Yoga Tab 3 Pro 4300 MAH battery!?!

I have the latest one with 4gb RAM. Is this normal?? Can someone with yoga tab 3 pro tell me what battery apps say their battery is?? For the record I've been having battery life problems too maybe only getting 8 hours! That's with Bluetooth GPS and everything off. No auto brightness, Google voice or anything either. Battery life as advertised in 10200 MAH which should give more than a max of 7-9 hours I think. Should/can I RMA?

 

 

I find myself running in battery saver mode all the time too in order to get maybe 9 hours of on screen time. 

I am usually around 40% brightness

Been testing and can confirm I'm getting like 7.5 hours of use at 25% brightness without battery saver mode. Running YouTube and chrome. I'm using the stopwatch app to test

 

This isn't very good Smiley Sad

Shows a 10200mah battery on mine. Battery drain might be because of Android 5.0; which doesn't have Android Doze.  Android 6.0 should be coming soon...

 

You could still RMA, visit http://support.lenovo.Com/

Re: Yoga Tab 3 Pro 4300 MAH battery!?!

Thank you for checking this. I am running android 6.0 on my unit. Also I do not have multi window and Netflix is not available to download offline.... Battery life is 7-9 hours which would be more consistent with 7000 MAH battery and neither 4300 MAH or 10200 so I find that quite strange. I doubt Lenovo will do anything for me but I guess I should ask.

Great, hopefully they can help.

 

Quick question, when did you get the Android 6.0 update? Just curious because there's an update thread about Android 6.0 for the Tab 3 Pro.

 

Thanks!

Nope I was essentially told because I bought it from Israel there's nothing they can do Smiley Sad

I can't get in touch with Israel Lenovo. Looks like I'm out of luck. I just gotta accept what I have. I get around the same battery life.
