    I have a Nokia Lumia 520 purchased a little over a year ago (October 2013). Until now, my phone's battery clocked in an impressive 9-11 hours with moderate usage inclusive of Facebook, WhatsApp, Music, and Email intermittently. At heavy usage, it clocked in no more than 4-6 hours.

    Off late, the 'Insider' App has been displaying a drainage rate of over 20% while on previous occasions it never exceeded 9-11%. My battery seems to be draining rapidly and it is worrisome since the phone is barely over a year old. If it helps, I've been playing Asphalt 8 and Dream League Soccer for extended periods, often for an hour or two at a stretch.

    What must I do to preserve my battery and ensure it continues to sustain moderate usage?

    I'd say order a replacement battery and see if it makes a difference. If you've done a lot of OS/firmware updates, maybe a hard reset?
