Default [Q] HDX 7in battery life gaming?

Hi all, I just got my device and I can only get around 2h30min playing Anomaly Warzone 2 (some of the best graphics out there).
Compared to 11 hours of usage time amazon advertizes it pretty much supprises me,
Is it normal? Or I got a flawed device?

Gaming will always have am affect on the battery on the device. Have you tried letting the battery reset itself by letting it drain to 0% and then charging it back up to 100% before use?

Draining it to 0 is for nimh/nicad, not lithium...

I still haven't been to sleep so pardon my mistake.

But aside from my post about resetting the battery, if you are running a game that is very intensive then your battery life will drain very fast. But using a web browser you should at least get good battery life.

Also are you running high brightness on your device?

11 hours is for basic use. Gaming soaks up CPU and GPU power like a sponge. I play quite a bit of Real Racing 3 and I easily eat up 10-20% of battery in about 10 races or so.

Yes I set the brightness to auto adjusting. I sat by my window in broad daylight so I guess the screen brightness is maxed out. But still it is kinda sad because my old Ipad Mini managed to get 4 hours of infinity blade 2 in same scenario.

I get about 5-6 hours browsing webs, facebook in, chatting... Etc... By the way.

The iPad is also basically an app drawer. iOS doesn't drain the battery as much as Android does.
