There were some Lenovo Miix 2 users that have been complaining about poor battery life on their Windows 8.1 eight incher tablet, and it seems that it was a Windows 8.1 software-related issue. A new update seems to take care of the problem.
We have been comparing the Lenovo Miix 2 with the Acer Iconia W4 and with the Toshiba Encore and the Dell Venue 8 Pro because we truly believe it’s one of the best Windows 8 tablets available, despite of its affordable price and smaller size.
But what I’ve seen when covering the Lenovo Miix 2 is that its battery life had different values: Lenovo said one thing, Amazon another thing and the reviewers a totally different one. And it seems that there indeed was a software, Windows 8.1 related issue.
Microsoft has released a Windows 8.1 update meant to fix battery issues experienced by Lenovo Miix2 8 tablet owners, saying that “this issue occurs because the device cannot enter a low power state mode.” Lenovo Miix 2 users need to follow the link from the end to download and install the KB2913236 Windows 8.1 update to put an end to battery problems.
