Default Nexus 7 battery dies fast

Hi, I got a nexus 7 for Christmas and the battery was really good lasted all day, but I had to return it for an exchange because there was circle marks on the screen,

my new nexus 7's battery dies really fast, i left it on charge all night and it fully charges so I don't think its a battery issue maybe a software issue?

I don't know if this makes a difference but my first nexus had 4.2.1 pre installed but my new nexus I had to update it myself.

Is there a way to fix this or should I return my nexus to PC world?

Thanks in advance!

Tom

The main difference I found when switched from 4.1 to 4.2 is that Wifi didn't go on standby when the device wasn't awake. So go into wifi settings and change it so it's only connected to Wifi when the device is in use or charging.

Do you use the charger that came with it?

It stays on' I went into Wi-Fi settings and pressed the 3 dots on top right > advanced > keep Wi-Fi on during sleep and select never and it should turn off when your nexus 7 is sleeping.

What? Could you restate that so that we (or at least I) can understand? It sounds like you're saying 2 different things.

Hello, I'm in the UK and I'm facing a problem similar to yours.
I got my device at the beginning of December, and used to get ~8-9 hours of screen time. Now, I'm barely getting 6, and you can add screen lifting and back light bleeding issues to that as well.

I'm going to preform a factory reset in a few days, if that doesn't work, I'm considering getting it to customer care/replaced.

PS, I'm stock 4.2.1 and my Wi-Fi doesn't turn off when it's in sleep mode. :-\
