Nexus 4 Battery Life Tested, Early Results Show Less Than Impressive Results

Google went on the record with The Verge last week and mentioned two reasons why LTE was left out of the Nexus 4: the first reason was building a carrier independent device couldn’t be achieved with LTE and the second reason power draw. There’s little argument that LTE does in fact use more power than HSPA+ or 3G, however LG did include LTE in the Optimus G design, which is the basis for the Nexus 4 smartphone. Our hope then is that the Nexus 4, running on HSPA+ networks around the world would exceed LTE devices in battery life tests, except that’s not what these AnandTech results show.

If you’re unfamiliar with the group of guys at AnandTech, they run arguably one of the best sites for digging deep into hardware and running benchmark tests that cover every inch of a new device. Their testing methods are pretty awesome and I’d happily say I trust their results implicitly. It’s their findings with the Nexus 4 then that disappoints us as battery life appears to be not only worse than a number of smartphones sitting at the top of the Android market, most of them are LTE devices.

On straight 3G/4G LTE battery tests, the Nexus 4 tested at 4 hours and 18 minutes, against the iPhone 5 which ranked highest with 8 hours nine minutes. The Galaxy S III clocked in at 5 hours, HTC One X (AT&T) at just under 7 hours.

The WiFi tests didn’t fare any better for the Nexus 4, though its battery life did improve to 6 hours and 27 minutes which was just a smidgen behind the Galaxy S III at 6 hours and 30 minutes. The iPhone 5 took top honors again clocking in at 10 hours and 27 minutes, with the HTC One X (AT&T) clocking in at just under 10 hours.

Needless, battery life on the Nexus 4 isn’t awful, but it doesn’t stand up as all that impressive when you break it down against other top devices in the market today. So, should battery life influence your decision to buy the Nexus 4? That’s something only you can answer, but I would think that battery life is a mild tradeoff compared to the joy of owning the latest Nexus device and the guarantee that future Android updates will arrive first.

Of course your mileage may vary with battery life and at the very least, the battery life is better than its predecessor with the Galaxy Nexus. Some alternative reviews have claimed vastly different battery life results so its possible this is caused by pre-release software, but its something to keep in mind as we get closer to launch.

  • Now; I’m mad.

  • Tim Moore

    How is it compared to the Galaxy Nexus would be my question. Since that’s what I have now. Surprises me though you’d think it would be pretty decent.

    • Apparently you didn’t read the whole article :)

      • Mitt

        Not only that, the idiot can’t read a bar chart. You don’t even need to read the article to answer his query.

        But to answer your question Timmy, the Galaxy Nexus has excellent results – best in class. Apparently this study ranks the Galaxy Nexus a 9, better than even an iPhone 5. As a reference, the Nexus 4 scored a 4.18 stars.

        • Jean

          You are calling him an idiot when YOU cant read a chart? Mitty, why are you so shitty?

  • Noor Mahmoud

    Well, it looks to be better than the predecessor atleast…

  • Yet, The Verge and Android Central says it gets great battery life. Pre-release software issues perhaps?

  • czaplin

    How does it compare to Galaxy Note II 3100mAh removable battery and SD card slot? The only benefit is a pure Android.

    • atari37

      I don’t think it will be as good as the Galaxy Note II. 3100mAh vs. 2100mAh.

  • atari37

    These benchmarks don’t always tell the full story. This is a direct quote from The Verge. Every other review except Engadget’s review thinks the battery life is great.

    “Battery life was also top notch. I’m used to getting just about a day of use on my Galaxy Nexus (that’s taking it off of the charger around 8AM or 9AM, and putting it back on around 2AM). Some days it doesn’t quite make it that long, depending on my workload. The Nexus 4 fared much better. At the time of this writing, I’ve had it off of its charger for 10 hours and 30 minutes and it’s still got 45 percent battery life. Yesterday before I plugged it in, I’d had it off the charger for 16 hours, with 18 percent of its juice left. To say it’s holding up for full work days would be an understatement; even with heavy use, this battery more than pulls its weight.”

    • gg555 gg555

      I think comparing The Verge’s subjective impressions of the battery life to AnandTech’s actual measurement of battery life in a rundown test that they perform the same way on every phone makes little sense.

      What’s more, it is absolutely not true that, as you say, that: “Every other review except Engadget’s review thinks the battery life is great.”

