    I see, that's too bad but I'll give it a try. I don't use Bing apps anyway so that's okay.

    Insider pro is one battery app that doesn't use a lot of battery. Plus it's a great app.

    Cool! Thanks for the suggestion! Anyway, have you upgraded to 8.1? I guess I'll just pin "battery saver" and look at the percentage of the battery in the action center! :D Sweet! Still checking the performance on this new OS update though.

    Soy_Corriendo, You clearly have an app that drains your battery. I had the same problem, after I found which app it was, the battery didn't go warm anymore.

    With barely use my phone can last 4 days. Just today I put it on charging when it has 33% and time since last charging 3 days 7 hours.
    How can you manage that, I wonder what would happen if we switched phones, will it stay the same.

    Around 18/20 hours straight before the last update (10% left). Less than 10 hours with the last update. However, i have dimmed screen to minimum and i am seeing good battery results again.
    Usage is mostly reading news, some music, some tethering for laptop when i am out, text messages, IM+ Pro. Rare phone calls.
    When i use games (Mostly Asphalt 8) things take a different turn. In less than 2 hours battery goes down although not completely discharged. I think i can play a good 4 hours, never tried.

    EDIT: I have started trying to tweak things and, for some reason, when moved the screen brightness from mid to low + automatic i suddenly got to old 18/20 hrs performances (24 square yesterday). I can't explain the amount of hours gained with just one notch in the level of brightness.

    I'm amazed at how well the battery performance is on this beast! Especially since the latest update to WP 8.1. I'm a fairly heavy user and I get at least a full day and a half on my battery. I'm constantly checking Twitter, Fhotoroom, instagram, playing games, white background, multiple apps running in background, etc. My 920 did well on its battery life, but nothing compared to my 1520!

    My 1520 has really bad battery life... power consumption per hour is always around 4%. Do you know something about Facebook Messenger draining battery so quickly? I think that may be the case as I'm using it as my main chat because Whatsapp is nowhere to be found on the Store.

    Which app drains your battery?

    Usually I can get about 3 days if I don't play any games. I don't know what it is about MS Solitaire but it chews up battery like no tomorrow. Not sure why seeing as it's not exactly graphics intensive or anything.

    Sometimes my phone goes into major battery drain mode for reasons I can't determine. On those days I won't get 1 whole day out of it. I have all background tasks turned off and I hardly ever use bluetooth or wifi.

    My Lumia 1520 lasted more or less 2 days when I was on WP8.0. After the update it lessened, but now it's gradually getting better and better. First it was only about a day, then the next charge a day and a half, now it's back to 2 days. While I was asleep it only drained 3% for 7 hours. (I have some background tasks running and location is on). I'll probably get more from it as the days pass. Charging seems to be faster now too.

    Odd... My new 1520, running 8.1, went down to 10% after 7 hours. Moderate use, some browsing, Readit, and Metrotube.

    Two days for me, although I hate it not getting charged every night, but lately it has not been charging very well because the USB connected seems to have got hot and melted a little, causing it not to connect very well when I plug it in. Battery performance was bad for about a week after 8.1 then got better and the last update helped a little more. I am on my phone fairly heavily, though just internet browser and news and scores, not really any games.

    I can easily get 2 days with 3G enabled all day( 9am till 7pm) after reaching home its on WiFi.
    so minimum is 1.5days easily while using whatsapp as daily communication mean to my family.

    much impressed.

    Only problem is , sometimes battery suddenly drops for no reason (yea, i knw background process , NFC off, sounds off, email is on Manual-except hotmail which is daily).

    My record so far, and actually using the phone, is 2 days 10 hours. Very impressive!!!
    That is with location on, Wi-Fi always on, 4G data on, syncing e-mails, a bit of FB, games etc. No problems at all....
    Love the 1520. An awesome phone. Even better than my 920!!!!
