I got this Thursday afternoon. 50% full out of the box. Immediately charged it... took about 3 hours to get to 100%. I spent approx 6 continuous hours on it that evening downloading apps and setting it up the way I like it. When I went to bed the battery was still 60% full. I checked when I woke up and it was 40%. I used it throughout the day with normal use. The battery was down to 5% around 9pm that night. Given this use I would expect most people to still have to charge it nightly but there should be no issues getting through the day unless you stream a lot.
