Nexus 7 on Android 4.2.2 has 10 hours of battery life instead of 8

After releasing the Android 4.2.2 update, Google has changed the Nexus 7 product page too, listing 10 hours under battery life instead of the previous 8 hours.

Android 4.2.2 is upon us, which means that most Nexus devices out there can be upgraded to the latest mobile OS version released by Google.

But a day after the Android 4.2.2 roll out, Android Police noticed something interesting with the Nexus 7 product pages. Google has updated the them to reflect better battery life for the device, with the Nexus 7 now capable to offer “up to 10 hours of active user” instead of the previous eight hours.

At the same time, we shouldn’t be surprised to see Google try to improve battery life, as this one seems to be one of the concerns that need to be addressed in future devices, at least according to Larry Page (although he was talking about future Motorola future handsets). What better way to start than by optimizing software?


We’re definitely waiting for more feedback from Nexus 7 owners that already rock Android 4.2.2 under the hood. Are you experiencing a longer battery life than before? Have you noticed battery life improvements on any other Nexus devices?
