    Default Battery life with 32gb model

    I was one of the lucky early buyers of the 32gb model. I can't get through the day on one charge. In two hours my battery went 100 to 72 percent. Has anyone with a 32gb notice poor battery life.

    Curious, is this with constant use or sitting idle?

    Assuming you're talking about two hours of screen on time, that would equal ~7 hours total, which is normal for the N7 (depending on brightness).

    For light use (surfing, IRC, some Google Earth, reading books, WiFi on the whole time), I get about 9 hours of screen on time on the 16GB. If you're playing games, of course that'll use more power. Around 7 hours isn't all that bad. Maybe check that your WiFi isn't set to stay on when the screen is off.

    I only get about 5-6 hours of use (screen on) on a charge myself. I have the 8GB model.

    I have the exact same issue. I have the 16GB and just bought a 32GB when it was released and the 32GB doesn't get anywhere near the same amount of battery life. I have seen 6% lost in 10 minutes just browsing the internet. Does anyone know if there's a fix for this?

    I haven't noticed decreased battery life, but I have noticed that when I charge, it goes from 100% when fully charged to 99% immediately. I never experienced that with my 16gb. I also had it never finish charging a couple of nights ago, just stayed on 99%. Anybody else notice any of that?

    I have not noticed a difference between the 16 and the 32 gb.

    I've had a lot of problems with battery too, it seems like 32gb one lasts around 6 hours with moderate use. I got two 32gb ones and it's the same for both.

    Damn, I just got mine at GameStop, and they said I can bring it back and exchange it for another, but I can't return it for a 16GB version

    Just sell it on eBay and get the 16 if you need longer battery life

    Battery life obsession is a common topic on all forums. Don't throw away the unit if you are only getting six hours of use between charges. Look and see what the big power users are and decide if you can control them better.

    Can't see any reason other than software or apps or usage that the battery life would be different. This is the same as the 8GB and 16GB except for the additional memory. Memory doesn't use battery.

    I got an early 32gb and my battery life was really bad at first. After my second week, it got better. I finally found out that I had my screen on full brightness. I set it on auto and I got longer battery life. I also downloaded cache cleaner and task killer. It's amazing how many programs run in the background.
