probably the kernels haven't quite caught up yet ;)

battery life on the Nexus 4 seems about the same or slightly worse :(, but i am using Llama which eats a bit of battery

MultiUser support via kitchen only please

I definitely use my phone differently to how I use my Tablet as it is very rare that I give my phone to anyone else and even then it would most likely be my wife rather than someone who I was worried about them looking through it.

Can I ask if there will be any downsides? I have some apps which weren't too happy with the move to 4.2 but I take it that adding MultiUser functionality won't break anything any further? I.e. if it works in 4.2 then the app will work with MultiUser?

I have the same experience. Charging the phone more frequently to be sure that I have enough battery. I'm not sure what it is cause by, but I have fixed the sync to not be syncing as often. Unsure of this has actually had any result for longer battery life. However, I also experience some problems with sending text messages (SMS). I'm not sure what this is caused by.

Battery life has dramatically decreased since 4.2. My Nexus doesn't survive a day at work. I guess, it's because of attempts to log into 3g. That was always a pity at my workplace, but it is more worse since 4.2.
Has anybody an alternative but smooth running kernel? I used Franco's but it lags as hell. I also tested Trinity's which is unusable.
And Facelock gets always baked in, even when disabled in the kitchen.

Excellent! Will this be coming to Nexus 4 too? Got my first tags last night and It did seem odd that a tag couldn't be used to wake the device....
