    Hey when you turn off NFC does your battery life start to decrease pretty quick? Like 1-2% per 2-3 minutes? Also, battery in general sort of stinks... Went to bed last night with the phone fully charged and woke up and its at 90%. WiFi and Bluetooth were on

    So you went to sleep with the two biggest connection drains on and only lost 10%? If you aren't going to use it turn it off! Also background processes.

    I have got few me, people, xbox video and music, xbox games, bbc mobile news, photos, weather, vevo, Facebook put it doesn't do much and that about it.

    Im looking for more do you have any suggestions?

    Added: I keep WIFI on all day and if im out of the area for WIFI I rely on my mobile data I like to keep everything updated and I do use live tiles i love them. I like how it show some information or when it changes to different images etc.

    I think I best mention because I forgot to on the previous post I sometimes during the day charge the phone up for about 5 to 10 minutes maybe a bit longer if I'm not to busy.

    But if you turn on mobile data or WiFi only when you need it, surely your live tiles aren't live anymore. I had the same dilemma. With data and WiFi off, I easily got over 30 hours on my Lumia 920. But then things like Skype, Whatsapp, Live tiled apps - are all useless. So, I keep mobile data on all the time and keep running out of juice within 6-12 hours depending on usage.

    Just to clarify, your 3G/4G data connection is the biggest drain on your phone when sleeping. Everything else pales in comparison.

    Oh now I understand well I had it off this morning people tile was showing there faces I did link the account to my phone contact, which put a picture to the contact with there Facebook and other things i assume it like the photos tile where it can pick up the image then display different ones it also does this for text on some of the tiles.

    I turn off my connections and see what tiles still do there animation or whatever it called and name the one that do later today.

    I have everything turned on. nfc, BT, always on wifi, LTE, GPS.... my battery easily lasts 36 hours. it's probably because I stay in Wifi zones at least 20 hours a day.
