    Hi I recently bought my tablet. The box proudly says my tablet has a 7300 mAh capacity battery. So does the Best Buy website.

    There seems to be two Galaxy Tab E 9.6 releases...the original 8GB, 1.3gz CPU with a 5000mAh battery like you will find reviewed virtually everywhere

    And the one I have where the box says 16gb, 1.2gz CPU and 7300mAh battery.

    The problem I am having is my Android Battery stats under settings say I have a 5000mAh battery. Why is that??

    This is really annoying. The battery life is great. I don't want to miss out on a potential 2300mAh that my phone is ignoring or shutting down before using.

    Maybe it's just a software bug. What do you guys think?

    I posted the above. I wrote phone at the end, I meant tablet.

    Am I missing out on any battery life or is this just a software glitch. Maybe they forgot to change the bin file when they gave my version of the galaxy tab e 9.6 a bigger battery.

    Cheers.

    SOLVED

    I went to Best Buy to check out the display model of my device. I checked the mAh and it read 7300.

    The display device was still running Lollipop when i checked it out. I took the time to do the Marshmallow update in store ( this took forever) and bam...post update read 5000 mAh.

    Update Bug. I hope my device is able to utilize it all still. My instincts tell me everything is ok.