      I have read every review of the Nexus 4 that I can find. In the reviews where they performed an actual rundown test, AnandTech, TechCrunch, CNET, and Engadget, they all (every single one) found the battery life on the Nexus 4 to be strikingly poor. Engadget (in their video review) called it “pathetic.”

      In other reviews, where they evaluate the battery subjectively by noticing the phone’s performance over the course of the day, everyone (except The Verge) also said it was bad. This includes CNET UK, Gizmodo, and Wired. Wired was the least negative, simply saying the battery is good, but not exceptional, while also pointing out that it’s not as good as in the original HTC One X (a phone with a smaller battery and a less efficient processor).

      So that leaves only The Verge having anything positive to say about the battery life on the Nexus 4. I would take this outlier subjective opinion (not based on any actual objective test) with a big grain of salt.

      I think it is clear that there is something wrong with the battery life on the Nexus 4. It makes no sense that it should perform so much worse than the Optimus G, which is basically the same phone, with the same processor, screen, and battery. Whether or not this is a software problem that will be corrected in the final shipping consumer units, time will tell. But people who plan to buy this phone, without any further knowledge, should be prepared for an underperforming battery.

  • rfgenerator

    …and this is why I’m extremely reluctant to purchase any phone that does not have a user replaceable batter.

    • GoogleGuy

      You can replace it.Only need to remove 2 screws

    • zacamandapio

      That was the problem the Yankees had.

    • Dakota

      Other thing I wonder is whenever I’ve had issue with gnex or other android, they tell me to take battery out & won’t be able to do that eithr

  • Devlncrnt

    And its not like we have the option of replacing the battery with a higher density after-market solution.


    Everything I have read says that the device they were testing was a pre-production model and did not have the final software build. I can only hope this is the reason for the disparity.

    • frigadroid

      Software seems like a logical reason to blame for poor battery life, but could we be overlooking the obvious that LG has likely put the cheapest battery they could find in there?

    • gg555

      That definitely could be the case. But I’ve been burned in the past (especially by Google) waiting for a software update to fix some hardware related problem.

      So I would not buy this phone assuming the problem will be fixed. If you’re concerned, I’d wait until after the phone comes out and see if it’s fixed.

  • Rudy Belova

    Too soon to tell. With brand new phones and the shipped rom, it’s not perfect. My amaze and one s was the same way. With a few updates, my amaze was much much better. Give it time. Nothing a software update (or 3rd party rom) couldn’t help with.

  • Michael Tran

    I’m disappointed although this is not the final product BUT it’s weird that the optimus G gets better battery life on LTE with basically the same specs. Is there something wrong with the radio used in the N4? The verge review doesn’t really give us a good idea of how the phone was used during those hours. I can make my Galaxy Nexus LTE last that long if I barely use it but no matter what if I’m on LTE all the time I’ll only get about 1 hour of screen time max. I was going to wait until the final product review anyway but this is making me want the N4 less and less. Still a great phone for the price though but battery life was one of my biggest worries since i’m coming from the VZW “tethered” GN :P

    • Dan

      Lte gives better battery life because its a faster connection. That means the faster a web page can load, the quicker the radio baseband can return to its low power idle state. Software efficiency also plays a role.

      • Michael Tran

        Tell that to my galaxy nexus LTE radio that sucks up battery juice like a islander castaway in an ozarka factory. =P.

        • Logan

          I’m pretty sure that had 2 baseband radios which is why it sucked in battery life. One for CDMA and another for LTE both draining battery. All modern phones now have Qualcomm chips that support multiple technologies in one chip for power efficiency. It’s a matter of first gen lte hardware vs second gen hardware.

  • John

    It’s still pre-release software. There’s always big differences in battery life with final software, which will be available in a major OTA on Nov.13. The review units these guys have don’t even have lock screen widgets enabled yet so don’t make too many early judgements.

  • Funny, I’ve been really happy with the battery life on my Galaxy Nexus. It’s the first Android device where I don’t feel like I need to constantly manage what features are turned on (wifi, bluetooth etc.) to get a decent day’s worth of usage out of it.

    I consider myself a rather typical user, with constant usage throughout the day; mostly stuff like checking email & browsing web with the occasional YouTube video or whatnot. I almost always have HSPA+ (what T-Mobile calls 4G) coverage.

