Installed the new OS 10.0.10.90 here in the UK and not noticed any change in battery life for me but i suppose its because im so used to not using the phone as it should be used because of its initial problems, might try and crank up a few settings and seee how we get on?

It's funny: fully charged my Z10 on Friday evening, unplugged it at 10pm.
Low usage: two calls, five mails a day, a little playing around, as the device is new... :-) took some pictures, wireless sync with my mac etc.
On Monday morning I still had 20 %, after over 72 hours!
But... now back to "normal": fully charged till Monday 1pm, little to no use, at 8pm the battery was on 60%, today at 10am on 20% :-(
So far I found two possible culprits:
As I cannot disable the account (I don't want to delete it for testing purposes) I cannot check point 2, but I will disable the mobile net tomorrow to see if this is the battery drainer.

Today's battery performance. From 8am to 6pm to drain the 100%. So average 10% / hr. Very bad imo. The applications i used were openwhatsapp(mostly), BBM, bit of twitter and fb and ard 1 hr of music.
Another thing to note is whenever i start to do something that requires data, the phone gets hot/warm. And thats the time where the battery drops very fast. Example in the morning, when i just plug out of the charger, i reply to a few whatsapp, less than 1 min. Leave it on the table. It starts to heat up. Then battery drop 5% in 5 min. I am guessing its the openwhatsapp, but not confirm.

I'm having similar issues.
Bought the phone a week ago, and it was decent battery life. In fact I had it fully charged at 7am last Tuesday and it lasted until I got back to my hotel at 9:45pm (about 15 hours) with a few 30-45 minute calls, lots of email, some music, bluetooth in the car and testing a few apps.
I fully charged the phone yesterday at noon and by 5:30pm it was at 17% and practically dead when I got home at 6:15 (the full charge only lasted ~6 hours). I charged it fully before going to bed last night at midnight and when I woke up it was dead - absolutely zero usage and it died.
I'm charging it now to test it again today, but this is super frustrating because I love the phone and want to use it.
I'm on AT&T with the latest OS update. I'm wondering if there is a way to find out if there is an app auto starting or not fully closing in the background and causing the drain. the back of the phone has been getting very hot the last two days as well, even just sitting on my desk and not doing anything it'll get hot.
