    Hi passport owners, how was you battery life while in use? my passport got hot on the right side while in use. Im using it for browsing and bbm and a couple of text. and it goes hot on the right side and drains the battery. But when in standby mode the device monitor says i got days of battery left. do i have defective battery?

    Not as good as advertised...I only have it less than a day so maybe it needs to settle.

    Mine now easily last 2 days or more for average usage. During the first week, the battery life was just ok. Maybe it just needs some time to settle. If you have some Android apps installed, better to download Task Manager and Ghost Commander from BlackBerry World to manage them.

    It needs a day or two to index everything. I am averaging 1.75 to just over 2 days for medium usage. Between 22 and 36 hours heavy usage.

    Loving the battery life

    New users should wait a week before sappreciating what your battery life might be like. Every new os update will cause the same thing and you need to be patient while it reindexes everything.

    I've had it over a month, done a security wipe, use it moderately and I get from 7am to about 10-11pm so not what everyone boasts about, I've had it for about a month or so now.

    I am going to give it a week or so. Trying to get used to the size as well. So far the most interesting smartphone I have ever seen!

    Currently 9 hours off the charger and at 74% remaining. 'Monitor estimates that I have another fifteen hours remaining, but that's not accurate. It'll still be above 50% by the time I put it on the charger tonight.

    My device monitor currently gives me an average battery runtime of 3 days and 8 hours. I wouldn't call myself a heavy user though. But it's nice to know that you can easily go 3-4 days without any need to recharge

    I have no problems with my battery. I am still getting close to two days on it. But if use Android apps the battery does suffer immensely. If you stick to the BlackBerry apps you can run very well on just one charge for two days.

    Epic battery life but depends on how much you use the device. Like anyone would expect.

    Consider me a retro. Yes LTE is great for latency, bandwidth, and so on, so forth. But really, for getting push notifications and emails? For that reason alone, I've throttled my speed down to 4G (HSPA). The result? Off the charger 7am on Monday. Finally down to 5%. The kicker....it's noon PST on Thursday; 3.5 days of push emails from 4 accounts and my typical usage! I can live with the latency.

    Give it a try. Do you REALLY need LTE?

    I'm getting about 15 hours of moderate use.
    Something I noticed, I've had brightness at half. I've brough it down to zero and will report back.

    Wow some of you are getting really long battery life. I can't say the same, I get a day (sometimes) so far and that's with heavy use.

    I get from 6 am to about 7 PM before the 10% light starts blinking. About 2 hrs longer than my Z30. And God only knows how much longer than my z10. I got 4 coworkers and they can make it all day with there's easily.

    I am a Jekyll and Hyde user. During the day, I use it for email (blend), calls, texts and the occaisional web at lunch. When I get home, I email/browse/play games a lot. I used to use a laptop, not anymore. I normally go from 6am till midnight no problem. The first 12 hours (till I get home from work) barely put a scratch in the battery (80+% left). I can get it down to about 20%ish with continuous use. You really can't run this thing down in the course of a day. My average is (suprisingly) 30 hours according to device monitor - which is exactly what BB quote! I really don't worry about the battery at all.

    I used the crap out of it this weekend, especially with the bs Google play services loading. Maybe 9 hrs with heavy work. Seems better today under similar stress. No way I could get 2 days, unless the charger is plugged in.