    • Mirad77

      Same here and I do even more but still get a good long 10-12 hours before my battery goes red.

  • sean

    I’ve got my heart set on the Nexus 4. Crappy battery would be a deal breaker. I have no interest in having my phone on a charger all day. iPhone 5 has much lower mah but way better performance??? Come on Google … you’ve got to help me out on this one.

    • Snoopyalien24

      Just get juice defender! Sweet app. Makes my HTC G2 last all day and it has a (?) 1600 mA battery vs the 2100 of the GS3 and the N4

  • JustinCrouch

    you guys say that the Galaxy Nexus battery life was bad, on my Google Play Nexus I could achieve up to 12-15 hours with moderate use. I get less on my Galaxy Note 2, only because im still using the heck out of it, getting used to it.

  • Wow. The iPhone 5 is at the top of the list, lol. Look at where the S3 is, damn!!!

    • Andrew Baxendale

      That is why I call this test fake — no Razr Maxx, and my GSIII battery never drops below 70% at the end of the day after full brightness, email, texts, and calls. Awesome phone.

      • lol thats a bit exaggerated.

        • exeot

          I can’t make it through a day myself with some reading and YouTube. Cannot understand how people can say they make it a day with 70% left. I don’t even have email updates on.

      • fixxmyhead

        yea right buddy. i dont believe that for a second. seriously stop lying. screenshot or it didnt happen

        • Andrew Baxendale

          I have my email updates off, I manually check. And I would love to post a screenshot, but how am I going to prove how many times I sent an email, text, and made a phone call in one picture?

  • yoyo

    Paid advertising for apple for sure, where’s the RAZR Maxx HD results?

    • HalfwayCrook

      mt thoughts exactly; no RaZR maxx results = fake and gay tests, especially when its a test for battery life

      • bleeew

        Shut up about copying overused jokes.

    • HalfwayCrook

      my thoughts exactly; no RaZR maxx results = fake and ghey tests, especially when its a test for battery life

    • Mirad77

      Exactly. That is why I call this a BS review.

    • Bud

      its att bench mark test. not verizon.

  • jf

    FAKE!. I don’t care what everybody says I am buying it for sure.

    • AndroidProfit

      So it’s fake because you like the phone? That is some stellar critical thinking skills you have there.

  • JB

    Let’s get to the real issue here, David. Are YOU going to get your hands on one and review it. As the unofficial spokesperson for all things T-Mobile, your opinion holds a little more weight than others in my eyes.. :-)

  • 21stNow

    I’m not buying the results on the bottom chart. What is the iPhone 5 (9th from top) that got 4.55 hours of web browsing? Is that an international version that doesn’t have LTE, or is it a US version that has the LTE radio turned off?

  • h_f_m

    It’s better than the Galaxy Nexus, that’s all I care about as that’s where I’m coming from. Granted I bought the official samsung 2000mAh extended battery and door for mine to replace the existing 1750mAh.. so i suppose it’ll be about the same. I have zero trouble getting through a day of use.

  • Jeff Martinez

    hardware/software is NOT finalized wait till the phone is available to purchase before making any final assumptions

  • archerian

    If its better than the Galaxy Nexus, I’m sold, plus its pre-release software. I wonder how much time users spend in “Web Browsing”. I’m a relatively light user I guess, most of my use is for Phone, Email, Google Maps and Search. I only use the browser if I click a link on search, and don’t go many pages further.

  • Ahmed

    6.27 is NOT 6 hours and 27 minutes. It means it gets 6.27 hours which translates to 6 hours and 16 minutes. Otherwise, the HTC One X would have gotten 9 hours and 93 minutes, which doesn’t make any sense (pun intended).

  • Dakota

    Gnex not so great either. I only used GPS for couple short trips & few emails/websites and from 10-by 130p, it was dead. Battery sucks if u use it. Not sure if worth getting the 4 until I hear from users. Wanted to sell gnex & other phone to buy 4 …because gnex camera sucks & the low volume drives me crazy and ruins so many experiences. … & more

  • Dakota

    I thought wifi used more battery..not less

    • 21stNow

      If you are around a strong Wi-Fi signal, the phone may use less battery power to maintain any connections needed for background data tasks. I notice less battery drain when I leave Wi-Fi on than when I turn it off. I’m usually around medium-to-strong Wi-Fi signals throughout the day.

