I read a recent article that made claims that our beloved N5's should be able to allow us to chit chat for yogi up to 17 hours!
Anyone ever got over 5-6?
Where do they get these specs? Is there an updated uranium battery i'm not aware of?

Nexus 7 talk time is hilarious 😂 😂. The actual specs are in the google play store and it does list 17 hours of talk time.

Anandtech pegged it at 13.7 hours talk time. The official technical specifications list 17 hours.

No phone usually lives up to its "specced" battery times. Usually.

It does have the official specs at 17 hours talk time. I don't know how that's possible though.

Just like when phones claim 300 hours standby. LOL. Try just over 100 usually at best.
