    For one reason and one reason only. Battery life. Terrible battery life. I know I can buy an extended battery but doing that will bulk the phone up and I don't want that. Ducks because I love it but battery life blows

    You can by a spare battery and keep in close by and it won't add any bulk. I had one for my Z. But now that in have the Z30 I don't have that problem lol

    Yes but I don't wanna have to carry an extra battery around. I've always been an android guy and I had the HTC One before this and since the new One is out ima just return this since it's within my 14 days and go get the new One

    Really just wanted to see if that's been the cause of anyone else dumping it for something else whether that be the z30 or another phone with better battery life

    No but I don't wanna have to carry a spare around. Plus I like my 1080p screens and stuff so I'm gonna go back to my HTC one for now but once BlackBerry comes out with a 1080p phone with a killer battery il be sold

    Understandable. It's the first phone I've had to keep a spare battery with me and I'm not fond of it either. Z30 definitely excites me but I also think I'm waiting for the next batch of devices. I also would love a 1080p device with a killer battery. Hopefully even bigger than the Z30's

    If you love the z 10 but hate the battery, then go for the z30.(better everything)
    Or else go for the android.
    You should be happy for the decision that you made, not the decisions that we made you do.

    Better android than android. The future is black....

    No battery life isn't good, and it's my biggest gripe with the phone. The size and build of the phone are great but it literally can't last half a day on a full charge. I've never carried a spare battery with me because it's just another thing to carry around, but it is what it is. The Z30 is much improved and as an owner of a HTC One it gives it a real run for its money on build quality (only bad part of Z30 build is crappy side buttons). Battery life is no contest as t Z30 is way better.

    I'll have the M8 tomorrow and look forward to comparing it to the Z30 in terms of build quality and battery life (which is supposed to be much improved on the M8).

    I understand. After having a Z10 for a month I went back to the Q10. The battery life is literally night and day. Sure, the screen is smaller but the tradeoff is fine given the amazing keyboard and excellent battery. It also keeps me focused on life and less on phone (if that makes sense lol). I have all the apps I need, still, and the form factor is great for those who don't want a phablet.

    Once you get the m8 can you write thread on how it compares to the z30?

    Have you turned off unused services such as Bluetooth, WiFi, Mobile Hotspot and set the screen brightness to 45%-50%? Are you running Google Android applications?

    Simple. The answer is in your own post.
    User error. You went against your own grain, that's all.
    Good Luck!
