in my case the battery life depends on whether im in a good mobile area reception or not. in my office its a 1-2 bar signal and burns battery fast (did this with my old iphone 4s as well), but at home where i get 5 bars i can get 2 days out of it over the weekend. also noticed that whatsapp (yes i know its meant for wp7 but i need it) burns battery.

Have my 820 for 2 weeks now. Was in country vic this past week and while I was there there was very poor cell coverage (about 1 bar if I was lucky) the battery didn't last 1 whole day. Looking at the battery settings it was 100% and indicating 8 hours estimated time remaining. When I got back home charged the battery that night , before I went to bed took it off charge and the next morning it showed 84% and 2 days and 4 hours estimated time remaining.
Hope nokia knows about this issue and put out a fix for it

You may be right about the software issue. I used to have a Nokia N95 8GB and its signal level at my home was always 5 bars, but my new Lumia 820 only shows 2 or 3 bars and if I leave it overnight the battery sometimes drains by around 25%.
Something that I have noticed when installing apps is that a majority of them will not install unless you allow the app to access location data. Until now I have had location data turned on but I am going to trial the battery life with it turned off. I am also trying to minimise the number of apps that use or need a data connection. Every little bit helps, and turning on the battery saver helps when the battery is low too.
