    Hi guys,
    Which version of the old/more recent offerings is the most stable and has the best battery life (in your opinion)?
    Looking for some comments from users who have been running their 9900 for a few weeks/months on that particular OS.
    Cheers

    Unfortunately, i believe that is too broad of a question. I'm currently using 7.1.0.923. I have found that the battery life for all of the builds are generally the same. I know everybody is going to jump in here, but i find you could put 20 people in a room and they will all have different experiences. There are too many variables (apps used, apps in the background, wifi and non-wifi use, signal strength, 3G or 4G, etc.) What i tell my friends and customers is that you should get a full business day of general use (to about 10-20% battery life) If that's not good enough either have extra batteries or extra chargers.

    do not turn on the battery saving mode. Seems that when I turned it off my phone Bold 9930 will last all day with moderate use verses 6 hours or so with it running.

    Haven't tried 923 yet (can't really be bothered updating anymore) but 861 is very good and in my opinion, the best so far. As another poster mentioned, there are so many variables that make the OP's question difficult to pin down.

    I don't think the battery life has changed significantly since probably the 7.1.0.5** series. The later OS versions have really just fine tuned the user experience and maybe made the phone a bit smoother. You may want to ask your question in the Hybrid forum, as that is where the more active 9900 users seem to be now. I have just moved from the 9900 to the Q10, but was on the last Rogers release, which was one of the 7.1.7** release and it worked well.

    I then tried the 7.1.0.923 for a week and it seemed to work ok, but was was having a problem with phone latching on to a signal after it had lost it. It is probably important to make sure what ever OS you choose works well with your carrier's cell system. Once again, the Hybrid OS forum is the best place to find out which OS version and which radio file will work best for you.

    One of the hybrid os available here on crackberry definitely has been a better deal for me compared to the native os's in terms of battery life.
