This phone get hot every time i use it and the battery run down so fast, i observed that the second day i bought it, went back for a change but i was denied of that. It so annoying that after spending such amount of money to buy a bb it becomes a problem. Too bad.
I have had the bb 8520 then I switched to this one expecting a major upgrade but I found out that the battery is way worse than the 8520 even if I switch my 3G,close all apps and lower screen brightness to lowest possible.I have used the 9300 for a few months and it freezes less than the 9360 and has better battery despite being an older model.The 9360 also overheats while charging which undoubtably is damaging the phone.I am 15 years old and the only reason I still use a bb is because I get free Internet and Bbm.Horrible Phone!
phone gets really hot while charging and while bbming or facebooking for 2 minutes !!!
its very annoying

I really want this phone :( If 7.1 still doesn't improve battery life, maybe will just buy 1600 mAh. I just red it on the forum that 1600 mAh is good, but i don't know if it's highly recommended! So confusing! :( i'm from philippines .

Majority say the battery is bad while many think its ok. What I am saying is, if this phone's battery can not last you a whole day, there is something you are doing wrong with the phone, like leaving so many applications you don't use on etc. USE 3G ONLY WHEN U NEED TO DOWNLOAD. Edge is enough for chatting mailing facebooking and others.

When your battery life only last 6 hours it is ridiculous. Not all smart phones are the same. I have a IPhone 4 and my battery lasts at least a full day with using it very hard. Do not post comments which are helping people.
I got 1 yesterday and so far the phone has been working great, its running OS7.1 and battery lasts quite long, so far no problems
