    Hey everyone!

    Bought myself a Blackberry Priv on Tuesday and needing a little help with it.
    Got it all set up and had it running a few days now.
    But he battery drain has been rather insane and I came from an iPhone 6S Plus.

    Today I took it off charge at 8am and by 11am the battery had dropped 20% and I hadn't touched the phone.
    Uninstalled Facebook, Tried a reset, Screen is down low and yet the battery is still draining really quickly.

    Any help would be great!!!

    Hopefully, it will tame down. FB has been a definite battery drainer from what I've read. Open Main Settings and scroll to find Battery and see what else is using your Battery. You can tap some of those items for more information. Some 3rd party apps may provide better detail on battery usage.

    Just taken the Priv off charge at 4:45pm and gonna leave it alone a few hours t see how badly the battery drops, Hoping I don't have to take the phone back as they don't have any others in stock and I'd have to pick another brand

    What does it say under settings? It should show you what the cause is. system/screen/app.

    Seems to be Android OS draining the most battery!
    Not touched the phone at all for 5 hours and it's dropped 6%
    The android OS is showing 3 hours of awake time

    Taken it back to CFW and they swapped it for a new one and gave me a free Blackberry Flip smart case with a little window area on it!!!

    Setting up new phone! Didn't notice on other one as I never put it in case!
    But the lower edges of screen seem to wiggle a tiny bit when you push down
    Doesn't feel like it will break just has a slight give when ya press down CFW said that's how it's meant to be! Is this correct?

    The screen/slider is a moving mechanism. So there will be some movement or play. Too much and some folks report creaking. Actually, a case generally hides it a bit if there is some movement.

    Yeah it's not as bad with case on, no creaking noise at all just a slight push down so it's normal?

    Thanks for the tip. Just got mine also and having battery issues. I checked where you said, FB is definitely causing a drain. Any options to prevent?

    There's at least one FB battery thread. Some folks have just UNinstalled it and relied on using the Browser. Since I don't use FB, I'm not totally up on it but I believe there's mention that using Chrome, you can get Notifications.

    Battery drain is not uncommon in the first week of use as the phone settles from all the updates. Did you do all the updates at once or one at a time? In reading other posts out of the box it is better to update one app at a time. So, I spent 3 days when I got mine letting apps update one at a time before I even put my sim card in. After a couple days my battery usage seemed to level out.
