My tablet may well be dying, part 2 ***Factory reset time, wish me luck***

A couple-few days ago, I posted this, and was ready to give up. I followed dozens of 'fix' instructions, made sure everything was updated, killed ALL OF THE TASKS!!!, and still had battery drain problems.

Yesterday morning, after just under one hour of use, the battery went from a 100% to 80%. Around 10 a.m., I notice an OS update pending. Wait...how can this be? I checked it a dozen times, up to date, it read 4.3 Jelly Bean (btw, it's a nexus 7). Okay. Weird. I'll bite.

I let it do its thing, and figure, this may actually be THE fix, several articles stated it was supposed to be just that. I was super excited that I may not have to move all my stuff around for a warranty swap.

Performance was slightly better yesterday. Slightly. Don't even get me started on the Chrome update. The better part of the day was still spent tethered to the charger. Ugh.

This morning, samesies. Nearly 20% battery loss in an hour. I don't think I'm willing to wait & see if it self-corrects with the update. I'm currently uploading all of my photos/files. I'm so irritated, and I expect more from Google. I left this tablet 'stock' too. And folks wonder why I have trust issues. Meh.

Thank you for allowing me to disgrunt. (Totally just GWB'd a word. Yep.)
