Z10 battery performance

by Volker Weber

It's 6:30 in the afternoon. The battery in my BlackBerry Z10 holds a 55% charge. I got up in the morning at 8:00, made a 5 minute video call, checked all my emails, answered a few of them, looked at my Twitter stream once in a while. The rest of the time, the Z10 was in my pocket. Not bad.

One more thing: that was today and yesterday. I have not charged it since 8:00am yesterday.

sorry, I wanted to write: shorter than,the iPhone, not the ipad

Wie oft geladen und entladen vor der Messung?

Volker Weber, 2013-02-13 19:47

war noch keine Messung

Christian Just, 2013-02-13 20:05

Wow -- that is rather fantastic.

Activesync, Facebook, Linkedin and Twitter enabled?

Marco Foellmer, 2013-02-14 08:49

Yes. 49 hours in, the battery is now at 35%.

Ich komme mit dem Z10 mittlerweile auch locker zwei Tage über die Runden bei normaler Nutzung (Active Sync enabled), nachdem der Akku zwei Ladezyklen hinter sich hatte...

In many instances we have found that excessive battery drain has been caused by 3rd party apps installed on the devices. These apps tend to keep running loops rather than being event driven.

It is clear that many developers still have a desktop mentality when it comes to creating apps for devices and this is not just for BlackBerry phones. Android and iPhone have more than their fair share of irresponsible apps yet it is the device manufacturers which end up getting the blame. Most phones do actually have a decent battery performance. But once they get loaded up with Hostile Avian type apps and phart sound apps then battery life plummets like a stone.

Could it be that the update improved the battery? I only got about 5 to 6 hours with Activesync, Gmail, Twitter and Facebook enabled.

Christian Just, 2013-02-14 13:59

Whatever the reason, 5 to 6 hours seems way too low. However, I can only go to HSPA. Were you on LTE? That would explain the difference. The other reason can be a bad signal. Radio transmit is the most expensive part of a smartphone. More expensive than screen.

I would love to share my observations, but I need a Z10 first....
Ideas on how to get one for a demo before next Wednesday welcome!!!

Du warst bestimmt schon lange nicht mehr in London, oder?

Volker Weber, 2013-02-14 16:41

Hm, ich war in London mit LTE unterwegs. In Deutschland auch. Aber das bin ich ja auch mit Lumia 920 und iPhone 5. Da war das Z10 noch etwas schlechter. Wie gesagt, seit dem Software-Update habe ich es nicht mehr genutzt. Liegt jetzt im Testlabor.

Christian Just, 2013-02-14 19:06

@Christian Just: In welchem Mobilfunknetz hast Du das Z10 in Deutschland verwendet? Welches hast Du im UK verwendet? Ich habe eine Vermutung woran die sehr kurze Akkulaufzeit liegen könnte. Bevor ich aber "öffentlich" was schreiben kann, muss ich selber noch etwas testen.

Danke Volker, du hast immer noch die besten Tipps ;-)
