    My gf just recently got a new iPhone5s this january, and i wanted to know how is its battery life compared to my z10. So yesterday when we went out shopping, i told her not to change the settings, which were pretty much this:
    - 3G all the way no wifi
    - brightness at 30%
    - no bluetooth
    - 1 email account, syncs manually

    I had pretty much the same settings. We unplugged our phones at around 12 noon. We played games for about 1-2 hours, checked FB a lot, browsed the net for like 2 hours more. By 7 in the evening, my battery percentage is already at 20, while hers was still at 30+%.

    I must say, decent battery life for such a small battery.

    PS: i got my z10 april of last year

    My question is, how's your battery life? Can it get you through the day? What OS do you have? Thanks!

    remember something about your gf iphone one email account and manually program is not working on anything on that. normally the push method works around 15 minutes looking for emails and push it to the device.

    if you see the time you spend with more the 8 months of use your device for sure you will beat her, also you must remember that if she is a good iphone user she close the apps and with a new battery that is a difference.

    i had the 5c some days i can tell you normally for 3pm had to start charging the device, hey in my case im different usage depending on the day, sometimes from 9am to 12pm i can drain my battery no matter the phone, is you wish try to swap phones with her and give it a proper use.

    The apple has made it so that their OS is battery friendly. Almost every time I try to outlast an apple phone it will come close or best my battery life. Everytime.

    Wow. Today we are going out of town. Unplugged our phones at 2 am. Now it's almost 6 am, and her battery is at 80%, while mine is at 59%.

    The Z10 battery is ****. Atleast use proper settings like LTE and other things to test it. My battery blows heavy usage will get me about 4-6 hours. Light usage will get me 8-10.. completely garbage which is why I hate the battery pack and if I am doing very heavy usage I still won't get through into the late night..

    I have the habit with all my phones to hava data, wifi and lte disconnected. Make around 15/20 calls, 1 hour playing, 4/5 times i connect to data or wifi to sync my emails.....navigate a bit on the phone and net: with this usage i get 2 full days of battery and don't turn off night time. I am not a BB expert, but i'd suggest some users to install the right OS/leak.
    Cheers

    I do that sometimes, but i can't really leave my data off, as I need to connect with my bbm contacts.

    It's 9am and I'm down to 20%, i turned off all data to save energy. She still has 50%.

    But i know Apple had 7 years to improve on their OS, and bb10 is barely a year old, so I'm pretty sure bb10 will improve! I just hope it's soon!

    What ruins the battery more is when carriers cannot provide a steady signal. That kills it as it uses energy to search for a signal.

    Battery life was one of the reasons that I swapped over to the Q10.

    Prior to getting my Z30 I was barely getting a full day out of the Z10. My day of use starts about 7am and some days before 10pm it needed to be put on charge. Being self employed I have to leave the wifi connected and monitor emails. Now having the Z30 I have passed on some use to it which gets 2 days on a charge and I'm also noticing the Z10 is making it close to 24hrs.

    It's the radio file that's messing up the Z10's stats, download the .1926 radio and it will best the 5s

    Its pretty sad when you have to basically turn the device into a dumb phone to make it last through the day. If you can't use your device the way it was intended to, or how you want to, whats the point in having it?

    With that said, I leave everything on(BT, WIFI, LTE, etc, etc), and I definitely get through at least an 8 hour day. If I play a few games during the day, I can kill the battery in an hour from a full charge. lol

    Well, no. As i said it's a habit i have with all my devices, not just with the Z10 to get it throught the day. I have no problems to switch the data on when i need it and off when i don't. Find it weird? I work with wifi service providers and i often analyze spectrums of phone cells.........and believe me, the less radiation i have in my pocket, better i feel.
