    Does anyone know if having a dark wallpaper helps the battery at all on the classic? I know it was recommended with the Q10 but I thought I'd ask if it applies to this one as well. Thanks!

    From what I understand a dark screen will use less battery than a bright one.

    The wallpaper will make all of 1hr difference.

    The batteries on these devices are amazing, and does not require a change of wallpaper to help.

    I think the Tinder Android app might be doing it running 15% in the background for some reason

    It's a good bet. Have you tried deleting it? I would, at least for a few days, to see if it makes a big difference. For Tinder to be that high in the battery draw list means that you're either using it a LOT, or it's running processes nearly non-stop.

    Haha well there is a good chance I'm using it a lot too but it was the Android version which could be buggy for BlackBerry. I deleted it and went with Nemory's Dater version. Seems to be helping. I'm a heavy user of a lot of apps. Most people on here say they are getting great battery life but aren't doing nearly the work I'm doing on my device in a day.

    I'm trying out a Classic and last night with the battery charged to about 80%, I set an alarm for 7:30 am. I put the phone in bedside mode. The alarm went off at 7:30 as expected but when o got out of bed an hour later the battery was completely dead. I'm going to try this again later today but wondering if this has happened to anyone else. I slept for about 9 hours btw.

    I've been using my classic since I got it on Thursday last week. I hopped on a plane on Saturday from Canada to the UK. It being new I've spent a lot of time on it trying out things and learning how to use it. I've spent a lot of time on line, on Facebook but not on Skype and using e-mails on 4 accounts. Being with family I'm using the camera a lot, including the panaramic views. I use my itouch for games. The itouch rarely lasts 8 hours from full charge and much less when I play games.

    I find the battery life on the classic so far is great, better than the Z10 was. I look forward to seeing if this continues when I return home to multiple phone calls and texting at work.

    Using my BlackBerry Classic :-)

    Those getting great battery life, do you keep LTE on or have you toggled it off?

    Exactly. Throw in a conference away from power all day followed up by a ball game with clients... extra battery in the pocket was always nice.
