    Took my phone off the charger at 7am Saturday morning. After a day and a half of texts, phone calls, checking Instagram (by the way a reset got rid of the back bar on the bottom of the screen), posting on CB and other assorted browsing etc. My phone is currently at 27%. Oh yeah not to mention I keep my Q10 on vibrate. I could only imagine how much more it would last if BBRY didn't take away my beautiful dark theme :-(

    Sorry i'm not currently using any battery graph apps :-( but i guess it takes a few days for the OS to settle in before the battery life kicks in. I also noticed it took a little longer on my last charge to fully charge than before. Next time i charge i'll take some screen shots throughout the 36hrs.

    Lol no BS. I wish I was using a battery app so I could've kept track but I honestly wasn't expecting this especially after the dark theme has been removed.

    Dark theme only saves a little bit of power, turn down brightness all the way on Q10, and get way better battery life

    Q10's have way better battery life than Z10's. They go a good 70% further on a single charge over the Z10. Much larger battery and much smaller screen. Current required to run a Q10 is substantially less than a Z10, so 36 hours is not surprising. My CFO has a Q10 and he goes a lot further than I do on my Z10. If the Q10 could do in a browser what a Z10 could, I'd switch in a heartbeat, but it can't.

    After reading many battery life threads, I came to the conclusion that people getting 24hrs plus were not using the Z10.

    Your explanation makes sense.

    Now if I could get my Z10 to 12-14 hours, like I get on 10.1.0.4xxx, I could live with that.

    I get like... 4 hours of usage on my Z with. 1047.

    That is constant usage, maybe 8 hours with regular usage.

    I've already reinstalled and wiped 2 or 3 times.

    Just got unlucky, hopefully next build will be better

    I see no difference between this and other builds - even 10.1. I get 24 hours with regular usage.

    Well, depends, I bet I can get the same hours If I don't sync mail/social feeds + edge only (or WiFi only without mobile network)

    What are your settings?

    I believe you. I used to get more than 24 hours on z10 which had lesser battery. And that was on early 10.1.

    Yes I do. I send/receive about 50-75 texts a day, spend about 2 hours on the phone, check the Web, IG and CB throughout the day, not to mention my phone set to vibrate. Like I said I was shocked to see my battery lasting so long especially since it only lasted 5-6 hrs my 1st day running 1047 plus I only got 12-15 hrs tops on 10.1