    • Thats the usual scenario

  • LEON

    when is tmobile going to have a iphone??? They really need it!!

    • They have been fairing pretty well without it, YOU need it is what you meant to say

      • AndroidProfit

        Did the iPhone hurt you?

        • No but it appears my opinion hurt you.

        • AndroidProfit

          Not really but I have a box of tissue with cute kittens on it you can borrow.

        • You have a box of tissues.. with as you describe “cute kittens”, do I really need to go any further with this? This conversation is now over. Anything you say now is just trying to save face. Lets not embarrass you further.

      • Yeah, I’d say they definitely have NOT been fairing well without it. If customer loss quarter after quarter with partial attribution to the lack of the iPhone straight from the heads of the company, I’d say they really do need it if for no other reason than to stave off customer losses.

        • I still find that ridiculous to even think a significant amount of people are switching carriers for 1 phone rather than for other obvious reasons, Coverage, Maybe price based on what some people get, Maybe upgrades are getting too expensive, Maybe customer service just outright sucks now, A lot of factors into what is hurting T-mo financially. The iPhone would be good to have but to say its significance is that large to affect t-mobile is absurd.

        • I didn’t say it, Philip Humm did.

        • I never said you did but in the midst of all things don’t you think that maybe just maybe he overplayed the significance of the iPhone to downplay the real hard hitting issues at hand? I.E. Coverage, Service…. etc I’m not saying the iPhone is n’t reason t-mo is losing customers I’m simply saying the significance is being way over played, the iPhone is not gonna save t-mo’s face.

        • Oh, in that regard we agree, I don’t the iPhone will save T-Mobile in any way, I do think it will help stop customer bleeding though.

        • Guest911

          Oh jams – quit talking about stuff you have no clue about. Stick to …. Well whatever crap you do daily.

        • Shoo shoo leave now.

        • Mirad77

          They could be better maybe as we don’t know for sure. Given Sprint has the iphone and T-Mobile is making profit quarter after quarter while Sprint is not seems to tell something outside of speculation. When people leave at the end of their contract then go to Simple Mobile, T-Mobile still make money off of them you should remember.

      • James

        Doing well? Lmao. So losing over 500k customers every quarter is considered “pretty well” now?

        • Thats not iPhone’s fault…. if thats true…(don’t see any proof so unless its provided i don’t believe your word)

    • Motoki_Mo

      Why does every news post need to turn to this subject? I think it’s a fair question to ask and should be open for discussion but not on every single unrelated news article. If we are talking about battery life can we stick to battery life please?

  • squiggleslash

    Beyond atrocious. And the battery isn’t even replaceable. At least I was able to get a “long life” (sometimes lasts a WHOLE DAY! Woo!) for my Galaxy Nexus.

    Google should be ashamed.

    • Michael Tran

      But according to the chart the N4 gets battery life than the galaxy nexus so you should be fine in that aspect.

      • squiggleslash

        No, I think you (and the predictable “Anyone who says anything vaguely bad about anything” vote downers) have missed the point.

        First, being better than a stock GN is nothing to write home about. The fact is both the N4 and the GN cannot hold their charge for a day. A stock GN will barely last 12 hours before crapping out with *moderate* usage. The N4, we’re being told, will last *slightly* longer than that. That’s awful.

        Repeat: that’s completely awful. There is no justification for releasing a phone with that bad a battery. Adding 1mm to the thickness to double or triple the energy storage density is not going to kill the look of the phone, and yet that appears to be the only reason for these unbelievably bad battery lives.

        Second: the GN let’s you replace the battery. So at least, with the GN, you have two options:

        – You can buy a long life battery. Note now it has a better live than the N4.
        – You can carry around a spare to swap in in the event your battery dies. One Google exec is quoted as saying that’s exactly what he does (and apparently doesn’t see the irony.)

        That’s _not an option_ with the N4, where the battery cannot be replaced.

        This is an appalling phone, and Google should be ashamed to have released it.

  • AndroidProfit


    I get the sense your blog is a big view in the institutions that house those with paranoid schizophrenia.

  • striker1213

    The galaxy s3 gets me through every day just fine, I thought’d I go out and get the extra battery and dock but it doesn’t really appear I need it, as i don’t surf web on my phone for extended periods at a time when I have a tablet or computer around. And the Nexus 4 I’ve heard had good battery from others, so I wouldn’t rely on these benchmarks as they don’t tell the whole story.

