    Do you mean almost 48 hours? Off charge 11:07am on Tuesday, out of charge 9:47pm Wednesday = 34 hours and 40 minutes. Not bad
    My bad! Yes I meant 48. Was trying to stretch it out

    Android apps don't use more battery than regular apps, but many of them are games or map apps which use location services and require that you keep your screen on constantly, and some are data hungry as well. That's the reason they seem to be battery hogs.

    Proof of this is that in all the charts, it isn't the apps that are draining the battery, it's your display (and that's normal, most laptops can't go for 30 hours with the display on either)

    Looks at that insane system drain...

    That's really odd. I get that battery life on my Q10. Why is your stand by and system using so much battery? Have you let it settle?

    I rebooted and now it's back to normal. Who knows.... Phone was getting warm even when mostly idle and I didn't really have any apps running

    It was a bug, you've made the good choice with the restart.

    Some Android apps tend to continue running in the background after closing them. Even after killing off a process they reopen on their own. This affects battery life.

    This is with average usage. Have managed to get 24 hours with heavy usage - Android apps included - on a single charge this first week.

    That won't really make a difference on an LCD screen.
    In this case is worse. Switch everything to light!

    Android apps are a pain when then are running in active frame or full screen. They kill the battery.

    But i noticed that once an app is closed, even if you are still received notifications from the runtime, BlackBerry had done a really good job in minimising battery consumption
