    Hey guys I just wanted to ask which battery life is longer the BB Q10 or BB 9900 ?

    now I know the BB Q10 is a bigger battery, but it got double the CPU power + bigger screen + the OS seems to pull more power then OS7

    I just want to know if the Q10 battery will last longer than the BB 9900 battery

    They are marketing the q10 as though it has a better battery, I have the 9900 and I don't have problems with the battery. I will bring my charger with me if I know I will be on campus for longer than 10 hours, but as long as you have a car charger there are no problems.

    I assume q10 to have better battery life.

    Q10 has bigger battery. OLED screen. Black themed (efficiently for an LED screen).

    Z10 battery is way better than the 9900.
    The Q10 will have a bigger battery than the Z

    Not to mention, smaller screen and keyboard gestures are gone due to physical keyboard.

    I predict the Q will last 2-5 days compared to the usual 1 day.

    You can consider Q10 for about 10-16h, depends on what you are doing and network signal strenght.
    I have phone calls per day no more then 1,5h and rest are data (mail, bbm, whatsapp).
    I am not playing any games nor you tube and wifi is always on and 4G.
    Regarding Bold 9900, have latest DoCoMo sw 923 and have one full day.
    I am ont sure you will ever get equal to Bold 9900, regardless of what people say.

    I am really interested to know for sure what's the battery life of the Q10. It could be what seals the deal for me.

    I am surprised to read the Z10 has a better battery life than the 9900.

    I don't think the Z has better battery life than the 9900 at all. Usage wise they seem equal at best. In standby, the 9900 lasts way longer.

    Q10 seems about on par with my old 9700, which is better than the 9900 in battery life. But on standby, the old phones still last much longer.

    Guys, when I had my Bold I charged it 3 times a day with heavy usage.

    Now with my z10 I usually only charge every night on medium to heavy usage.

    As far as standby goes, who actually keeps there phone in Stan by without using it. Who cares!

    Count on 12-16h, depending on a way you will use it, that's what I have.

    I had a 9900 for a year. I'd just get a full 12 hours with heavy use. I have a Z10 now, and the battery life is average, at very best. I've actually bought 2 spares. Last wk, I was out from 8am until about 10.30pm, and by the time I got home, I had 5% left on no.2, so I consider it a wise investment.

    The Q battery is far bigger than the 9900. And bigger than the Z also. Having said that, one of the eternal bonuses of swappable batteries is, for a reasonably small cost, you can have as much power in your pocket as you like. I've lost count of the amount of times my Ms has bragged that her iSheep battery has 40% left when mine has died whilst out, and then she's ended up borrowing mine for a call at 9pm

    A quick update on the battery life:

    Unplugged at 7am
    Usage: BBM, Calls, Emails, Browsing, Twitter, playing around excessively with the phone.
    After 8 hours I'm standing at 60% battery life.
    Wifi: Off
    4G: On

    One word: PHENOMENAL

    Give or take one charge will last 2 days of usage. Hence my predictions above stating the Q will last 2-5 days.

    It all depends on the usage. For e.g last night by the time I reached home (10 pm) it had 25% juice left in it (unplugged at 6 am) with extensive emails and BBM. So yeah 2 days with normal usage is a given.

When I had my 9900 it wouldn't even last me a half day....now I'm using a iphone5 and well everyone knows how ****ty the battery life is on that garbage. Can't wait to pick me up a q10 and actually be able to have a phone last me a day or 2 on a single charge!

    If you look at the "CB Team's Q10 Review" it says that the Q10 has a 2100mAh battery which is 70% bigger than the 9900 (1230mAh). Add this a quite similar screen and better 10OS with Black theme and you will have a good battery life.

    Hope it will help to clarify the situation.

    Cheers from Barcelona! ;-)
