What charger are you using?? Are you using it while charging??
Does it say AC or USB?? AC charge at a higher amp than USB.
From 10ish% to full, take me like 2 hours.

My battery seems to charge VERY quickly, although I can't quantify it. I can go for more than an entire day of heavy use on a single charge, too smile.gif But to be fair, I rarely have the brightness set higher than 50%. The screen, like most mobile devices, consumes most of the battery, but even more so than I'm accustomed to.

Yeah i set it to 50% aswell. 100% was hurting my eyes...

So i have 4 Questions...

1. is Anyone using a Wifi Signal Boosting App if so which one?

2. Is anybody using a battery Boosting app if so which one?

3. What are you using for pop ups?

4. Does Android OS get Viruses? if so what are you using for protection?

1. no, and I would do google search for reviews.
2. I have toolbox rom lite (I think you have to be rooted.) it has app manager in it. (I am using it on galaxy S3, I am sure it will work with nexus 7)
3. Ad block (which comes with toolbox rom lite)
4. Yes it can, and also use common sense 2012


If you come across cute ginger girls and have pics pm me them :3

1.)No need for wifi signal booster. Change your kernel. Look up franco kernel installer on google play. itll do it all for you.
2.) I use 2x battery. My screen set to 0% unless watching youtube/looking at pictures. I can get a 2 days out of the battery.
3.) Search google play for adfree
4.) I use Avast.

As for charging. If I use the stock charger or my amazon kindle charger they both charge decently fast. I have a motorola charger that takes all dang night though. (Usually plug my phone up to the kindle charger and let the nexus charge on the moto one over night)

1) Nope.
2) Still nope, but try JuiceDefender (if it's compatible). Since it's a tablet, the downsides of JuiceDefender mostly don't apply, here.
3) Nothing yet.
4) I'm sure it does, but common sense will help you generally avoid them.

I don't really have WiFi problems. It achieves the same or similar performance that my RAZR M, iPad 2, 2 x iPhone 4's, and MBA do.
