I see a lot of posts about battery life draining faster on the New nexus 7 vs the old one, but when I look up the specs on Asus site, the old Nexus 2012 is listed at 9 hours even though it has a slightly larger capacity battery than the one on the new nexus 2013. The nexus 2013 is listed as 10 hours. So I decide to do my own test by taking note of how long my battery can last after a full charge. On normal usage which consists of web browsing and some youtube videos, I'm getting a good 8-10 hours before I go below 10%, pretty on par with the battery life estimate of 10 hours given by Asus on the Nexus 2013 specifications. My nexus 7 is the wifi 2013 model. It is rooted but running stock 4.2.2 KitKat. Tell me about your nexus battery life. Does it hold up as well?
