After first full night on charger I have had the phone off for 10 hours. At 73% battery life now.
Have 2 exchange mails pushing 24/7, LTE, and a couple of weather apps. Usage has been moderate, but still thats less that 3%/hour. I'm very pleased so far! Much better than my Galaxy S3.

I've had bad experiences with my lumia 920. I found if I constantly use it even if it's for texting or browsing it won't last more than 5 hours. the standby discharge on 3g/4g is draining at 10% per hour. I've gone through 3 charging cycles already. Should I exchange it? (nb: it also feels pretty hot when I use it)

Mines been getting better and better recently. I took a ton of camera shots after dinner tonight. The battery started around 75% and is still around 65%! Usually nothing drained prior cell phones' battery faster than playing with the camera.

I typically get 2 days out of a battery with medium usage.
Best smartphone i've ever owned. My HD7 would get 1 day with the same usage. Towards the end, my HD7s battery was soo knackered, i was lucky to get 12 hours out of it.

Battery level app was showing 15hrs remaining when fully charged, now ots showing 9hrs 24min when fully charged the past few days. Battery seems to be draining faster than I'd like. I'm closing background tasks and will see how long I can go.

I was having battery life problems. I charged my phone up to 100% and ran the app Battery Discharger. It took a little over 2 hours to discharge. I charged it back up to 100% and since then my battery life has been a lot better. Whatever that's worth.

I am having a similar issue. I discharged/charged it 2 times and it was pretty good. Now it's again back to bad. Drains very fast. Even if i switch off 3g, wifi and block all background tasks, it seems to be draining fast. Is it coz I installed many apps the last few days?

I get about a day and a half of moderate use. This consists of 4-6 hours of music (xbox music streaming and podcasts), lockscreen that updates every hour with weather, 2 email accounts, skype and facebook running in the background, constant rowi and baconreddit checks.
I rarely make phone calls, LTE and WI-FI are always on, location and blue tooth are generally off. If I open an app and the phone gets hot (like the facebook app) I will restart the phone.
EDIT: Nokia Drive also drains the battery, so I don't let it run in the background.

The only thing i noticed was that the first week, it took a while for the phone to settle down. This wasn't explained very well anywhere. Now, my phone, like others mentioned, with moderate use, usually gets put back on charge with 65%-75% charge remaining. With heavy use (where's my water drains the battery quite hard) then it will go lower. I'm yet to get the phone critical. Yesterday, i used it a fair bit, updated the phone, which used a lot of battery power to do so, and used the phone with high brightness (took me a while to realise) and it was at 30% remaining charge.
My previous android phone (SGS1), with battery bugs, it would regularly not survive. When it would decide to crap itself, which was almost a daily occurrence, it would go through a full battery in about 6 hours whilst doing nothing, just in my pocket with the screen off. Battery use had to be monitored, and pulling the battery out to reboot was almost daily. There were numerous times where it didn't last the day, and it was very annoying.
I really like the battery conservation feature in WP8, which allows you to engage until next charge. If you know you're in for a big day, and need your phone to last, this is quite useful, and a really good function in the phone.
