Having complaints about the Z10's battery life? BlackBerry can't do anything about it

0. phoneArena 07 Feb 2013, 06:53 posted on

It appears that we haven't been the only ones to find the BlackBerry Z10 lacking as far as battery life goes. Other users have also complained of poor battery life, but unfortunately, it seems that there's nothing that can be done about this...

they could do like others do (Nokia for example...): promise better battery life in the next update and then release an update that changes nothing...

excuse me, i do have a lumia 920 and the pr1.1 update did improve its battery performance.i didn't have lumia 800 but many reports that indeed its first update improved its battery performance.and all nokias i had can manage a day with a single charge(although its not the best but its average so its sufficiently good) .all u want is obviously some trolling and fanboy wars.what brought nokia to the subject in the first place??!
btw lumia 920(as an example for a nokia) has a good to average battery life even b4 pr1.1, just check its gsmarena battery test(which was b4 pr1.1, ) and u will know what i mean.
if u don't know about something ,don't comment about it

my lumia 920 before portico had good battery life, after portico still good life. i can go a whole day of using it at work and get through the day without charging it. my galaxy s3 on the other hand doing the same thing needs to be charged one time during the day. not to 100% but it does need some kind of charge to make it to the night.

Oh dear, that is the last thing BB need, with phones like iPhone5, Galaxy S3, Galaxy Note2, Motorola RAZR MAXX etc... Managing impressive battery life with their large batteries and excellent power management, this is one area BB cannot afford to screw up. I hope it's not a widespread issue.

Battery life on the Galaxy S3 is very good that's for sure. Your friend has something else wrong with his devices that's application related or network related.

I get 2 days and sometimes 3 days on standby before the JB update. After the JB update I get 2 days.

Looks like we have different facts....

I can just barely squeeze through a day on my Galaxy S3, but then again I am a fairly heavy user. My sister has the same one, and only charges hers about every 3 days because she barely uses it.

The iPhone 5 has some of the most impressive battery life around when it's screen is on, and It can surf the web a hell of a lot longer than any AMOLED device can. Many sites have backed that up with evidence. The S3 is also one of the best Android handsets out there for battery life.

One friend who has a problem he knows nothing about does not constittute proof. Maybe you should send him over ot the XDA forums to ask about improving his battery life.

i see nobody has mentioned the idea of buying a second battery? they cant cost that much. Z10 owners should feel privaliged that they can acturlly remove and replace their battery. Many other high end smart phones dont have this option

Agreed. And third party batteries will come soon with large capacities.

Add that cost to the device's cost and it will stop making sense
They should have given a decent battery by default that would last a full day with good 3G use. Above that if someone wants they can buy another battery

some how i dont think it would be a problem if the iphones battery "wasnt enough" and apple forced them to buy another one........even though the iphone is sky high in price from the start, some how i dont think apple fans would mind buyin another

totally agree
few ppl will fret over additional costs that may have been associated with the iPhone

my Gnex barely lasts a day on 3G. hence why i have brought a battery with double capacity. there probaly isnt a double capacity battery for the Z10 yet but give a few months and there should be. Youve just gotta be patient
