For some of the people who have been experiencing battery troubles give them an honest couple of runs. If not speak to your carrier. Some problems are to be expected and the carriers and blackberry have been amazing with swapping them out. This one has been great, battery life does in fact improve as the phone learns your typing etc and does less scanning in the background. The first charge on my first phone lasted just over 5 hours but that is with initializing all apps, setting up phone, and lots of surfing with a new phone. I now get an average of 11 hours and I am charging at 25 %. I plan to do a full drain intermittently and imagine I would get 12-15 hrs from that. I Cannot wait for the external charger. and spare battery, as with that if you get a good system going and you will never be glued to a wall again. Have used alot of phones and never thought i would want to go back to an all touch screen but this is one bad a$$ phone. Thank you blackberry!!!!!!!!

Personally speaking, I find this whole thing of the battery needing conditioning and learning to be nothing more than wishful thinking ... I've had various iPhones over the past 4 years and never experienced this level of frustration on a brand new model.
UPS delivered my replacement Z10 phone today to replace my original ... but now only to find BlackBerry LINK has a bug in it and won't do a back-up of the phone ... so I am STILL stuck pulling the battery or rebooting the phone 5-6 times a day.
So if I end up having to load all my contacts and information in this new replacement Z10 and experience this same **bleep**, I think I am more or less done ...

if you are having heat issues ,,, there is a problem. So, in a nutshell here is what I did,,,
1. removed my sd card from phone and copied all files to the computer, I then re inserted the SD card and had the phone format it, then I removed it, copied all the files back to it, and re insterted it into the phone. Issue one resolved
2, load the new software to the phone, you can find it on crackberry, leaked OS for BB Z10
all problems fixed, I am getting the same if not more battery life then I was in my tourch,,, I am a heavy user, wifi, bluetooth, phone, data, music, and I go from 7am to apprx 3pm before I need a good charge, then I charge for about 1 hr, full charge and when I hit the bed, its still at about 70 percent,,,
hope this helps

Hi borsodi can i ask what OS version did you install please? was it the 10.0.10.261 if so how are you getting on with it and what differences have you seen etc? I only ask as i have found none so far or any Bug! Fixes either which is making me think its not actually doing anything to help!
