As you know, a few days ago the Android 4.2.2 update was released for the Nexus line of devices. The update is not yet certain what it changes, but as usual it brings stability and performance updates. However there is something that Google wants us to notice after this update. On the product page of the Nexus 7 they have modified the battery life of active use with 2 extra hours. This makes us think that the update is responsible for this. As Google is lately focusing on creating a device that can last longer, it is very probable that this last update works better with the processor eliminating the unnecessary battery drainage. So Android 4.2.2 improves battery life of the Nexus 7, and probably of the other Nexus devices. Besides improving battery life, Android 4.2.2 also gives you the option to toggle WiFi and Bluetooth via Quick Settings, some bug fixes and new sounds for when the battery is getting low. At first the update didn't look so interesting, but know that it is supposed to increase battery life it makes it more appealing. If you updated your Nexus device with Android 4.2.2 you can share with us your battery experience.
