Battery Power

Absolutely love the phone, but the battery life sucks! I unplug it at 7am, and then have to plug it back in at 9 pm when I go to bed, because it is just about finished.

Anyone else experiencing the same thing, or have any pointers on how to fix this problem? I thought it could stand by for 13 days.....I am barely getting 13 hours.

Re: Battery Power

Here is what I got yesterday:


Full charge at 11am.


WIFI connected, Bluetooth on (connected to PB)


Several BBMs, Text msgs, Emails etc.

No phone calls


Played for about an hour with hotspot which drains power pretty good.


Downloaded an app.


Briefly left WIFI and onto 4G network (30 minutes). Activated maps during this for about 5 min.


Set to night mode at about 10pm


Up at about 6am


Left WIFI connection, onto LTE network

Bluetooth connected to car


several messages (BBM,txt, email)


Battery showed 0% at about 10am (phone still running, but I shut it off)


So about 23 hours.
