    Newbie battery question-img_20150428_181556.jpg

    Location, NFC off, 4G on, Wireless on, but I've mostly been on wireless. Seems like the display is taking a lot of battery, but I doubt it will actually last for one more day. I know it's based on previous usage, all I'm saying is that it might last 24 hours without recharging and frequent use, but hardly 36 or 48. Am I doing something wrong, is there a magic button?

    I have Gmail, Facebook, Twitter and Linkedin accounts linked, but to varying synchronization times. My Google contacts don't sync every 5 minutes, but every 24 hours. I maybe have 2 or 3 extra apps that aren't native to BB, but that I don't actually use that often.

    So, is this right or not? Is it an OS issue? I mean I would expect the battery to be down by maybe 30% after 16 hours, not 47%.

    Any thoughts? Thank you

    First and foremost, try performing a reset on your device by holding down the Power/Lock key for 10 seconds until your device restarts and you see the BlackBerry 10 OS loading screen appear (with the BlackBerry logo and progress indicator). This can help clear up temporary information in memory as well as any stuck or misbehaving processes that are running in the background.

    Turn your display brightness down as low as you can (while still being comfortable to read) to help conserve some battery life as well.

    With all of that being said, you are currently running OS 10.3.2.500 on your device which is considered a beta release, and as such you may encounter issues with battery life being less than what you would expect. Since there is no way to downgrade your device back to 10.3.1 you will need to wait until a newer build is released which will hopefully resolve the decline in battery life.

    Based on what that you get this expectation. Using 47% in 16 hours is darn good.
