    Why does it do this? I was video chatting for about 8 minutes and not only did it drain my battery about 5% but the phone became really hot.

    It's using your camera for video, WiFi or cell to transfer lots of data, speakers, lots of cpu power and the screen is constantly on.

    As the above poster mentioned it's a power pig.

    5% for 8 min seems normal on any OS. I wouldn't worry too much about it OP.

    Well as a comparison my Passport Silver Edition barely gets warm and doesn't eat as much battery. Is this normal?

    Passport vs Classic... it's like a V8 vs V6 engine... V6 going to work a lot harder to keep up with the V8...

    As mentioned before, you're talking about a phone that's using the internals of the first BB10 phones.

    I would hope that the passport could handle it. As for the classic, five percent with everything that goes into a video call seems worth it.

    Don't worry OP: you won't have this problem often. Because no one uses BBM.
