    Default Google Nexus 7 (2013) battery life sucks

    Not sure if I am the only one but I pulled it off the charger at 8am and I am down to 72 percent.

    A little more background history on the device and its setup would help. Battery stat screenshots, etc..

    Here's a tutorial on how to take a screen shot:


    My battery life is excellent. You might have something running in the background draining your battery.

    Guess the app will not let me add photos. Seems that screen is the killer

    Naw, something else must be dragging your battery down. I get great battery life from mine. Right now I'm at 12 hours use, with 2.5 hours of screen on-time, and 64% battery remaining.

    Now that is compatible with KitKat, I recommend installing it. It'll give you a clearer breakdown on what's using your battery.

    Also, I have noticed slightly better battery life when switching from Davlik to ART under the developer settings. Haven't found an app that this breaks yet. Fair warning, make sure you are fully charged and have a good 15 minutes of time because every app will get optimized after you switch.

    How did you get the developers options? Before it updated I clicked the version number and got the jelly bean but the jelly ban didn't animate and developers options didn't appear in the menu. Now that it updated, though, I can't click the version number at all. What gives?

    The screen is using the most. Turned down the brightness a bit. Been off the charger since 8 and only down to 95%. I think because it is new to me I was nonstop on it is why.

    I clicked multiple times on build number to get it. Did not count how many though

    Wow thanks for this. I have noticed this tip has made my apps open faster.

    I've also found ART to be an improvement overall. For a list of app compatibility:



    edit: should note that this list appears to cover all ART-capable devices, not just the N7 and may not be completely correct for the N7, e.g., Dropsync says Not Working but it does work under ART on my N7.

    Interesting that the list indicates Slingplayer to work under ART, but it doesn't. I sure wish it did. I've written to Slingbox asking about this and they acknowledged their app doesn't work under ART, and indicated that they are "looking into it".

    I got my nexus 7 2013 on Christmas day . The battery life was great to start with but today it was at 58% and I watched a 2 hour movie and it went down to 10%, this is a much larger drain than the 9 hours of HD movie watching they advertise it at I watched a couple of tv shows on it the day after I got it with much less drain so not sure why this was such a big drop. I never seem to have a lot of luck on my devices getting anywhere near the advertised battery length so I don't know if it's just that they exaggerate on the advertising or if I'm just unlucky with my devices and batteries.

    In my experience battery life is entirely dependent on screen brightness. Turn brightness way down when watching a movie in a dark room and watch battery life become quite good.

    Those published battery life specs are always done at minimum brightness.

    I'd imagine this is even more true with tablets than phones seeing as the size is a lot larger

    Click the "Build Number" under "About Tablet" in "Setting" exactly seven (7) times to get the "Developer Options" to appear. It will say "Congratulations, you are a developer" or something like that when it has been clicked or tapped the correct number of times and it will say "No need, you are already a developer" or something similar if you have already completed this step.

    Almost forgot, I was posting to say how great my battery life is on my 32gb Nexus 7 (2013) both before and after switching from Davlik to ART under the developer settings.
