Much Shorter Battery life on Z10 after 10.1 update or while roaming

Updated to 10.1 on my Z10 on Monday and the last three days my battery life hasn't been very good. Almost half of what it used to be. Need to recharge the battery twice a day. What changed?

 

Also from before the update the battery life is considerably less when travelling and the phone is in roaming mode. Anyone else notice this?

Roaming uses more battery.

I'm not sure which built the official update is, but the last leak I was on 10.1.0.1756 (for the Verizon model) had a BAD radio file at least for me, and in addition to other problems it caused poor battery life.

Re: Much Shorter Battery life on Z10 after 10.1 update or while roaming

I am on Koodo in Alberta. Updated my Z10 to BB 10.1 yesterday (Wednesday), battery life has been brutal since the update. Barely made it to noon today, with a full charge this morning. Light browsing and maybe a half hour of listening to music, but most of the time the phone was sitting on my desk with the screen turned off.

Prior to the update, could easily make it to the end of the work day while streaming music over the cell network for 4 or 5 hours.

My phone is also quite warm to touch. Much warmer than prior to the update.

Yes, I have noticed that my phone is much warmer (almost hot) to the touch as well.

 

Looking out for the next update to fix this issue.

Seeing as it is a problem for many, I have sent a tweet to @blackberryhelp on this issue. Hopefully it will get fixed quickly if they get a lot of complaints.

Re: Much Shorter Battery life on Z10 after 10.1 update or while roaming

I am having the same issues,  turned off location, bluetooth, etc. whether wifi or not, the drain is within 4-5 hours, with very limited use.  phone gets hot too while just sitting.  right after i upgraded to 10.1.0.273.  Previously, i was really pleased with my battery life using full function of the BBZ10... iFolk are laughing at me now...

Re: Much Shorter Battery life on Z10 after 10.1 update or while roaming

I'm not sure what has happened, but my battery life has been a lot better since those first couple of days after the update to 10.1

There hasn't been a new update or anything, the only other thing that's changed recently is that streaming music from Groove Shark doesn't work. Most songs will make it half way then just cut out. I've stopped streaming from there since, but am still listening to music locally on my phone.

Anyone else noticing battery life increasing to normal (before update) levels?
