Default Q10 Battery Life??

Please Login to Remove!

I went to the Blackberry site and it said that you should get 13.5 hours talk time for 3G. But I have 4G and I was wondering how much talk time I should get out of a fully charged battery? My battery seems to be dying awfully fast all of the sudden and I wanna test it to see if I need a new one. Does anyone know how much talk time we should get on the Q10?

Thank you in advance.

10 hours on 2G (on paper, in practice it is around 8-9), 13.5 hours on 3G (on paper, in practice it's around 11), and around 9-10 Hours on LTE/4G (on paper, in practice it should be around 8.5-9)

As with anything, ymmv (Your Mileage May Vary)

Keep in mind there is no "talk" on LTE currently, only data. LTE with MiMo uses two transmitters and two receive paths to double the speed so battery life on LTE is going to suffer somewhat. The good part is Verizon and ATT have 700Mhz as their primary channels for LTE so tx power can travel further with less path loss. TMO and Metro in the SoCal area are using 2150Mhz so kiss off that battery life. I can tell you first hand that my Q10 beats the battery life on my iPhone 5 all to hell.

Super not impressive..... IMHO

I'm running with a battery charger at home & the office (3 batteries today) and I seem to get by.

How many accounts are you syncing to? What is the imap sync setting?

I have about 15 with about 10 on 1hr and the rest 20-5minute refresh...

Do a lot of talking and I've killed it in 6-7 hours.

If only we had a lync app that worked ... sideload fail :(

I can't say how the z10 preforms but I'm glad q10 has a bigger battery...

imho

I think part of the problem is the activesync implementation ---- HEINOUSLY inefficient. Unless you have the rare privilage of IMAP push sync (gmail discontinued earlier this year).

That was the huge advantage of bb prior to 10. Full syncs were unnecessary you were only pushed what you didn't have.

And it was a faster (quicker email delivery) I miss those days ...but there still things (browser!) that make me re-great the move less.
