    Wow, I keep my screen between 15-20%. Check media sharing options (I just turned mine off and it's made a huge difference) and box or Dropbox settings. I have box signed in and hooked into my file manager, but Dropbox seemed to be syncing every hour or so, even with nothing on the cloud. Huge difference making these two changes.

    I keep my screen at 35-40% ... but still i get max 7hrs can you be more specific on how frequently you use your phone.... i max use whatsapp, blackberry world,FB, calls, Emails....!! no games, no songs n no videos....!!
    I do almost everything with it. Play games when am free, listen to songs mostly on way back from work in the evening. Watch videos on YouTube, use BBM mostly than WhatsApp, FB, twitter, instagram.
    However, today I just decided to do site browsing and CB mostly.
    I set the brightness that high because I use a dark screen protector.

    Did you just update the OS on your new Z10? It can take a couple of days to settle and the battery life should improve.

    I think what they might prefer us do is to upgrade to the z30

    I know a bunch of z30 users who will disagree with you on that.

    oh don't get me wrong the z30 has its place... but so does the z10 i don't' want a bigger screen i just want a bigger battery..plain and simple.. i am sure there are others who agree with me.. and people who like the bigger screen..i don't want to carry around a second battery.. that was a fail by blackberry.. put a smaller batter and make a portable charger battery pack for it...but what they failed to realise is that maybe 5 years ago people would have been content with carrying 2 batteries... but not now, people want a single devise with out having to worry if they charged both batteries. i understand there thinking of getting accessories with the devices.. but that was not a good one..

    My performance is the same. This just started the last week for me though and I've had WhatsApp since it was available and never had an issue... Not sure what the heck is going on.

    No problem but you can get higher chargers too. Maintain 5V

    Not sure a dark theme saves power on a Z10. An amoled screen's black is lack of color. To a Z10 screen (LCD), black is just another color.

    Its more than couple of weeks now. The latest update does have some battery drain. I had fantastic battery life with previous version.

    Did you just update the OS on your new Z10? It can take a couple of days to settle and the battery life should improve.

    I do agree with Silversmith... Z10 is perfect in size and formfactor.... why BB wants to spoil experience of a mere perfect device...??

    is it...?? updates should improve performance and minimize power usage rather than sucking up more.... !!! why cant we all raise our voice to BB to release 2500mah battery for Z10...??

    You really need to learn how to contain all of your content into one post instead of spamming.
