    Have you actually tested, how much does it last. Maybe it will do better than predicted.

    Yeah to my experience, the prediction is not always correct. When I put my phone to battery saver and flight mode, only a percent drops every 9 hours (that too on a 620, with the smallest battery capacity). If that rate continues, my battery could last days, even a couple of weeks, but it always shows 1 day 15 hours.

    Its due to the apps you installed. One of them is faulty. Try to find that app preventing Your mobile to not go into sleep mode and problem will be solved. Again via hard reset - and not installing the faulty app.

    don't know if your problem is linked to the general one of unexpected periods of very high battery drain on win 8 phones. There's a lot on wpcentral forums on this esp for the 920/925. I have a Huawei w1 which was fine for 4-5 months consistently lasting over 2 days before it needed recharge- and this with a lot of net use etc. The battery drain always seemed smooth and proportionate to my usage. Then about 2 weeks ago it started dumping power 'randomly'. It would lose 10% in about 30 mins when I was doing nothing - so some processes are obviously running in background. I have kept wifi, blutooth and location services off for many days now but still get these problems. Phone signal is good and hasn't changed here, over the past year, at home where the phone mostly is used.

    I have uninstalled all apps that I remember installing over the last month except for Here maps etc ( and updates ) to see if I can recover performance. If that doesn't work I will do factory reset and start again - adding apps in small groups at a time.

    There seem to be several 'remedies' posted that a lot of people seem to find have worked but this is an annoying issue that squarely belongs to MS and which they need to address. One of my reasons for switching to win8 from android was the longer life I could get from the battery - and that was my experience.

    I will post here if I get anywhere or not ( in a few weeks ) - it might be useful since it isn't a Nokia phone and so the Nokia specific updates aren't relevant.

    Uninstall everything, then try reinstalling apps one at a time, just like greyowl99 said. Then, try updating to Lumia Black or Update 3, whichever of the two is available, if you haven't yet.

    Of course, you should also try a quick soft reset. If everything doesn't work for you, try a hard reset as your last resort.

    Have you tried if it still drains when on flight mode over the night? If it does, something is wrong with the battery. And FYI, the battery status is not accurate at all on Windows Phone. Even the latest update 3 has not fixed it. Sad.

    http://forums.windowscentral.com/nok...ss-issues.html . My friend read the link to the post i uploaded yesterday. I was having the same Issue and got to notice an app on the background process was the cause if i switch my phone off and back on my battery stat report 1day and 19hrs on 43% battery i had at that moment then after some time all of a sudden going back to the battery stat in the setting shows me i have 7hrs for 43%. i tried having battery saver to on always (under advanced setting) and switched off & on the phone it was at 1day 20hrs for about an hr but switching the saver off again after few minutes battery stat went to 8hrs on 42%..... so i concluded it was an app.

    1st i unistalled my foursquare switched off and on back after some time battery dropped significantly from 1 day plus to 6hrs
    2nd i uninstalled metrotube & whatzup app and switched off & on... at the moment of switching on my battery stat was at 24% and i woke this morning to see my battery stat is at 22% with a day and 4hrs of use still left.

    So my verdict is that whatzup app or metrotube is the culprit of this drain but am putting my money on whatzup app cause its the only app that has reason to unnecessarily be in the background process always but i think the implementation is not very good.. And these four apps i switched off where app that could still run in background even if they were blocked.
    n.b i dont have any battery app installed and i use a Lumia 1020 as well..... so try going through this processes i did and see if your battery problem will solved.

    Also i have try all apps i have installed now and battery seem to be holding up fine. Have never had the battery this good before. At moment i have only two apps running in background weather and facebook beta. And will try reinstalling foursquare and metrotube and see if thing stay same . will reinstall whatz up app last to know if problem comes back for certain

    actually it is normal!
    it is a OS bug I think or an App which makes processor work hard!
    sometimes , my phone ( Lumia 1020 ) starts to heat up while on stand-by!
    we should find the wrecked app!

