I'm with Bell, my battery, yesterday for example, lasted 7 hours with two phone calls totalling maybe 3 minutes, a dozen texts, and sporadic, quick internet browsing. I'm not impressed at all. I close apps when not in use, have only added a couple since getting the phone ten days ago. I have locater off unless I need it, bluetooth off as well.

Why do so many people complain about the Z10 being dead in the morning after being on a good charge the night before ? Am I the only person who charges the phone overnight ? Seems to me the most logical time to do so ....

I don't think there is a 'problem' with the OS.
I regularly get >20 hours on a full charge, with wifi, bluetooth, LTE active and using hotspot. (I don't actually use it as a phone much)
I streamed ~400MB of video via LTE the other day and and it only to about 10-20% of battery.
There may be specific problems with specific phones, or there could be a carrier related issue, or people have done something that is using battery unkown to them (i.e. side loading certain android apps will drain the battery, having many email accounts set to sync constantly, etc)
It is also possible that there are duff batteries out there.
If it was the OS, all Z10 would be doing it, and that does not appear to be the case.

I'm on my second phone. The first one wouldn't last more than four hours despite the level of usage. I watched it, it very consistantly drained at a pace of about 10% every 20-25 minutes. I charged my first phone overnight, went into a meeting (where my phone sat idle on my desk) first thing yesterday morning, and came out of the meeting an hour and fourty-five minutes later with my phone at 55%. Completely unacceptable, I drove to Telus and replaced it.
The new phone doesn't seem much better, which is incredibly discouraging. I let the battery completely drain after picking it up yesterday, and then charged it to 100%. I went out last night to watch the UFC fights, and unplugged the phone at 6:00. By 1:00am I was asking my friends to borrow a Berry charger, despite only using the phone for the odd text or BBM message. While this is an improvement from my first phone, it is still not good enough. I need to be able to get at least 12 hours.
I'm going to see how it goes today. Has anyone called Blackberry IT? Have they acknowledged the frequent problems with these batteries? Am I going to have to get a 3rd phone?
