    Model Details:
    Model Number: STL100-1
    Software Release: 10.3.1.1565
    MicroSD: 16GB Sandisk

    I updated my phone 2 days ago and since then battery drains very fast, within 4-5hrs, which was minimum of 10-12 hours before update. I always keep minimum brightness. GPS, NFC, Bluetooth, hotspot, blend everything is always off.
    I tried remaining on battery saving mode all through the day, but still same happens.
    Even in the bedside mode(with battery saving mode on), it drains in same amount of time.
    Battery heats up many times (but not always).
    I have no heavy apps installed. Using it same as 10.2.1.

    Is anyone else facing same problem?
    Please help me if anyone knows any workaround.
    Thanks.

    [EDIT]
    The battery life is showing improvements now. Its back to 10-12 hrs again. I was worried but now it absolutely fine. [at]newcollector thanks for the advice it has "settled in" :P now and everything is working fine. For the guys who are still facing this problem. It took 7days for my phone to get back to older battery life. I didn't change my usage habits at all. I'm enjoying the new upgrade now, ITS REALLY GOOD.

    Same here with z10 battery gets realy hot drains I have 2 battery's fully charged at work I don't use my phone. Till break until then it's not doing anything but it's still using 30 percent battery in the space of a hour or 2. Also when I make or receive a call I get a noise like I've pressed a key when I havent that's realy annoying and flickering screen a lot of apps don't work and when I get a call and my phone is on silent if I answer the call it takes my phone off silent this is a really bad update. I've re installed software security wiped several times with no success the whole phone is also realy laggy. I'd have thought the amount of time they took releasing this update that it would of been perfect instead it's as good as a leak

    My phones battery life has increased significantly after loading 10.3.1.

    I used Link to load the official OS which wiped the device.

    Restored just the contacts and device settings and installed all apps again from BlackBerry World and Snap.

    The battery indicator wasn't showing the correct percentage initially but now its all fine.

    Part of the issue I'd that update is indexing, getting BBM contacts and groups back up and for lack of a better term, "settling in". The poor initial battery life is often due to that. If you have Blend turned on and are not connected by USB, you will find that your battery will drain. Just remember to turn off Blend from your phone when you leave your computer.

    My battery is draining 3 times faster than pre 10.3 install. I don't use Blend, I changed nothing but the OS version.

    My Z10 was the same way until last night. I put a fresh battery in and it's still at 70% this morning.
    That's a great improvement since the update on the 20th.
    It does get better just give it some time.

    Mine was fine until last night. Went bed, 65% battery, set the alarm, put it on bedside mode, 6 1/2 hrs later, dead. Constant drain. Nothing running.

    Brings me back to the first 4 Months of Ownership, two years ago.

    I had the same problem after I updated. It would drain the battery in like 2 hours. I couldn't figure it out. I thought let's give it 1-2 days for the os to settle in but no, it kept draining like crazy. So I decided to restart my device, did a battery pull as well and then everything was fine. I guess something was running in the background constantly. Now I have better battery life than 10.2. Very happy so far. I can see 15% more juice than 10.2

    It happened to me to. Your phone is still adjusting to the new update. It will get better. Just leave it charging for a long time and it will be better than you even expected.

    Thanks DDeveshh. I did follow your comments: I did turn off "Blend" and restarted my BB Z10, now it is amazing and there is no issue of battery drainage. My mobile taken more than 40 hours (roundabout two days) to complete the updating process. But on the other hand, after updating OS from 10.2 to 10.3.1, the battery performance is better than ever before. So I suggest all BB users who updated OS to 10.3 please follow this way.

    I am facing a lot of trouble with my Z 10, it suddenly starts getting hot, sometime unbearable to keep in pocket, then I need to restart for like 4 to 5 times and then during this process battery drains out like every 7-8% every minute and I couldn't do anything to save it, I lost my trust on my phone that it will work on my need though even it has 100% battery.
