How is Google Nexus 7 battery life? Nexus 7 has 4325 mAh built-in battery. Based on Google official specification, Nexus 7 can perform 9 hours of HD video playback or 10 hours of web browsing or 10 hours of e-reading or 300 hours of standby on full charged. However, I am not getting this kind of battery life on my Nexus 7. Of course, most of these specs have no background applications running while we have in real life.

I am still running stock firmware on Nexus 7 (with root access). No other modification yet. Not much application installed as well. But I do face several wakelocks and need to time to troubleshoot. Or I should try out custom ROM instead. Anyway, the biggest battery eater is Nexus 7 IPS screen. So keeping display backlight at minimum should help to improve Nexus 7 battery life a lot.
