    Default Re: Google Nexus 7 (2013) battery life sucks

    Mine is much better today. Been off charger since 9. Been using it moderately and still at 92%. Guess it just needed a few overnight charges to learn its place.

    Some games don't run well on ART. For example Frontiers doesn't ever load and GTA San Andreas has horrible clipping with white bars appearing everywhere. If you use your tablet for games I advise against ART.

    Back on topic, OP is probably just using his tablet a lot since he just got it. I'm actually quite impressed with the battery, I can get a couple days with moderate use. The only thing that drains my battery is gaming, but that should be expected for any tablet or phone. I'm sure movies would drain you as well, I would recommend a $35 chromecast to save battery while watching videos.

    Unfortunately chromecast is not available in Australia.
