Re: Bold 9900 Battery Life

I'm more comparing the usage rate rather than how long batteries last between 9900 / 9700.

9900 uses 12-15% juice per hour on .540 vs 9700's 7 - 10% per hour under same usage pattern.

True, the 9700 was a hugh difference but small phone, slower processor and bigger battery so all these would help.

Re: Bold 9900 Battery Life

Got your point. Even though it is a marketing thing, I think at the least RIM should get the phone to perform closer to the spec in the website. 9900 and 9700 show really similar spec and i am sure RIM should be professional enough to test their phones under same conditions. So even with bigger screen, smaller battery, etc, 9900 still shouldnt differ from 9700 performance too much.

True, they could have made the battery a bit bigger. Would have helped.

Even better is the fact that Blackberry's own beta test site won't allow me to install the new apps onto OS 7.1 that was thought out well. Smiley Happy

Re: Bold 9900 Battery Life

Is there a release note for each OS version that gets released?

Re: Bold 9900 Battery Life

Dang, RIM is really a mess then....

Looks like they are about to lose the mobile phone game (marketshare dropped 5% from last year) and their tablet are launching exactly well.

These guys are running themselves out of their own business quickly.
