10.3.1 and battery life - veeru789 - 06-05-2015

Coming back to Z10 after long time and was worried about the battery life. Even before I fired up the device I was searching for the extra battery. But surprisingly the battery life has improved a lot. The 10.3.1 update has made all the difference. With medium use, I can make it through the work day with single Charge. BlackBerry's get better with age is true.

Z10STL100-1/10.3.1.2576 is my model

Any other Z10 users enjoying similar battery life? What's your experience.

Wow. That's cool Veers. So you got the Porsche Z10? Please post some pics! How do you like it? Battery the same as the regular Z10?

Z10 STL100-1 is the first Z10, more like a test model. Different OS and Radio files.

Concluded the deal James. Got a great deal. But the phone is India. Will get it when I go there end of this month. Can't wait.

To be frank I always hated the 100-1 model. But with 10.3.1 its not bad at all. Like ageing wine ;)

Veeru, the battery charger bundle is a great accessory for the Z10! It saved my bacon many a time. We'll with the investment.

NC,
I agree and am glad I didn't loose mine after upgrading to Z30 and then passport. But after 10.3.1 I hardly use the charger bundle. I make it through the work day quite comfortably. And if required charge the phone of 15-20 mins and should be good for rest of the night.

I'm loving the battery enhancements in 10.3.1.

I do find 10.3.1 is noticeably slower than the previou update. Not slow enough to hinder the experience. Once your in the app it's fine and works smoothly but certain apps like the music player would seem slower and the assistant can be a bit of a pain to start typing in.


I also find it a little buggier. I've experienced a few crashes and pauses since updating.

Ultimately, I'm glad I updated because what I have now, I love! The better browsing experience, the camera module, the new look icons and even the assistant is nice.


10.3.1 is awesome and I'm glad it came to the z10

I would also like to note that the charger battery for my z10 is still an important part of my set up.

One of the best accessories (that wasn't a rort) I bought for my z10 as I would need to change the battery at least once a day.

I am a little envious of those with longer battery life as I don't always have my charger bundle on me.


RE: 10.3.1 and battery life - veeru789 - 12-05-2015

Agree Zensen. I experienced the crash couple of times. But over all the performance has improved a lot. The difference is noticeable on a STL 100-1 more.
