    so does my Transformer have an incredibly bad battery life?

    When i first charged it i did it with the tab connected to the dock so i dont think it charged the tab unit itself
    What I've done since was run the battery completely flat and left it to charge for a whole day
    Turns out i can only get 4ish hours of usage which doesnt seem right at all
    So what should i do with this tablet to fix the problem :-(

    Also mytablets screen has a warm yellowy tint to it, is that normal?

    No this doesn't would normal to me but I would try a hard reset. Here are the instructions.
    Hard Reset:
    Unplug the power cord and shut the unit off and Press and Hold the power button and the Down volume button together for 6-10 seconds and let them both go. You should see a little shape in the middle of the screen so just press and release the Down volume button again and let it reboot. If you own the dock be sure and do this with the dock connected.
    Current Devices:
    Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition - Dell Venue 11 Pro Bay Trail (On Order) - LG Optimus G Pro

    Neither of those issues are normal. I'm going on about 60 hours with no charge and moderate use and am still at 30%.

    Try the hard reset like Mickeylittle suggested and if that doesn't work then take that sucker back. The first TF that I received was a bit of a lemon and I had to send it back to NewEgg. It was a hassle but I'm really glad I did because the replacement is way better.

    As far as the battery mine onley lasted 4 hours the first charge.
    Now after 4 recharges l get around 7 hours.
    As the display proplem a reset may fix that.

    The Hard Reset won't reset the battery but it will correct any things that the Transformers OS may be doing incorrectly that may be chewing thru your battery life.

    mytab, Try what Mickey says, we want to get your TF running right so you don't have to return it.
