    My 920 lasted 20+ hours under mid-high usage during the day, and with still 28% battery left.
    Impressive result, and definitely a further improvement to GDR2.

    GDR3 is so amazing :)

    I definitely see an improvement. Before I was getting a discharge rate of 2-3% per hour in idle state, now it is less than percent! I'm using Insider app to monitor my battery life. :)

    Reposting here to say that I've not had my L925 on charge for 1 Day 12 Hours and I'm on 55% with 1 Day 1 Hour remaining so a quick calculation of a total of 2 Days 13 Hours off of a single charge.

    In my case (Lu 920 ATT with Vietnamese Rom), GDR3 improved battery life significantly too.

    On Amber, it losed about 3% overnight which is fairly good. But when in use, it drained much faster (eg: 25-30% per hour when surfing the internet via wifi). Now, on GDR3, I surfs continuously via wifi too but the discharged rate is only about 12-15%, which is an improvement of 40-50%. Wow, it's amazing.

    I did not test with others task, but I suppose the results are better too.

    For the first time, I love MS for this very good update :D

    Someone with a 8X on GDR3 who also got a worse battery performance?
    I think HTC have to make a firmware patch for this update..I had the same thing after gdr2. Bad battery perfomance and after an firmware update it was fixed
    Now we wait for the official release

    You're definitely doing something wrong, that's such fast battery drain! Mine WITH drain on GDR1 was about 10-12 hours. Now on GDR3, I'm getting almost 24 hours of runtime.
    Tried everything I can think of to reduce, had 8 background tasks before and reduced them but still no real joy..

    I'm not seeing a drastic change on my 920 yet. Stand-by consumption seems to be better, but I also feel browsing and gaming draws more power than normal. Need more time.

    I have an 8X too and it seems like the bateery is draining even faster now, not that it was great before the update. I am new to WIN8 phone. I use my phone for business purpose and am already missing a lot of small features in WP that i took for granted in my BB8910. How do i perform a firm update on HTC 8x though?

    So how did you use your 925? Just let it idle or use intensively. If that battery life along with much usage, it is so desirable.

    Did you restart? It was the other way for me in GDR3.

    My battery rapidly went down to 72% in 30 mins or so after pulling out of charger. Restarted the phone and bam!, it's back to 93%. It's irritating that Microsoft has still not fixed this problem.

    Yeah, those number are misleading. I get those numbers with my 925, with light use.

    Since I updated to GDR3 my best battery performance was 1 day and 19 hours.

    Kudos to Nokia!

    ever since gdr2, my 8x lasts up to 5 days without recharging. prior to gdr2, I would get a day and a half, maybe 2 days. now, I get at least 4 days and sometimes 5 days. after gdr3, nothing has changed, right now the battery app shows 5 days and 9 hours remaining.

    My Lumia 925 takes now longer to charge and even faster to discharge. I have only 2 emails that sync (which they don't during the night when the phone locks automatically, remember the WiFi sync bug that is still lurking out there?). I also have he brightness set to automatic. My friend has the same issue on his Lumia 920. We both are on developer release of GDR3.

    Actually, brightness on automatic uses more battery power than low. I would sat its probably an app you've dev'd than the gdr3 update since the vast amount of users report an increase in battery life.
