    Hey guys, i recently got a new Lumia 1520 and I have experienced that the battery goes empty way too fast. WhatsApp has the most usage. But that should not bother a 3400mAh Battery. I have only charged it 3 times, could it be the case that the battery has to be charged more often to work complete? (sry for bad English)

    Are you on developer preview? And it would be easier to give an advice with the battery saver screenshots.

    You can make screenshots by pressing volume up and power button at the same time

    You can use internet browser version of the forums on your phone to upload photos.

    I mean there is a difference between the battery if this monster and the iPhone 4 but I guess I expected too much. And the fact that WhatsApp needs alot of battery doesn't help.

    Well it's not too bad, but if you don't like it, you can increase the battery life by turning off location, bluetooth, nfc, double tap to wake the phone, modifying the glance settings, the advanced brightness settings, where you can choose how bright are low, medium and high levels. Also check how often your microsoft and other accounts synchronize, it would be better to set it at least on 15 minutes, though 30 would be better. Of course it is still important for you to show your battery saver screenshots.

    Occasionally I find on other Windows phones you have to power down the phone when off power, wait 30 seconds and power on to kill some background task or firmware bug that drains the battery. Not sure if 1520 suffers from that particular issue if the battery is draining faster than expected.

    A soft reset would be better than power down.

    I activated manual refresh on emails and stuff which seemed to help. I don't have the option to adjust how bright the 3 levels if brightness are.

    It should be in your Display settings category

    How long is your battery actually lasting? My 1520 will usually last well over 1 1/2 days on a charge with moderate to heavy use.
