LG Optimus G Battery Life
I picked up my Optimus G on Thursday and while the hardware is undeniably beautiful, the battery life has been absolutely terrible.
I've had numerous Android devices over the last several years but this is the first time I've had one that couldn't make it more than about 12 hours on a single charge. I've even gone so far as to do a factory reset and then NOT install any additional software to ensure that the problem isn't the result of a rogue application.
Ordinarily, the screen is the biggest consumer of battery life on an Android device but when I look at the Battery Use Details screen on the Optimus G, it shows that "Android OS" is responsible for 80% of the battery drain on my device. This isn't normal for Android. Several other people have reported similar issues in various internet forums as well.
Have any of you seen this on your new device?
