    I just got my blackberry passport from Amazon and the battery life is terrible. It barely lasts 6hrs. I checked the battery usage and at full charge it shows a battery life of 16hrs. Should I return the phone to Amazon? My Z30 had a better battery life.

    ignore what it says it will get and pay more attention to what it actually gets. That is a prediction based on the current usage. If you are only getting 6 hours, that is excessive drain. I think when you first get a phone, the battery needs a few cycles to start behaving, and dont' forget new phones are fiddled with more than ones you are already familiar with. Consider sending it back in a week if you can't get 12 hours plus on it with light usage after a few more cycles I'd say.

    I was told to charge to 100% and then do a hard reboot. Battery has bee awesome since.
    Hard reboot is hold volume up and down at the same time and hold till screen goes black and release
