    Hi,

    My z30 battery used to go full day long until even late night. I updated the software day before yesterday and it's causing a heavy battery drain without me using it. While I am aware that software update causes sync mechanism to start and hence drains but under app monitor it shows BBM as a culprit. And I don't use BBM at all. My updated OS version and BBM version is 10.2.1.3175. Can someone help please?

    It's actually 10.2.1.3175 and try a couple of hard resets, hold the volume up and down buttons until you see the blue loading circle, takes a few seconds.

    I noticed a slight decrease in battery life as well. It still lasts me all day until I go to bed but probably a 10% to15% faster drain.

    Mine seems to be draining a little faster. Nothing drastic. Would love to get back where it was before.

    Having the same problem. The battery used to last an entire day of heavy use, now it lasts about 8-9 hours if I am lucky. Was going to wait until the next leak but I might just have to reload the OS again. Will try skipping loading my backup and install everything from scratch to see if that sorts it.

    This has become a major PITA and it appears that I am not the only one suffering with the latest OS on a Z30.

    Thurask has a link that has all radio autoloader find the one for your device and you load it like any other autoloader but it's quite quicker and does not delete anything.

    DITTO! Never had to charge my Z30 at work or into the evening, but now it's dying by 3:00pm! This was the one thing I bragged about to all my iFriends out there just last week when all their iPhones were dead at 9:30pm, and my Z30 was still at 40%! I've tried a Soft Reset to see if that helps. Grrr!

    Maybe it has something to do with everything loading faster....

    Do you guys put the screen brightness to 100% or what? I average about 15 hours a day, if not 24 hrs max on my Z30. This however screen brightness is at 0%.

    To those guys having battery drain issues, are you all using LTE? Tried setting it to 4G for now to check if it's the radio.
