    Having owned a Lumia 920 I have to say the battery life on the 1520 has blown me away so far. No longer do I have those mystery battery drains where it appears the phone just short circuited the battery for unknown reasons.

    Today I thought I had my first issue when I saw my phone was at 50%. It turned out my charger had been unplugged. So it never even charged last night.

    The 1520 holds up to heavy use and just keeps on going.

    Yep, coming from the 920 as well the 1520's battery life was a very welcome change.

    Not sure if I have an issue with mine but I have it on full screen brightness and about 30 min after being unplugged from a full charge its at about 95% battery with "1 day remaining". I also have the setting on to save my location periodically.

    Does this sound like an issue?

    My battery life on my 1520 has kicked *** so far even when playing dungeon hunter 4. I would let your phone completely discharge the battery then charge it back up to full, that seems to help.

    This morning my battery drained 46% in 4 hours with minimal use. I am hoping this improves quickly.

    I am on full battery. Pulled it off the charger. Shows 100% with 12 hours remaining. I did a soft reset and it still shows the same. Anyone else seeing similar? Last night was my first full discharge as well. I've only had the phone 3 days though. So not sure if it takes a few days or a week to start improving.

    I get 2 days on mine easy, Lundon. I actually did out of the box.. so if you go a whole week with battery life that bad, then I'd trade it in for a new one.

    No, mine was good from the start. I could be biased by having had two Lumia 920s.

    Perhaps, it just needs to get some usage patterns down before the estimates settle? I actually never looked at that, I just went by where it was at the end of the day.

    If you are seeing poor battery life on this phone, either you have a rogue app or a bad phone. I have been consistently been getting almost two full days of use out of mine before I need to charge it (not before it dies).

    Thanks guys.. I'll keep an eye on it. I consider myself a power user in terms in most respects. I don't make a lot of calls but I do surf and stream a lot of video. I play games as well on it and check emails, use whatsapp and read my rss feeds throughout the day. I pulled it off a full charge at 11:30am yesterday and it lasted till about 1:30am before it died. I use mine at full screen brightness and I have enabled the option to track my phone's location in the Find My Phone setting. I have bluetooth and NFC turned off all the time. 2 email accounts are synced "as items arrive" and my only enabled background tasks are Amazing Weather HD, das Image, Fuse, Metrotube, My Stocks Portfolio, Twitter, Viber and Whatsapp.

    I'll see how long it lasts through a day without charging I guess.

    Yeah I'm a heavy user two I play games for about 2-4 hours off charger a day (angry birds go has me hooked -.-) and I last till late at night with using it for Facebook, twitter, surfing, texting, and 6snap all day long only had it die on me twice lol so if you use it overly heavy like me your probably right on track :P

    So maybe we're in a similar boat then. I would say based on my use it's probably pretty close to lasting as long as my 920. Could be slightly longer though.

    Heck yeah! Battery life on my 1520 has been a HUGE boost over the old 920. Just one more reason to love the 1520!

    I'm a bit curious how you only dropped 20% in a day. Did you power your phone off or have in airplane mode most of the day?

    My usage have been mainly Reading News something Like Three Times a day. Bluetooth and NFC is off. E-mail syncs once a day. Also for wlan i use only known links and it doesn't look up those constantly.

    Idle consumption is Something 0,5-0,7 range.

    I've had my 1520 for a week and am very impressed with the battery. As the phone is still new to me I'm hammering it with apps, games, calls, changing settings all the time and generally playing with the thing relentlessly and the battery just keeps on chugging.

    In fact, on most nights it still has 15-20% of battery power left.

    All in all, its an amazing piece of kit. I just can't put it down.

    Wow I was about to say.. Yesterday I was at around 75-80% battery, threw on Minion Rush. Played with full screen brightness and volume at level 15 for about 30-40 min. Then tossed on Modern Combat 4 for about 30 min. Checked my battery after and was at 35%.

    See ill do that at auto brightness which usually is low and after say 3 hrs of mc4 I'll be at 40 so idk what's up with that quick of drain since even the most intense games only drain my battery at 20% an hour
