    All I can say is wow! Take this baby off charge when I wake up and haven't had to charge it once before bedtime since I got it a week ago! Usually still over 50% when I go to bed. Normally had to charge the Z10 once during the day to make sure I'd make it through.

    Love the screen size for typing, weight, feel,etc...wasn't sure if it would be too big and if I'd regret switching from the z10. Definitely do not regret it a bit....loooove it.

    Got my Z30 today and turned it on about 8 hours ago. It had about 32% juice out of the box. Been trying the last 8 hours to crush this thing watching videos, streaming music, playing games and it's still at 17%. Really want to drain it to 0% before charging it the first time to condition the battery but finding it impossible to kill it!

    I saw (in the flesh) a Z30 and played around with it for the first time tonight while buying my Mother a phone as a Christmas gift in the local Verizon store.

    Very impressive phone.

    15 hours in and I'm still at 58%. I'm by no means a heavy user, however today i watched YouTube videos, streamed some music, listened to music on the phone, lots of twitter, texting, BBMing, and finally lots of Crackberry forums.

    For me that is a heavy day which this phone just destroyed!

    Very happy.

    Hmmm, I was thinking of starting a new thread regarding Z30 battery conditioning. What we should be doing right out of the box. You are draining to 0 but I thought these types of batteries are harmed when doing that. I guess I've heard conflicting recommendations.

    It's a solid point. I'm not sure it can harm or help. However, I have heard that each battery has a specific cycle count. Whether you charge from 90 to 100 or from 10 to 100 it counts as one cycle so you should really charge as necessary. I've also heard it's not especially good to use the phone while it's plugged in. Who knows, lots of speculation about batteries over the years. Maybe you should start a thread, but ask the pro's for a definitive answer on a few issues. It will be hard to sort the speculation from the truth unless a known expert jumps in

    Sound off on the OS version you guys are on!
    I'm thinking the leak (10.2.1.1055) is not quite as good. That's what I'm on... The benefits of the leak won't make me go back, just curious.
    I have no base because I upgraded to the leak immediately after getting the Z30... What an awesome handset.

    I've heard people say bad things about the battery on the leak. This thing is a beast though.

    Mine is on the leaked OS 10.2.1.1055. I use the phone A fair bit throughout the workday, mainly for email. I'm happy with how long the battery lasts.
    Between 5 and 11:30 PM it's steadily used for everything from music, surfing and of course CB.
    Graph shows Tuesday 7:32am to Wednesday 12:48am. A little over 17 hours of use and plenty of juice left

    Gotta agree on this one. Battery is just so so on me.
    Quite heavy use.. always something pulling me to use the phone every other minute.
    And my battery lasts about 7-8hours normally..
    Lots of Instagram, cb, bbm and group whatsapp. Every hour or half hour checking on bbm channel and also browsing the net for infos.
    Wonder if I could push more juice with better set up.
    Screen light at 70%, whichever apps that allow black theme i'll turn it on.
    Any advices guys?
    Btw, I'm on Z30STA100-2/10.2.1.1055

    I heard this same song and dance about the Q10. Didn't pan out in actual usage. Not as horrible a battery life as the awful Z10 (which i also recall had loads of forum threads praising the battery life) but not the battery champ CrackBerry made it out to be.

    Solid battery life. I wonder how it's going to be one the official 10.2.1 build but so far I'm really impressed.

    Have the phone for over a month now. It gives me 15 to 20 hours on 3G network, depending on usage. The highest I have achieved is 32 hours but that was before I moved my corporate email account on this device.

    To put things in perspective, I have my corporate email, 4 personal emails accounts, LinkedIn, twitter set up on it. I receive between 150 to 200 emails a day on an average. On heavy says that number easily shoots up to 350 to 400 emails on my work email.

    Plus, Bloomberg Anywhere logged in. Several BBM and SMS daily. I listen to online music daily while driving to and fro work which is easily over an hour. And lastly, phone calls that last at least an hour a day, sometimes up to 3 hours a day.

    This phone is a beast! I can't imagine any other phone compare with Z30 on battery life. It's a shame that BlackBerry has virtually no marketing going behind this device.
