    Battery life was low for the first week/week and a half, but as of the last 4-5 days it has been doing really well (21+ hrs!). No significant change in how I use the phone.

    12 hours into today and I'm at 65%. I only have push on one of my email accounts. If it makes a difference, I don't have Facebook.

    I've heard that your mobile network will greatly affect battery life also and I get a really solid connection in my area.

    To answer the other question, I turn WiFi and Bluetooth off at work.

    It's definitely worse on battery life than my old BlackBerry, but I knew that going in. It hasn't disappointed me so far.

    Hello guys,
    I am totally new to thos forum..

    I have bought the nokia lumia 710 and i live in india.. So there ia no carrier association out here

    i have been following this thread since day one owning to get answers for my poor battery life..
    I have till now not been able to get a backup of more than 7 hours which is quite diaguating when u have rs. 15000 handset..

    @valith _- can you please confirm that you are actually getting such awesome backups.?

    One more thing .. I keep using the nokia diagnostic tool, and in that the maximun charging capacity is currently showing as 1170mah where as i know my battery is a 1300 mah unit..
    Can someone confirm about this also.

    Leave the battery and it's one of the best devices that i have ever used.
    And this ia the worst battery backup i have ever experienced

    thanks in advance,
    Sahil

    Not great. It lasts all day for my wife, but by the end of the night it's just got 25% battery left. I can't wait until Mugen, Seidio, or Anker produces a larger capacity battery for the Lumia 710.

    Yea, the battery life on this phone basically makes Windows Phone look bad. The Radar had much better battery life...

    Yep. Usually Mugen/Seidio/Anker can squeeze in a couple hundred more mAh in the standard size battery. That way you don't have to buy a new back cover because of an oversized battery. They really do work.

    Ouch, that doesn't sound good at all. I am sorry you keep having trouble with ending calls, we haven't had that trouble thankfully.

    When I get home tonight I'll check the battery capacity for you.

    Sorry, I'm a noob when coming to batteries and got a lil confused by your comment...do you mean that Mugen batteries are bigger than normal batteries? or they're the same size but can squeeze more mAh?

    Whatever the case maybe, I'm hoping they come out w/ one for the 710 soon!

    Mugen makes same-size batteries (but with a bit more mAh) and also oversized batteries (with TONS more mAh). I have confirmed with Mugen that they are absolutely working on a Lumia 710 battery that should be same-size with more mAh. So no need for a new back cover!

    You're welcome. Mugen makes these types of batteries. Seidio and Anker make them, too. I have a same-size Anker in my HD7 and it has about 100 mAh more than the stock battery.

    1230 mAh just isn't enough for a touch-screen smartphone. There's no excuse for this sort of thing. Even on the BB 9900, with a smaller screen, a lot of people are having problems due to it being underpowered. The manufacturers are shipping these things with tiny batteries to keep them thin and stylish, and letting the end users worry about how to get through the day on them.

    In my view, 1500 mAh is barely enough for a current generation smartphone, but realistically there shouldn't be anything with less than 1700. The processors get faster, and there's no free lunch. They need more juice.

    I agree, i came from the Nokia E71 and the last I checked, it had a 1500 mAh! Had enough juice to last for daysss! i can't understand why they'd put 1300mAh on a smartphone! i'd rather they make it a lil thicker but w/ a bigger battery!

    Just saw on Mugen: Nokia Lumia 710 - Nokia

    But for $45!? that's a lil too expensive IMO

    Yeah, but when it's the only type of battery on the market, they get to set the price.

    I just did a hard reset and my battery life estimated life time increased from 18 hours to 1 day and 12 hours with all old apps installed. Two things that may be the culprit:


    1. Make sure you go to App Highlights, then click the settings dots at the bottom of the screen and choose privacy. Deselect where it says it can collect data. There is also a checkbox for notifications that needs to be unchecked. Make sure you turn off the App Highlights live tile as well.

    2. When you first boot your phone for the first time (or after a hard reset) it asks you to sign into Nokia services or whatever. I'm wondering if there is data collection from that, so I chose not to sign and will see if my battery life increases.

    I have a feeling that battery life will be hot garbage though regardless, but just food for thought.....
