Re: Bold 9900 Battery Life


Sorry, yes, I just installed and left it. Apart from putting the battery logo on my home screen.

I did take it off for an afternoon earlier in the week. Then after seeing the graph change I put it back on again.

Re: Bold 9900 Battery Life

Some newer data- with the B+ apps, 7.1.0.190, when I'm on Whatsapp full time (as in 100%) for one hour and do nothing else, the batt drain rate is 16%.

Anyone seeing similar (as bad) drainage with 7.1.0.190?

Re: Bold 9900 Battery Life

Had a good play with the 9900 today.  Really good feeling in the hand.  But BOY do I wish they kept the left Convenience Button that the other BBs have.  To not have that is unforgiveable.

 

If you upgrade from the 8520 to the 9900 - the build quality and what it does are fantastic, but if you hit that button 20-30 times a day to access BBM, to lose that button.... heavens.

 

Not happy!

Re: Bold 9900 Battery Life


@www- only time I have had that sort of drain is browsing for an hour or so. Heavy data usage.

@simon- can understand your loss, I used it for locking the phone, as I do with my 8520. Instead I moved the lock icon up to the top on the home screen. Also I have an nfc smartcard setup and macro to lock the screen if I swipe over my wallet. Also I use a belt holster which also locks the screen on insertion.

There are apps that would let you setup one of the media keys as a shortcut for bbm etc.

Re: Bold 9900 Battery Life

Well, now it's up to 18% drainage rate (per hour rate) with solid whatsapp (100%, every second in the hour).

Whatsapp utilize data, correct? If so then that's as heavy as one can get.

But seem like when I'm on the phone, the rate is even higher. But the phone is in 'GSM' mode when I'm talking on the phone (no data transmission possible at all).

Re: Bold 9900 Battery Life

Here's a question very "on topic"...........
My 8520 charges from 'reserve' to full very very quickly. So not bothered if it runs low.
How quickly does the 9900 charge up from red/orange to max?
