    Does anyone here own both iPhone 5 AND Z10? I do, and I notice that Z10 drains more battery than iPhone 5. And as you know, Z10 battery is almost 5-600 mAh more than the iPhone 5. Both phones run the latest OS, with Z10 runs 10.1 AT&T official OS.

    Both phones are running in the same wifi environment. Both has similar usage, in fact I can say the iPhone 5 probably get used more because there are games and I play games occasionally, Z10 does not have any games app, only use Z10 for BBM only. BBM activities are not so much.

    I wonder if the Z10 battery is bad, or it is how it is...

    Anyone who own both iPhone 5 and Z10 can chime in and let me know?

    Thanks.

    I own both and find them comparable.

    Of course, the Z30 beats both

    I found my iPhone 5 was worse. It would also shut off randomly anywhere from 20% or lower. Then, when I'd go to turn it on i get a prompted to connect to a charger when really i knew it wasn't dead. Finally when I'd get it back on the battery would be below 10%. I'm not the only person who experienced this issue as I've had multiple friends with the same problem.

    ANYWAYS, It's all irrelevant because the Z10 is my daily driver

    My iPhone 5s battery is worse compared to z10 maybe coz it's jail broken and gets a lot of use!


    Edit: I experience the above issue of iPhone battery dying suddenly too!

    Turn OFF your BBLink Wifi connection and Security/Diagnostics in Settings. Turn off bluetooth/NFC/ Wireless connections when not in use. The first two added almost five hours of battery life to my z10.

    My wifi is always on however.

    Retest and see if your z10 improves.. it did for me

    Z10 running low on juice?
    Swap out the battery.
    or Install the 4500mAh battery and NEVER bother with poor battery life again!

    See the thread link in my signature for all the info.
