    Anyway guys i need your ideas or tips how to save my battery as much as possible !
    For one thing i know that screen brightness is a main factor and i set it at 25-30 % i guess.
    One thing i noticed that while browsing it drains the battery quickly i dont know if the problem from Chrome browser or not !

    Good question! I'm "fanatic" about squeezing as much as I can from a single battery charge.
    Here is what I've done:
    Reduced brightness to 25% (as you've mentioned)
    Turned off gps, wifi, blutooth when not being used
    Uninstalled the apps I never use (cautious about google stuff since I'm not sure what is connected to what).
    Used white-text-on-black-screen for book reading
    Turned off display when not needed (for music, podcasts)
    No graphics with music player
    Made sure no battery-hogs were running in background (uninstalled "Drip" news app for that reason)

    Happy to hear some recommendations from others.

    I always turn off wifi when not near one, I also downloaded Gsam battery monitor it is free in the play store and will give you a percentage of battery left.

    Welcome to Android Central! Here's my guide on battery tips: http://forums.androidcentral.com/amb...ving-tips.html.

    The screen will almost always be the primary battery drainer, especially the beautiful hi-res screen of the N7. How much total screen-on time are you getting per battery charge? Average is going to be around 5-6 hours with normal mixed real-world use. If you're getting that amount, then I wouldn't sweat it too much.

    Open Facebook, open left tab, scroll down to app settings and you should see it.

    Android apps are generally not meant to be stopped manually by the user. The way Android works, apps remain open in system RAM until more space is needed, and the system will decide which apps to close to make room. If you manually force stop an app, it might cause problems if, for example, it is in the middle of performing some action, or if some other app depends on it. But for the most part, you won't cause any major problem by force stopping an app.
