    After cyan update I am really impressed by how my Lumia 1520's battery is doing so far. How's yours?

    I leave this screen on all day at the office, since it's IPS and not AMOLED, there's no risk of burnin. I leave the auto-brightness on which for the first time ever is actually awesome and works. I definitely am a heavy user of this device, and I never even have to worry about it running out before bed time each night.

    It's hands down the best battery experience I've had with any mobile device.

    Been having problems with my order. Made an order and after some days they called me to tell me it was no longer available and I had already gotten a protective case in anticipation of the device. And after then, I was unable to find a local store that sells this device. Anyway, last week decided I was going to get the L930; I was on the verge of purchasing the device (it even costs more) but when I thought of the batter of the L1520 I decided I just couldn't.

    Anyway, today I found another seller, but he is from another city. He says he has it and would ship tomorrow; fingers crossed (hope he really has it). Only time will tell.

    This is mine from a week and a half ago http://1drv.ms/1qFVqVz

    My 1520 has Cyan with Dev Preview enabled (so Update 1 is installed).

    My battery life was actually better with WP8.0 than 8.1

    YES, with Update 1 Internet Explorer seems to consume a bit more battery - waiting for an update, hopefully remediates that.

    BUT, my experience on the Cyan update (for about a week & a half) was superb battery life.

    After 12 hours off the charger I still have 70% battery after getting official cyan update. Before with preview for developers at 12 hours I'd be around 25 to 35% battery. Kudos to Microsoft!!! My 1520 feels like it isn't getting as hot either when playing a game or watching videos.

    DITTO. I regularly get 50 hours of battery on my normal use.
    By far the best on any smartphone device that i have owned. Especially the ICON.

    I haven't noticed IE draining my battery more than usual (personal observation + battery saver reflects my observation) but when I just had the Cyan update installed with enabling the dev preview, I was definitely getting worse battery, basically 1 day to 1 day and a half compared to 2 full days. Granted, I've allowed a couple more apps to run in the background compared to WP8.0, and I'm sure some of the added features to WP8.1 drain the battery more as well, but after testing this on two seperate 1520's I'm definitely not getting a healthy battery increase compared to other 1520 users.
