    I came from an android, Drop my phone and broke it. Love android but curious about WP8.

    I just got this 920 as a temp phone. Wanted to try a new OS out. Will have this phone till the note 3 come out, unless WP can sway me from android.

    Seem like theres all kinds of problem for this phone. What should i watch out for? how do i fix it?

    Kinda like the battery, seem like a hit or miss. How long does it last on 1 full charge to consider as normal?

    Any tips or tricks would be appreciate it. Thanks!

    1 full charge, consider NFC off, background task to minimum, 3 mailbox active sync and replying occasionally, whatsapp on and some chat, WiFi always on with 1hr active web surf, LTE 30min web surf, 45min music, 30min call, 20+ text, some chatting with fb, people hub checking, should last about 8-9hrs, die at 10th hr.

    I never leave my WiFi on. If you have constant access turn WiFi on and disable data. WiFi is a huge drain. I get anywhere from 14-26 hours depending on games I play that day.
