    It's an android phone. There's always something running in the background.

    Did you update all your apps in the playstore? Also is your media card from your old bb10 device? If so. Get another newer fast writing card for your phone. This phones constantly tries to reminder your card making it work overtime.

    Definitely sounds like a bad battery. Those things happen. Any chance you could post up your model number, carrier and approximate location?

    Hopefully it's a one off and not a bad batch.

    Out of curiosity OP have you taken a look at the signal you are getting on your phone? My battery is struggling and it seems to be because of the fact that I can't lock on to a signal and it keeps jumping back and forth between LTE and 4G (Non LTE). Yours might have the same problem.

    If you experience it again I bet it's just something with the software being updated. I have to admit the battery isn't that great. Maybe because I been playing w it a lot.

    Tweak settings! Turn down brightness and adaptive brightness (under Display). Set emails to 'never sync' but 'push'. Turn off location settings (even weather apps can function with a postal code).

    My Priv was running hot and draining steadily. These changes I made mean night and day.

    I read a couple of articles online, concerned with my battery issues. There is a wealth of articles, even more thorough than the guidelines I have provided.

    You shouldn't need to do all that just to get decent battery life - could be something wrong with the battery because I've been using mine at 75% brightness and playing with it constantly and the battery life seems to be holding up well. Also, it seems to be getting better each day.

    Could be, but I haven't had any issues since. I also don't find myself missing any of the things I've shut off, thankfully. It's actually a lot more in line with my Q10's settings. I could experiment and see if it was merely an issue of the device needing to settle...
