    I noticed that the first day with the official 8.1 with Cyan, my battery life increase dramatically. Them after the second day it went down the hill. Now I charge 100% and only last me 3/4 of what it used to be.

    Many people did a hard reset... But you must leave the phone for a few days to see any improvement in battery life...

    Guys, I just did a hard reset and fixed my battery issue. Do not attempt to do backup. Start fresh and you will see you battery life going normal again.

    I have a 920 and since day one, if it fell to and edge 3g or edge connection, it was nearly impossible for it to ever go back to LTE without going to airplane mode and back. This is the stuff that drives me nuts with Windows Phones. I have issues that should be small things since it should be cleared up in a couple weeks to a month. Nope....two years later its excuses, excuses, excuses.

    I have 18 apps running in background, 3g always on, location on. It lasts for me - 36-39 hrs at least.

    Do a hard reset and do not backup anything... I know it sucks but that's the way I see battery life to improve a lot.

    The same problem here. After two days my phone Lumia 925 did a super decharge, it really went hot. After a reset it all works fine.

    Same here. It even drains 14% off at night in flight mode, really stupid. In 8.0, I had 3 days battery life, now I can hardly make it to 2 days.

    I've noticed that old and bad quality apps cause battery drain, even if they dont appear in battery saver they are still affecting battery life. Just about a week ago I noticed my phone was draining faster than usual and I was getting ready to reset the phone when I noticed that i had tons of apps that I didn't use installed.

    So I went thru and cleaned up to just the apps I use on a daily basis. After this I've had normal 15 to 17 hr days when before this I was only getting 7 or 8 hrs tops.

    So just fyi...

    Sorry if this is a stupid question. Will a hard reset affect the contacts that are stored on my sim card? It says at Nokia to take the sim card out when resetting.
    I'm also having the same battery problem.
    Thanks.

    Yes, L620, 8.1 Black, GDR1 batter down from around 36h to 20h after update. Same apps and settings as before, no Location/Cortana either. As always 'solution' seems to be Hard Reset will fix all bugs with the WP OS (or replace them with new ones!). Still GDR1 does give us the blinking Live Tiles distractions.

    might be a calibration issue. on the first day after cyan i noticed battery drain is quicker. so i soft reset the phone at 50% battery. after soft reset, i see battery is 20%. Since then I am getting normal battery performance ( ~0-1% drain for 10 hours idle time with location// wifi on).

    Hold volume down and power button at the same time until it shuts off and you'll feel it vibrate then let go.

    The battery drain will disappear after few day, keep using the phone. Need not hard reset it. Hard reset it only if you want to rectify it immediately. I faced the same problem in the beginning, but upon usage, after a week or so, everything is back to normal.
