    I have been wondering if anyone has had a recent issue regarding battery drain. I don't have time to see if any apps have been causing it so I just wanted to ask here really fast.

    Are you running Windows Phone 8 or Windows Phone 8.1 Preview on your 8X?

    I disabled all background tasks but I'm still seeing pretty significant battery drain.

    -Turn off background Tasks you don't need ( be reminded Notifications won't work if you do so )
    -Delete Skype. ( Don't disable it, f**** delete it )
    -make sure your brightness on AUTO, or even better at low
    -Location services OFF
    -Email account syncing to manual or hourly for accounts that don't require immediate attention. Same goes for calendars.
    -Go to your MS account, make sure no services have access to your account, such as twitter or Google.
    -Battery saver.

    That should do it.

    Thanks but I ended up just resetting the phone. It was definitely the email accounts that I had set up. I switched them to fetch all mail instead of the last 2 weeks and then my battery started to suck.... hard.
