    See picture below-- click on icon in red circle, and that will bring up a dialog box to "Insert Image"-- just make sure you in the From Computer tab and "Choose File" to search your computer, select your pic, and then you will come back to the dialog box. Then just click "Uploade Image" and you're all set!

    How are you all getting such great life from your batteries. Mine discharges quicker than my iPhone 5c which I use for calls and apps etc. The q10 mainly sits on the desk receiving emails. Is there a setting I'm missing somewhere?

    This is all garble in my experience.

    Yes! I have Z10 but let's be realistic.

    This kind of battery life doesn't exist on any used device. Regardless of OS


    Use has got to be the factor here.


    If I don't use my Z10 for an hour I also have 18 hours of battery life even at 30%

    No one is arguing it ISN'T about usage patterns. However, if you look at my last post in the experiment, I went 60+ HOURS between charges-that is long even if you put the phone down AND NEVER TOUCH IT! But I did use it-- if you follow the experiment, going to brunch on Sunday (which meant texting stragglers, phoning people who got lost) and taking screen shots and posting them. I also qualified EVERYWHERE that I only use the phone for communications and some pictures. (Though I did complain about a friend in France who kept sending me links and videos during the experiment!).

    In basketball (appropriate during March Madness) folks always say, "ball don't lie."

    "The Display Monitor don't lie."

    Your experience is valid-- you are probably a very heavy user of the phone-- the Z10 is a machine that screams "USE ME! I am AWESOME TO WATCH VIDEOS AND NETFLIX ON!!! FaceBook WITH ME!!" It is amazing. If I had one, I'd abuse it for what it is.

    But don't doubt people who choose Q10s and then choose to make them battery efficient. There have been many posts likening it to how people drive their cars for gas mileage versus performance/acceleration. If you buy a Prius, don't go drag-racing. And if you buy a Ferrari, don't try to go on one of those gas-sipping sojourns with tepid accelerations, rolling stops, 35-mph cruising speeds, and whatnot.

    Peace.

    I would absolutely agree with you--you are right-- that the phone makes an estimate of time left based upon the past hour's usage-- you just proved it. And if you kept using it that way (which was To Leave It Alone), you would get 7 hours, pretty much on standby, sleeping, or bedside mode.

    And in your earlier post, with a steep drop from 10:00pm to 10:20pm (which looks like you continued until 10:44pm, you would only get 2 more hours AT THAT RATE. Your display monitors "don't lie."

    On what os version is your q10? Because I have an iphone 5s and the battery from the q10 is much better.

    Q10 is on T-Mobile 10.2.2156.

    But it is one part Software, one part hardware (Q10), one part usage pattern (communications-only/mostly, and lifestyle choice: no random checking when waiting in line or on the subway to look busy-- would rather save battery), and one part soft-hardware-- black backgrounds, dark themes, aim for zero-inbox, etc.)

    Doesn't make me a better or worse blackberry user, a better or worse citizen, a better or worse human being-- I just want a nice battery life and don't want to feel like I did before when I was on iPhones-- like I would walk into people's homes and look for a charger! or the other way around when they come over with an iPhone...

    It is a common issue, which if you think about it, is amazine in our humanity: we all have to worry about being juiced up as much as we worry about being fed-- if not MORE SO!!!!

    Amazing twist of human fate...any given person in a restaurant eating have on their minds at any given moment, a) should I check my phone and b) wonder how long I'll last...

    God Mode? This is how someone over in that Zed10 thread describes how to activate it:

    First you make some Power Ranger poses, then in your loudest, most booming voice say "Z10 God mode activate! ".
    Results may vary.


    They even say over on that thread the Beast Mode is 10.2.666 or something like that! Gasp!

    When I first got the Sprint Q10 in Sept, I'd easily get 3-4 days with light usage, turning it off at night. Now I get 2 days easy, sometimes less if I have lots of web activity. My daughter's iPhone5 gets 7 hours, whatever she does, even during school days. The Apple Store rep says, "What? you didn't know the iPhone5 is supposed to get only 5-7 hours? If we knew, we'd buy something that we wouldn't need backup case batteries, etc (no plugs at school, or after school activities; no car).

    I LOVE that BEAST MODE! Create a new SETTING actually called BEAST MODE, with all options and functionality optimized for maximum battery life. Maybe even slow the processor down, lower display, or whatever else can be tuned to reduce power requirements! Having a SETTING called BEAST MODE would be marketing genius!!! I'm not kidding. When you need to last awhile before the next charge, this could be valuable and quick.

    Great post. Some people have been offended...like we are trying to trick them that there's some cool mode (someone in Z10 thread even gave it the radio of the Beast, 10.2.666, which I guess you'd expect from the "God Mode" thread referring to us keyboard heathens! lol.

    But you point out exactly what beast mode is--it is a power-sipping lifestyle choice. The setting you describe are choices one can make, but BEAST mode as a choice of mode, like a varying notification setting to noisy or not.

    What you propose is awesome--it is akin to laptops having Power Saving or Performance Settings, only those are often buried in Display Settings. Your proposal would put it in Quick Settings, which would be awesome.

    To All Readers:

    Here is my phone as of Sunday Morning--a little more than a week since I did the one time experiment.

    If you have been following-- I plugged in on Tuesday night after 2.5 days on one charge (unplugged last Sunday). If you look at this picture, I unplugged again on Friday morning.

    And Still Have Not Plugged in.

    What is BEAST mode?

    It's only plugging in twice in the span of a week (Tuesday night and Thursday night).

    Display Monitor don't lie.

    For critics who say I must not use my phone, "Please."

    Worth noting--coming from near empty to a full charge on Tuesday night in two hours because I use my Playbook OEM charger for my Q10.

    For the win...

    Admittedly, I plugged in at the office while power remaining was over 90% (you can see it on the playbook Charge)--but not for long and it was just instinctive at the office mindless plugging in--but actually, I was auto-pilot topping off as I had a business trip to Boston and anticipated needing GPS for the cabbie, so it was a warranted-anticipative top-off (see "Q10 Let Me Down I Need to Rant").

    Technically that counts, but effectively, when I plugged in Thursday I had like 58% left so it didn't factor into NOT plugging in (and was a sip, not a full charge.)

    Also, for me experiment was done on Tuesday.

    I only posted this Sunday morning pic and the power charge pic when I realized I had gone a full week on only two FULL charges (and one sippy top off Wed as I had that a business trip to Boston).

    Yes, month old Q10, no extra battery, with the usage pattern described.

    I've taken some "light" abuse accusing me of misleading folks, tricking folks, or whatnot, but hey, it's my experience and showing what's possible..

    It is not a superior or lesser than experience-- it's just a tradeoff of schlepping a charger around or getting somewhere and asking " can I use your charger"-- or living relatively untethered to a charger...but worrying that perhaps you might not make it through the day.

    Just choices, and then making decisions along the way that support your choice...

    It's funny, too, seeing the CB10 drawdown this morning-- I will need to charge at noon at this rate...but that's lots of typing and photo-posting et cetera. And have had several such sessions this week...(for the doubters saying i'm leaving my phone unused and untouched...
