I can play about 3 hours straight of Dead Trigger on one charge (high graphics) OR more than 6 episodes of Walking Dead (no comercials so about 45mins per episode and still had some charge left, forgot how much)

I think his answer was perfect. There's good battery and bad battery, it's as simple as that. X hours of playing/watching X by somebody tells me nothing about a gazillion other factors playing a role (or not). This tab has a not so good battery but it isn't terrible either.

I think go with yoga probally gonna play for fpse and other emulators so cpu/gpu doesnt have to be a beast.

I think your right i was going for longer battery life in the end. the yoga suppose to get 10 hr of video time or more bet gamming probally be 6-8 hour range of midlle of the road games.

I use it for reading, web browsing, email and such. The occasional puzzle game or chess. I'm getting about 3 days out of it. So it's not great but as I use it at home and the charger is always close by, screen resolution was the more important point for me. Before I had the yoga for about 2 weeks before exchanging it for the g pad. The yogas battery life was just amazing compared to the g pad, but the screen has 100 ppi less, which made reading really straining to the eyes in my case. Just to give one of hopefully many examples that can help you decide based on your own usage patterns.

I've rooted and stuck Madhi rom (4.4.2) on mine. Using it for nearly a week now, but the battery isn't brilliant. Had a China 8" tab before which also wasn't good with battery (and an awful ppi for that matter).

Roughly my usage is similar, or just a bit better than erwaso's. I get a bit more on certain things like video playback as I've optimised the Build.prop to save on battery. Also I've used an app to stop all major wakelocks and throttled the cpus to run slightly lower clock speed and on demand.

Personally I don't like any Apple products, but you can't beat there tablets for battery life; Android is too power hungry!

Yea, i don't read i never learned lol no i don't read anything other than an article on the web. I wanted it for movies and light gaming via fpse and other emulator's so the yoga's long battery life was what i was going for. The toshiba has slightly better cpu and screen but the battery life reports on review varies alot 200 250 was my price range also considering the nook hd plus get decent battery life on the reviews and has full hd screen. I
'm leaning towards that 180 i can pick it up tomorrow. The other's i have to order online. Ty for your feedback.
