    Today I charged my phone from 10% to 100% for 2hours and 15mins but estimated time shows 16 hours of battery remaining, normally it shows 1day and 1hour or 1day and 4hours ,
    Is this normal..?

    No. I switched off all the connections. Just mobile network is ON.

    That's normal. The estimated time isn't always accurate that's why it says 'estimated'. :) My 720 says the estimated time remaining is 16 hours, sometimes 18 hours but it usually reaches up to 2 days and 4 hours of use.

    How you got more than 2days of battery backup...??

    You do get 2 days even with wifi on for about 20 hours. However, that happens only if you do not use any wifi requiring apps too much.

    I regularly get two days between recharges. It really does completely depend on how you use your phone, what background tasks you have enabled and what apps you use. Try reading one of the many, many threads about maximising battery time on this forum or in the wider internet world.

    My usage is 2-3 hours of wifi for net surfing , whatsapp and battery app running on background, whatsapp for 15-20 mins, games for 15-30mins and calling 0-5mins daily. Sometmes saw youtube vdos for 20-30mins in hq. That's it. Battery life 20hours max with 8 -10hours idle mode in night. Battery saver is on when battery remaining <50.

    Have you updated to amber ? Seems like battery backup is lowered compared to before.

    Battery back up depends on how an individual uses his phone. Even if one sets the phone to maximize battery life, usage pattern will differ for from person to person.

    Indeed that there has been a trade off in battery life. But its really not much. Before amber my phone would last almost 2 days with wifi, location turned on. Its now come down to just over a day. usage pattern is more or less the same but with the addition of always on mobile data and glance.

    Glance takes a reasonable amount of power even if you set it on peek. The sensors are always on. You can see it in a dark room. But still battery lasting over a day with all bells and whistles enabled is much better than what other platforms have to offer which has lower battery performance even with higher capacity batteries.

    Absolutely normal. Estimated time differs depending on what you're doing. Say if you have 90% remaining and on sleep, pick up the phone and check, it'll show you 1-2 days.
    If you open Here maps for a while and then check again, even if you have 90% remaining it will say you have about 10+- hours.

    Like mentioned earlier if you're on Amber glance and double tap takes away massive battery.

    I always thought I had to be careful with my 920 since it does eat up alot of batteries sometimes, but after spinning my friends 5" 3000mah Android device for a while I have to say Nokia's battery is decent.

    I usually turn off some of the background tasks of apps which I rarely use. I also turn off the location setting, and cellular data when not in use. It all depends on how you use your phone and how you tweak the settings according to your preferences. I get two days of battery life even if I listen to my music and radio for several hours, play games, post status updates to Facebook every now and then, upload photos to 6tag, and even watch videos on myTube for hours. :)

    Well, maybe it is. They say WhatsApp drains battery quickly. I'm not sure though. Turn off some of your background tasks. You an also do a hard reset but it would definitely remove your installed apps. :(

    WhatsApp eats battery for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I can also lose 10% battery when playing AB: Star Wars II for 15 minutes.. 6tag would also use some battery usage optimization (though I love it!) :)

    edit: also the more people and groups you have pinned also takes more data/battery to update their tiles..

    i found out that data connection (always on) is the main culprit for the massive battery drain. u might want to turn it off if you're not using the phone (eg; sleeping)..
