    Got my phone a week ago and I am draining too quickly for my liking. I tried to turn off the battery saving mode to see if there was a way to use even less of the battery, but to no avail. Anyone know of any tricks?
    Not a trick but do install Taskmaster BB10 app to see what is running in the background.

    I get at least a full day worth of usage out of my Classic with heavy use, including ~1-2 hours of phone calls per day, plenty of text messaging, web browsing, listening to music, etc. Average battery life seems to be about 1 1/2 - 2 days before I really need to throw it on the charger.

    It's worth noting that I don't have my social media accounts connected via the built-in apps but simply use their website counterparts as I prefer to have that stuff separate from the rest of my communications.

    Overall, I'm quite satisfied with the battery life on the Classic, especially given that I felt the battery life on the Q10 was less than stellar.

    I get pretty good battery life even when I'm streaming Spotify. It all goes to hell when I start using the Browser, thing uses so much resources.

    Not too bad on my side. Weird, but the battery life has a lot of inconsistencies.

    Check your device monitor (battery/CPU) and see what's using all that juice. My girlfriend had that same issue on her Z30. Found out that it was a Tetris game that she kept minimized. So I showed her how to turn off "app runs when minimized" and the problem was solved.

    It got better with OS .2582. Medium usage, bluetooth, wifi, 3G only, NFC off, brightness default settings, only a few android apps, 5 mail accounts on push. I used to get to 35% by evening, now i'm around 50% and about 30% with heavy usage.

    Love the phone-im a pretty heavy user. Looks like I'm getting about 6 hours before the battery hits 20% or less. I'm on verizon and the OS. Is 10.3.1.941. It's frustrating-i have to cut off wifi and BT to get that 6 hours too.
    I'm going to check my apps-if ones a resource gobbler it's gone.

    Under heavy usage I am getting approximately 22-24 hours... this includes emails, calls, bbm, texts, and a couple android apps like clash of clans and snap chat

    Thanks for the tips on looking for resource hogging apps-seems my be weather pro app was active when minimized. It was gobbling up a lot of juice. Switched the setting and battery life is mucho better now.
    I'm getting a full day out of the battery now with heavy usage-4G, 10 push email accounts, bright display settings and Tunein radio on nearly all day in the office.
    I loved my zed 10 but this classic is giving me warm and fuzzies in a big way. It's quick, good to grip, great Quality heft and feel too.
