    It's fine. I usually get a day and a half for light to moderate use. The less Android apps you can run on bb10, the better.

    battery life is not an issue, but battery calibration reliability I have yet to sort out (see my other post).

    I have had five days standby+ with mobile data connected so is better than my Moto X Play (itself has a 3600 mah massive battery).

    In my experience with several Classics, it's pretty Damm terrible, especially when using Android apps.
    The Priv lasts longer lol

    Battery life is fine. You can run android apps and still achieve reasonable battery life. The more you run android apps the higher the usage but if you manage the usage of those apps efficiently, the battery life is acceptable.

    Standby with data active is more than wifi, but still acceptable.

    Turn off run in background for Android apps and check usage in the battery monitor... I run quite a few Android apps such as yandex disk, boost (reddit), podbean, facebook, yalp... never any battery issues... no drain noticed.

    The Classic is a fine device... it looks supreme (weighty and solid with a premium feel) and I love it. Facebook/Twitter notifications are great.

    Still some calibration problems but they seem to be sorted by charging overnight and letting drain completely!

    Great podcast player with plenty of options and Internet radio.... very important for me. Also evernote is super.

    Calibration issue solved after charging overnight and fully draining.... it started cutting out at lower and lower battery levels (40%, 25%, 18% and now 5%) so seems almost resolved each time the battery lasted the same amount of time but the accuracy of the meter was way out.

    Average battery life (WiFi on, 2G mode) around four days with an hour or so of use (screen on) and a few hours calls.
