I'm using Battery Sense because my wife put it on my phone. She had it on her's, but it stopped working for some reason. It seems to be doing OK on my 920. Right now as I'm typing this my prone is discharging at 7.7% with nothing running but Battery App, location on, WIFI on, and auto brightness. Bothersome, when on different days it'll discharge at 0.5%.

    I use Battery Tile.
    Battery Tile | Windows Phone Apps+Games Store (United States)


    I had Battery level for WP8, but Battery Tile is better looking (in my view) and the live tile works better.

    The few that I've tried, I found non of them did better than WP8's own tiny battery icon that one can tap and see, besides they all eat my phone battery (some like crazy, some less so...). Also non of them updates real-time anyway (limitation...) so I see no much sense to waste space on my home screen... my own opinion though...

    I'm starting to feel that very same way. I will keep what I have for the time being.

    Thank you all.

    I don't agree. I think Battery Level For WP8 looks better. Any App created with Metro in mind usually has my attention.

    I deleted Battery Sense, and my battery life has been outstanding ever since. I think I'll stay with the built in meter. Don't have to look at the usage if I get 2 days (+) off a charge.
