In an attempt to quantitatively measure the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus' battery life in a controlled benchmark environment, we ran a test in which we set up a webpage with a mix of graphics and text. The page automatically refreshes every three minutes. This is a simple baseline test that measures up time with web browsing.
For this test, we set the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus’ display to 50% brightness, which is still plenty bright and easy on the eyes. The tablet survived almost exactly 7.5 hours before giving out, which isn’t too shabby.
The Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus delivered a solid if unremarkable score in this test, beating out the Lenovo IdeaPad K1 by 25 minutes, but falling short of the Galaxy Tab 10.1 and the Transformer by 92 minutes and 79 minutes, respectively.
