    Heres the rules.

    You play 1 hour of video from phone memory.

    Do not stream the movie from network or Netflix or whatever else.

    wifi and wireless enabled, basically leave the phone in its "default" state for you. Dont go out of your way to maximize the battery life during this test.

    Play 60minutes of video with volume at 20/30.

    Record starting and ending battery % and respond to the poll with your result. Shouldn't matter where your battery starts, so long as battery saver doesn't kick in, and the phone doesn't die.

    Lets see how the rankings fall.

    My Lumia 920 loses about 1% per minute watching a movie! I did not watch a whole hour though!

    give it a shot, Id be curious if you can really drop 60% in an hour. I thought mine was bad, well I know mine is bad, and I lost 22% in an hour.

    Here is what I can tell you. The fist day my L920 had pretty bad battery. It was really surprising how fast my battery was running out of juice compared to my L900. But after couple of charging cycles... it's pretty good.

    For example today, I unplugged my phone off the charger around 7:30 AM and it's 2:30 PM and I still have about 68% left.

    - BT on all the time.
    - Half hour of total calls.
    - 1:15 mins of video (not streaming).
    - 3 emails in real time sync (as the item arrives) 1 every 2 hours.
    - Weather, CNN, Stocks, FB, Twitter, Skype running in the background.

    I must say it's pretty good. (I have LTE on, but I only get 4G at my work).
