    With the latest fw (software version 10.2.1.2102) my Q10 (SQN100-3) drains about 3% of battery charge per hour if I do nothing with it. BASA (Battery Analyzer) is telling me my battery health status is 92% that sounds good to me. That's an example screenshot of today. I've used the wikipedia app for about 5 minutes and downloaded a 150MB file using the WiFi connection. After that almost nothing. NFC and Bluetooth always off. 3G connection. GPS not active. Wifi off when out of my house. P.s. From 9 to 10,30 I just moved by car and not used the phone at all. Then I stopped and not used the phone either since now.
    What should I do? No androids app launched and/or running in the background.

    I don't say this to be mean, it's just that there are countless threads that discuss battery issues and it would be counterproductive to rewrite the issues here.
    Do a search and read the threads.
    You'll find the answers you need!

    I do not want to be mean either but I am looking at the forum almost everyday and already read everything I can. PLUS, the majority of threads that discuss battery drain are about Z10s. I've tried to make my phone discharge to 0 and recharge it completely a couple of times. I've tried to pull my battery for hours and then recharge.. I really read everything. If I am here to ask it is because the issue is becoming serious and I would like to know if I HAVE TO buy a new battery or not. I need an advice before making a purchase; that's it

    I find that basa uses a lot of battery itself especially when its an active frame.

    Your discharge looks normal to me. 14-15 hours is decent no?

    What was your consumption like before 2141?

    Basa is closed and run headless ;-) Anyway it is not 14-15 hours: look at the graph and consider that I've used the phone for about 15 minutes. And it lost 17% in 3 hours! Look at THIS screenshot below. And now I am using the phone: reading news,browsing and 10 minutes with native game.. Nothing so heavy. It says 3 hours with 54% remaining!

    I wish I had the answer!
    Although, I've never had any issues, there are so many variables it's mind boggling!
    There doesn't seem to be an easy fix.

    For me, with regular use.... BBM'ing all day, playing music, a few games talking on the phone, reading a magazine....Emails..(3 accounts on push)... pretty much using my Z10 all day, i get an average of 18 to 26 hours!.

    My basa consumes quite a bit of power even when running headless.

    Three email accounts. 2 of them syncing every 4 hours. 1 of them every hour. No facebook and no social networks at all; just a foursquare account. I am using bbm and whatsapp for IM. I have got some android games,but I am not using them since some days and in the last month I have just been playing clash of clans sometimes..
