    I found that it was my Gmail hanging up during it's sync. I removed the account and setup Hotmail to test the difference. Hotmail has not hung up like Gmail had. Right before I pinned it on the email sync, I turned off all apps, uninstalled apps, even ran in battery saver mode to find that it was the email sync draining the battery. I re-added my Gmail account and activated apps one by one. I am now back to 1% to 5% loss instead of 35% an hour.

    I have noticed same issues with my 1020. I had an OS upgrade to Windows 10 (Insider) and it got even worse. Phone heated up like it was short circuited. Obviously this phone was not kindly managed by Nokia or Microsoft for that matter. It takes a lot of tuning to optimize the OS. It wasn't done, instead they pumped up the power ven more to be able to get good 1080p out of it. I degraded back to Windows 8.1 (Latest) and somehow that is what you should be using with this phone. It isn't perfect and nowhere near a Lumia 640 XL. Just does not has the optimization required to get a full day of usage out of it. I changed my battery to. Same usage. So, you got to be clear on this. It's a great phone that should have had a camera only option, so you could use it as a standalone dedicated camera. It's a never ending story probably Nokia saw coming and put things on the side. End of story. Only a custom rom could safe this device from vanishing in history.

    Good thinking. I noticed that my 1020 is draining battery even if i switch it off. It just depletes and after 5 hours it is dead. There is a short that is always using some current over a resistor. It's the yellow flat-cable integrated into the back of the aluminium chassis for wireless charging. It's pins connect to your battery directly and has a internal resistance of 210 K Ohm. It drains besides from whatever you do. It is like a mini heater that silently warms up your device by using 300mA constant drain. Unbelievable, right? I have considered to make a read contact so i can disable the connection with a magnet. It means basically you will have to bootup everytime you want to use the device.
