    I've diagnosed the bad battery life by low 4G / LTE signal, whenever I have more than 4 bars of either my life is tremendous, while I was asleep my phone was constantly searching for signal so the battery discharge was abnormal for my phone.

    So last night after charging my phone to 100% and going to sleep, while turning data off completely in an area that has no LTE 4G tower my phone this morning after I woke up was 100% !!!
    So that would explain why I have such horrid battery life where I am. I live with two parents (mom and dad) and my dad lives in the country (horrible signal) and my mom in the city (great signal and battery life) if this helps anyone please tell me.

    My phone was on 100% for 9 hours and has slowly worked its way to 97% (now) with quite moderate use, could this be redemption or to good to be true?

    Okay idk what I did but I've never been so happy with my battery life. I've been taking photos for the past hour at a habbachi restaurant and I've only lost 4% taking almost 30 photos. Omg Nokia I have faith in your batteries once more

    Unfortunately, LTE isn't the problem for me. Battery life does not seem to improve even when the device is turned off, and it still drains in 20 hours. More than likely, there's a defect in my device.

    I had the same problem when I first got my phone. It would charge at 50% and hour and would get abnormally hot. I did a full reset and only installed battery sense. This brought down the discharge rate from 5-6% per hour on standby to 2-3% per hour, and charge at a slower rate. I turned off 3G (my country does not have 4G) and only use 2G (edge). This reduce the standby discharge rate to 0.8% per hour. I took it on a trip and used flight mode the whole time, it lasted me 3 days with light to moderate use ( taking pictures and uploading to Instagram on wifi ).
    Now I use it on 3G with a few apps in the background and the discharge rate is at around 2.5% per hour but would spike whenever I use any apps that requires the internet.

    Nokia has an ongoing quality control problem. I went through at least 5 920's due to hardware or software defects. I received a 1020 replacement that has what I now consider "typical Nokia battery drain issues."

    I installed the new iFruit app last night and did some heavy usage for about an hour and brought it down to about 61% and I had the app accidentally open over night and lost only 3% more, so its definitely alot better, I haven't done anything more than a soft reset and I don't wanna do any hard resets but well see as time tells.

    So what changed for you to suddenly get such good battery life? Is your data connection always off now? I was at 100% at 8AM, now its 3PM and I'm at 40%. My usage today : downloaded one app, made 2 short calls (1 minute each), read 2 emails and replied to some whatsapp messages.
    Location, bluetooth and nfc are off, wifi, data and glance (timed) are on. My reception is pretty strong too at 4-5 bars for cellular and full bars for wifi

    it's nice to know you already had a good battery life after some usage, but i have a question though. when do you charge your phone? when it hit below 20% or 40% or something? and when you charge, do you always make sure that it is at full 100%?

    Hi,
    on My Lumia 920 and 1020 i have disabled all background jobs, disabled tap to wake. swtiched off bluetooth ,cellular connection/wifi. Switch it on when i need to. i get life of about 24-36 hours...

    My only complaint is the build quality of Nokia's has gone down the drain. they are not rugged as they used to be and WP8 is dragging it down. My N8 with 32MB internal memory and 8GB on SD card feels more rugged and does more cool stuff.

    I usually charge it right after or before it hits twenty percent and charge it till hundred and leave it an extra few minutes just to make sure

    glance is off, location services is off, make sure background tasks are disabled and also try a few soft resets and I never use WiFi, always LTE and if I'm in places with low signal I turn off data completely in settings, I've downloaded probably over a gig in apps called a few times no longer than five.minutes and texted a bunch and I'm just bow at around thirty percent, I was at 50% less than 12 hours ago

    i got my 1020 and this is my 4th day and i have issues with battery too but i think it is true for all that Lithium ion batteries are bad at first few days of use and it will get better day by day, but I also read that charging lithium ion batteries to 100% is not good also as it degrades the battery life over time. So it says, it is better to discharge it down to 40%-20% then charge it up until 80% only and not at full 100% to keep the battery at optimum level. here is the link though, you might want to read about it.

    That's reassuring. The battery life is the only thing stopping me from truly enjoying my 1020. Glad to hear that yours has improved though. Maybe there is hope after all

    u have no idea how bad my battery life was when I had it, the first week I was trying to do everything possible to do to make it not die every day, It did get better and better until one day I accidentally let it stay charging on 100% for 6 hours and it was like a reset to the goodness, I let it die that day to around 14% then slowly made sure I charged it at the right times and also I find turning everything off like WiFi and data when charging keeps it from overheating when charging, I had a really bad time with overheating during charging, too many things going on while the battery was rebooting, even though I have barely anything on my phone

    also, this may or may not be a solution for most, but I heard and I can claim myself, that having the sound all the way down (0,30) may or may not help your devices battery, only when its locked or so, listening to songs isn't a big deal

    I was really worried when o got my phone that I would be having to return it possibly a manufacturing error or possibly one out of a bad bunch, but you are basically starting a whole new device when you get the phone, you have to baby it to good wellness

    Draining lithium batteries to empty is bad for it. Keeping it charged is good. They wear out based on full charge cycles so 50% battery is charged is 50% of a full cycle count (in other words you only used half a charge cycle and you usually have thousands). If you store it though off it should be drained to about 60% battery and then powered off as that is the recommended store level.

    I purposely drained mime by heavy searching on the internet and YouTube for about am hour and only lost about 12% in that hour, as soon as I hit under 20% I plugged it in and charged it, also guys. A good note to keep in mind when charging your battery, as soon as it hits 100% lets it sit there from anywhere between 20 minutes to an hour, this usually increases it more than you would think, sometimes overcharging can be good, just don't overcharge it for more than an hour I'm warning you, try doing that a few days in a row and see how drastically it improves for you, keep in touch on here I wanna know how you're goin

    also I have found that usually during charging the battery heats up the back quickly and slowly gets cooler, this has gotten better for me over time, just consider it, if u feel a bit of warmth just give it a while it should cool a little bit, if it gets hotter than I suggest unplug it and charge it in increments, do not just charge it for 20 minutes and decide it is getting hotter, it usually takes from anywhere of 45 minutes to an hour for you to be able to feel a difference on the back of the device.
