    I just tested the recharge rate on my 1520 with a 2 amp charger. It went from 31% to 46% in an hour.

    This phone has the Snapdragon 800, which supports fast charging. I suspect they disabled it to protect the longevity of the battery (or WP8 just doesn't support it), but 15%/hour is beyond ridiculous. With a battery this large, a faster charge rate is even more important. For comparison sake, the Note 3 charges around 1%/minute (60%/hour).

    I can recharge my battery from 30% to full in a little over an hour.

    You're probably using another charger, not the Nokia one. That's what happened to me.

    Didn't really check what the recharge rate is on the 1520 and frankly, I don't know if I ever will. This beast easily takes me though a full day so I plug it in at night and that's it...

    Most of the time, that will be true. It won't be until you run it extra low one day and need a quick charge before you go out that it'll matter.

    The technology is there. I don't understand why they limited it so badly.

    I find that hard to believe. Several reviews mentioned the slow recharge rate. And I have tested mine with several cables. Unless you have a magic one that charges faster than everyone else, I'm calling bull.

    as far as I know, a 2 amp charger is on the high end
    usb charges at .5 amp

    if you are only getting 15%/hour with a 2 amp charger then it is definitely your individual phone and not a characteristic of the 1520 in general

    So when you buy a product and it doesn't perform to your expectations, you just roll over and take it? You don't voice your concerns or report the issue? Manufacturers must love you, bro. They don't even have to try and make a quality product to get your money.

    Fyi: Raising a concern in a forum isn't crying. Just because it doesn't affect you personally, doesn't mean it's not an issue. If it doesn't affect you then move along and spare us you pointless troll replies.

    Lawl point? Lawl?

    Or do you even have one? I said I tested with a 2 amp charger, so I don't see what you were getting at. Care to explain? The stock charger is 1.5 amps. Neither one charged the phone quickly.

    Neither the 2 amp charger or the stock 1.5 amp charger gives me more than a 17%/hr recharge rate. And the phone doesn't have anything draining while it's charging.

    This review specifically called out the slow charging, but I was hoping it was a bad review unit: http://www.ubergizmo.com/2013/11/nok...a-1520-review/

    Other users have also mentioned a slow recharge rate.

    people aren't bashing on you because you raised the issue
    as you stated, it is beneficial to everyone to come onto a community such as this and bring it to everyone's attention

    ..but when you attack other members and imply that they are lying without having empirical evidence to back your claim
    well...then this happens

    its not the 1520, its your specific device, just go exchange it if you are still within the return period
    or do a warranty swap

    but don't accuse people of lying or not being able to comprehend your posts

    Whenever someone raises a concern in a forum, no matter how many people confirm the issue or how much empirical evidence there is that it's a real issue, there's always that one guy who posts and says "mine is fine. No issue here". This is usually a result of the person either not understanding the issue, or simply unwilling to accept that something is wrong with their device. I buy a lot of devices, participate in a lot of forums, and see this a lot.

    I may have improperly assumed you were "that guy" and I apologize. But I have seen more people confirm slow charging than I have seen saying it's fine. And my experience with the HTC One shows that manufacturers can and will disable fast charge on select devices.

    Not at all. Screen off with nothing running in the background.

    I wish you the best in fixing your problem

    as a side note, I looked at the battery logs for the two other 1520s in my household and both appear very similar to mine
    I would just exchange the one you have

    sorry go take this off topic slightly, but what app are you using to test your battery rate?

    I cant check the exact rate
    only what I can infer from the graph

    the name of the app is simply "battery"

    if you type that in the search field in the store, it is the second app

    Yeah, I'll look into an exchange. Forgive me if I wait until after Black Friday, though.

    My Lumia 520 charger at 60% per hour. As 1520 has about 2.5 time more BIGGER batter its Expected to Charger SLOWER. That why there is WIRELESS CHARGING. This phone should run more even With low % of batter as it has more juice.
    Also note 3 batter is smaller so its expected to works better. By the way you mesurment were made by an app not by your self. Try a bit more testing with other battery app and come back
