    Default Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4: battery life was awesome right out the box...

    When I first got it out the box, I charged it when it got low and it lasted me a whole 2 days before I had to charge it again last evening. Now after the 2nd charge, battery level was not as great as the first day. How's your battery life?

    Now if I can figure out how to attach a screenshot picture to this post on this tablet, I'll post asap. Any ideas?

    For me it was the opposite. Battery life wasn't great the first day, but now it's good.

    I've been using it quite a bit and have my brightness at 50%.

    Mine has been going back and forth. I've only charged it maybe four times but it seems that one charge lasts longer than another. I think it will level out after a few more cycles. Maybe 10-15 total. For me thats about a month away.

    PS. Do you all wait until it zeroes out and dies completely or when the battery bar turns yellow (usually around 18%) before you all charge it up?

    Same here. Except when I know I'm going to get more than 7 hours of screen time. I just do it to get screenshots lol

    Looks like battery life is all over the place for now until everyone has had it long enough. Can anyone tell me if the tablet has vibration alerts or haptic feedback? thanks

    I just charge whenever. I figure now a days manufactures kind of dummy proof batteries, there not like they used to be. After all majority of the public have no logic behind their charging and discharging of batteries. Companies have to plan for that.

    I was getting roughly 6hrs in the first few days but i think it was because of the heavy use of downloading, installing, copying movies and music...etc, but since getting set in my daily routine this is my typical outcome.



    I dont use the auto screen brightness as i find its too aggressive with the dimming, so i just set it to roughly 10%. Give or take pending room.

    Try using the app Lux for auto brightness. It works so much better than stock! I'm using it on this and my phone now.
