    Is it just me or does the spotify app really drain the battery much faster. I know it is beta, but after installing the spotify app it seems like my battery drains way too fast. Almost like the same problem we had we nokia drive and skype a while back.

    i think its you, my 920 is fine with battery although i heard somewhere in these forums that if you delete any battery apps, and drain the battery completely on your phone it will increase your battery. i tried it yesterday and today i saw a 30% increase in my battery so if you want to give that a try you should :)

    I don't think its just you. I downloaded the spotify app, and made an offline playlist of about 350 songs. When i listen to it on random, i'll get maybe 3 hours with my phone. If it's running in the background, it seems to drain it down even more.
