    Hi - I'm new to Nexus and apparently I don't know my device too well... does the graph with "1day 4 hours..." mean that is how much time you have LEFT? or how much you have used it?

    Mine hasn't made it a full day on a single charge yet, so I'm a little worried. I don't seem to have anything guzzling down battery on its own. The top offenders are: Screen Andriod OS, Tablet Idle, WiFi, and Android System Followed by Google Services. Doesn't seem too out of the ordinary to me.

    Also, I have the screen set to standby at 15 seconds, and the screen brightness is at about 25-30% right now. Thoughts?

    I get about 4-5 hrs screen time and about 1 full day in between charges. That's including listening to music with the screen off. I think that's about average and I'm very happy with that.

    I get about 7-7,5 hours screen on time, all the time wifi browsening, and about 2 days between charges. Not bad.

    It all depends on your use.

    If you're using to to watch streaming video with screen brightness anywhere above 20%, sure you'll get probably 5 hours on it. watching local video, probably 7 or so. Web browsing is a massive variable because it depends on the size of the site you are trying to load, how often you are actually navigating pages, content on the page, etc. I've seen anywhere between 5 and 9 hours of browsing time depending on content. Listening to music with the screen off? It'll still be playing when you go to bed at night.

    Battery life depends *entirely* on how much you are taxing the device. this is true of any device from a battery. Sit a laptop down and leave Word open on it and it'll last for significantly longer than if you use it to watch netflix. This is also why a Kindle's battery can last for months, it doesn't actually have to do anything.

    I think stand by time also has something to do with it. Last night I plugged mine in on over 2 days of use on a charge and the screen on time was about 5 and a half hours at 15% left. On days that I've used it more often and thus less stand by time I've seen 9 hours

    Now that most of us have year old tablets, I suspect we won't be getting close to 8 hour screen-on battery life due to battery wear.
