    For me it usually lasts for 12-13 hours with mod to high usage on 3g (excluding games). You may need to restrict some apps to run in the background that actually don't need to. Check you battery saver app and you can gauge the apps hogging up the battery.

    I've had problems like this with previous Lumia phones (particularly the 925). In fact, my 735 was going to be my last effort to stay with Windows Phone since I was getting such poor battery performance. I find the 735 to be really very good.

    I could be very, very wrong here but it seems to me that whoever is putting these phones together has an occasional bad batch where the battery sucks the big one. If I'm right, I don't know why. If I'm wrong, I don't know what the cause is.

    My first action, if I were you, would be to try a new battery - a genuine one. If that doesn't make a difference then you may be looking at needing to replace the phone.

    And whatever it is that's happening, excessive battery drain does happen and there's no point Microsoft pretending it doesn't. The solution can't be to just deactivate services (when a. You bought the phone for these services and b. These work of some people) and it does create a terrible customer experience -- especially when nobody seems to offer a replacement service like Apple does.

    Lumia 735 and I have 2 to 3 days of battery. So something else must be going on. Lost of background apps running? Bad reception?

    Same problem with me man, I've already replaced this device for screen brightness issues... And now this battery performance, this really sucks... Is it because of the quad core processor? High resolution screen, more pixel density??? frustrating, or a faulty device again???

    I think you just have to give it sometime..... Initially my battery life was very poor... But as i have used my device the battery performance has significantly increased...,... And one more thing..... Just disable the background tasking off the apps that u don't us... It helps a lot in good battery performance....

    Don't read too much into the battery indicator/meter. It may not show the real status. It can be calibrated in such a way to give false but nice reading to the general public, just like the fuel tank gauge in your car.

    Its been 3-4 days with lumia 730. It shows 12 hrs left with 100% charge. Is it something wrong with my device? :\
    And also i am not getting the option of when battery is less than 20% as shown in your screen shot.
    Mine is just showing 'when battery is low'

    I just updated the battery saver and now with 100% charge its showing 1day remaining.
    Is it fine now..??
    I guess its getting better over use as they use algorithms for this purpose

    Mine is always showing up to 1 day. Anyways don't worry, it's not showing the remaining time correctly. It may say that the remaining time is like 12 hours but then you'll have your phone on for like 1+ day. It's all up to how much you use it. I think it calculates the battery time by your usage over the whole time and not by discharging rate. That's just what I noticed.

    Also If you use your phone a lot it's normal. Every phone has only 6-8 hours of screen ON time.

    Yes i was thinking the same.
    But i was confused because many people were saying that they are getting a backup of around two days. Mine lasts for only 7-8 hours.!!

    I replaced my Lumia 625 with a 730 a couple of days back. I am shown a 32-36hr battery life on the battery saver app.
    Insider Pro shows a 2-3% drain every hour with normal usage and 5-7% with games.

    Please note that my primary phone is a 1320 and the 730 does not receive many calls.
