    Battery Life

    Advertisement



    How does everyone think the battery life is for this phone? I took mine off the charger at 930 this a.m. And it's 5 o'clock now, and I only have one bar left.

    I won't lie, I use a cellphone VERY heavily, but this is not good! Otherwise that is my only complaint about this slick little phone! Let's hear some feedback please!

    Re: Battery Life

    If your heavy on the phone all the time get another battery period!!! I would say that with normal use as in just emails and a little web you will have 30-40% at the end of the day. Once you start making calls you can watch it go down and down and down. I mostly use email and web and maybe 3-4 5 minute calls and im at 40% at 9pm and starting my day at 9am. Its not the best its not the worst battery they have made. Also BB messenger and any other IM app will eat up battery fast. I hope they come out with an extended battery but I dont see that for a while. Make sure you drain your battery all the way down once and charge it over night after that keep topping it off as much as you can.

    if you leave a lot of app running at the same that that also helps drain the battery a lot.

    Yeah, I've noticed that if you actually close the camera app., that helps a lot!

    I see an improvement over the battery of the 8700g versus the Pearl. I had to charge the 8700g 3 times a day with heavy usage and an extended battery was never released for the 8700g.

    Re: Battery Life

    I have a pearl and the battery life is okay. Better then the phone I had before (nextel i930). But for me, I plug in my usb cable when I'm at my desk at work so its usually charged up.
    Love my first BlackBerry (Pearl)!

    Re: Battery Life

    The thing that drains mine the most is the bluetooth connection I have with my headset. I have it on all day. But I think the battery life is pretty consistent with the 8700. But with all the media features I use on this, I cant complain. Plus I use my phone for 4000 minutes a month.

    Re: Battery Life

    Strange to see all the different battery usage issues. The pearl is my third BB and the best BY FAR.

    I'm a very, very heavy email and sms user -- (300+ emails read a day, 50+ sent) and a light phone user (maybe 6 or 7 calls of 5 minutes a day) and I consistently get 3+ days of battery. This is at least twice as good as my 7100.

    Wow! How often do you use the other features, such as Bluetooth or the camera?

    Re: Battery Life

    I was thinking the pearls battery would last longer if it were in a case or pouch with a magnet I'm comming from the 8700g and the battery on that phone would last until the next day for me but I don't know if you folks are experiencing theese issues with without a case.

    The software update for the pearl will help. I've only had it a few days and I already see a noticeable difference.

    Re: Battery Life

    The 8100 battery life was one of the PRIMARY reasons why I got the phone. It just doesn't get much better than this. From my experience anyway. I also say it lasts about 3 days with heavy use. If I start using chat programs that's when it starts to go down quite a bit but I've had to deal with the poor battery of SK3, so this was a big boost for me. I love it!
