    I can't seem to stop it draining fast. Is it an Android thing?
    What do I need to do?

    I would give it time. My battery hasn't been great either. Hopefully with a little time it will improve.

    Check the battery monitor to see what's draining it.

    If you added accounts to BlackBerry Hub, make sure that the account settings are correct. Incorrect sync settings can cause the device to get a bit warm and cause higher battery drain.

    What are "correct" sync settings?

    Better yet how do I delete an account and start over. Can't even do that, I realize everything BlackBerry if deleted needs to reactivated in Play Store.

    Please be patient with battery life on a new Android device. Especially with a totally new platform like the Priv. It's calling home a lot.

    New to Blackberry, but my other cellphones (HTC, Samsung) required a few days to acclimatize the battery. That, and the first few days usually have a lot more action in them (app installation/updates, tinkering, tweaking, sending all your GPS coordinates to Google [I kid]). Give it 48 hours and see if battery smooths over.

    Let everything settle in, especially if you have email sync set forever. Also the phone need to index

    I turned off sync on every e-mail. Times does that ever suck the battery. That needs to be defaulted to off.

    Make sure you install all the updates and then give it some time, it will be ok.
