Default Tab 8.4 battery life

Trying to work out if my tab battery is working as it should, i just run a sd video on full brightness for 10 mins and it took 4%. At that rate i will only get about 4 hours on a full charge. That seems really low, can someone else try this and let me know how much battery you use. Thanks

Check your battery usage and see where your trons are going. I watch full length movies on less than 10%

How long are those movies, about 1.5 - 2 hours? I just tested an hour long video and my battery went down 10%. Wireless was tuned off, and screen brightness was in the 30-40% range.

When I look at my battery usage, the android system, android os, and media server take up the most power (about 50% altogether). But I wouldn't know where to start to improving battery life.

With wifi turned on and doing casual web browsing and watching YT, I still get about a 10~15% decrease in one hour.
