Verizon Galaxy Nexus Shows Off Promising Battery Life

By  |  10 Comments

It would appear that we have an early battery test for the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Nexus for Verizon and the results, if accurate, paint a pretty good picture for those of you interested in this device.

As we noted yesterday when we showed you the results of a battery test between a bunch of Android phones and the iPhone 4S, battery life is one of, if not the most important aspect of a smartphone. Especially, when that smartphone is one of the most anticipated of the year like the the Galaxy Nexus.

It will soon be heading to Verizon’s 4G LTE network soon, a network that is notorious for being  a battery hog, which is why these results are extremely promising. We say promising because we won’t know for sure until we see more widespread results and can test it ourselves.

According to the owner of this Galaxy Nexus, he performed heavy web surfing with brightness on max for a grand total of 5 hours using LTE and the device had 45% battery left. That’s pretty impressive given how poorly battery life is on some of the other 4G LTE devices out there.

Why do you guys think? Impressed? Reserving judgement?

What say you?

    While this report is encouraging, its when we test it ourselves that will tell the story.  I’m looking forward to finding out.

    oh yeah, and by the way the phone is coming out on the 11th, I mean the 28th, oh no the 17th, oh sorry the 21st.
    Just wait for it to be released before listening to any of this crap!

    Can’t get mad at the company just because all sorts of bloggers are getting everyone hyped up and disappointed with guesses about the release date.  Get mad at them for taking too long and not telling you when it is coming out—get mad at them for not taking too long and rushing a problem phone to market — get mad at them for seeming to constantly be changing the date.  Hey — they want to make money and they want to make a phone that won’t embarrass them.  I don’t love those companies, but I can’t blame them because bloggers are getting everyone upset about mythical release dates.

    I bet this was on a fresh charge.. it always seems like you get the best battery life when you 1st use the phone. then weeks later you notice it doesnt hold its charge as well.
