    I cant help it but wonder if the L521 battery is really that good, do I have the right setting or I'm I just lucky? I say so because my phone is showing some amazingly good battery times. I charge it before bed and take it off from charger and set it on battery save mode since I don't need updates when sleeping. When I wake up the meter shows 99% or a couple of times even 100%. And then I take it off battery save and start using it normally as I usually do and by that I mean several calls, web browsing and some other apps all while doing background updates. By around noon it still about 80%. I dont want to be technical here but I know a phone with good battery when I use one. Before buying this phone I read all kinds of negative reviews about how terrible the L521 battery is and honestly I was concerned. But now that I am using it in real times I must say that I am very happy with the kind of result I am getting right now (might change I dont know) and wonder what other people are getting. Maybe its because I dont use it to play games or spend hours watching videos.

    Alright another satisfied customer!

    Both of the 521's we use do well on their batteries.
    Most times at least 9-12 hours of use per day.
    Not heavy users here however.

    We also get excellent battery life. We don't use it that intensively, but it seems like it's almost as good as our old low tech flip phone.

    My new favorite smartphone ever is my Blackberry Q10, but when I need incredible battery life I put my sim card back in to my second favorite smartphone, my 521. I was working on a movie set last fall, and therefore had no access to "juice". On the last day I spent most of the 10 hours I was there sitting around by myself, with nothing to do but goof off on my phone. I would say I put in a solid 7 hours of web surfing and other activities, and when it was over I still had 30-something percent left. If Nokia released one with a good physical keyboard I would sell my Blackberry the next day, and I actually like the Blackberry OS a bit more.
