    Hey Guys , I've been searching through reviews of the z10 and I've read mix responses about the battery. Can you guys that are heavy users tell me how many hours you get with the z10 and tell between what hours you guys use it.

    Hello. I use about 7000 minutes a month of talk time not counting the other applications. I unplug my phone at 6 in the morning and usually have to put the battery pack on some where between 2&3 in the afternoon. Then in the evening I usually let it charge about an hour to use for CB and play words with friends before bed. I don't consider it to bad compare to my wife and daughters iPhone. I'm running.1925

    Rockin Z10 on 10.2.1.1925

    The first 24-48 hours after installing a leak use more battery than normal. That's because the phone is "settling" in with the new OS (adapting to your typing style, syncing a bunch of different things, etc.) It should hopefully get back to normal or better after.

    As for the original question, it really depends on your usage. If you have a lot of app usage and writing back and forth, it will take a toll on your battery. Most people (including me) are able to get through the work day with mixed use. If price and a bigger screen size aren't a concern, go for the Z30. If you have your heart set out for Z10, get it! But it would make sense to get the extra battery charging bundle while you're at it. At the price it's selling right now, that would still be a steal.

    Only bad thing about the Z10...there are steps you can take in the settings to make it last longer. I also recommend getting an extra battery & charger as well as a pouch case holder for the device.

    Agreed I picked up a extra battery for mine for $20 so it's no longer a issue. Also with every OS update the battery life increases.

    I have a standard OEM battery. A full charge last a full day for me, I'm a fairly active user between calls, media, emails, text messages, and extensive camera use, both stills and video.

    I always recharge when I get to the office in the morning and usually by then I would have anywhere from as much as 60% left to as little as 6%. It takes about 3 solid hour or little longer to recharge when it's really low. Otherwise it's about 2+ hours.

    I can easily see this battery lasting much longer between charges for a passive user.

    I'm a moderate user.. Mainly texting, whatsapp and Facebook. With about 10-15mins of calls
    My battery usually lasts me for a good 13-14 hours.
    I do have an extra battery with me, but I rarely have to use it.

    You should aim for Q10 or Z30 if you are a heavy user. My z10 can give me 1.5 days on light usage but once I start using screen and cellular network downloading a lot of contents then it looks like the battery will hardly survive a working day (8 hours of heavy web browsing).

    The best advice I can give is to buy the Battery Charger Bundle for the Z10 - again, dependant on your usage, you might not need it...

    What I tend to find is that my usage varies day in, day out - one day I hardly get any emails, BBMs, texts etc and the battery will last all day and other days my popularity explodes and I find myself swapping the drained battery out for the fully charged one nestled in my battery charger

    You say "heavy users" so what is your usage if you don't mind me asking?

    I find it very very good on the new leaks. If you are comfortable installing one then your battery life should be above average to great. On 10.1 I was less than thrilled with it so if you plan on staying stock don't hope for much. Its not bad, but if your looking for great battery life on a stock experience you may want to look elsewhere. All that said I would not trade my Z10 for anything!

    There are so many variables here and no one can recreate your usage. Go with the Z10 and try it out. If you aren't happy with the battery life you can get the battery charging bundle. The second option would be to return the Z10 for either a Q10 or Z30.

    Hope that helps

    Mine is not good. I'm on 10.2.1.1925 since it leaked. I've gone through all the recommended tweaks to improve it. I woke up this morning, took my phone off the charger and I've watched one NFL highlight video and read CB...this is where my battery is now after 42min

    The Z battery is awful in my experience. I charge it at least twice a day on regular use. Heavy use makes me charge it three times a day.

    I find the battery to be very unreliable.

    To clarify for the OP. My experience is not typically that of most. Initially the battery life can be poor with previous versions of the OS. It has however drastically improved for the majority running the newest OS versions.

    I can confirm for myself that this is definitely the case, but it is still far from what I consider a normal battery. If I leave my device fully charged and don't use it, it will hit the 10% mark within 10 to 12 hours. If I take my device fully charged and use it extensively, it will hit the 10% mark after 4 hours tops if not earlier.

    I can depend greatly on where you are. Mine can last all day when I'm home in Pittsburgh, but when I was at my family's house in the midwest, it drained much faster and had to be recharged during the day. I had 4G there and have LTE at home. The quick answer is it all depends. I carry a second battery. If I had. Phone with a non replaceable battery I would get worked up about it, since I can swap batteries it isn't a big deal.

    I am a fairly heavy user and I get about 6 hours with heavy usage. If I barely touch the phone I will get 12 hours. I'm on an STL100-4 (Verizon model) running 10.2.1.1925 which I believe is the latest leak. Battery life for me hasn't really changed from updates. The battery life is definitely NOT a strong point of the phone.

    When I had my first Z10 (had it from launch day to about a few months ago. Now recently back on a Z10) I had the battery bundle with 2 extra batteries and went though 3 batteries a day.

    Recommend you go for the Z30 for battery life. It's average. It'll last you 18 hours with standard use.
