I have the 800 and the iPhone 4S before that and both phones had the fast draining battery at first until I found something that seems to drain a lot of battery with out you knowing.
Turn off all FEEDBACK!!!! There are a few places in settings where feedback is enabled by default and if it's on, it's constantly monitoring youre system and sending how you use you're phone data to Microsoft.
The main one is settings - feedback
There is also settings - keyboard- typing settings
Also in Internet explorer sending search data is on, turn off
And anywhere else you can find feedback it's not needed and won't change how the phone works (except give better battery life lol)
Try it I found it doubled my lumia 800 and my iPhone before that.

That's a good point I never even thought of it. You might try posting your thought in this thread:
That way we can add this to the battery saver tips.

I've owned Lumia 710 for 4 weeks. The first 2 weeks I was a heavy user, of course, being a first time WP owner. In the 3rd week I went extremely heavy discovering a game I really liked. I mean I played like there was no tomorrow.
During the first 2 weeks full charge on battery saver estimated time remaining: 1 day 3 hours. Good!
After week 3 to my surprise full charge on battery saver estimated time remaining: 9 hours. What!
So, I started searching the Internet for similar battery life issues and found many. Being a wanna be statistician. Now, what are the variables that can cause a battery life cycle drop so fast.
Too make a long story short.
How to Prolong Lithium-based Batteries - Battery University
During the 4th week I restricted my use on WP and gradually the stats returned to 1Day 3 hours.
Bet you did not know statistics could be so much fun!

"Similar to a mechanical device that wears out faster with heavy use, so also does the depth of discharge (DoD) determine the cycle count. The smaller the depth of discharge, the longer the battery will last. If at all possible, avoid frequent full discharges and charge more often between uses. If full discharges cannot be avoided, try utilizing a larger battery. Partial discharge on Li-ion is fine; there is no memory and the battery does not need periodic full discharge cycles other than to calibrate the fuel gauge on a smart battery."
I think I've said this in EVERY battery-related thread I've seen.

I have been impressed with the battery life of my lumia 900. I am a heavy user. Texts phone calls browsing the web. Looking at my updates in the people hub, the works. And I'm able to go all day without having to charge my phone. I just disabled the feedback listed in the first post and now in looking forward to see if that makes a difference and lasts longer. I'll post back with my findings after a few days.
