    Curious, read about one of the updates that battery life is better when idle mode.
    Has anyone experienced better battery life?
    Also, is there a setting for idle battery mode?
    Thanks.
    Also said better audio quality-what is better about it?

    yes, I've noticed a significant difference in battery life. Can make it through a day without the need of a charge.

    When i do not have bridge turned on its awesome. I turn bridge on and my battery life goes down. I did not notice this with .580.

    The last two updates have improved the battery life each time. Update .580 made the most noticeable difference!

    I think .755 actually uses slightly more battery life even when idle compared to .580... debating going back or staying...

    Do you mean BlackBerry Device Analyzer? If so, it's been hidden for ages now. Go to Options and type BBDA to enable it.

    Once you've typed BBDA in Options to enable it, go to Device > Advanced System Settings and scroll to the bottom to find it.

    Bridge has always been a bat-life killer. You kinda always needed to be charging while using it.
