I actually love the Glance feature, but I have it set to "peek" mode which just comes on when you trigger the proximity sensor. I also have it set to Night Mode all day long, which is an awesome dark red font color. My battery life is still great.

I doubt serious battery issues have anything to do with double tap or glance. I have both active and easily get 20+ hours of battery life. BUT I sit on a strong WiFi signal all day (zero bars where I work) and just use email, Twitter, a weather app and some web surfing.

I have found my 1020 to be warm a few times, after not being used for 15+ minutes, and serious battery drain when that happened. The only thing I could find amiss was the browser was stuck loading a page, but it was in the background. (The page also happened to be WPCentral...runs horribly on a phone. And no, I do not like using the app.) I can't say that was the cause, or not. Just the only thing I was able to observe.

I have found on my 920, random black photos and my battery drained because my pants have a phone sized pocket, in my side pocket. (stick with me) and the pocket presses on the camera button and takes a crap load of photos and kills battery.

I just find the battery life on my 925 to be mediocre at best, if I start really using it alot it drains fairly quickly, but I have double tap to Wake up because as someone else just said the power button is very well placed on these phones anyway. However glace is a feature that I keep on PEEK all the time and love this feature and have no noticed any adverse effects on my battery

I have Glance and Double Tap both on (and have since I got the phone). I'm currently sitting at 11% remaining and I last charged it exactly 24 hours ago so I'm not sure what everyone else's expectations are but I'm really pleased with the battery life and I don't think Glance or Double Tap are causing problems, at least not in my case.

Working at a T-Mobile store, I use my phone constantly. That's dozens of text messages, telephone calls, not to mention all of my live tiles, etc. In addition to that, every setting on my phone, save Internet Sharing is turned on. Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Glance, Double Tap, Tap to Share, etc. My phone has been off of the charger for 15 hours, according to Battery Saver, with an estimated 5 hours left.
Yesterday, or maybe the day before, I went to bed with my phone at 18 hours off of the charger and still at 38%. I get stellar battery life out of this thing. Now, did my 810 go a little longer? Yep. But, considering the larger AMOLED screen, set to Medium Brightness, I can cope with a few hours less.

Hey ! Guys,
Need your advice and feedback...
I have been using my new 925 for close to 1week, I also noticed the battery drains faster than my previous 900.
Also, after being fully charged, the "Estimated time remaining" usually displayed a range between 11-13 hours.
Is this normal or do I have a defective built-in battery ?!?! I am seriously thinking about going back to the retailer for an exchange.
What's your thought ? Thanks
PS. Overall, I my 925Sent from my Windows 8.1 Vivotab Smart Tablet PC

Also I never have WiFi or Bluetooth on when not in use, I did the same thing withmy 920 although I found my 920 to have better battery life than my 925 desppite the whole OLED power saving saying.......Hope that helps

Anyway, thanks for the response. It kind of helped to reassure me that at least I am not getting a defective 925.Sent from my Windows 8.1 Vivotab Smart Tablet PC

I don't think you're mistaken, I probably misunderstood. I was talking about the "keep WiFi on when screen times out" setting. I believe you're referring to the "automatically connect to WiFi hotspots" setting, which I would personally disable as well. I feel that any type of constant signal hunting, whether cellular or WiFi, should try and be avoided.
