I guess everybody is assuming we are talking about the Jolla Phone 1

With light usage, easily 48 hours.

48 hours is really the upper limit, with Aliendalvik switched off, no web browsing, no music, no camera, few phone calls. In other words: unsmart phone usage.

@objectifnul no, sometimes I have mine running for 3-4 days without plugging in. Of course not under heavy usage, but with Aliendalvik, messaging, email, browsing, phone calls.

Here you'll find official figures.

My Jolla - using quite often for browsing and messaging - lasts roughly 1,5 days.

About a day i'd say. Depends on what you do, the apps you use, etc.. but longer than android devices with same or about the same amount of mAh.

As already said, it depends on your usage. You can get more info about your device's lifetime by installing a "Hunger Meter" app from Jolla store. Also you may check this page for some additional Jolla-specific power consumption details.

My battery consumption (but not my usage patterns) has doubled since updating to release 9

For me, alien dalvik and data connection always on, would say midrange usage of display and some browser using 1,5 up to 2 days.

But don´t forget the quality of network connection. In rural areas, mountains or if you are driving in car or train, your phone is always searching for connection and causes higher power consumption.

Since I´ve removed the SIMcard from my old android phone and use it only 2 or 3 times a week, the battery lives 3 weeks with WLAN always on ;)

Erratic is the best way to describe it. Connectivity (particularly mobile data and reacquiring lost network) and apps getting stuck in high usage states are major problems and tend to crush battery life to unacceptable levels when they occur. If you have train (or car) journeys, are roaming, or are in an area with poor reception, you can absolutely expect to have to charge the phone 3x a day, and this not with heavy usage. If you're mainly using wifi, avoid the native browser and use Android Firefox and completely ignore the phone / put it in flight mode when it's freaking out due to poor reception, you can get through a day without issue. The problem is, you're unlikely to get through a day without issue if you are fairly mobile and an active user. If battery life is important to you, you need to take a mobile recharging pack with you with this phone (I do). Supposedly there will be a lot of fixes to connectivity in updates 10 and 11; I'll remain sceptical until they land and actually fix things.

Typically, I'd say endurance is 1/3rd of my Sony Z3 Compact. Maybe 1/10th in poor reception areas, or 1/5th for heavy usage of mobile data.

It really depends on your usage pattern. I use my Jolla mostly as a phone, only activating mobile network and WLAN if needed and opted for a low display brightness - for me this results in 2 to 7 days of battery lifetime.

10 hours 15 minutes without pushing it, so not enough.

A bit longer than BlackBerry Z10, but there's the Battery Charger Bundle for the Z10, so you can actually do better than with many other phones, although it feels kludgy to swap the battery every day (still rules over integrated). Also, if you forget to charge your phone, most of the times the spare will be ready (and then you recharge later the other one for the evening without wallhugging your phone).

If you remember to reboot immediately after using hotspot early, you can add about 45 minutes of Firefox on cellular (not media heavy).

However, you can play an entire normal album offline with Deezer without screen and in flight mode with the battery at 8%.

It depends on your usage. It is generally better than on Android-devices.

It is? So Android users can not get pass one day? I owned an Android, but very limited one which I did not use in same way as Jolla. But battery did last up to 4-5 days.

peerchemist ( 2014-12-04 21:34:27 +0200 )edit

My battery lasts about 5 days with (what I consider) normal usage. I don't use the Android compatibility.

nthn ( 2014-12-04 22:58:59 +0200 )edit

My Jolla lasted almost two weeks when it was laying on the table and was used randomly :) You can't really compare apples and oranges, but in general Sailfish should be lighter than Android because c++ is more efficient than Java.

TemeV ( 2014-12-04 23:02:32 +0200 )edit

@TemeV It is always code, not languages. You can write crappy code in any language. Some make it easier, some more difficult for you. Let's agree that Android's DalvikVM is bad and slow in comparison to the JVM. Now with ART I am waiting for the figures.

sidv ( 2014-12-04 23:08:30 +0200 )edit

@TemeV "c++ is more efficient than Java" Don't know about implementations in mobiles, but in PC world this is not exactly true.
