    If your phone gets warm alongside battery drain restart the phone and try to switch to 2G and use for sometime.
    In my case, I found that this is partially related to the network.

    My battery is hardly ever warm. Have live tiles and background tasks of CNN, Weave, Weather Channel, Facebook, and Twitter always running. Also have NFC enabled at all times. Drain is about 2% per 30 minutes on idle. Been like this pre-Portico and after. So I'm thinking this is what's to be expected.

    How is it during use? My phone likes to heat up when I browse, and I usually eat up 6-8% with ten minutes of browsing on a WiFi network

    Phone will not heat up or anything, but I do notice it drains battery a bit. Today, after an hour off the charger, I was on reading news through Weave and CNN. 10 minutes later, battery is down to 92%.

    I find that the battery drain slows down after the 60% mark though. Average day consists of 20 minutes of "app use", 45 minutes of calling, and one hour of music. Will have the phone on for 12 hours with about 30-40% left.

    11 hours of idle and light use resulted in 75% battery reading today. Yesterday with the same usage and with whatsapp installed resulted in 15ish % after 10 hours. Whatsapp was a major drainer for my phone. Maybe it is for you?

    Weird, i noticed this too. The first forty percent seems to dissipate quickly (my battery went from 100 to 90 in two hours, just now. :( ) but as soon as I hit the 50's drain slows to 1 percent an hour.

    With the idle drain that I have, manage to eke out 14 hours before I hit 10% I know it's not as had some other folks' issues, but seeing as some people can reach thirty hours with light use, I find this a bit disappointing. Has anyone tried contacting Nokia or Microsoft about this?

    This may sound counter-intuitive, but if you're running without gsp on, it might be worth trying to turn that on. the other night, i turned off location services before I went to bed and went from about 75-30% overnight. Last night, i did the same with location services on and only dropped about 5-10% overnight. I've only done this once, so no reproducibility yet, but might be worth trying.

    I tried this as well, but so far it has done little to help. It doesn't drain the battery any faster though, which I guess is good.
