    I'm wondering if anyone can enlighten me. I've been wondering what the difference is between a normal locked state (lock/screen dim button) and a magnetic standby state (induced by blackberry holster). Is the phone going to save more power with a holster than just being locked/dimmed with the button? Or are both states the same in terms of battery conservation?

    What's the difference between these two states, if any?

    Ask far as I know it's just an option to automatically lock device when put in holster instead of being timed to lock

    the difference should be very little. Lock mode does run the screen's digitizer for the swipe-up-to-unlock feature, but the holster closes a magnetic switch. Neither should have a noticeable affect on the the battery.

    Thanks for the responses that's a big help.

    For quite some time now I have been under the impression that the holster locked state was providing additional power saving over the normal lock state and so this has been a factor in which kind of case to get for my new Z30.
