    I just got a classic from a Z30 and is this the normal usage for the phone? I unplugged at 8 AM and now I'm at 27% at 9PM. Is something wrong or do I just have to get used to this bad battery?

    That sounds about normal.
    I get around 23hours per charge.

    How many hours did you get out of your Z30?

    Yup. I'm going through the same thing, I was spoiled with a two day and a half efficiency from the Z30. I couldn't believe how fast the phone was dying when I was just getting it setup.

    But I'm not a heavy user anyway, and I use the Playbook charger so it doesn't take forever to get charged back up. Well worth it for getting the beloved trackpad back.

    Saludos.

    I have only had the phone a week but I am getting similar battery stats. My building at work is a signal vampire -- so even on work days (where I am in front of my cpu all day) I'm needing to charge every night.

    I am pretty happy with this battery life. It lasts longer than my Q10 and maybe a little longer than my iphone 6. My only wish is that they would have kept the removable battery.

    I don't know how much I could get with my Z30 but I know that at the end of the day I had at least 60% left. And on a bad day I would have around 40% left.

    Do you charge your phone every night?

    It can go either way. If I'm murdering the phone, it'll last me about a day. If it's slow, I can stretch to a day and half, maybe two days.

    Did you just get the phone? System seems really high.

    Same with me. I'm thinking that your device is still polling and settling. That should go away in a couple of days. I've had mine for about a week and I can push it much farther than a day depending on my usage.

    Had my device roughly for a year now and my battery starts to get VERY weak. First days I had it I ended my day with about 45% remaining. Now I'm down to 20% at 6:30 pm and started my day at 7am. Don't think this is normal. Do you think my battery is already dying?

    This is what I got today --- I'm starting to settle in with normal use now. For the first week I was setting things up and just on my phone more than usual. I think this battery will be good for my under normal circumstances.

    Don't think this is normal....i had mine since over a year and it is not that bad. On a normal day...with heavy use in the evening I end up with around 30% at midnight.

    That's battery today:

    I wonder what version OS you're using. I downgraded from 2876 to 2813 and that did the trick on my Classic. Even my Passport which I'm using now has better battery with 6 emails syncing, 6 android apps frequently used, along with texting, calling and a lot of note-taking. It's hard to kill the phone now after downgrading cause someone suggested by killing the phone and charge it to 100 for 3x can calibrate the battery. Doesn't hurt to try, just got my passport less than 2 weeks ago.
