaxy Nexus is known not to be very good. With a battery saver app installed, I can get it to last at most 1.5 days before a recharge is needed. If you have the data on in the background, or if you use your wifi for 2-3 hrs/day, it will drain the battery.


I haven't bought another battery, just downloaded a free battery saver app.


Hope that helps!
