    I've only gotten this phone for 3 days now but the battery is worrying. There are only 3 apps which are currently running a background agent (amazing weather, twabbit, battery widget) but during night it goes from 100% to around 85% in around 8 hours of standby. As a comparison my iPhone would drain only around 5% in the same time. So what could be causing this? I have NFC disabled btw.

    Well I've read NFC is a big one. Some searching also says to limit your data usage to 3G (though that option isn't on my phone).

    I personally have Bluetooth and WiFi off unless I'm using it, automatic brightness, and use battery saver when push isn't necessary. I can usually make it through the day but more often than not I'll be close to dead near quitting time (I stream a lot).

    Still iPhone is beating my Lumia 920 in battery life even with those adjustments and similar usage.

    Though I'm sure some of these cats have better tips. Hope it helps.

    There is no pattern that is universally applicable. Wait for the OS fix.
