Mine seems to go down faster than my Ipad?

But I have not done a side by side test yet.

From 100% down to 50% I get about six hours of screen time. Browsing, Newsstand, Tapatalk, YouTube.

I'm the type of person that tops off battery every night so as long as I make it through the day on a single charge I'm satisfied. That said I typically do so with at least 50% remaining having had over 4 hours of screen on time sometimes more depending on what I've done. For me this is tablet is MUCH better than my LTE Galaxy Tab 10.1 which would suck battery like crazy for no reason sometimes.

My wife has an iPad 2 but I can't compare this to that because usage patterns aren't the same and never would be since features aren't either. With widgets and other services running in the background on mine her ipad would always be ahead even in standby mode. That said I find standby time excellent on this tablet. I'm rooted though and have things greenified.

For me the battery life is really good. I been using mine for the past three days without charging it. Not a heavy use but youtube, browsing, and downloading apps. I'm really happy with it
