    what's the correct way to do a soft reset on a 1520 running 8.1?
    I find the best way to soft reset is to power the phone down then while rebooting hold the combo and when it starts back up power cycle again.

    Just hold the volume down and power button until the phone vibrates.

    Best results for all of my phones have come from the method I described which is why I described it.

    Sorry but what you said in post 26 just doesn't make sense and to be fair I think you need a better method of explaining things. What is 'the combo'

    did a couple of soft resets, checked all radios, loc,nfc, etc turned everything off and over to manual control, removed almost every live tile, turned off every background app possible, turned off glance, turned off cortana, set brightness to low, I live within 1/10 mile of my carriers tower (I see the entire tower out my window, including emergency generator) Before the update I got 3 to 4 days battery life with completely normal use, now I get 20 - 32 hours TOPS with very light use.

    I think they have tweaked the software cpu throttling or something because the phone is faster but battery drains ridiculously fast compared to pre-8.1 days.

    This changed the very day I did the update.

    My battery problem - it draining as quickly as you can charge it (at about 20% per hour) - wasn't a result of installing 8.1. It just occurred suddenly and after a lot of testing on my Lumia 920 as well as my 1520. Soft resets didn't work and neither did factory resets with using the cloud to put all settings and apps back. The only thing that did work was to factory reset my Lumia and re-install everything manually. I actually think I'm back to my old apps and settings now, but now it's working perfectly again.

    How do you get the most out of your battery? I'm running Windows Phone 8.

    Also, I got my 1520 replaced yesterday. It is still heating up.
