    Just wanted to know has anyone noticed a difference in battery life since updating from 4.7.1.4 to 4.7.1.53?
    My battery life has significantly dropped since the update! I recently purchased a Seidio 1600mAH battery shortly before the update and I'm not sure if the battery is defective or the update decreased battery life. I seem to go thru about 7% of battery life per hour while using my Tour for email checking, e-book reading etc, nothing too demanding. I'm not playing and games or browsing the web, but by noon I'm down to 60%.
    Looking forwards to everyone's thoughts.
    Thanx,
    Al

    Yeah dude both stock and .42, .53 sucked the sperm out of my blackberry. I have the regular battery though. OS 5.0.0.230 is the best for battery life. imo.

    After they pulled the update and I downgraded back to .40 I'm getting better battery life than I did before on .40 not sure why though.

    No significant difference from the original OS, 4.7.53 and now 5.0. Great battery life on all occasions and am a heavy user.

    Pretty much the same. I have not tried 5.0 yet. If they do not come out with a better battery life os then I'll give the 5.0 a shot.

    Same. But I just got a new Tour, I think it came with the .53 unless it was loaded when I connected my Blackberry to my comp.

    Guys no joke the battery life on 5.0 is so much better and longer.

    I downloaded the .53 when it was still cool, and my battery life seems the same if not better.

    I've only had .230 for 1 day but I noticed NO, zero, nada better battery life than with 4.7. One of the reason I came from a winmo was for better battery life. My wife has a curve and she gets much better battery life. I've had mine for 3 weeks, even had Sprint replace the battery to no avail. I hope it gets better but I'm not holding my breath.

    Same here...I used to have to charge my phone nightly or wake up the next morning w/ a dead phone but since .53 with the same if not more usage I can go about a 1 day 1/2 w/out a charge. This is my first Bberry so that may still not be good but I'm talking HEAVY usage.

    On .53 for a few days now, do about 200 emails a day, maybe an hour of surfing, an hour of talk time and am at 74% after 16 hours. I charge nightly. I was at 58% with .40 with about the same usage. Oh and have tried everything to update to .230, neither loader nor DM sees it.
