Hello. I recently bought Pavilion x360 11, and on pretty much every review site etc. there was written that the full charge should last for approx. 6 hs of browsing internet. I tested it twice just browsing internet, and not even that much because at the same time i was playing on my PC. Both tests ended up in laptop hibernating after 4-4.5hs. I must say that is rather low battery lifetime, specially for me as I bought it for outside use mostly. Can it be defective battery or maybe upgrade to win 10 would work it out for me ? (asking about win 10 because I've read couple general opinions about how it extended their battery lifetime from i.e. 6.5h to 9h ) Any help would be very appreciated, as I have to make a decision if i want to replace the laptop at store or not.
Thanks in advance.

Thank you for your reply, but i've already got to know the standard ways of improving battery life and I'm pretty sure i do everything correctly. Beside that I'm not really convinced that to reach the lifetime it should have just after i bought it i should make some weird settings change. For me at least that would be false advertising / cheating customers if the test would be ran at absolutely minimal settings and most energy saving.
