    I had this problem the first day I had my 1020; there's a few quick fixes you can make.

    First of all, under settings for Glance (I think), set it so you can't double-tap to wake up the screen. This TREMENDOUSLY increases battery life. Lowering call and audio volume will boost it a bit as well. I haven't had that problem with the camera myself; not really sure what could be causing that. Make sure other apps aren't running in the background as well. Other than that, I don't know what to tell you. Are you focusing a lot? Also, make sure your phone's not running hot while in use; this is a sign of the processor working really hard, and I don't know why it'd do that.

    It's a small battery and the phone get hot with normal use. The browser gets is quite hot.

    It's just not a device that will have great battery life. I love to tinker and OC and all that stuff, but if I could, I would actually UNDERCLOCK this CPU to spare battery.

    That's one reason ill never go back to a smaller device. Bigger phones have much bigger batteries. My 1520 lasts over a day with moderate to heavy use. It has nearly double the battery of the 1020.

    It's really unfortunate, the only thing really going for the 1020 is the camera. I'm not too happy with the rest of the phone. Well, the screen is nice, albeit small and dim in direct sunlight.

    I'm currently have this problem too...

    I bought it at december and the battery could last for 1 day and 6 hours but now only last for 18 hours sometimes 16 hours after using the 8.1 dev preview dunno if its the case. but i heard that the battery problem already fixed in dev preview for 8.1 (as i recall, we get 2 updates from the first 8.1 dev preview).

    I already tried the solution as uninstalling battery performance, and shut down phone after 100% charged and do the soft reset for the past 5 days... nothing changed... also if you said that have to depends on the pd-95g camera grip, i only own 1 since here at my country its so hard to find this or rather not in yet, so i purchased from e-bay its also cost me a great bucks due to shipping cost and external taxes at my country.

    So I dunno what to do anymore, cant find a fix for my battery problem maybe its defect?, gonna roll back to windows phone 8 version and hope it could fix this problem, gonna report later if my battery will last longer after that.

    ------------------

    Edit : 11 days after hard reset, still 18 hours for my 1020...

    Hello,

    I wonder if the 18hr average for battery is the average/norm? After several factory resets and still having Bluetooth on, WiFi on (off when leaving office), and apps running in the background (Bing News, WPCentral, Battery, & Bing Weather), I am averaging anywhere from a 5%-6% battery drain.

    Now if I am watching a video (Youtube or on a TV app such as Hulu), my drain will jump from 13%-16%. Before doing a couple factory resets in the past 60days or so, I would get a big 12% drain while on idle (which hundreds of us here on the forums have experienced).

    ONE thing that is different is how I did my factory reset last time (roughly 3-4weeks ago). I went to AT&T to complain so I can get my third Lumia 1020 (via warranty). The gentleman took my phone and connected some cables to it. Instead of just giving me a new 1020 replacement, he flashed my 1020 using AT&T equipment. He said this "factory reset" is different from us users doing it through our phone settings menu.

    Anyhow, I am surprised I have not had my huge 12%-18% (25%-35% during usage per hour) idle drain yet. Had this experience for about a year and now after my last AT&T visit....only 5%-6% per hour drainage on idle.

    Anybody with a similar experience??

    I have solved the same problem with the short battery life with my new Nokia 1020. The reason for the short battery life was not the battery itself but the rear xenon module of the camera. The failed xenon module needs a lot of energy also when the mobile phone is idle. My new phone was charged out after 16 hours - and it was idle all the time - before I replaced the xenon modul. Sometimes the short battery life is caused the polycarbonate cover because it includes a lot of electronic parts.

    How much it cost for repair services? Is it free for those under warranty? And what if i installed 8.1 fpd?

    I'm planning to replace mine too. But im confused about my battery performance, i don't think its normal or not. It drops 2 % every 6 hours idle (offline mode). While 1% every 5 mins of usage like listening music, continuously and i feels a little bit warm. And worst them all is when browsing internet. It's not just warm but hot. And it drains 1% in just a minute.

    Guys, there was a thread on how a guy managed to fix his battery problem. I have tried it out, it did improve my battery. Although I may not get 2 days, but it is much better now. Check it out.
