    Hopefully I am in the right spot. Really quick question regarding the battery from someone who has the Tablet (not the phone).

    How is the battery in standby? I have the original iPad and probably the only thing I love about it is the battery never drains even a percentage in standby. Last year I bought a Surface and probably the biggest reason I don't use it is because every 3 days I go to use it, it's already dead.

    If the battery is at 60% and I just leave it sitting there for a few days, it doesn't need to be at 60 still, but will it at least only have gone down a little?

    Thanks in advance for any info.

    I can say I never give it a thought for my Note, but my wife's Nexus 10 is a much different story. I never go 3 days without using it, but I do not worry about constantly changing it either. I go 2 days on acharge generally. I use it and love it a lot.

    Standby isn't as good as the iPad, but it's decent. For those times when I plan on not using it much ,I get the best results by putting it into Airplane Mode. If not, it'll be fairly low by the 3rd day. It's better than my Nexus 7 2013 model, which would be dead after 3 days or so if I don't leave it in Airplane Mode.

    I have the same experience as above. It is WAY better than my Nexus 7 used to be, but doesn't quite reach iPad levels. Still, I always try and drop it into Airplane mode if I'm not going to use it for a while, and that significantly improves battery life.

    I found that switching off WiFi saves battery life

    In wifi setting I have it to turnoff wifi when the tablet is sleeping. That way the battery will last a lot longer.
