    Hi
    I have had my 1020 for a while now and love it, apart from the useless battery, i know there is loads of threads about the battery but wanted some advice on mine.
    My battery only lasts around 10-12 hrs on average usage
    average day
    1 hr talking on calls
    1 hr Browsing internet
    3-5 pictures taken
    music player with headphones 45minutes

    thats a typical day, the things i have tried since reading the forums
    turn off glance
    turn off bluetooth and wifi when not in use
    turn brightness to low
    select no apps to run in background,
    turn all mail sync off
    turn all social sync off ie facebook twitter etc
    tried running battery right down so it wont switch on then charging to full.

    is there anything else i can try? if i cannot get this any better prob gonna sell it, am getting sick of rechaging it all the time
    at the end of the day we shouldnt have to turn all the phones features off to get the battery to last a day.
    if anyone can help that would be great.
    thanks
    maka

    Same here. My battery life on my Lumia 920 is downright awful. I've tried everything, looked on every forum, to no avail. Can't wait till the iPhone 6 comes out. Gonna switch soon.

    i dont really want to switch i love the os and the camera, was thinking about the sony z2 but the camera is rubbish compared to the 1020, i wonder why nokia put a under powered battery in there flagship phone? i wonder when the 1020 replacement comes out? was looking at the 930 but the camera aint as good.
