When a Full Day’s Battery Life Still Isn’t Enough

BlackBerry Fact Check

Having a mobile device with battery life that gets you through an entire work day is an absolute must, as “wall huggers” know all too well. As another company who is out to make wall hugging a thing of the past, Samsung touted the benefits of the battery life of its Galaxy S5 in a recent “Samsung at Work” blog post.

As you can see, their stats seem good – but BlackBerry can do better:

“Ultra Power Saving Mode saves and extends battery life by changing the device’s screen to black and white and shutting down all unnecessary features to minimize battery consumption. In Ultra Power Saving Mode, you can benefit from over 24 hours’ standby time with just 10 per cent battery life, ensuring that you never miss a beat.”

Compare this to the battery life of the BlackBerry Z30. Without enabling any of the battery life management features, the BlackBerry Z30 has:

  • Up to 25 hours mixed use
  • Up to 18 hours talk time (UMTS)
  • Up to 16 days standby time

With better battery life than the Samsung Galaxy S5, BlackBerry Z30 owners use their device to remain productive throughout the business day and stream their favorite TV show or movie during the commute to and from the office. But don’t just take our #BBFactCheck for it; here is what some BlackBerry Z30 users are saying about battery life on Twitter:

As you can see, the BlackBerry Z30 is the right device for users who need the right productivity tools supported by a battery that will last them through more than an entire day. And that’s a fact.
