    Try resetting it. Usually works for me on the m9.

    Clearly either your unit is defective or your charger is not OEM.

    I used the charger that came in the box. Did a couple reboots. Haven't tried an actual reset. Didn't think a brand new phone should need that. Since I got it a full battery has lasted about 5hrs under normal use for me, which is pretty heavy. Yesterday I got 10hrs out of it but didn't use it much. It also gets really hot. I expected that with heavy use coming from a Z10. Was surprised this morning when it was super hot just coming off the charger.

    Sounds like it's still constantly syncing something. And it should't be after all this time. Try deleting the email addresses and reentering them.

    Download this app from the Play Store. It tells you what is eating up your battery and how to optimize your settings. I am getting good battery life. I come from Android, so I am familiar with how to optimize it to get peak performance. This app should help you out:

    Do a factory reset. 'didn't think that a brand new phone should need that'
    It was brand new before you started touching it. It's not brand new once you've used it and obviously any device can encounter bugs at any moment in time.

    You're wasting your time here, it's obviously a problem. Factory reset the phone if reboots don't help and you can't troubleshoot whatever is using your battery.

    I'm syncing 8 gmail accounts once an hour in the hub.
    I streamed ESPN app on ATT network during my lunch hour for 45 minutes.

    People with 10 minute batteries have a problem, and it's not normal. Please bring the phone back and get another one!!

    I had the same over the weekend. Come to find out I was syncing a bunch of hoopla in the Gmail app and the hub. Factory reset, added my email accounts again and didn't do the transfer from my Passport.

    I made it through the day with about 40% battery. Still home browsing, emailing, tweeting, BBM'n and I'm at 29%.

    A few days of testing reveals streaming audio drains the battery much slower than using Crackberry and sending/receiving messages. But the battery still lasts all day and most of the evening.

    That's weird. Mine charges in no time. I have had mine going today, emailing, texting, BBMing, Surfing, Taking photos, videos, wifi, bluetooth, etc. and it is at 38% after 12 hours. I do not think that is too bad.

    One thing I noticed, coming from BB10, the android has way too many notifications. Good God! I spent hours trying to disable all different notification from every app in the settings.

    Try that first. Turn of all the unnecessary notifications and turn off vibrate with notifications except for the very important accounts.

    I downloaded that app. It identified "blackberry services" as the process draining the battery and generating the heat. I'm with ATT. Nothing syncing. Nothing running in the background. Solid connection to mobile network and wifi.

    Yesterday I put it through its paces. BBMing, texting, emailing, surfing, a few calls, made a couple videos, a few pictures and from 645am till when I put it on charger at 1110pm it was at 14%. I think a few more tweaks and 22.5 hours isn't far off.

    Of course. What drains the battery first and foremost on all phones, even on bb10, is the display.

    Audio streaming is peanuts.

    Video streaming (display again) is the way to test how good your phone and your battery are.

    Just try livestreaming TV for 6 hours and mirror it to a large screen display. Let's see if you have any battery left.

    Or try doing a two-three 2-hour long lecture presentations with slides in powerpoint per day on a big screen, as I use my Passport.

    Let's see how android phones, including the Priv, or the iphone, hold up to that use scenario.

    If you use Google now cards it will suck up your battery badly. This happens in every android phone.
