I've read elsewhere that Blackberry claim up to two days without charge due to the larger battery than the Bold or the Z10. The smaller screen must help too.
I have been struggling to get through a single day with moderate phone use and higher email use. I am on a 4G service.
How has everyone else been getting on?

I use the Blackberry charger bundle, it sacrifices the bundle battery but I survived from like 5pm - 11pm while unplugged LOL ... with 85% battery on the main battery, the backup battery seemed to die..

That doesn't seem that good?
I'm finding the phone now lasts a day at most without charging. The Torch wasn't great either but I was expecting better from the larger Q10 battery. All I can think is something is sucking up power, maybe one of the Apps or 4G?

Hi everyone. I have to say I am NOT impressed with the battery so far? I came here wondering whether I just had a bad battery, but I am not encouraged to see others with the same issue. I have not been using for more than email, phone and a bit of surfing and by the end of the day the battery is virtually drained. I thought the battery life was being touted as one of the big innovastions / selling points?!

Honestly get the Q10 battery pack. Aka battery bundle. Charge both at once and then swap the battery. Mine lasts long enough. I have a charger at work, charger at home(usb cable) and I'm all good. Unlike iphone or android. U can swap battery! BlackBerry wins

Using multiple batteries and chargers is fine, but this is NOT what Blackberry has been touting as one of the main improvements. They promoted an article that Canadian Tire execs are so impressed with the two day battery life. Is this the case or not?? My old Bold (pre touch screen had much longer battery life than I am getting out of the Q10.
