    Great battery life for me, i switch off WiFi (no enterprise WiFi yet on Windows phone) & NFC (no applications yet), BT on all day, battery lasts whole day. the battery drains fast if i shoot videos or use Voice guided GPS. i have 5 e-mails, Facebook, weather app running/syncing all the time. Battery life depends on what kind of features you enable/run in background. If i run my phone in battery saver mode (only manual syncing) the battery will least for at least 2 days.

    did you play around with screen brightness, touch sensitivity, NFC ? these can affect battery life.
    Hi,
    I have iphone 5, have had iphone 2,3,4 etc. before and also bored with iOS, so I bought Lumia 920 3 weeks ago. It is a very nice phone, I like it very much. But... I do not understand how people can say that battery life on Lumia is nearly the same as on iPhone. In my experience it is so not true!

    Really, I am an average user (e-mail, Facebook, internet, music, almost no games) and I can easy use iphone for 2 days without charging. At the end of the second day I still have 20-25% of battery left. With Lumia I am lucky if I have unplugged the phone at, say, 8AM and have 10% of battery left at 9PM.

    I am sorry to say that, but If the battery life of your phone is important to you, than you will be disappointed with Lumia. IMHO, the Lumia's battery life is extremely bad compared to iPhone.

    not comparing oranges to oranges, 4G LTE is a battery killer, you can compare iPhone 5 to Lumia 920 (wrt to 4G LTE), not with 4S & 4 because these were not 4G LTE phones. another thing to consider is the NFC which iPhone 5 doesn't have, i heard NFC is a battery killer too, i never switched this on because i never found any use for it yet.
    But there's the rub. Iphone5 has an excellent battery, hours better than iPhone 4 and 4s. In order by battery life: iphone5, iphone4, (lumia920), iphone4s. Though the i4 and the n920 are close to tied (to me).

    Yes that is true it will use more power this reminds me of the days when 3g first started up and my old NEC 3 Mobile flip phone was a big beast to carry around and was lucky to last half a day lol

    If battery is going to be a concern you could always drop down to an 820. Same internals aside from the camera and storage (though SD card enabled), slightly smaller screen but you have the option to swap out the battery and carry a spare.

    I've only had android up til January this year. I got the iphone 5, thinking it would be brilliant, and it was really quick and lovely but just not what I expected!! I changed it for the 920 and will live with charging battery more often for the great camcorder (much better than the 5) and camera alone ... the 5 just seemed a bit boring and not what I expected. Albeit my experience with the 5 was only a few days, it just didn't do it for me, the way I thought a top of the range phone/operating system would!!

    its great in comparison except for web browsing. which i think yeilds less battery life no matter what you are doing. It's probably something to do with the fact that its not webkit based. I think its probably just a software optimisation thing that will improve in time. But yeah, coming from an iPhone 4 myself, it seems fine otherwise.

    Nokia Xpress is a webkit browser, so we have that too ... and I think that it is really good one if someone has a limited data plan ...
