    Weve received the full spec sheet for the BlackBerry Z10 L-Series. More specifically for the GSM variants. A lot of it is already known, and has been speculated nearly spot-on. However, one thing that was left out was its battery life.
    The BlackBerry Z10 L-Series will feature an L-S1 battery. This is the same battery used in the BlackBerry Dev Alpha B (essentially a London in a different shell). The L-S1 battery is 1,800mAh. Heres the details on battery life:

    GSM Talk Time: 8 hrs, GSM Standby Time: 305 hrs
    UMTS Talk Time: 10 hrs, UMTS Standby Time: 285 hrs
    Audio Playback: 60 hrs, Video Playback: 10 hrs
    To put that into perspective, the BlackBerry 10 L-Series has nearly the exact same battery life as the iPhone 5. It also beats the Samsung Galaxy S3 and HTC One X

    I'd be happy with that.

    With the removable back, perhaps RIM, or some third party, will make a tasteful "backpack" battery that will extend the battery life beyond the default specs, for those of us that don't mind a few more mm of thickness...

    I'm pretty sure the S3 has a 2100 mAh and the One-X has an 1800, unless there are some different models with other specs. Either way, I think the Z10 and the QNX platform will do just fine with the 1800.

    So better battery life than a 9900 then?

    When he says it is better than the S3, he is talking about how long the battery can be used doing those features. Yes the S3 battery could be 2100 mAh but that doesn't mean it will last longer. If the OS is a battery hog then the battery will drain faster. If the tests are true that could mean that BB has optimized the OS to make sure it isn't a battery hog,

    Battery life != battery mAh rating. You can have all the mAh in the world, but it'll be useless if the hardware and software are inefficient. The OP is referring specifically to the battery life ratings listed in his post.

    Definitely better than the 9900.

    The comparison with the HTC and Samsung is interesting because they both have bigger screens, using a Samsung SGS2, I can tell you that the screen pulls the most as it relates to battery. Against the Apple which has a smaller screen, I believe they had to do some pretty neat optimizing to get this pulled off. But then again, lets' not forget, RIM did buy a company that does battery optimization.

    All things considered, I believe if this holds true, it will be good.

    I love that more and more info is leaking but personally, I feel that they should let me get my hands on a device for a few weeks and than I can update everyone with my results. ** Does anyone ever notice that when a new phone is going to be released soon that the phone they currently have starts to act up? My 9930 never had an issue until they started talking bout 1/31/2013. My media card is magically not being read at times and my phone lags, the internet doesn't work even though i have service at times....just weird. Sort of makes me feel that they "allow" these issues to occur so I get pissed off enough to buy a new phone....that i want anyway.**

    Again, battery life doesn't equal mAh. I'm asking will this phone last longer on a battery charge than my 9900 does, assuming I perform the same tasks on both?

    The stats in terms of standby, talk time, and music time are very similar, according to this article. Hopefully it isn't any worse than the 9900 anyway...

    And unlike our iPhone friends, we'll just pop a spare battery in when the wheels finally do fall off!

    Touche' ! Great point....

    Actually, feedback from iPhone 5 owners have a pretty common beef about their battery life being a source of disappointment. Personally, if I get 1.5 - 2.0 days of heavy usage from one charge, I'm good with that. Most people (like myself) charge nightly anyway so anything more than a day is a bonus.
