    Default BB Z10 Battery Life (Z10 USER HELP ME!!)

    Hi everyone,

    I am just about to get a Z10, and I now have bold 9900 and before this iv had several iPhones.

    The battery life on my 9900 is somewhere between 2-3 hours from 100% to 0%, which is just stupid and I can't cope with (partly why I'm getting a Z10). So I was just wondering what it's like on the z10 otherwise ill cancel my order and get an iPhone 5 as the life on those were much better!

    Cheers everyone!

    Batteries are really cheap. Grab a new one here on crackberry's site. End the madness.

    Or get a BB10 phone.

    2-3 hours sounds a bit quick, even for a 9900?

    as far as i know, with moderate use, the Z10 will last a day.

    It can last 8 hours with continuous video playback, which is a battery drainer so it shouldnt go down in a few hours

    Something is wrong if you are getting 2-3 hours on any smartphone...

    should get more then 2-3 hours though. people say with the right management they can make their 9900's last a day.
    you may be better off heading to the 9900 forums and seeing what they say they get

    For some reason mine came with the NFC antenna on by default. Suggest turning this off for a true battery life benchmark.

    There was Ars Technica test on the Z10 battery. Under similar test conditions the iphone lasted 8 hours and 55 minutes. The Z10 lasted 8 and 22 minutes. The review is right here:

    1230. It's listed right on the battery. 2-3 hours is not anywhere near normal. I don't know how you could get a drain rate of 40% without a hardware defect of some sort. Be it battery or phone.
    Every night I stream music from 9900 to PB with bridge. Always leave all connections on. I get 6 hours every time.

    Yesterday you had a Z10. Today you want to get one.

    Something stinks.

    Hey I had the same issue... I found out by searching that the Z10 is synching a lot of stuff in the background like your emails, texts, bbm contacts... probably learning the words you type for your keyboard (hopefully)... so the first day it lasted only 4 hours... second day almost the whole day... today since im snowed in im gonna destroy my data and the battery... lets see if it performs betters

    My Bold 9900 lasted 2 days...my new Z10 lasts a day with average use. The day I got it, the battery was at about 30%. I played with it a lot, let it die (in about an hour). Fully charged it overnight, from 6:00 am to 6:00 pm it was low and that was still downloading apps, BBM, browser etc. Yesterday, fully charged at 6:00 am, average use and it lasted until 9:00 pm when I put it back on the charger.
