    I will say in my personal testing, I found that the Galaxy's charge time was the longest of any of the different tablets I used. We do have several threads on saving battery, but basically, turn on Auto-brightness, turn on Airplane Mode and then only turn on the Network access type you need (WiFi or 3g/4g depending on device type), and only use BT if you need it.

    Other than that, battery and power management is MUCH improved in Honeycomb compared to Gingerbread and Froyo.

    I've found 3.2.1 to be much more stable than 3.1