    My guess is that everytime you make a picture the xenox flash is being charge even with the flash set to off. That's the reason because making pictures drains the battery of our 1020s so badly.

    Again... that is my guess. I have no way to probe it.

    I have a 1020 and get a full day out of it with 2 emails set to always sync, all background task are on, glance screen set to always, Bluetooth and WiFi on all the time. I don't charge my phone over night. I get to 14 hours and I still have 50%. Then I'll put it on airplane mode at night and charge it in the morning. If it doesn't get to 100% charge, it'll still last me the day. Problem for you could be low cell signal, either 4G or LTE or 3G. Mostly low 3G or 4G will do the damage to the battery.

    I have a L920 and I had no battery issues until I moved to a 4G contract. I have noticed a big different if I switch to 3G max connection. Maybe try the same.

    First off, every Nokia I have owned, and my friends and family have owned, has some bug where a piece of hardware or software stays open or on after closing or turning it off, the most common fix is to turn off the phone for a few minutes and turn it back on. I also use an app called "Battery" that will tell me with a Toast notification if the battery is draining fast.

    I just setup the same kind of warning in "Insider". It's great because if one app is killing your battery you are warned and you can reboot the phone.

    My 1020(RM-875) battery drains 10% per an hour and I replaced it with a new one, but no improvement is shown.
    Also 1020 gets a bit warm even when no background tasks are running.
    It may be a motherboard problem.

    There are various answers to why a 1020 battery may be poor. I would know because I've have 5 different ones. But before I do that, I'll share with you what I have set on my 1020 and why my battery life is just fine.

    I have 2 emails set to always sync.
    I have my brightness set to medium auto.
    ALL (yes ALL) my background tasks are RUNNING
    These include: 6snap, Bing News, Bing Sports, Bing Weather, Facebook, Metrotube, Timer, Twitter, WPCentral, and Here Drive+
    I'm a medium usage user but I get a day and 10 hours of battery life easily. I have Bluetooth and Cellular Data always on.
    I'm typically on my phone once or twice every 30 minutes doing various things with Bing Sports, twitter, 6tag, or 6Snap.
    I text about 150+ times a day and receive about 10-20 emails a day.

    Here are the various reasons and my support behind them:

    1. Poor cellular signal - I have poor signal at my girlfriend's house and I get my battery life cut about a third of what it normally is.
    2. NFC is on
    3. (THEORY)Background tasks are disabled making them constantly try to run but are stopped over and over again, therefore draining the battery. - My battery life has improved since I turned all my tasks on instead of being off.
    4. WiFi has poor signal or is slow, therefore working the CPU harder and draining the battery when surfing the internet.
    5. Pictures with Flash - the Flash drains the battery, if you can, take picture without it. I can get just as good picture if not better without any flash. Always test without flash before flash. You'll save battery if you try this.
    6. No closing Apps - Now that we can close apps with the "X", it is recommended to do so. I've noticed over the last week, my battery has improved by closing apps instead of hitting the back arrow.
    7. Touch - Turn touch sensitivity down to normal is you aren't using gloves and also turn off double tap to wake up. By having Double Tap on, the phone is constant monitoring the screen. It's almost like the screen is always on because the phone is always waiting for the touch. Plus, if high sensitivity is on with double tap, then your phone has a chance to open and **** dial someone. Also, draining the battery. (Happened to me when I tested it)

    These are just some things that I've noticed and experimented with that made my battery better or worse.

    After 16 hours, I have 70% battery left right now. I've texted 75+ times, listened to 2 hours of music from the phone speaker and over my bluetooth speaker, I've used all my social media apps, and I've sent out 10+ emails while receiving roughly 15-20. I downloaded 2 apps, used bing weather, sports, and news as well for about 30-45 minutes.

    I really recommend screen shotting all your apps on your phone, then doing a hard reset WITHOUT restoring from the previous back up. Then starting over if you're having problems. Go through my various steps or scenarios to see which could be the problem for you and try fixing them. If you have any problems along the way, let me know, I'd be more than willing to help!
