    Oh man to go around carrying your phone not having to plug in to a wall with some others and not socializing, what do you do.
    You must feel like a outcast not having to plug in like that.

    That's great for you, but without knowing your usage anyone can claim great battery life on their phone. I've had the Leap for months and the battery is decent at best. Better than the Z10, but worse than the Z30.

    This is meant as a humorous joke. This is not real life battery usage. I'm try to be like #JC when he "complains" about BlackBerry being so good

    I left my Leap alone on purpose to get these results

    Good heavens, man. That's an astounding battery life. Way better than my Q10. Is this on light usage? Moderate? Or just the absolute bare minimum (plane mode, face down+ battery saving mode) ?

    Forgive my typos, I don't look when I type

    He explained above that the battery usage is from not doing anything on the phone.

    My brand new Leap is lasting only 7 hours on standby NO TALK TIME!

    I've checked batt usage and its 30% the OS nothing else comes over 2% so theres no leakage due to a sideloaded app misbehaving.

    I am going to see if I can return it.

    What are the average Batt Lives you other owners are experiencing?

    My average battery life is 1 day 12 hours. With heavy use it goes down to about 12-15 hours. Always gets me through a day. Use it for work all the time (Navigation).

    My only question is, do you even use your phone?!

    My Z30 has, IMO phenomenal battery life in today's smartphone landscape. But even as good as the Z30 battery is, I'm not getting 3+ days out of one charge.

    So what's the deal?

    Look! It's Zedzilla30!

    The Leap idle power usage is very nearly zero. I just got mine set up over the last couple of days so today is my first full day with it. If you enable face down to save power and leave it face down for a while it will hardly use any power at all and will estimate days till empty. Kind of cheating but a nice parlor trick. See my usage chart below. 17.5 hours, 52% remaining 7 hours to empty at my current usage. Pretty good.
