    Turn off battery saver and disable it running in the background, it won't update the live tile but you'll definitely get a better battery life
    Looks like Battery saver is not actually saving the battery but consuming it instead? What an irony... LOL

    I'm using a carrier variant model. it's the Singtel variant. When i tried to do a soft reset by holding power button and volume down button i am suppose to see the nokia logo instead i am seeing the carrier's logo keep popping up. so am i doing the soft reset right?

    And what am i suppose to see under the battery saver options? All i see is remaining battery life, estimated time remaining and time since last charged.

    Yeah you're doing it right its just the way your phone is configured in that country due to carrier. And sorry for not being clear this is for those with windows phone 8.1

    For me, the battery has greatly improved since turning off battery saver... Over a day now and at 42%

    I'm on the 920 and disabling battery saver does help to some degrees.

    I still think the iPhones has the best standby power compared to WP, Android. On my Nokia Lumia 1520 I was at 85% but when I woke up in the morning I saw the battery was down to 74% however on the iPhone 5s I charge it to 100% In the night and In the morning it was still at 100%. Any idea why is that so that WP is unable to hold on?

    Based on the stats in battery saver her usage is fairly insignificant... I don't really want for extra juice so for me it's worth it to have her always running. I've dipped into battery saver mode exactly once since I made the leap to 8.1, and I did the update within minutes of it becoming available. My battery life got better, even though I now leave location on for Cortana vs leaving it off unless I needed it when I was running 8.0!

    I would do a soft reset you may have something stuck running in the background that shouldn't.

    I noticed significant battery drainage on my Lumia 1520. I am currently looking at my screen with 90% battery life remaining. Estimated time remaining: 11 hours. I have Battery saver off at all time. I turned off wifi. I have Bluetooth on. I am a heavy user. I constantly play games (Throne wars and Cloud Raiders). I wake up at 7.30 with phone charged overnight (12-7.30) and I have to charge it in the office since I will be using it heavily throughout the day. Is there anything I do wrong? Why all people here could charge their phone once every two days? I am with WP 8.1, AT&T, microSD sandisk class 10. Could it be the microSD causing this? Please help.

    Right I have another update and a good one. Disable Nokia built in processes such as Glance, oddly enough since yesterday night with glance off, my battery is at 79% with moderate use in a low 3G area etc.

    Try it!

    You are not going to get days out of each charge if your using the phone all the time. I get about 12 hours screen on time but I don't play games so most of my screen on time is web browsing, checking emails and a couple of hours video.

    I mean, you can see right there what's using your battery. Games obviously heat your device, which isn't good for battery life. Why do you allow games to run in the background? Are they multiplayer? Then, you have 2 messaging services. Messaging services are known for eating battery life.

    Also, if you are often on a good Wifi signal, don't turn it off. If you're rarely on Wifi, then it is probably best its off.

    Hmm.. please clarify the background allowance meaning? say that I dont allow the game or LINE or Whatsapp to run in the background, does it mean I have to open the apps for me to receive message? In other word, the "instant message" feature will not be there?

    I have glance off already.
