    Battery apps such as "Battery" allow you to monitor your average battery burn rate in % per hour. Please share yours!
    The number is most accurate at the end of the day before you begin recharging, averaging all day use.
    it would be helpful to drop a line here too, so we know what phone you have.

    For me: HTC 8X 16GB ATT @ 3% / Hour

    Today it is averaging about 3.6%. That includes light use during the day along with about 25 minutes of GPS use (My Commute) in the morning about about 35 minutes of GPS use this evening.

    That's pretty good. What is your phone?

    i am at about 1.7% on my htc 8s.

    need to mention, comparison can get bit vague without knowing every person's usage details...

    that shows how much more efficient WiFi is vs cell radio ...
    920 appears pretty efficient overall ...

    it heavily depends on the number of bars you get in an area. if you're in a low or no signal area it will drain like crazy. if you're in a 5-bar LTE area it'll usually be around 1.45% for me

    WTF 80% gone in 3 hrs in airplane mode. The LUMIA 820 was left in my locker doing nothing. Getting really annoyed with this. Noticed Bing search was open. Could this be the reason?

    I usually grab my phone off the wireless charger (which is EXCELLENT btw) at about 6:30AM. I work inner city Columbia, SC so I always have a 4G signal. I text, email (Exchange and GMail), get notifications, browse the internet, download apps, read the news, check weather, mess with apps, text some more, and make maybe 1 or 2 phone calls throughout the workday. I also leave my WiFi on so that I get onto my WiFi network when I get home at about 4:30PM. Here are my stats:

    3.4% daily
    2.7% weekly

    I get about 4.5% recently on my 8x. I would say 5% is reasonable. Compare it to the poll results.

    On my HTC 8x, I get around 4-5% per hour. That's with the WiFi on, brightness is at lowest and no data connection, no Bluetooth, no location.
