    So they claim 25 hours of mixed use. Can anyone confirm whether or not you get that much or at least close?

    Just started using my Z30 on Monday for the first full day. I've gone all day from 6:30AM till 6PM working and then after that till 11PM playing with it here and there and the lowest I've gone to was 56% when I plugged it in. I've been VERY happy with it. I'm taking a chance trying out the Z30 as I had a Q10 and loved it. I'm a big physical keyboard guy as I send/receive 20+ emails a day, tons of BBM's and texts for personal and work.
    Even today I started at 6:30 this morning and right now it's 4:45 and battery is still at 72%, so I'd say they are pretty close on that number.

    I'm going to take a guess and say that you didn't bother looking at the other threads stating how well the z30 battery is.


    The answer is yes. Depending on your usage it can last that long. Mine personally has gone 48 hrs but 24 is very common.

    Under very heavy use, you will get at least 10 hours.

    I usually get 13 hours of use.

    Light useage 2 days easy (no gaming and very light video useage).

    Heavy useage by my standards is a day and a half but I tend to charge it as I wouldn't want it going flat when I'm out of town without 3 hours to give it a full charge. I don't like only charging a little bit during the day, would rather have it had a full charge the night before.

    All depends on your useage. You'll get a feel for it after a few weeks.

    I can't say exact hrs, but I can tell you that I start work at 530 am and an in and out of cell service daily. 10-20 calls up to 3 minutes ea. 30 or so emails and bbm and a few texts. I usually take 5-10 pics or a couple minutes of documentary video daily.

    My z10 would be below 20% by 200 pm.

    It is now 650 pm, I installed the 1803 leak at 430 this morning, did full restore or 2.4 gig, been in and out of service all day. Some calls, 30 or so emails delta with 5 minutes of video, 6 BBM. 2 texts.

    Just checked battery and at 59%.

    That's amazing considering the processor work today with all the re-indexing etc.

    Hope that all helps.

    Wow! That's amazing. Just returned my Z30 yesterday - awesome device but I must have had a bad battery.....started using it 9:30 am - light to average mixed use of browsing, bbm and texts with a couple of 5 minute videos. by 4PM was down below 50%. Nothing like your experience. Too bad - would have kept it otherwise....

    I'm up at 6 and use my BlackBerry solid for the morning with Web browsing etc. When I get to work I use my phone throughout the day at various times. In the evening my phone often sees heavy use again. I usually go to bed a little after 10 and my battery is most often at around 50-55%

    I'm in the same situation... Gave it to my son to play Minion Rush while I was getting lunches made this morning and when I got it back from him (maybe 15-20 minutes later) there was already a noticable drop in the battery meter. I can't be sure if it's just that the monitor isn't calibrated yet since I've only had it for a week now or if there's another issue at play but playing one game for 15-20 minutes shouldn't chew through that much battery.. I've played a couple of time wasters, checked the CB10 app a few times and checked Twitter. I've been going since 6:30 this morning and the battery has already drained about a third. I have my screen brightness down to minimum and have turned off wifi and LTE to see if that makes a difference but I thought I wasn't going to have to do that with the Z30. I may have to do a backup and try reinstalling the OS, see if that makes a difference.

    Check out my screen shot for the weekend

    Just Ordered My Z30 - Real World Battery Life In Hours-img_00000006.png

    Little bit of use on the weekend because I was busy at work and didn't have much time to play with the phone (light Web browsing, taking a few sniff of crack on CB10 and a few emails) to moderate use on Saturday to Monday.

    So they claim 25 hours of mixed use. Can anyone confirm whether or not you get that much or at least close?

    Did you play around with it before installing the leak? I'm trying to figure out if it's my device, the stock OS from my telco or something that I'm doing /installed that is destroying my battery life.
    I could understand if I was watching full length movies everyday or streaming music all day but I generally download and listen to an audio podcast that's about an hour long (download over wifi) don't make a ton of phone calls or watch lots of videos.. check CB, twitter, BBM and have 3 e-mail accounts pushing to my phone and by the time I get the kids in to bed (8:30 or so at night) after being up since 6:30 I have enough juice to check CB and maybe play mah jong or a similarly non graphic intensive game and I get the 'you're at 20%' warning by about 9 so I have to plug it back in to charge. I know it takes some time to settle out after an OS upgrade and adding new e-mail accounts/contacs but this is getting a tad ridiculous.

    Woah that is really good, mine looks nothing like that. I lost about 1-2% on standby, I do think some of my android apps are killing my battery more so. I may need to stop those tasks.

    I do still get a good 18 hours out of my battery, and that is with LTE on, not a great reception area. 50-60 emails, 30 BBMs and a few phone calls. I will start at 8 and at 6 i will have 60-65% battery left.

    Mine is not so good :/

    Done a security wipe and tried to see if it settled.

    I'm thinking I need a micro simcard so it sits properly on the contacts as I cut the original size simcard myself.

    I hope that's it.

    Moderate use yesterday - took off the charger, @ 6am. Didn't plug in last night. Got it up and checked my Z30 - 53% remaining. Probably could have gotten the rest of today without charging.

    Extremely happy with my Z30.

    Definitely something wrong then because I'm lucky to get much more than about 6 without wanting to charge it to make sure it'll last through the drive home..
