    1020 not available in the UK yet and having had an 808 I am very keen to upgrade to the 1020. Can any of you lucky enough to own the 1020 let us know if any of the 920's heating or battery issues (draining etc) have migrated over to the 1020. Thanks and happy snapping.

    Think there shouldn't be any. They are more or less fixed with GDR2+Amber on my Lumia 920. Lumia 1020 comes with Amber so I guess that bit of software is fixed. However, gotta wait for someone who actually uses it in real life to comment!

    Well that is great news for my 920, however the last two updates have supposed to have improved battery life and fixed the overheating and haven't made ANY difference. Really hope it's the case this time but I'm not holding my breath.

    I've owned a Focus, Lumia 920, and now the 1020 and I have to say the 1020's batterly life IMO is supurb. I used to have to charge my 920 about halfway through my day (heavy user) but my 1020 easily gets me through my work day and my evening with about 25-30% charge left by the time I plug it in to go to bed.

    The only heat I notice is on the camera housing. It has a tendancy to get pretty warm when I'm constantly shooting video or taking a lot of pictures close together. Nothing serious though.

    Yes, unfortunately I have experienced this problem on my Lumia 1020. I tried minimizing internet app activity, activating battery saver mode so it's always on and no luck--it overheats and drains even in standby mode with no usage. Still within 30 days purchase window at Amazon, so am replacing it hoping it is just a defective unit. Loving windows 8.

    Heat is much better than 920. Battery drain happens for me now and then and need to reboot :( Some bug in the OS I think...

    Not true I'm afraid, heating issues still present in many 920's after updating, mine included. 😞

    I occasionally have the overheating and battery drain issue. It seems certain app will trigger it even if I had turned off the background task, Tether-X Pro is one of the suspects, but there are definitely others. As a developer myself, I believe it's a bug in the OS or firmware not the app even though the app have triggered it.

    Agreed, allsorts triggers it in mine but mainly surfing the net, doesn't matter which browser I use.

    happens to my 1020 quite often. Can't pinpoint the cause, but can happen doing almost anything, browsing the net, using some apps, or taking pictures. And sometimes it will get in a loop that requires a reboot, otherwise the battery will drain quickly.

    Out of the box my 1020 battery was great. Now I have to charge it during the day so it won't die before 6:00 p.m. I'm not a very heavy user and assume its some app I downloaded. About to restore and see if that helps.

    My battery as of now (first charge) is mediocre at best. My 920 was alot,better but I'll give some time and see what happens.
    Location off
    WiFi off
    Bluetooth off
    And only four background tasks
    Button click sounds off
    Double tap to wake off
    Glance is in peek

    Hopefully after a couple of charges it will get better than this. I'll be lucky if I can get 8 hours low usage out of this.

    I just find,that using the device really kills my battery alot faster than any other device I've used. On standby its fine but once I start using it the battery really starts draining quickly. I was showing my buddy the camera for five minutes and did some photo editing and went from 74% to 70% in five minutes. Unreal.... I hoping its just a battery cycle and that because its only the first charge that it will get better. And it also does heat up near the camera when using it for a while. Anybody else experience any quick battery drain?

    Be careful about disabling location. If some app (like the stock maps app for example) wants to access your location but you've disabled it system-wide, it will not only nag you every time you start it up but it may also punish you by draining the battery for some reason. I'm not 100% sure about this but someone else on the forum mentioned it and my own observations seem to back it up.

    Apps should really respect the user's decision and handle disabled location better. A mapping app is still extremely useful without needing to pinpoint your current location, and tons of other apps that want access to your location don't really need it. I wish we had the granular control over permissions that Android got in its latest update.

    I disable location when not in use since it does drain battery for nothing anyway and have no experienced this abnormal map battery drain I just find the battery is mediocre at best. I usually come home with around 30-40% left when my 920 had location on always and I had 45-50 left always so.......Anyhow tomorrow I am setting glace to Peek again to see what it does since today I set it off. I do find the phone get waaaayyyy to hot and am talking with Nokia about possible replacement.

    Guys it's probably an OS/Firmware bug(s) that need to be fixed ASAP but in contrast Microsoft is turning their back in serious issues like everything is perfect on WP OS or the firmware!
    Support my suggestion if you are intrested!

    For me it happens with Nokia Creative Studio

    Had my Lumia 1020 for a day now. It was fully charged last night and when I woke up in the morning it was on about 15%!!! I let it drain and die before charging it to 100%, been using it for 2hrs and 17 minutes, took a few snapchats, looked at fb couple of times and did some text messaging and a few pictures; am now on 75% which is not too good considering. So I put it in airplane mode and battery saver, it is now draining at 15% per hour! There is some serious issues, I have already done a hard reset once. If this doesn't clear up by a weeks time I will be sending it back and will be very sad to see it go as it is such a great phone. Seeing 75% battery left with Estimated time remaining as 5 hours is just unacceptable in my opinion.

    If it still drain the battery, even after an hard reset, I'm afraid you have to return in... There might be an hardware issue...
    My 1020 consumes about 1% over night in airplane mode...

    My advice to you is to let the battery fully out of juice till the device turn off , then fully recharge your Lumia , that will make the battery life goes better and for better performance.
