    Well after unplugging my KEYone at 6am here's a screenshot of my battery use. It's been 14 hours off charge, 5 1/2 hours of SOT and I'm still at 49%. That's like having the phone in my hand for an 8 hour work day and never having the screen go dark and then I'd still have a couple of hours of SOT after work!

    Did texting, Facebook, BBM, took about 10 photos, played about 3 hours of light gaming (spot the difference and cribbage), had a 5 minute video call, transferred a file to a friend. Now sitting in the Gaze-Bo and just asked my wife if she wants my power bank...

    I am an avid user and a BlackBerry user since '08. I've bought every single BlackBerry handset since my first BlackBerry Curve 8830. The battery life on my K1 is truly insane. I'm an "overnight" charger and for the first time ever, I can charge my phone every 48 hours easily.

    Took a recent trip to Hawaii (6 flights total) and it was awesome watching people stepping off the planes looking for charging ports.

    The 22% screen use is proof enough! And I wouldn't doubt it, the KEYone is battery efficient!

    Yesterday I got 9 hours of SOT on a 18 hour charge with 10% left. Pretty damn impressive I'd say.

    What's your SOT? My personal record is 24 hours of battery life with 8 hours of SOT

    I'm sitting at 18% at 21:45h and I've had a fairly heavy day of use. I basically run all of my communications for my business from my phone. There might be days where I'm ducking wind, battery wise.

    Glad to see that you got it all sorted out! Remember last month when you were wondering how we were getting more than 5 hours of SOT. What did you fix or change to finally get great battery performance?

    My current record is 4 days with 9 hours of screen on time and I'm on track to repeat it again this week.

    Great. You have all the time of staring your phone just to get the standby time of your device.

    If that's the way he/she uses their phone then kudos on the battery life!

    Basically just using the phone more, lol. My issue was with the phone idle (standby) draining a lot of battery. It still does, albeit maybe a bit less since I've changed some app permissions and such. But basically, I just had to change the way I use the phone... In the past I've been careful about using my phones too much in order for the battery to last, but with this one it's like the other way around, lol, and I love it

    That's sounds unreal to me... do you have a screenshot to prove it?

    I suppose of those 4 days, about 32 hours were "standby" because I was sleeping. So ~2.5 days of use with 9 hours of onscreen time before I put it back on the charger.

    Right now, my phone has been off the charger for48 hours and shows 4 days left but that's just a prediction, it'll probably only be 2 days till dead.

    I took this a few days ago. This was when I had 9 hours of OST. My VPN took 15% of the battery during that period since I run it 24/7.

    You can see I put it on my computer twice while transferring files which bumped it up a bit. If you follow the slope down from the bottom of the first bump, you can see it still would have had 96 hours before completely dead rather than a projected ~115 hours.

    Screen on Auto Brightness, wifi and 4g radios on. VPN running 24/7. Location Services off.

    Yep. It's incredible. The same useage style on my PP would avg a 35ish hour battery life.

    That's great battery life. But turning off location services is a huge battery saver on any phone.

    I don't ever get that kind of battery life on my K1. The biggest battery drainer is using it as an actual phone and making calls. I do mine in my car over bluetooth throughout the day and it sucks the battery dry.

    I think everyone definition of a heavy user is different. I am a "Heavy User" .

    10 hours is not an issue

    But to ask, do any of your other phones perform better with regards to battery life doing the same tasks?
