    Any L-ion battery takes a number of discharge/full charge cycles to reach optimum performance. But after a week or so you should be getting more than 6 hrs of average use. Take it back.

    BTW OP, a little overly dramatic thread title don't you think?
    If I agreed with you we'd both be wrong.

    Right now, i've run through 2 full charge cycles only, but this is bad, my iphone 5 had better battery life than this.

    Maybe i should wait till a few more battery charge cycles.
    As of now, i like the phone & its flow of things, but the battery life sucks !
    Try a couple of battery pulls/reboots as well.

    This is a conversation I had with my brother when he had the Galaxy Nexus. He raved about how intuitive, advanced, and powerful his phone was, which stacked up very nice on paper, but
    reality was that he had to turn off LTE, 3G, GPS, WiFi, NFC, Screen brightness, email push/fetch intervals just to make it through half a day.

    He often made excuses that he uses the phone a lot, or he didn't charge it all the way or whatever, but reality to me was that he didn't see that he was just putting up with it for the sake of being a big Android fan.

    He had to enable GPS whenever he wanted to use maps or weather. He had to manually turn wifi on and off, LTE? never used it with the excuse that we lived in a poor coverage area (10 miles from new york city) When ever he wanted to show me something on the screen, I had to wait for him to turn the brightness up so that I can see anything. with his phone usually dead by 6PM if he didn't charge it again at noon, he started to only use it sparingly to conserve the life. I'm sorry, but that is not intuitive, nor practical. It's foolish to accept that. He seems to have solve his issue by switching to a SG3....

    Don't take this is a troll or hater post, but instead as a "hey don't put up with any B.S from your phone company." because believe me many smart phones can make it through the day.


    Like many I'm hoping for Q10 to have most of the issues/apps concerns worked out by launch in the U.S.
    I'm hearing that after a day or two it's fine. They probably just saying that turn it off for a day or two at the beginning so you don't make it jump off a buildings. ;P

    The 1st world problem, meme/paradigm is a bunch of bs. 1st of all what is first and third world? Secondly, so because you pay for something you shouldn't expect it to work properly?

    Thirdly, many in the '1st world' are laying down their lives harder than anyone in the third world for the revolution.

    BB and any other communication device is a catalyst for change, and a needed tool for most if not all people esp. in a 'modern' urban setting.

    So no, this is just a 'problem'. It's about merit, f the who privlege vs who bs because all that is designed to do is to keep you from doing what's right.

    For example, food for people that's right. Idc about the 'white man privelge' cuz 'his woman' .

    Or other stuff.

    This is your first world problem:

    Hey OP I've had mine since the Jan 30th.

    *turn off "Allow gestures when locked" feature* I'm telling you. ;p

    It will be found tapping the display section in settings.

    Just do it. For me this is pretty bad bug. Should be welcome change.

    CRITICAL charge using the plug that came with the Z10 and not a USB or other charging cable. Made all the difference for me.
    ==========================================
    - Avid fan of BB 9700 and 9850 - the 5mp camera addition made life so much easier (even though it was fairly crap!). Waited a long time for a Q10, including being 5 months past my 'upgrade' date from the carrier - lost my nerve and got the Z10 1st Feb 2013. Probably switching back to a 9900 while I wait for OS fixes/upgrades. Proud Londoner (that's in the UK, guys!)

    Question.
    Some people are saying "take it back, its a dud". Can just replace the battery instead of whole phone?
    The phone works great, batterry not so great. I am trying all the above mentioned steps. I even had a good chat with Telus technical support today.
    He pretty much said up what you guys have said.

    You could buy a backup battery.

    the battery is awful!!! So bad that I have asked my phone rep to take the phone back and replace it with an iphone, the phone has died consistently by 1pm everyday from being on charge over night with not much usage. I really wanted to like the Z10 and the BB 10 platform but its a failure. I am so disappointed. I have had all my work collegues taking the mickey out of me for days regarding the issues I have over the phone. the emails would not work, the contacts did not transfer, only after I found someone suggest bluetooth did I get my contacts sorted. Its got some good features but it doesn't work properly.

    Nothing works properly if you don't know how to work it. I'll bet you 1,000 it DOES work. A poor workman always blames his tools etc etc

    Default Z10 Battery Is a Disaster!

    In Indonesia, even plain jane 3G is stability challenge from my last visit there just a month ago. Battery on my Torch that could usually last a day without a problem here in the states went down FAST there due to yo-yo signal. I would suggest a good portable battery bank and/or spare battery to bring along. Only very basic 2G or worse feature phones can survive there.

    I really wish someone would create a good power use analysis app for BlackBerry 10. These competing threads of "The battery is a disaster" vs "No it's not - you're a fool! I have great battery life" are disorienting.

    There are clearly such a varying mix of experiences with battery on Z10 that a firmer diagnosis of what causes good/bad battery life on the thing is really needed.
    ------------------------------------
    I like how BlackBerry 10 is evolving, but when are they going to fix BlackBerry Link for Mac?

    The fact that it doesn't reliably do what it's supposed to do ... most of the time ... is utterly appalling. The only consistency is the "Music not copied to Z10 message"

    Battery life for me is better than my 9900 and about on par with my 9790. In other words, I can easily get a full working day's worth of use out of my Z10. Sorry I don't have time to read through all the posts as I'm already late for work but have you tried closing some of the active tiles? When I first got my phone I had all 8 running just because I could. I now only run 2 or 3 at any one time, that's really all I need and I noticed a big improvement in battery life, going up from about 10 hours to a full working day and beyond.

    Welcome to the world of super phones. Dual core or higher CPU's and LTE = lousy battery life either carry extra battery with you if your a heavy user or charge at every opportunity. With my 9810 was lucky to get ten hours use before charging my Z10 gives me eight so over all not to bad considering the tech upgrade.

    I just found out I cannot turn off LTE on mine which sucks. I did a complete wipe, completely drained it till it died, charged it up and left it sitting on table last night. Woke up this morning and it was at 95% after about 6 hours which good. I will leave it sitting there not setup all day and check the status when I get home today. After that I'll start adding apps and monitor battery use.

    I must remember to try turning off the allowing swipe when locked feature as well. Will fool with it for the rest of the week then decide whether it is as pathetic as it seems initially or not. My 9930 lasts almost 2 days on a charge with normal use. I'm willing to accept 1 full day of normal use on a full touchscreen BB, nothing else.

    if you mean putting a custom ROM/Kernel.. not everyone wants to root their phones!

    the S3 battery life was not BAD but it's definitely not as good as my Z10.
