Your M7 has half the battery that your opo has so it would charge quicker.

You need to make sure you're using a 2a charger, otherwise your charging performance is going to be awful whether you're tethering or not. You also need to make sure the cable your using can handle the current properly.

Please post your charger amp rating, I expect it to be below or at 1amp, which would be half of what the phone can be charged with. Also make sure the cable (if not bundled) is capable of handling the current. Many USB cables, especially longer ones, barely manage 0.5amp let alone 1 or even 2 amp.

I was using my Nexus One charger. I guess that is probably 1 amp. It old, but it did the job. I still miss using a trackball.

There are two issues Falen , Like everyone mentioned.

+ Charger
+ USB cables.

If you have the official charger ( from OPO which send current at 2 Amps ) and you have a non-official USB cables , it would not be sending the current at the rate that your charger send .

If you are using Official USB cables but the charger is not Official , then charger will not send the enough current to charge the device .

Check the below video to get some highlights :

So when power hunger apps like hotspot , GPS is being used your batter is draining faster than the power supplied and that could be the issue.

So i would recommend to buy the official charger / USB cable and see if that makes the difference , it would be expensive that the cheap charger but its worth the investment.

Battery drain during hotspot is normal on all phone. Basically hotspot took a lot of battery. It happened to all brands, Samsung, htc, and also iPhone.