  • Kindroid

    Where is the Razr Maxx and Razr Maxx HD?

  • Mike

    I am trying to decide between note 2 or nexus 4 does anybody know how is baterry in note2

    • 21stNow

      The battery is better than most. Even heavy users are reporting getting more than one day of use out of it. I left it idle for around 24 hours and it was down to 67% from a full charge the previous day.

    • HalfwayCrook

      NEXUS 4!

    • jian9007

      The Note 2 battery lasts longer, but that is because it has a 3100mAh compared to 2100mAh in Nexus 4. So if it’s battery life is the main thing you want, the much bigger one in the Note 2 is the winner. However, if like me Touchwiz makes you want strangle kittens, then Nexus 4 would be preferable. Either phone will get you decent real world battery life. I have a 10000mAh external battery pack so I don’t let battery life in a phone affect my purchase decision.

      • fixxmyhead

        touchwiz is awesome and i really wanted the note 2 but im gonna get the nexus 4 cuz the price is so damn good compared to the note2 (i buy off contract) the storage and battery on the nexus is not an issue for me

  • s10shane

    i was hoping to see the note 2 in those benchmarks.. why was it left out?

  • Rabid Rotty

    I’m a heavy on the web and with my gnex I can get between 7 to 9 hours before I need to charge on 3g. That includes about 30 or 40 texts a day and a handful of calls. I’m not sure if the 4 can do the same. I’m also thinking of swapping my stock battery with mugens 2000. If only the RAZR HD Maxx was the Nexus. Than no prob. I might get the 4 as part of my Nexus collection and give it a test drive. But right now I’ll stick with my gnex as my daily driver.

  • Bob Omb

    The review phones are running pre-release software, the only thing this article accomplishes is throwing fud on the phone. The review phones they’ve been using don’t even have lock-screen widgets enabled yet.

    • AndroidProfit

      I am sure those lock screen widgets will extend battery life.

  • Rob Daman

    Wish it was Samsung made or HTC. After owning the pos G2X I’m reluctant to buy.

    • itmustbejj

      Correct me if I’m wrong, but wasn’t the G2X LG’s first android phone? I’m not trying to defend the phone, it had QA issues and updates were a flop. But it took Samsung a little while to hit their stride with Android. The behold II was god awful, and the first Galaxy line left a LOT of people really pissed off and swearing to never buy another Samsung again.

      I would be more likely to compare the G2X as like Samsung’s Behold II. Plus Google wouldn’t let them lay and egg on this one.

  • I’m not surprised the Nexus 4 is doing bad battery wise, Google put a small dang battery in that thing and closed it off for god knows what stupid reason…

    • HalfwayCrook

      Its bigger than the galacy nexus and equal to the galaxy s 3, so stfu

    • itmustbejj

      You should never let facts get in the way of a good argument.

  • Mirad77

    I would totally disagree with David and the guys that did this test. There is nothing standard when it comes to so many things, phones being one of them. I have an iphone 4s and the galaxy nexus and speaking as someone that use them both with more Gnex. Am always on Tmonews, Engadget, Androidcentral and also run a small yahoogroup and all these from my phone daily. Not to mention emails, facebook and all but never got anything close to what they say about the Gnex. If I don’t know anything I do know that individual use of these phones matters as much as newtwork type, i.e 3G/4G/LTE. 3.35 hours of Gnex use? That’s some BS use of Gnex.

  • TBN27

    Whatever. Still getting it. Battery technology. on all phones are far better than 2 years ago anyway

  • Tech love

    Lol what a Lie result. I owne the iPhone 5 and the gs3, my wife have the tmobile note2. I tested the i5 and gs3 with daily use, the iphone5 last me about 8 to 9h and the gs3 10 to 11h use. Being tested for a few weeks now. With the note 2 is another thing, all i have to said is that thing is the beast. People have to really use those to really tell.

  • Gavin Smith

    After reviewing anandtech results for my Sensation 4G battery life, this phone would be an upgrade in that department as in every other, so I’m still onboard.

  • Well, take this like you take everything else. Just don’t take it personal if you device is not where this list says it is. I have an iPhone 5, and S3, and GNote II. The iPhone 5 is at the bottom of the list for me. My GNote II is at the top of the list, and second is my S3. It depends on how you use your device, and how much. What you have running, and several other things. I use my GNote II for my blog, and my iPhone 5. But my iPhone 5 is almost dead half way through the day, and my Galaxy Note II is still kickin’. So I wouldn’t worry about this list too much, it’s just a general study from people who probably don’t even keep the devices. Oh well..

