    Default What's the verdict on 7.1 battery life ?

    Any better on 7.1 ??

    My 9790 was on ebay last night until I found the thread about the gold batteries. Quite a few mixed reviews but I figure I will give one a go before selling. I'm on 7.1 with battery saving always on and I can still flatten the battery in 6 hours.

    My beloved 9780 easily does 2 days.

    UPDATE: After removing "drivesafe.ly pro compliments of blackberry" my battery life is easily doubled. This was the free giveaway from rim. I uninstalled it as it had stopped working correctly. 8pm now and I'm on 70% where I would normally be on 30%. Im tempted to try turning on 3G tommorow.... Very happy.

    7.1 for my 9900 is awesome. Battery used to need charging around 5 pm. After I installed 7.1, I can go all day and just throw it on the charger at bed (still has a couple bars left usually).

    As mnhockeycoach99 points, with 7.0, my 9790 battery was awful. After 7.1 9the Norweagian telenor update) is way much better.

    I'm a power user and also use bridge along with the Playbook. It last a whole day now.

    Can't wait to try 7.1. With my old 9700, 2 days was no sweat. Now, with my 9900, I can barely get 7 hours normal usage.

    9790 batthery life with 7.1 (Telenor update) is much better. I can't spend a all day with 3G without any problem. 7.1 comes with the battery saving option which helps. Be careful as some apps my drain your battery. I only keep the apps I need and use.

    Yup, this is very true, specially indie apps or those Beta apps (Facebook, Twitter, BBM).

    All these can hit your battery life.

    iv actually noticed a significant 'rise' in battery life, i'm a very heavy user and get through the whole day without even dropping below 20%, and its been about 5/6 days since i've been using it! also would recommend deleted weathereye and any other weather app cus i found that used to kill my battery

    Is it fair to say that after upgrading to 7.1, battery life comes at par with 9700?

    9700’s battery life was rock solid. Perhaps the best of all the 5 BBs I have used so far….

    comparable to the 9700? Unfortunately - no.

    9700 on 2G I got 4days with usage and 30% battery left.

    9790 on 2G: 1,5 days and battery warning.

    With the 7.1 OS and all the apps without refreshing (like FB or Twitter) as I don't think I need them to refresh as they notify me when I get any personal message or notification, my battery last for 9-10 hours.

    I usually make a quick charge during afternoon in order to arrive properly at night, otherwise I can't get at night with the mobile phone on.

    But it is quite more than it used to be with 7.0 for sure!

    Cheers!

    It says X axis - time (DAY). It's probably the day, 3rd to 4th
