    Default Faster battery drain from with WhatsApp installed

    Is it just me or is WhatsApp causing Z10 battery to drain way faster. I took my phone off the charger at 3.50 pm and its now 11pm and I have only 25% remaining. I was barely on the phone for about 12 minutes. My battery used to last 14hrs since the update but it has reduced drastically. Anyone else experiencing this?

    Did you also do the WhatsApp upgrade that was available?

    Last update seems fixing that issue. I had the same problem and since the last Whatsapp update my mobile works smoothly.

    I am also running 2.9.3741.0 however I am fairly certain my battery life is seriously degraded since installing WhatsApp. On Wednesday night my phone actually drained and shutdown around dinner time, which is unusual however that could be due to accidentally streaming video over bridge (wifi was off on my playbook oops).

    It will take a few more days to be sure, but battery life was exceptional until yesterday and the only change I am aware of is WhatsApp.

    aside from that, the bb10 whatsapp is pretty good I am happy with it just hope its not a battery drain.

    Same with me..battery drain. Uninstall. Most of my personal contacts are on bbm. Those who went to the dark side.. yeah they can use wazzup. And suffer. Haha

    WhatsApp on Android has the same problem. Eats battery.

    Whatsapp has always drained the battery on my 9700, 9780 and 9900, so I expected it on the Z10 as well. But in the end, the benefits for me far outweigh the battery drain, so I've come to accept the fact already.

    It's an app that runs full time. Not a surprise and why I have declined to run anything other than BBM or plain texting.

    HOLD THE PHONE. Bridge still lets you tether to your playbook even in its crippled state. I was rather worried about loosing that ability on BB10

    In the 12 minutes, were you chatting on WhatsApp alot? Were you sending pictures etc?

    I was so excited I was messaging so much on WhatsApp that in an hour, my battery became flat.

    I was using WhatsApp on my Bold 9900 and Samsung Note in the past ... for sure, the battery drained faster when WhatsApp is in use. Close it whenever you don't need it.

    It only seemed to start happening to me after the latest update. Not running it for now, I'll see if that makes an improvement.

    Agreed. I used to go for 14 hours with moderate to heavy usage down to 10%. With what's app (latest version) and light to moderate usage I get 7 hours before I am down to 10%.
