    With heavy usage I get a solid day maybe even a day and a half on one full charge with my 1520.

    as I said: I do everything: talking, emails, texting, browsing, GPS, music and videos, WiFi, lte, bright screen, and still never get more than 12 hours of battery life.

    What is this discussion about?
    We all have the same phones with the same batteries. The only thing that differs is settings, installed apps und usage. Boring...

    Apps made only for wp8 make a weird fuzzy sound that you can only hear when you have the phone's speaker next to your ear. This causes battery drain. Apps made for 8.1 do not have this issue.

    Turn off battery saver and stop it from running in the background. Very odd but greatly increases battery life!
    How can we turn off battery saver?

    All you're actually doing is disabling it from running in the background.

    Open the battery saver app. Under usage, find battery saver in the list of apps. Tap on it and the
    Then turn off the "Allow app to run in the background" toggle and you're done.

    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.

    Agreed, 1520's battery was awesome, under 8.0, but it's EPIC under 8.1 - the second dp update.

    I've just driven from Paris to Calais (3 hours) and am for and a half on the ferry AND then a further one and a half hour to London and home: Drive + ALL the way, with a Bluetooth headset - 56% battery left! Now I had the screen set to medium brightness but hey. EPIC. That 3000mah battery is brilliant.
    I didn't know you had a Lumia! I'm really thinking about getting one and I'm exploring the 1520.

    I'll be stalking you!

    The 1520 is way better than the 5s imo. I had a 64 GB 4s and it destroyed it. And my girl had the 5s and the 1520's processor ran circles around it.

    Well I'm a phone geek. I'm looking to add to my collection, because I've never had a Lumia and here is my chance. It's something I really want to try.

    My Lumia 1520 was having severe battery drain issues after upgrading to Windows Phone 8.1. I did the following to fix the issue:
    1. Did a Soft Reset (Hold Power and Down Volume buttons until the AT&T icon appears)
    2. Disabled Battery Saver
    3. Removed Cortana Live Tile from the home screen

    I've used my phone for 14 Hours today and the battery is at 70%!

    Using Here Drive + severely drains the battery even today. I hope they can fix Here Drive+ soon.

    My phone pretty much last the entire day under heave usage, i.e. phone, IE, FB, Instagram, camera, etc. My only concern is that it takes hours and hours to charge. When I woke up at 6:30am it was at 10%. When I got to work I plug it in and only plugged it out to go to lunch for about an hour. It's now past 2pm and it's only 63% charged. I normally don't let it go down to 10%, but yesterday I used the phone a lot to make calls. Anyone else notice it takes a long time to fully charge their 1520's?

    I've just uninstalled unused apps, removed Cortana from the home screen, reset the phone, and disable other apps from running in the background. Hopefully this will make a difference.

    I have done this. I did not see any improvement of battery life. I am hopeless now. I feel like going back to android. I know I will miss the camera. :9

    What charger are you using because that is not right. My phone takes about 2 hours to charge.

    I am using the charger cord that came in the box. At home I use a similar charger, but no the one that came with my phone.

    Why don't you use the charger that came with the phone? The charger is the problem with your long charge times, you can also feck up your phones battery using cr@p chargers.

    Yup that's what I meant to say. I am using the charger that came with the phone (at least when I am at work). Hoping the other fixes recommended above will improve my battery life/lessen charging time.
