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

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

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...

While a software solution cannot be made...a hardware replacement can be done!
Why not make a battery of the same size and model that can hold more juice???

The battery development is way behind because the rockets that propel the mining crews to Pandora to mine Unobtainium are falling short.

Too bad. They should've colonized the blue people...
RIM would've been known as blueberry by now.

not possible without increasing the price a lot. while new battery technology IS on the horizon, its not cost effective for mass market

actually it's only suck if it's on LTE but on 3G I think it's ok.. since it promises 10hrs of battery life

Poor battery designed and low capacity, anyway overall quality for BB10 phone is very poor customers satisfaction even though I never touch it but I can tell. Only crazy people will buy BB10. BB10 is falling off the RIM.

They should have stuck a larger capacity battery in there in the first place. But like was mentioned in a previous post, users can just buy a larger one when they become available.

Just saw the battery size. They shoulda just stuck a bigger battery in the phone....

Its funny tho cuz QNX is supposed to be so effecient. Seems for most modern OS's....it might need a bigger battery.

If it has a removable battery.....it can be fixed.

Battery life is nearly more important than the software itself.

"In short, if you're unsatisfied by the battery of the BB Z10, you'll either have to put up with it, or try to get rid of it and buy another device."

Come on ray if It was my first time on phone arena i would put your article writing skills in question...............Isnt that why the battery is REMOVABLE??

If the battery isnt good enough im pretty sure one could go on ebay and find A BIGGER ONE......with more capacity........I highly doubt they would have to get rid of the device because of this minor reason

Bottom line folks we welcome Blackberry into the BIG BOYS CLUB. This has been a MAJOR PROBLEM for android since 2009/2010 nothing new at all. Matter of fact battery life hasn't started getting better till the beginning of 2012 as far as some android devices. When I purchased my Htc Evo 4g in June 2010 i just purchased a second battery and carried it every day along with my charger. The Htc Evo 4g was the Grandaddy of all 4g/Lte devices the device that started it all fast forward to today. If it has to be then it has to be carry another battery.

or maybe Heins was a bit caught in the moment of this fast paced game and wasnt able to properly "analyze" the battery situation.......Hence the reason why they made it REMOVABLE?

I had high hopes for BB to survive with BB10. But if this is how they are going support their devices....I don't know if I should hold onto that hope.

Look at it this way. The Z10's screen is 18% larger than the iphone 5. It's battery has 26% more mAh. So if the iphone 5 lasts you either all day or almost all day, the Z10 should be just fine, assuming same usage, or even provide increasing returns due to the efficient coding.

Don't forget the z10 runs applications live in the background. The iphone does not to save battery life.

Well, we have our first major BB10 issue. That took what, a week?

I won't say that Blackberry can't survive despite this issue, especially if people can still get their phones through a day. Remember how awful LTE phones were at first?

However, it is ironic because earlier Blackberries usually kicked the crap out of iPhones and Android models in battery life. Now we have a complete reversal.

Id say given that unlike Iphone or Android, the OS offers true multitasking capabilities, I'd say the battery life is actually not bad. Its at least comparable to some android flagships.

Welcome to the world of better hardware. Poor battery life is common in all smart phones. I know people with iPhone 5, GS 3 and GN2 will claim 1-2 battery life. However they so not use the phone very much. My Note one was 6 hours tops with LTE doing emails and calls. Y iPhone 5 is 7-8 hours. BB owners best not expect the days of Curve battery life.

The ignorance and stupidity of this place never ceases to amaze me.
Clearly Ray S has a major hate on for anything BB, perhaps his sponsor has been giving him the CBS "Dish" treatment.
Of course he could have also suggested the alternative of peeling off the back cover and SWAPPING OUT THE BATTERY FOR A SPARE. Try doing that on the majority of high end smartphones these days, especially the highly coveted iphone 5
