    I think you will find the apparent differences in battery life is down to the carrier you are on.

    If you are 'out and about', and there isn't a phone signal or mast in the vicinity, your phone will be scanning for a signal. This goes up and down all day. This is the major battery drainer. Nothing to do with WP or the apps. Same story with surfing the Web, it's a power hungry task. Do it on Wi-Fi, and you will find lower battery drain than using your data connection.

    My Lumia 920 is on EE in the UK. As EE covers 95% of the country, using other carrier's phone masts, the signal is pretty constant and battery drain is lower as the phone is not continually searching for a signal.

    I get nearly 2 days with constant use, e-mail push, Live Tile notifications on etc.... Great for ANY phone!!!

    You know, I have a 2 yr old Razr Maxx I use for work running latest and greatest version of Android 4.1. And Samsung flagship phones get the updates in a timely matter. Maybe not day of release like Nexus devices. I have the latest, greatest Portico on my 920 and its still one to two years behind what my two year old Android will do with its updates that you think it doesn't get. So, what exactly will I be missing Watson? Android will always be two steps ahead of WP even if Samsung phones don't get an update.

    Another funny thing. I was over on Android Central today and the first post I found on a SGNote 2 was a battery life post. They weren't complaining, they were praising the battery life. I'm sorry but wp8 and 920 bring far less to the table than Apple and Android had two years ago. Hardware and software.


    too funny. Android looks like a child has just thrown everything onto the screen. I will take WP8 over Android and iOS thanks very much. But enjoy your Android device. WP8 is not for everyone obviously.

    Hi XxNeriahxX,
    Do you use a battery app for battery drain, or just let the phone switch off once the battery dies?
    I've never done this, that's why.
    I too manage pulling off a day, with moderate usage. With constant use, it would last around 3 - 4 hours.

    I know everyone has a magic app that was killing their battery, and it seems to be different for everyone, but after installing a handful of apps on phone I was experiencing 10 to 20% battery drain per hour in either idle or occasional texting mode. I deleted Rovi this morning and after having been off the charger for over 12 hours with mild use (no talking, a tiny bit of wi-fi web surfing, maybe a dozen texts) I still have 93% of my battery and it's showing 3 days. I haven't heard anyone else mention Rovi in any of these battery drain threads, so just wanted to throw that out there.

    The last 24 hours have been quite interesting, to say the least, with my phone.

    As usual, around 3pm at work, my phone is nearing the end of a battery cycle. Texting, surfing, streaming, picture taking... I throw it on the charger. Between leaving work, the car and home, it's only off a charger for 5 minutes from the time I put it on to charge, and when it's done. This is usually when I leave work to walk to the car, and the walk from the car into the apartment. So, 3-5 minutes of off charger time before it is FULLY CHARGED. The phone is fully charged within 35-45 minutes. I leave work at 4pm daily, so my drive home, the phone is usually all done.

    Once charged, I take it off the charger. Sparingly using the device except for the off text message received and email, the device usually just sits on the table in the hallway until the next morning when the alarms start to go off on it.

    I woke up this morning to a stone dead phone. 5:30am. Plugged into the PC, nothing for over 45 minutes. Then it finally registered. The phone then took 2 and half hours to get to fully charged. It was fully charged by 8-8:15am. Very little usage today, and by noon, it was down to 25% with 1 hour estimated time remaining.

    So, again, I charged it. Fully charged 2 hours and 10 minutes later.

    Here it is, 3:30pm, about 24 hours after my last normal charge, the phone is down to 41% with 2 hours estimated time remaining.

    This will be the 3rd phone replacement. Each one for almost the same issue. Rapidly draining battery. I'm debating on taking this right to a store manager to see if there is anything he or she can do for me. I've also written a letter to Nokia AND Microsoft in regards to this issue.

    But, before I close... I'll go through the usual...

    Wi-Fi is only on when I know I'm around Wi-Fi. There is no open Wi-Fi at work, so I leave it off. NFC is always off, as is Bluetooth. I'm in an area that gets decent cellular service, so my phone isn't constantly dropping a signal in search of a better one. The phone charges to completion, and nothing more. I use my phone for VERY little gaming, web browsing, texting, emails and photography. Nothing aside from the weather runs in the background (but for the sake of testing, I disabled it and have noticed no changes) and I use no navigation service.

    [edit: I've tried the "soft-reset" and "hard-reset" methods. Nothing has worked to date, on any of the devices.]

    I used to have very bad battery life in the first week. But after charging it overnight a few times it is giving me a superb 2 days backup on my light usage. You can see detailed analysis i did few days back here.

    Leaving the phone charging for eight or even 10 hours isn't necessary because once the phone battery reaches full capacity it will automatically stop charging and not receive any more current until the battery has started to discharge again. This is known as trickle charging and if it's done on a regular basis, it can cause permanent damage to the batteries cells.

    I have good battery life, but problem is that my phone reports battery level wrong. I just rebooted phone and battery went from 36% to 88%.

    After reboot phone shows battery level corret for few days, but every charge cycle makes phone report level more wrong cradually.

    In some point i have to reboot phone again. Otherwise my phone dies in one day even when im not using it. If i let it die out and restart it, there is still plenty of Juice left.

    A couple of tips....

    Uninstall any battery monitoring apps. They do nothing except drain your battery and make you 'fixate' on your battery life....

    If you are going to charge your battery, always charge to 100%. If you don't, the battery seems to discharge quicker than normal.

    I have zero battery problems. Most things are on constantly: Wi-Fi, Location, E-mail push, 6 apps maximum background tasks. Getting a day and half battery with constant use....

    As far as I'm concerned there are NO battery problems with the 920, just badly written apps....

    Starting to hate this phone.

    Drops 10% every hour.

    It's pretty much all shut down. Even when standby.

    Microsoft or Nokia should really do something about asap.

    my battery life was consistently good up until the 1314 update - now, i have inexplicable battery drain on a somewhat regular basis. i blocked all background tasks, i've wiped my device and reconfigured it from scratch, i've disabled email push (retrieving on demand only) and despite having less than 5 minutes screen-on time, my battery is at 30% after 2 hours. yesterday, i put it back on the charger with 65% battery after 14 hours off the charger. it's driving me nuts.

    I notice that weather apps (with tile and lockscreen) drain the battery quick you notice this by your phone getting hotter (my guess it creates a loop somewhere), I've also noticed this with the battery apps, I've tested by installing app weather and running a day then uninstalling App weather, I experienced bad battery drain. then installing App Battery and I also experienced the same drain.

    I seem to think that these apps aren't using the correct API's or have faulty code or since WP8 is fairly new so there's gotta be some bugs that seem to cause these issues.

    I think the major upcoming update will fix some of these issues.(hopefully)

    Question is whether anyone's battery will still be worth a damn when the next updates rolls out.

    Ok mate, just a quick note. I have similar battery drain issues.

    BUT if like me you have access to WiFi for most of the day (Home or Work), then you should be good. I am able to get 1 FULL DAY of full use, by DISABLING cellular data (when I get into work or home) and ENABLING WiFi. This will enable you to use the phone for a FULL DAY atleast per my experience.
