    I had the same issues the first few days, never hot but always warm and the battery drained fast. Yesterday I took it off the charger at 9 AM, By 6PM it was fully discharged with moderate use throughout the day, pretty crappy battery life. This morning I blocked all background services and took it off the charger around 9 AM. It is now close to 9 PM and I have 65% percent of my battery life left and I've used it much more than yesterday's moderate use. SOOO much better! Phone is cool to the touch and not warm anymore.

    My phone had overheating and subsequent battery discharge happen twice. Since then it's acted pretty normal. Several hour long phone calls, BT xbox music streaming, lots of incoming and outgoing email, some web use, linking profiles in the people hub... got me through all of that from 7:30am to 8pm before it died. i qualify that as decent, a lot better than it was. hopefully it will get even better with an update.

    Few issues might be causing this. Had the phone for 5 days and battery drain a real problem. After disabling every singe background process. Battery seemed to stabilize. Its not just Nokia Drive tho. Seems like problem might be more complex. After having only Linkedin as a background process, battery was draining super fast as well so thought some apps might be causing the issue. Last night charged the phone on charging plate. Was at 100% took it off the charger and placed it being on standby mode over night. Something totally whack with the battery indicator because to my surprise woke up 7 hours later with battery showing at 100% - definitely unlikely - and showing at 22hr left. Ok getting very inconsistent results from usage. I also suspect the plate charger as not being adequate at fully charging. I charged the phone once through direct connect wiring. Maybe it needs battery to be cycled few more times. The time i actually charged the battery through hard wire. I had the phone at 65% at 11pm after taking it off charger at 8am. Used it that day moderately, 2 10 minute calls, Checked about 15 emails. Downloaded 3 apps. So was actually great performance. Over-all more testing needed. Next few days i'll charge it through the wire and will drain it through heavy use. Hoping its really just a charge cycle issue, but definitely things running in background that overheat the phone as well so hoping for an update asap. This is a very poor start for Windows and Nokia. Most consumers would just return the phone back to the store and say its broken. This is inexcusable with so many choices of great phones out there.

    Update: My battery life issues have been steadily improving after performing a Factory Reset.
    After the reset completed reloaded my apps from backup, disabled NFC and Blocked Nokia Drive from running in the background.
    As of today, battery was at 72% after sitting idle in my car for 8 hours.
    And overheating issues have also disappeared.

    I really like the L920 and am not going back to my iPhone 4.

    Lets hope the WP8.1 update will be released early next year... L920 is almost perfect, just needs some minor tweaks. 😊

    Putting my two cents in. This issue has nothing to do with Nokia Drive and everything to do with LTE. I have blocked all of the background tasks I can, I ran the battery down yesterday until it shut itself off, and fully charged the phone. I am in a location where I have LTE and WiFi. The phone phone is set to automatically connect to the WiFi access point. After the phone was fully charged, I used it as I normally would. No battery drain issues, no heat issues. This morning I had 47% battery left. Decided to give it a go turning off WiFi. Wham! Phone immediately heats up and battery sinks like a rock.

    Day 4 with my Black Nokia Lumia 920. I wanted to test the battery while I slept to see how much I would loose. I fully charged the phone and unplugged it right before I went to sleep.

    Lost only 5%. Compaired to my last phone, HTC Rezound, this is leaps forward. I usually lost about 30% and it only lasted about 4 hours of constant use. Glad I switched because this phone lasts me at least 8 hours on heavy/moderate use. On normal use, I get a day easy.

    It's something random, not nokia drive or something bug. My red was doing just great with almost 2 days on single charge without any tweaking or disabling anything but today I charged it at the evening at 8pm and found it completely discharged and turned off at 7am at the morning, didnt install or change anything on the phone

    I bought the Black Lumia 920 in-store on Nov-9th and have been using it since then. For the first couple of days the battery did drain a lot. Then I just turned off the Nokia Drive and what i do regularly is to turn off the wi-fi because most of the time I am at work where I dont need wifi. I have been getting around 26 hrs with one full charge and I have Bloomberg, Groupon, CNN and weather channel.

    Hi
    I have Yellow nl920 and since day1 i got battery & heat issues.. already drained the battery 3 times then fully charge it without any noticeable improvement. Today evening i charged it to 100% and now after 4hrs the battery level is at 40% (no Nokia Drive - no games - occasional web browsing - couple phone calls & SMS's). When used, I notice that heat is always emitted around the center of the phone (where camera & flash is located)

    I still hope that it's a software or manageable issue as I dont want to return it

    I picked up a Cyan 920 on Dec 7 from the Microsoft Store, and immediately after leaving the store the top half of the phone got really hot. I kept it for the weekend, turning off NFC, limiting the email checks to every 2 hrs, and disabling background tasks. I still had issues with hotness and battery life (wouldn't last more than a day with approx 10 minutes of usage). I exchanged it for another one on Dec 10, and I'm still having problems with hotness and battery life.

    Does anyone have any other suggestions for this problem? The folks at the MS Store don't really seem to know what the problem is. I really like this phone, but I'm thinking of just returning it and going back to my old phone.
