    Default Battery consumption question...

    What is the normal % range for PIM Services battery consumption when in Device Manager? I've been having some serious battery drain ever since the 10.2.1.2126 update, and noticed yesterday PIM Services was at 80%.

    Not sure why this is so high, and I have nothing to benchmark it against.

    You have to remember that it's a percentage of your total usage. So... if you have many busy accounts but only briefly turn your screen to check them (and don't do hours of CrackBerry, video, Internet viewing) then such services will consume most of your power, although you shouldn't see as much overall battery drain as a more display-heavy user.

    I guess the only way to know is... how long does your battery last?

    I have usually a consuption between 4 to 7% in 24 hours of usage due to PIM service, but I also had serious problems with that on various OS versions. I always found the cause as one of my accounts not connecting (so the OS tried to connect continously) or when I was in a low signal zone, so the phone didn't manage to receive enough data for Gmail contacts for example. I resolved restarting device once or twice, and then it was fine.

    Take phone off charge at 7am by 7pm I still have 40-45% left!!

    5 email accounts, one Gmail, 2 Hotmail, 2 IMAP accounts all set for push email. Constant BBM, WA, 20 calls a day averaging 80minutes, 30-40 SMS, BBM Voice approx hour, LTE turned on! CB App hours browsing and replying to forums. Use browser for 20-30mins for searching. Data monitor and battery guru always running everything else shut down. Brightness set to 40%

    Battery life is truly amazing, my z10 lasted 4-5 hours before needing a charge.
