Re: Bold 9900 Battery Life

Latest OS .474 seems improve battery life.
I'll try it again with 3G network for this day.

Will report it later, I'm start discharging right now after this post.

Re: Bold 9900 Battery Life


I would say it improves the battery life a little but as the handset is heavy on the small battery don't expect miracles.
OS10 on the Z10. A great combination.

Re: Bold 9900 Battery Life

Now running 10hours, with 3G&2G activated, still have 30% left.
It's much better than before.

Re: Bold 9900 Battery Life

Maybe will go better after some days,
Just wait battery to re-calibrate.
But don't expect to much on that little capacity battery.

Yes, I agree. I have a spare battery anyway just in case.

Todays battery is looking better, 40% used in 6 hours at the moment. With heavy usage as usual. Better than drained in 8 1/2 yesterday

Re: Bold 9900 Battery Life

After 17 hours down to 40% SOC, still on old .296 version. Too afraid to upgrade as I can live with this - definitely appears as if the battery may have settled after a month's use. Wifi and blue tooth is off, but 2G/3G is on.

 

Web browsing is a battery killer of note.
