Rooted owners with LTE T805 or T705 can save battery power with the app below, it has an link to the XDA thread where it was made.

The app switches from 4G to 2G to save power automatically.

Hi Guys,

I have 8.4 S Tab and CPU-Z shows my battery as 2100 mAh. It should be 4900 mAh. What do you see on your tablet in CPU-Z under battery section? Please turn Battery Capacity to ON.

Thank you,
Martin

Your battery is 4900 cpu-z gets a few things wrong until a correction is made, try "battery monitor widget" for an real battery app.

Or my favorite "GSam Battery Monitor" you can set various alarms, for battery temp, level, heath ect, it save my bacon when an faulty app went berserk and tried to fry my tab but the temperature alarm woke me up.

The nexus 9 will get better battery life when browsing the internet as it has an lcd display, but the Tab 10.5" will get better battery life if you play videos as oled displays generally use less power when playing video`s, so it depends on how you use your tablet.

If you use an browser that has night mode and then the oled display will use a lot less power when browsing the internet.
