    For anyone running MM (non beta) now on his Priv, how has your battery life changed since updating?

    Would be good to get lots of general feedback from users and, better yet, more detailed information including SOT and any other indicators/measurements anyone wants to submit.

    Screenshots showing battery life would be great, too

    How about this one?

    Phone off the charger at 7am, lightly used as I'm at work and using the workstation. Screen time 11 minutes.

    During Beta1 testing I got 7hrs 15 mins SOT. Beta2 I got just short of 6 hours. BlackBerry mentioned they had to tweak battery life with performance. But I can definitely say doze really does work!

    Cheers.

    Off charger since 7.30am, 3hrs 8mins SOT and now on 36% with 8 hours left. That's about 14.5 hrs so far. And trust me, I've used the phone well. I'm definitely not a light user by any standards.

    The battery is brilliant.

    I'm what most would probably declare as a super heavy user, as well, and am really hoping for some real change out of battery management by MM... hope the reviews and screenshots continue

    People should be reminded to turn off all or most permissions like locations in every app that you can at least live without.
    Also go to settings > google > toggle it all off or mostly off.

    Keep those battery report coming! I'm curious what effect Android M has had for those who had battery issues with 5.1.1.

    I would say your Passport's battery has lost a lot of it's capacity then because my PP SE is still outlasting my Priv by a substantial amount.

    Moreover I adjusted all the permissions and disabled some Google stuff that are not important. My location service is off.

    It bugs me that it doesn't show battery uses what are under 1%... I often have 10% unaccounted for, deleted a ton of apps and it still off... I could understand like 2% to account for all the 0.2% but 10?

    Also I noticed on my phone BlackBerry services has been acting up.. A couple of my email account are syncing every minute on the minute.. Battery usage was average 2-3% a charge but now it's more like 27%. Monthly data usage went from average 60mb to 175mb+ (still 8 days on this cycle too).... Blackberry support only suggestion seems to be formating my phone... but they also ignored 93% of what I wrote them about the issue. So now I have to manually update my emails now and my phone lasts WAY longer, websites load faster and my phone is staying cooler

    My Battery life, on at 4am and still at 30% at 9pm. 30 Phone calls daily, 100 emails, and plenty of browsing.
    Better than the iPhone 6s+, or any of the other 50 phones I have had over the last 8 years. Well done Blackberry!!

    When you guys post please let us know the svt model please, rocking a 004 here and I'm hoping my battery improves ! This is mine on lollypop,

    MM update not yet available yet for my device , so I'm hoping for the best.

    If I get 5 hours SOT from this is consider that quite strong , but from other android phones rocking like your 801 chipsets and the other lower ones, they getting around 8 to 9 SOT which I believe what I was getting with my passport black edition,

    I just think the 808 is flawed and I'm praying my battery pulls better with MM or il have to get rid of my priv and go huwawei mate 8 or s7 edge as they have high endurance ratings!

    Just my 5 cents .

    Mine usually plows through 10% fairly easily with a little bit of use. I'm usually charging the phone 3-4 times a day. pretty poor unfortunately.

    Having gone through the Lollipop to Marshmallow update with my Nexus 7, I remember there were some later builds of Lollipop that had battery life issues, so I wasn't too surprised with the battery life issues with the Priv.

    Your ratio of battery life left to amount of screen on time sure changed from when you had 75% to when the day was over..
