    So far, how's everyone's batteries holding up? One day, two days on a full charge?

    People are generally happy with their Classic batteries, I believe.

    you will get one day of heavy usage. when I have light days I go to sleep with about 40.

    unlikely to make it two days if you are using the phone at all.

    I've found the battery life to be great when I switch to 3G. I can get 2 full days of moderate use. On 4G however, the battery will drain much quicker per hour just idling (but will still last slightly over 24 hours).

    One full day heavy use. 1.5 days medium use. It is a GSM device tho so when Verizon gets CDMA released it likely will be less.

    A full day for me is from 6am to about 10 or 11 and I have no worries about needing a charge. Most times I'm at 25-30% by my end of day.

    That's with 3 email accounts, social media, CB visits, media consumption etc.

    Awesome batter life.

    I use my Classic really heavy. I fb, tweet, insta and a few e-mails account. And browse frequently too. Last me from 7.30 am up to before I go to bed. Good enough for me compare to my previous Z10.

    You've used power savings, and your display battery usage is lower than your system. It means you didn't use your phone that much. :-D Can anyone also post their screen capture of the battery usage?

    Here's another one. My battery saving feature turns on when the battery life hits 20% or when I put the phone on bedtime mode.

    I just started to use my Classic as daily driver and so far so good. 3 email accounts, music, CB, BBM, and of course 2 hours of phone calls took the battery from 90% at 8AM to 25% at midnight.
    Almost forgot, I used the phone to write my homework essay as well.

    Something to note about the display is that it can be very efficient. I have brightness down around 15% and find it very usable even in the sun.

    Can't say the same thing for my Classic. I never survive during weekdays after 5-6 PM. I bought it last week.

    4x email accounts
    3G&4G on
    No Android apps
    Continuous BBM usage
    Some Whatsapp
    50x mails per day in/out

    I had the Passport for one month and switched to Classic for the enhanced functionality of the keyboard and one hand use. I don't play games and always considered with no problem small sized displays, read in the past many books on iPhone 4.

    I still have 15x days to test the Classic, I really wouldn't wanna go back to any other phone (no iPhone 6, no Samsung, no Sony, no One Plus etc.) but the battery drainage kills me. Sundays I have afternoon still more than 75%, but it's just Sundays

    Any advice dear community?

    With very(!) heavy usage (lots of surfing, texting, taking pics, bluetooth connection and watching videos) I get about 10-12 hours.

    With "normal" usage (a bit of everything) I get about 20 hours of battery life.

    With battery saving mode on all the time & light/barely (almost all the time having it in my pocket) usage I get about good 2 days on one charge (maybe even 3 days but I haven't put it to the edge) .

    Overall I'm really, really happy!
