As with a lot of people on here, my phone has HORRIBLE battery life ever since the Portico update. I used to get on average 18 hours of battery life, but now I am getting 10 or so if I'm lucky. Also, it seems the phone gets decent battery life until it hits the 40% mark, and then it drains like nothing. My phone is constantly dying overnight just sitting on standby. Last night it had around 90% when I went to bed, and 10 hours later (because the alarm didn't go off), I woke up to a dead phone. Like I said, before the update, it was working great. I didn't have to worry about the phone dying throughout the day. Now, every night I have to keep it charging or else it will die and the alarm won't go off in the morning. I bought my phone through Best Buy back in November, so it is out of the 30 day window to return it there. Am I still able to swap the phone through Nokia or am I out of luck until the next update? I love the phone, but that last update killed it. The top of my phone gets so hot after a little use and then the battery just starts diminishing. Any help would be great on what to do.
