Anyone concerned about the battery specs?

Do you know what other phone has a 2300mAh battery, 5" display and even simular dimensions? The Xperia ZL.
We're more concerned about the battery life. Our current battery test, which loops HD video on with 50 percent screen brightness and WiFi on (but not connected), generated a meager five hours and 15 minutes of runtime before the phone shut off. That's not completely out of line, given what the Xperia Z managed, but it's hardly the best showing we've seen. The One for AT&T lasted for two hours longer under that kind of strain with a similar battery capacity.
That said, we got a slightly more reasonable seven hours from a taxing real-world excursion that involved 120 photos, four HDR videos, a pair of phone calls and ample amounts of social networking. Odds are that you'll fare better in normal use, and we had no problems lasting through more than a full day of testing

S4 Pro is horrendous for battery consumption, hopefully the Snapdragon 800 is much better.
I wouldn't get your hopes up, the reason LG says they didn't put the 800 in the G Pad was because it gets "too hot"

I hope they keep the price point of the N4 and stick in a better camera :D

I don't think the FCC would like them just suddenly changing processors like that ;)

So the overall dimensions of the N5 are slightly smaller then the N4 but the screen is bigger. So that means the top and bottom bezel or whatever will be smaller :D

Hopefully they release a bumper with the phone. The nexus 4 bumper is one of the best cases I've ever used.
