    I was having issues with text messages not working on the 10.1 MR so I decided to install the latest 10.2 leak. The install went smooth text messages are working but now my battery life is less than 6 hours with hardly any use. Last night pulled it off the charger at 10:30 with a full charge and when I got up the this morning 6:00 am it was completely dead (did not use phone once after unplug). I used to get 12-16 hours on previous software we fairly heavy use. Just wondering if anyone else is having the same issue after installing the leak? Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

    Altho' I'd never found this with previous leaks, it's not unusual for the battery to drain very quickly just after installing it. My battery drained in 5 hours, and overnight in the first 24/48hrs after 10.2 going on, but it does settle down and get better. It's now back to where it was on 10.1 for me (ie: still useless, but not dead in 5).

    The settling in period takes a while, especially if you have contacts linked to your email accounts. Those load in the background the whoel time until its done. I would expect it to be better today. if the problem continues, i would reload it. make sure you have the right radio! Loading anything on my phone thats not stl4 specific kills my battery.

    I installed the leak on Friday afternoon. So it has been on for a couple of days Saturday battery lasted 8 hours with very little use. Sunday during the day battery was dead in about 7 hours with very little use.

    On my phone, the first 24 hours after install was bad. Then it settled down to discharging at about 5% per hour. With minimum use, the battery can go for almost 24 hours; with heavy use, maybe 8-10.

    Phone is on charger now I am in the office today so it will get very little use. Maybe the odd text message so once fully charged I will see if things improve and report back.

    My Z10 battery life improved a bit, but it tends to operate a little warmer for some reason. I have had .1047 for almost a week now.

    Im using the same leak an I can go from about 6 am to about 10 or 11 pm and still have some juice left with light usage. it is possible you have an app that is causing this. try resetting the phone and see if it improves

    I do have a couple side loaded android apps. These were installed previous as well. Would an app just being installed and not being used would that cause excessive battery drain?
