    I found that using an SD card made my system use shoot through the roof ( even when it was formatted properly, it was as if the phone would continue to keep nuking it and reformatting ) and after relieving all efforts to try and rectify my battery problem, taking out the SD card has got me back to 1 percent drain per hour even on 4g. Something to try if you are having some problems and no amount of resetting and killing apps in backgrounds helped. Hopefully this helps some of you out there.

    On a second note, is there a reason the sd card is causing this? is there a fix i haven't seen yet?

    Have you formatted the card in your phone? I have an SD card and it doesn't drain my battery at all....

    i have a couple of times. For now i cant really use an SD card in my phone. Is there a certain brand/size with the q5? im assuming there isnt but i might as well try and cover all the bases.

    I can only suggest trying another card, as my battery life is great with both 16 and 32gb cards on 10.2.1 and 10.3.1.

    It happened to me once, the reason is; blackberry apparently stores some system files in SD cards.
    I remember that I've encountered this problem when I used my old blackberry's SD card in the newer device.
    Hence, I'm guessing the newer blackberry device was continously processing the system files that belonged to the old device.

    The solution is backing up the media files; not every folder in the memory.
    Then format the SD card; and paste your items back in the systematically created folders. Ex (Pictures, documents, etc).
