Heard a lot of rumors about the battery not being big enough / having lackluster battery life, etc., etc. Does anyone know the truth on this matter?

It depends on the model. I had a German one for a week or two and the battery life was amazing (I got a couple days out of each charge easy) but I heard that many of the American galaxy nexus had some battery issues because of LTE issues. But there was supposedly a software fix that helped that released shortly after the Galaxy Nexus hit American shores so it should have been worked out since then I'd assume.

With these frustrating issues in the galaxy nexus, Samsung has again proved it failure. Already all the phone models of samsung are facing battery drainage issues and when the users are awaiting a powerful battery, samsung is no where fixing its battery issues.
The same cheap body material and cheap battery, then why are they charging so much of price to their phone models.
Samsung phones are very cheap and waste.

well i just got one and ive heard of a task killer download that is suppose to fix that.But i went to you tube and there is a guy there who explains that the new nexus will run apps in the background until the phone isn used for a short time. it then stops the apps from running and eventually closes them automatically.
Of course if the phone is being used continuously for 8 hours or more the battery will drain. After all it is a computer in nature,

understanding this the battery is sufficient enough for me anyway.

My suggestion? Root and overclock it, and then use system tuner pro to manage processor settings. My processor idles at almost 0 when the screen is off, but I have it set to shoot to 1.7ghz per core when using heavy applications.

Im getting great battery life on my Sensation since rooting it.

Just bought a Nexus and can say that the battery life is lackluster. With heavy usage (playing games, reading websites), it'll only last you 3-4 hours. Light usage can definitely get you through the day, but it's all dependent on how bright you make the screen. The brighter the screen, the shorter the battery life.

Web browsing uses a lot of the battery. So it is hard to say because some people can charge once a day and others have to charge their smart phones more than that because if you are excessively using the internet you are looking at charging it 1-2 times a day.

regarding battery life. the initial reviews on the Nexus were almost a 5.0 from all different sources. Consumer Reports, P.C. World, CNet... etc However the one issues with the phone is the battery life. I carry three batteries with me were ever I go. Also recently purchased a 7000 AhM power pack from Motorola, point being. First don't use ur car charger unless absolutely necessary. I learned this a long time a go. most people want to get in there cars and plug in there phones. this will kill your battery quicker than ur car battery in a Michigan winter. again I was told and learned that you and your battery need to learn from each other. past practice should be to let your battery drain to 20 - 30% even as low to the point that the warning comes on telling u to charge your battery. batteries only have so many cycles in them before they are used up. I suggest buying a 2100 AhM , buy original, don't buy cheap. let me digress. Again stay away from the car charger. Drain your battery to atleast 30% remember the batteries only have so many cycles (lives ) in them. Also the Nexus was rated in the top five phones in 2011.
Personally I love my Nexus, I switched from a Droid. It was a hard transition at first but no regrets now. The only reason I have not upgraded to galaxy III is because I'm on an unlimited plan with Verizon. once I switch I loose my unlimited data. not wanting to get way off track like I have been for the last two paragraphs. if you can buy galaxy III, buy it. all the Minor issues that were wrong with the Nexus have been addressed, especially the battery life.
