pavilion x360 low battery life

Product Name: Pavilion x360
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 8.1 (64-bit)

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.

Re: pavilion x360 low battery life

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.
