    Am I the the only one that have seen his battery life go down the drain since upgrading to 10.3+?

    I've been using 10.3+ for more than a year, I started with the red accents OS on my Z10 and upgraded as soon as an autoloader was available for the z30.

    At first, I loved the OS, and I still do, but there's one issue I can't seem to get around and it's the battery life.

    I used to get 25-30 hours from my Z30 battery and now I'm at a 14hours average and my usage hasn't changed, actually I did make some changes since I'm trying to use my phone less often.

    I used to have more than 20 android apps, I cut down this number to 6 and these are the most importants for me.

    But for some reasons, my battery is not having as much juice as it use to be.

    And the Amazon store (not the app store one) is using way too much battery, I've never used it, don't even use the Amazon appstore anymore.

    For example, last night, I didn't leave my phone on the charger, I woke up with 44% left (it had 100% when I took the charger out), how the the hell did my phone eat 46% of the battery while doing nothing (with battery saving mode ON!) I'm not even running on LTE anymore because the signal sucks in my basement.

    Seriously, what the heck is going on? Feels like having Z10 all over again.

    By the way, I'm down to 85% after sending two Whatsapp messages, one SMS, browsing Reddit in Motion for 10 minutes and writing this thread, it just doesn't make sense anymore...

    I noticed my battery life was worsening too, so I checked my app permissions. Sure enough, almost every Android app was set to Run When Minimized. I toggled the setting off on almost all of them, and, one day later, I think my battery life is better.

    I had these permissions off for a while now, I also thought that this was the culprit, unfortunately it wasn't for me.

    It may have to do with your phone constantly trying to connect from a poor signal area. Try sleeping somewhere where the signal is strong and you may find that the phones battery will last longer. Worth the try anyway.

    Blackberry Travel was eating mine after upgrade to OS, didn't use it so deleted it and Passport battery is back lasting 2+ days for me, was only a day when BlackBerry travel was always running. Even shutting it off it would restart....weird!

    My LTE signal sucked, so I switched to 4G, I get full bars so I don't think that's the reason. I have bad wifi where I sleep so I turn off wifi before going to bed.
