    I've made some headway at last. I've just hit 24hr's since the last charge and have 62% battery remaining. That's 2 hours streaming music on the tram (headphones), just over 2hrs voice calls, a dozen texts, 3 email accounts sync when arrive (22 emails total around 12mb), just over an hour with Proshot, perhaps half an hour with Pictomaphone, photo sync with skydrive, time browsing photo's on the phone, and maybe nearly an hour's light browsing on Internet Explorer. Not intensive use by any means, a quiet couple of days as work goes, but it's a marked improvement regardless.

    I have no background tasks running, Wifi On, Bluetooth Off, Tap + Send Off, EE network (3G), Backup Off. I close tabs on exit from IE. I have Drive beta uninstalled and Skype is installed.

    I've had the phone for 2 weeks, and it's been draining very quickly. The only thing I've changed in the last 24 hours is my constant fiddling with the tiles. After I finally settled on a tile arrangement I really like yesterday morning (while on charge), I did a soft reset. Haven't touched the tiles since (apart from to open applications) and here I am, 24hrs later, apparently over 24hrs remaining. I don't know if that's what's helped the battery, but I haven't changed anything else. Perhaps the indicator is out of sync with the battery and will turn off any minute? I'm suspicious and paranoid. I'll post back if that happens.
    Want to swap phones? :P

    With a lot of frustration, I have been experiencing high battery drain also, with the phone staying warm even while idle.
    Following various comments, fixes, could be' on various forums, I hard reset my new, less than one week old, phone.
    I was kind of annoyed, surprised it took a very long time to recover, with a picture of gears churning on the screen.
    Finally it booted up with a message, reset or restore. Wasn't expecting the choice. I chose restore to see what's up.
    There was an amazing amount of stuff to restore.
    After restore completed, my phone was still having battery drain issues. I decided to check out what this back up and restore thing was.
    Pardon me I never read the manual. No need to go into discussion of the process.
    I then chose to disable back up and restore, soft reset, and boom. Battery usage is now at -2%/hr. instead of -12-20% idle.
    Have any of you tried this?

    Have any of you made any progress with this?

    After the Hard Reset, disable back up, restore, my battery life seems to b stabilized. Most importantly, the constantly device warm issue is gone. Touching the back of the phone and feeling cool gives me assurance the device is not running amok..
    I tried posting earlier, was distracted by work.
    Previously, my phone, according to Battery Sense, was consuming between -22% to -11% per hour idle. After the applied procedure, power consumption has been at a high of -11% per hour to as low as -1.1% per hour, with the average being around -2% per hour with use.
    I am thinking Back up, Restore is the culprit. I does not show up in your idle process and is configured on by default.

    I will give this a try today and see if it makes a difference to my phone.
