Our Lumia is fairly new(barely few months old), and from the past few days there is a very serious problem of battery drain. Even talking on the phone for few minutes (no wifi/data) drains the battery by 10%
Even without using WIFI or DATA at all and few calls battery lasts 14-15 hours on full charge.
Is there a way to start debugging.
If not, maybe a factory reset will help. How to do factory reset.

It could be normal, I don't know, but it could also be a bad battery. If you want to do a factory reset, go to Settings => About => Reset phone.

Well, talking uses up a lot of battery. I have WiFi, Bluetooth, location and data on all of the time, but I don't make many calls and don't use things like Facebook. My battery lasts 2+ days.
There are several free battery apps that will chart your usage. It might help determine when this is happening.Lumia 920. Microsoft Surface 2.

Okay, I took out battery and re-insterted it. Problem solved.
However, I would love to have a program like betterbatterystats of android which would actually tell me what is causing the wakelock.
As for WhatsApp, its not even installed. None of the silly messenger programs are installed. Phone is used for calling, and web surfing and video watching.
Social aspect is limited to facebook only.
