Default curve 9360 battery life

Please Login to Remove!

I have just got a new Curve 9360 and the battery life is very poor _ half the life of my old curve 9300
Is there a reason for this?

What are you doing with this device that you weren't with your 9300?

Also, please update your profile to reflect your current device.

following the specs it is normal that the batterylife is less, same battery but a screen resolution with double the pixels: reduced battery life. but i still think you should survive at least 3 days with it, especially just after purchase

Three days? What are you smoking? Most smartphones get about a day with normal use, less if you use it a lot or you re in a fringe area where it is constantly searching for a signal.

Don't let the battery get below 20% more than a few times, otherwise you will damage it and will have to replace it.

Look at our FAQ for an article on maximizing battery life. That should help.

Thanks for your responses.
1. We are doing nothing different with the phone than we were doing before
The battery now doesnt last even 1 day whereas before it could last 1.5 days

2. I have not updated profile because this is one of many phones I have

Thanks
