Tracking still not updated. Still says "A UPS shipping label has been created. Once the shipment arrives at our facility, the tracking status--including the scheduled delivery date--will be updated." Got shipping notice yesterday afternoon, being shipped to Windsor. Will I get mine before the Toronto people?

The only battery review process I can trust is Anandtech's.

Yup that or GSMArena.

Honestly if it can get me 4+ hours of ON screen time then its already a Winner in my books. I tried all ROMS and custom Kernels for N4, Max I could get was 3 hours.

wtf? did u have location on, LTE on, 50% brightness, all syncs and notifications running? using custom roms/kernels should get at least 5hours SOT YMMV of course as we all use different apps/settings

GSMarena's battery life tests are pretty good too. Standard testing.

I have Greenify activiated, Location Access always turned off. Brightness is on Auto. I only Sync Google Contacts, Gmail, Keep & App Data.

Oh and no LTE, Sticked with 3G.

Damn come to think of it N5 will have 4G along with 1080p display. 2300 mAh now doesn't seem good enough at all. :(

When I got my N4 last year... I had the free shipping because Google had mess up some orders.
But the shipping they used was probably the cheapest UPS could provide. No signature.
The brown man just left the small box on my porch... 300$ phone sitting like that... on the open.

I hope this time, for my 17$ I get the full service from UPS.

It's going to be the same procedure. I agree it is pretty careless of them leaving the package unattended but you could always change the address on Google Play to your work address or Let someone know to keep an eye out for the package.

You got a refund for that? Same thing happened to me when I bought the 16GB during the price drop period. They ran the bell and just left it on the porch.

I e-mailed them at 11PM the day I ordered - Got a confirmation e-mail saying it was cancelled but lo and behold I still got a shipping confirm saying it will arrive on Wednesday. I will refuse the package, not looking to sell at cost because the transportation/time taken to find a seller wouldn't be worth it. (Unless someone is willing to come to my house/at work lol)
