    I did a reset on my phone twice and I dont see any improvements.
    If somone can recommend how can I reflash my phone using Nokia Utility considering the fact that I installed GDR 3 and Amber Update.
    I have a Lumia 920 Black Color from ATT
    Any other suggestions are welcomed

    I like Nokia's "Battery Pro+" app better.
    And for me, my battery life has been great, even better after the dev preview GDR3 update!

    No improvement for me. Still only getting 12 hours-14 hours out of it on low usage.

    Battery life seems to have improved. I'm noticing some apps not draining battery as quickly, consumption rate appears about the same using system apps (email, etc.). The battery has also cooled down substantially while playing games and music.

    Battery has become much worse on my 920. Wasnt great before (max 15hours), but now it at least drains 10-15% per hour even if I dont use it.

    The only app showing up in app store under that name is not made by Nokia.

    I'm probably just being paranoid, but even though this app looks useful, I can't bring myself to use a battery app that needs owner identity.

    While speed has improved a lot, I do have to say battery life has gone down for me. I used to average 24~32 hours of average usuage, but now I seem to be regularly running at 16~20 hours between a charge. Still decent, but nowhere near as good as it used to be. I'm not complaining though, the extra features in GDR3 (especially being able to kill apps through multi tasking) is more than worth it.

    I experience a significant improvement of battery life on my 925.

    Off the charger: 5.30am
    Battery life at 8pm:
    • GDR2: 30%
    • GDR3: 50%

    My usage hasn't changed at all and it's been several days like that.

    The last few days the battery life on my 920 (uk unlocked variant) has gone pretty bad. No apps running in the background and just did quite a lot of updates of apps in the past days.. Was basically the same as GDR2 in the first few weeks but now it's going down by 15-20% per hour... Anyone experienced such a sudden change recently?

    Nope. Mine remains great.

    Amber significantly improved my L820 battery life, but GDR3 seems to have worsen it. The battery had emptied from 85% to 20% or lower just sitting idle, with only the WiFi on, in about 7 hours. I was also using Tap to Wake and Glance Screen + Glance Beta App, but still.

    On Amber, even without using the device, even with all the stuff on and at least 10h+ on WiFi at home and 2G connection on at all times, I would still get at least 1.5 days of usage at least. Now ... o_O.

    I need to see these days if the situation improves. Maybe it's just temporary. (if not I'll either get another 1800 mah battery or that beefy 3600 one)

    Managed to get to the end of my battery problem. Apparently my email (gmail account) was constantly syncing. Managed to get that onto manual sync and battery life is great. Now I deleted the gmail account completely from my phone and battery is only down 21% in 7 hours. Might try add the gmail account again later on to check if it falls into the same loop. Coincidentally I had noted that data sense was marking gmail as the top data user (not at all normal with GDR2) since the GDR3 update so this constant syncing could have been going on since I updated. Only affected battery life for the past three days though.