    • Gavin Smith

      Wow. What’s your per annum budget for phones?

      • I have a tech junkie phone and tablet fund, lol.

  • Brian

    Lol this is a pre-release device and not even final.. what a joke. & where are the Note2 and Razr Maxx results?? Discard this post its making Android look bad.

  • AndroidProfit

    David IS OBVIOUSLY being paid off by Apple,,, sheesh

    • I didn’t disclose that they paid my mortgage last month? Silly me.

    • Duck Dodgers


  • jian9007

    It’s not final build software, and the phone batteries aren’t used for a few weeks of normal use (including charging/discharging) like an average person uses it. The real results will be seen once the final model is on sale and in the hands of actual users. Also, even in these reviewers tests, it is similar to GS3, which has almost the same size 720p screen (4.8″ vs 4.7″) and the same size 2100mAh battery. The iPhone 5 has a much smaller screen and less pixels to push so it will perform better in the run down tests.

    • onevivip

      Although the iPhone has a smaller screen, it also has a smaller battery. So it pretty much evens out.

  • Alex Rubio

    Dam, I have a really hard time believing after all the apple bias in that site!

  • jaylanPHNX

    Having the same hardware minus LTE and getting less battery life is proof positive that it’s a software issue, and therefore fixable.

  • iFixThings

    this is the most BS article ever, you guys didn’t notice there was the razr maxx AND the Galaxy Note II has been left out? The iphone on the graph would look like only half the battery life of those two. I’ve heard reviews of the note II getting 10 hours of video playback, vs what… 8 hours of web surfing on the iphone?

  • macho man

    I cant believe David runs a Tmobile site and loves to throw Android under the bus. Why hasnt this post been update to show this was a pre-production model. Why leave this article as is.

    • JB

      It says it’s a pre-release software on the last paragraph… Not that David needs anyone to defend him, but give him a break. He’s just reporting news that sounds interesting and relevant to us. It’s not some mass conspiracy to praise the iPhone and slam everything Android… It’s not like he personally put these charts together…

      • Seriously, I don’t get it, I write something bad about Android and all of a sudden I’m some Apple toting monster. I want to see the same people who thank me when I do my Note II review and praise the device…but wait, it’s Android, therefore I must hate it!

        • squiggleslash


          Ignore them. Honestly, you run a great site. There’s a whole tribal thing going on with the Android vs iOS thing, and it’s silly and ridiculous and anyone who just wants to see good phones tends to get this kind of thing, but the rest of us are glad for what you do.

          Keep up the good work, it’s appreciated,


    • It was updated:

      Of course your mileage may vary with battery life and at the very least, the battery life is better than its predecessor with the Galaxy Nexus. Some alternative reviews have claimed vastly different battery life results so its possible this is caused by pre-release software, but its something to keep in mind as we get closer to launch.

      Also, this isn’t an Android site, there’s nothing about running a T-Mobile that requires every article involves me writing nice things about Android at every opportunity. I write nice things about Android, and bad things about Android. I do the very same thing with the iPhone and with Windows Phone, shocking right?

      Try to recognize that I was simply reporting on something hundreds of people have been asking me about. So, I reported on it but because you didn’t like the results, I’m at fault, biased and should leave Android alone? We could pretty much substitute Android for “Britney” here and we’d end up with this:

    Probably some Company influenced this skewed battery test result. I can see the hand of a company who see the the N4 as a threat given its killer specs and sweet sweet price of $ 299/349.

    i think this info is flawed and contradictory to other statements that have been made over the battery life. still getting the phone…wish i could pre-order it NOW

  • Rodger

    I’m calling complete bullshit on this article, 90% of the reviews I have read have said the battery life is amazing, also just look at the benchmarks the LTE versions of the phones last longer than the 3g? Yeah complete and utter bullshit

  • Rinaldo

    Why haven’t you shown benchmarks for the Samsung Galaxy note 2? It’s eclipses every phone on that list. It really is laughable how much Apple influences everything written on the internet these days.

    haha i guess i picked i5 over N4 was a good choice after i got butt raped by my gnexus.
