    The first ding is the easiest as it's now officially broken in and ready for work and play.

    Drive + is not Lumia exclusive any longer. I downloaded it to my HD LTE a couple of months ago...

    Drive + is having general store issues and should return. I can't even find Here or Drive on my 1520 in the store.

    I'm not exactly happy with this phone. The speakers are pretty quiet and I think there's something wrong with the battery. I can kind of survive with the audio as otherwise it's a great phone, but it's frustrating when I barely use the phone and it dies by supper time. I'm not using Internet explorer that much, but it seems Messaging and Wunderlist eat the battery despite not being used much.

    I scratched up the phone so i can no longer return it and get a proper Lumina, so I'm not entirely sure what I can do.

    Since the phone is new, you should charge it up to 100, let it drain to around 5% and then charge it.. Do this for about a week

    Also you can limit which app are allowed to run in the background (access this via battery saver)

    I did a complete wipe and am starting with a fresh configuration. Using Internet Explorer for ten minutes will eat 7% of battery while charging.
    I have disabled cortana and Internet explorer syncing, but after I have a few hours I'll just browse the internet and drain the battery in a hour.

    That's a lot of drain :/

    It was pretty bad. Now it's not too bad, but I'm only making one change a day (setting up app, adding account, changing setting remotely related to power/data consumption) and it is still holding fairly well.

    It's still pretty quiet though.

    Update: After installing Wunderlist my battery life plummeted. A damn shame, as I was starting to really use Wunderlist. Is there any other decent to-do apps that don't have such a dramatic affect on battery life? Being able to sync with my PC would be nice but not required.

    Thanks.

    Did you try disabling background tasks in Battery Saver?

    The only ones I have running are for apps on the start screen, everything else is disabled. Oh, and I do have Wunderlist installed as well.

    Have you ever tried One Note? It sync and works well with Windows phone.

    I'm trying to. Now I've gotten it pretty stabilized but Internet Explorer and Wunderlist still make a noticeable drop if they're not closed.

    Graham, I've gotten in the habit with WP of holding the Back Arrow and entering card view when done with an app. Closing them that way seems to help battery a lot.

    OneNote is a great App for syncing across devices as SteveNoza points out. You can also share lists with others.
