    Guys, I updated my Lumia 720 to Amber last night.. since then, the battery drains faster and I feel like the phone heats up too.. the charge dropped 23% in 8 hrs of standby while I was sleeping.. usually it drains upto 10%.. the settings in phone are same as the ones before updating the phone.. when I was checking the settings for 5 minuts, the battery dropped 10%.. is anyone having this issue after the update??

    Make sure you don't have too many background apps running. Try switching off NFC and location as well.

    My battery lasts just over a day these days. And I'm using amber for almost 3 weeks now.

    My usage:
    2.5 hrs of nokia music
    3 hrs of gaming
    0.5 hrs off calls
    wifi and data connection always on
    0.5 hrs of browsing on wifi
    1 hrs of Whatsapp

    I will install insider app and check the usage of battery.. other connectivity lik BT, NFC, WifI etc will be turned on only when i wanna use them.. its basically the same settings, but increased discharging.. I have uninstalled battery app that i use to monitor the battery status.. Also, I ve drained the battery to below 10% and charging upto 100%.. let me see how it works out now..

    It's ridiculous that to get anywhere near the claimed battery life you have to disable half the features.

    TBH, i think your phone wasnt running anything before in the right way, lol because the software was idiotic, now everything is running smoothly, leaving you with 23% for 8 hours, which i think is amazing! that's about a day. and btw, since the 720 has LCD always on glance is brutal, i turned on peek much more convenient (with night mode).

    23% was when the phone was idle.. when it was running nothing in the background, WiFi turned off.. before the update, when WiFi was on, it used to discharge only about 10% when the phone was idle.. BTW, i haven't turned on glance.. like i said before, the phone was only updated to amber.. no other feature turned on..

    I've blocked all apps and I'm running nothing but still the battery is draining in standby mode. I think I'll hard reset the phone and see if the problem persists.

    after i drained the battery to less than 10% and charged t to 100%, the standby has increased.. Its been 30 hrs since i charged, and i am let with 40% remaining now..

    usage is as follows.. 45 minutes of calls, constant fb, WhatsApp and sms, few background apps, 30 minutes of navigation, cam, almost an hour of browsing.. 2g data on 24x7 af occasional switch to 3g while browsing.. Haven't used WiFi yet

    hope this helps..

    and i haven't received smart cam app.. I've contacted nokia and they call me to inform tht they ll provide an update in 48 hours..

    I just removed Nokia Pro Cam and all issues were fixed. Just remove this camera app which is anyways not compatible with 720 and you will surely have the same battery life as before...

    That's a good thing to hear. I was afraid of updating my wife's 720 after my 620 drained very fast post amber update.

    I did similar to my 620. Kept it discharged until off, then fully charged. Now battery drain rate seems to be normal if not better than pre amber update.

    No 3G problem for you, Christopher? After amber update? I've lost 3G signal for few days after the update but returned normal in 3-4 days. Either because of repeated soft reset, or that Jupiter, Saturnus, and earth have disaligned..

    Update: after 1 day, the heat and fast battery drain was back. So I tried other solution proposed in microsoft forum: Nokia lumia 920 overheat and battery issues resolved? 24 hours - Microsoft Community
    Basically it is opening every app (including games) and allow location access in the app/game setting, where available, followed by a restart. It has been 3 days for me with excessive heat and fast battery drain gone.

    Well it's true battery drain has increased after Amber. I have been using my L720 with amber for a week now (updated via NSU). The battery life has increased only if you do not use it much and only send calls, sms. Then the battery seems to be lasting for 3-4 days. However, even with slightest more usage than that, it drains faster.

    Let me share some stats from battery sense. I only have two apps (Whatsapp & Battery Sense) allowed to run in background. NFC, Bluetooth, Mobile data are all off. Wifi also off when in office since our office wifi doesn't connect noncompliant devices. here's what I saw:

    1. Day time (Wifi off, brightness set to medium, glance off, NFC off, bluetooth off, mobile data off)


    2. (Wifi on, brightness set to medium, glance off, NFC off, bluetooth off, mobile data off)
    Using wallpapers and ringtone apps to download wallpapers and ringtones, checking facebook, linkedin apps


    3. Put aside mobile after usage and after 5-8 minutes this shows up (Wifi on, brightness set to medium, glance off, NFC off, bluetooth off, mobile data off)


    I am observing this strange behavior every time. On standby, mobile is draining less but once I start using it with wifi or without wifi, discharge rate is usually about 15% and 7% respectively. Pre-Amber, it never crossed 2.4%

    I didn't have any issues with 3g signal drop.. it has been working fine; however, its taking a bit longer to switch from 2g to 3g..

    interesting.. i believe that the discharge rate after amber update was similar to urs n my phone.. after i drained the battery to below 10% and charged it to 100%, it started working like hw it was before the amber update.. try this and let me know if it changes..
