    I've been using my z30 as hard as I would have with my z10. Music player, Emailing all day (2 accounts) bbm 3 chats, surfing, cb10, youtube, 9gag and Facebook. As much as I could on wifi and I still have not had to charge this thing. With the z10 I would have had to charge it at least once. Off the charger at 6:15am - 4:42pm 64% battery. BIG STEP UP

    Charge number two on my test. I pulled it from the charger YESTERDAY AM at 6:30, and I am just about to kill the battery in a few minutes. 1.5 days again. Been using it as a hotspot a lot too.

    Couldn't be more pleased.

    I am usually up by 6 am and when I go to bed at around 10 or 11 I am usually just above 50%. I would call myself an average user. I browse the net quite a bit and usually do some texting etc. Phone calls are not as common as at work I don't make calls unless personal which I usually leave till after work. I live in a kind of crazy reception area which I think drains my battery a little but the phone gets me through the day without a problem. Good enough for my needs for sure.

    I find with max brightness and heavy use, it only lasts a few months before I have to recharge.

    Heavy use = mc4 and minion rush

    With low brightness, it lasts about a year and a half

    Typical day for me from about 8 am to midnight with about 20 percent left. The blue bars are cpu load. Im feeling much more like a blackberry user again watching people at work having their phones plugged in from dead batteries and the z30 just keeps going. Its getting a lot of attention too, this should have been the z10. Nobody even knows what the phone is or that BlackBerry realeased a new one, until i tell them.

    Just returned to BlackBerry and bought the Z30. First day today and after an overnight charge it lasted 4hours at which point it was 30% remaining. I guess the device needs a few days before I see the optimum performance. All returns pls remember to use only the charger that came into the box. All outputs are 5v but this one has 850mA vs 700mA on other BlackBerry chargers.

    Took the phone off the charger at 6am, it's now 11pm and it just dropped below 10%. I love this phone and it's time for bed!

    I'm trying to track down a constant battery drain on mine. When everything was set up the same way as my z10, on idle with nothing running I'd be at 0.05 watt drain according to Battery Guru. Same setup on my Z30 and the constant drain is about 0.1 or 0.2 watts. So while the battery life actually using the phone is better, my idle drain is worse. This is after three days of letting it 'settle'.

    I've wiped and reinstalled the OS twice so far. Just did another wipe this morning and I'm going to add one account and one app at a time to see what might be causing the drain. Hopefully this time it will take.

    But outside of the the constant drain, in terms of actual usage, it does take a lot longer to run it down than the Z10.

    Running 10.1.0.1791.
    Are you not taking into account the bigger screen which will drain the battery in idle mode a bit more?

    Its relative to the amount you use the device. For me i was getting around 10 to 12 hours on the z10 of daily usage (not constant usage). On the z30 im getting over 18 hours and I'm still left with 20 percent battery when i charge it because I'm going to sleep by then. I would say that the z30 battery life is better than twice as good as the z10.

    I'm doing a torture test of sorts, with my device currently configured as follows:

    Screen brightness cranked to max
    4 email accounts configured with push
    Facebook, Twitter, Blaq, BBM all configured
    Apps left open, streamed some music at the gym yesterday, etc
    Regular use of the device

    And i'm at 18% battery after 30 hours. Not bad.
    Pretty!

    As posted before in another thread....
    Works as I ever wanted...
    Lasts the whole day...from 7 a.m. til 11 p.m. with still over 20% left...
    I use it as hotspot (1GB transmitted) , do some radio streaming, make about 2h of calls, browse the web, read and write many messages and post in CB of course :-) and so on...
    Very good....compared to everything else...

    Day three with Z30. After and overnight charge I disconnected the device at 8am. Now at 10:45am I only have 53% battery left. That's 50% drainage in 3 hours!!! I hope there is some reality to all the hype that I have read and bought the Z30 for. So far this is very disappointing performance from another BlackBerry device after going from Z10 to Lumia 925 to Z30. Also note that this is the performance I am getting in Qatar over the Ooreedoo network. Will see how things work out in Dubai over DU.

    Make sure everything is updated. Your oS AND Apps regardless if you don't use the app.

    Everything is updated and the OS is 1521. The System is still running at 50%+ resources in app Manager. Perhaps it's the network provider??? Today is day four with the device and system is still running hot and over 50%??

    What OS are you guys using? Who is your network provider?

    My system is using 2 to 4 percent so you definitely have some sort of issue there. If i were you i would backup, use a loader to upgrade os and start with no sd or sim card to see if the system still uses that much. Then take steps from there to selectively find the problem.

    perhaps you might wanna try removing your SIM and just run your phone SIM-less, connect to the wifi and hit the "software update" button? i heard someone here just posted that he just got his Z30 updated to the newest 10.2.0.429 (10.2.0.1803) OS just by doing so..

    the 1521 OS is the very first OS of Z30 though..

    Just updated to 1803. Let's see how the battery performs with this OS.
