    Battery drops at the rate 12% per hour, when phone is connected to WIFI, GPS off, cell data off, and phone is on standby mode.

    Often times the drain rate is 25% per hour, when cell data 3G on GPS ON and moderate usage of internet explorer.

    My phone runs WP8.1 CYAN DEV PREVIEW.
    All background tasks have been disabled already.

    Please help, what to do to improve battery.

    Do soft/hard reset
    12% is not that much I had 100% few month ago. L928

    That doesn't sound right. I would try a hard reset and doing about 3 full charge/discharge cycles

    12 % is abnormal and way too much, no matter if anyone had more than that. Mine runs at about 2 to 4 % per hour with those settings.

    I checked how much power it uses overnight.
    WLAN on, mobile data off, GPS off, BT off, NFC off. Very few apps running in the background, and all I did was calling for 24 minutes.

    During 13 hours it dropped 5 % (pp), which is 0.4 % per hour. I think it's impressive, although we're talking about standby here. The 1020 may not be very efficient when actually using the phone.

    I never experienced that kind of drop as I have 1020 as well as 640XL. I use 1020 for listening music through speakers n capturing. It goes down way faster also it's just 2000mAh. I get around 5-6hrs. I keep GPS ON n sometimes LAN on or off.

    My 1020 is awesome. I am only down 5-10 percent after a days use.
