Hi all ,

I've been on 7.1.0.1033 for a couple of days and check out the battery usage (on idle)

its  1-2% average per hour (without whatsapp installed)

on my other 9900, with whatsapp installed, the battery usage average 7-9% per hour (on idle)

not really happy

Yeah,

 

This OS is really how the os7 devices should have been right from the start to keep the BlackBerry market share. 

 

Glad they have finally got it right though.

Re: Bold 9900 Battery Life

Ice, are you talking about idle usage rate? During idle, my is about 1-2% during idle w/ Whatsapp installed but existed out.

What's app was always high drain on os7

 

The amount of complaints we used to get from people 

Seeing bad battery life, then after we suggest removing whatsapp it was sorted.  

 

Now on os10 it's not as bad. Even I have started to use

It sometimes.

Re: Bold 9900 Battery Life

Just make sure u exit out instead of jumping out of whatsapp. What I mean is you have to going into Whatsapp menu by pressing BB button and then select exit. You'd still get messages notices whenever you receive them.

just reinstall whatsapp and here is what happened

battery usage jumped from 3-5% to 12% and I didn't even use it.

I also made sure the application is closed and not showing when I press bb symbol.

I think its time to uninstall it indefinitely.

Re: Bold 9900 Battery Life

Man... Weird, if it's not running in the background then why would it consume any juice...?

Why is it that bb phones are so incompatible with so many popular apps.
