    I really wonder what the standby and talk times are, on an actual practical user level are like for this phone.

    The specs would seem to suggest that it should be quite decent. Like above and beyond most smart phones. (The cpu isn't crazy, the resolution is relatively modest and the mah is high). They didn't make the mistake of upping everthing, only to have a phone of the same-ish performance and battery life, with nearly invisible resolution changes.

    The price being good, and the battery life being probably unusually good (if it is), for a fully capable modern smart phone should be enough to sell decent amounts of units IMO.
    The Z3 is "rated" at up to 15 hrs 30 min of talk time, in comparison the Z10 is only 10 hrs. Standby by time is 384 hrs for the Z3 vs 312 hrs for the Z10. So battery life is up compared to the Z10... which isn't a ringing endorsement. But if you look at a few of the $100 phones it will be going up against, many of them only have 6 - 10 hrs of rated talk time. In fact the Huawei Ascend only rates at 3 Hrs... of course it has dual SIMS and they can both work at the same time.

    I think most of us don't really know what the Indonesian smartphone market is like, how the Z3 compares in features or in pricing. But it sure seems that DUAL SIMS is one of the key features that many devices there have.... and the Z3 doesn't.
