try turning off toggle and then rebooting. I believe i did that and it fixed. When if first did it, i changed from automatic to 3g, i would go back and see it would be on automatic again. I think i toggled the toggle thing off and then rebooted and then 3g stayed.

I was sick over the weekend so after I charged my phone Friday night, I didn't charge it the entire weekend again including Monday (so a total of 3 days). I did maybe an hour worth of phone calls, maybe 3 hours of web browsing, no video games, and maybe one youtube video. I was on WiFi (Wireless N @ 5GHZ instead of 2.4GHZ), GPS is enabled, NFC is disabled, Bluetooth off, AT&T LTE constant 4 bars, Location on, Phone tracking on. Background tasks were: Chase Mobile, Gasbuddy, Metrotube, Weather, and Nokia Drive was BLOCKED.
Was @5% by the time I went to charge Monday night after ~60 hours.
On the other hand, I noticed my phone was a bit warm the next day after getting off the metro and saw it had drained 20% in 2 hours. Didn't see the GPS symbol on tho, did a quick restart, and was on my way with 40% at the end of the night.

Ok I think it's definitely a software issue. After messing around with the 3g/4g settings and getting everything back to normal (which included several reboots) I noticed it sat on the same percentage for 3 1/2 hours.
So I guess I will just get into a habit of restarting the phone daily.

I thought I had my problem solved by rebooting my phone but then today I have had my phone off the charger for 17 minutes and my phone has dropped from 100% down to 80% in those 17 minutes. I tried rebooting to kill any programs running but it's still draining that fast afterwards.

I'm so depressed about my battery life. Used to get some longer times with my iPhone.
Does whatsapp REALLY make a difference in battery life ? If so .. I'm deleting it..

My battery is awesome...when I reboot it after I take it off the charge. I've tried draining it all the way down naturally and with the battery discharger app. Neither helped the cause. An easy bug to fix, since a reboot takes a minute, but still frustrating. Pre-reboot, 4% per hour on idle. After reboot, 1%.

My first couple of weeks was rough. First week or so i could not get more than 6-7 hours. I have Lumia 920 since Dec 13th, and last week my battery life is much better. Sometimes I can go two full days without a charge, all with using Whatsapp and Viber frequently, 25-30 regular text messages a day, 30 min of talk time, location on, brightness on medium, int explorer 1 hour, and WP central and store usage few times a day. I really cannot complain now, but it took some time to get to this point.
Today I had an interesting case with battery life. Battery was at 47% then I turned the phone off and immediately on and it dropped to 35%. I kept using it and it went down to 16%. I turned it off again for a couple of hours and when I turned back on percentage was at 28%. Anyone had a similar case?

I noticed that the network settings have a BIG impact on battery drainage. leaving it off the charger usually drains about 6-7% in 9 hours without usage and a mediocre connection. With a poor connection this rocketed to to about 18% overnight (say 9 nine hours).
When playing music, wifi on, and good network connection, the battery doesn't drain that much about 2 % in an hour. Streaming music will drain a bit more about 6-10%
Certain chatting apps drain hugely i noticed that whatsapp will drain about 30% in an hour. using whatsapp and ebuddy simultaneously will use about 47%!!!
Dialling back the connection speed to max 2G, no whatsapp, several hours of screen time, wifi turned on, will give me around 26 hours.
Performance stretches a lot further if i turn on battery.

My carrier has rubbish coverage even when it says it is UK's largest network and covers 99% area. The drain we all have been talking about is not only due to background tasks but every 30 mins when phone wakes up, depending on where you are, your network coverage, you consume battery. Some apps just do this all the time - whatsapp.
By using it as dumb phone, at least i know its not the OS or battery. Its ****ty developers and my carrier masts.

I charge mine during the night and then use it for 2 days (7am to around midnight the day after so around 41 hours), usually around 20-40% left by then depending on how much I used it and for what. If I am just in standby I can usually get it to use around 1% per hour (sometimes less depending on my signal strength). I got LTE turned on at all times and never use wifi.

I've been experiencing similar problems with my phone running out of juice by 6pm however last night I ran my L920 down until it said goodbye and switched off. I then waited 1 minute and switched it back on, it tried to boot up and failed so I tried again this time it came on and stayed on for further hour of full use. the funny thing is that when I looked at the battery indicator it said 0% but under time since last charge it said 134 days and 17 hours!!! Today I have much better battery results and now after approx 5 hours of normal usage (email set to 'as items arrive' on 3 accounts, location on etc.) I have only dropped to 84% so am hopeful that I will get similar results to my Titan which would go about 16-18 hours without charge. It hasn't been heating up this morning either. Hope it helps

i had charged my lumia overnight for about 10 hours. i took it off the charger at 1:30 pm. By 9:00, charge was down to 10%.
I had been surfing the net, downloading apps for quite a long time. Played games for about 1 hour, music for like 10 minutes, whatsapp for about an hour. 3g or wifi was on throughout the period. Basically I had been using the phone pretty much for the 7 hours, but mainly browsing and stuff. Is this charge drop normal? Looks pretty bad to me.
I had tried draining and recharging it overnight 3 times now. Don't see much of a difference.
