    My new (5 days) Lumia 920 starts day at 100% battery. Three hours later, with almost no activity, it is down to 63%, I have Battery Pro+ by Nokia installed. It says battery consumption is 11% per hour. Only have two Weather apps and this one in the background. All others closed. Any suggestions? This hadn't been so until now.

    By the way, how can I keep Bing Search from showing when the phone comes out of the Lock Screen?

    Thanks.

    Turn off NFC and Location. Also block background apps that you don't need.

    Is it possible you are leaving Bing Search open?

    Maybe you're hitting the search button as you are unlocking the phone?

    WiFi drains my phone's battery fast. Turn it off as soon as you don't need it. Also let the battery run dry and then recharge it to full; do this several times.

    Beside all that the others have mentioned such as turning off everything you don't need and getting a few full battery cycles, I and others can testify that these phones are psychotic about draining your battery and to me it seems to be tied to a app wanting to update or right after updating. Any other time battery life is great, considering phone usage.

    Agree 100%. Usually my 920 still has 85% or more of its charge after a full 10 hour day of mixed use, however poor signal strength will kill the battery in no time...

    Dont Disable Location, Keep it ON...

    Try deleting Nokia Drive+ and Nokia Music ( do it and reboot your device once )

    Set your Mails fetch to 1hr
    You can keep your wifi and data turned on 24/7

    Even i had the same issue, after deleting Nokia Drive+ and Nokia Music battery life totally changed...

    Now i have around 25~30% left over at the end of the day...


    I dont NFC or Glance etc.. i kept them off for good..

    My usage will be Calls, sms, wechat whatsapp and browsing

    My battery was absolutely horrible the first week I had my phone, it would last maybe 8 hours total, and I was very good at keeping most tasks/features disabled. After the Amber update, it was also really bad for two or three days. I don't know why, but it takes a few days for it to "normalize" it seems. Might be an anecdotal observation only. I'm back to at least a day of battery now, with heavy use.

    The biggest drain for me was LTE. Our coverage isn't so great where I live, so my phone bounces between LTE/4G and 3G every few minutes. So when I'm in my house, I simply turn on 2G w/ data on, and leave my WiFi on. I'll only turn off WiFi and activate 3G when I'm out of the house. LTE just murders my battery in some places.

    The rest of my settings:
    - All emails are on 15minute sync (3 days)
    - Only background tasks I have on are Bing News, Whatsapp, 6tag, JDB Facebook and Twitter.
    - Location/NFC/Bluetooth is off.
    - Wifi is pretty much always on, since I'm often at home w/ "keep wi-fi on when screen times out enabled"
    - Brightness is on automatic, display has battery saver brightness and sunlight readability enabled
    - Touch is on high
    - Glance is on peek (always on can drain the battery a lot, I hear)
    - Backups are off
    - Battery saver is off (I can generally make it through the day, so I don't need to have this enabled)

    Hopefully your battery life will start to improve, good luck!

    I never understood how location, wifi, Bluetooth, NFC, screws battery life for some people. I leave them on all the time and get 25 hours of battery life.

    I set all push email to OFF. Just get them when you want to download them. Otherwise eats up batt and annoying dinging buzzing all the time. Unless you are emergency responder or something...get email when YOU want them.

    Location services has been a culprit for me & few apps like WhatsApp, Skype & FB (which recently has become better). When I started keeping location off when not needed improved the battery life. Also if you live/work in weak LTE signal then try setting to 3G somehow or use WiFi. Also try draining battery couple of times until phone shuts off and then charging all the way up helps too in the beginning. Keep an eye on area near rear facing camera if gets warm/hot during your usage.

    Are you sure you don't have apps running in background? If you go to Settings, you'll notice Large type heading, "system." Swipe right to left to see the list of applications, then select "background tasks." I've blocked all except News, Weather, and Twitter.

    Another poster suggested uninstalling HERE Drive+ but that gives you driving directions. You really don't need GPS apps running in background. When you open an app to use it, it will either locate you or ask if it can use your location... Either way, you only need GPS on when you want a service to know where you are.

    Games are huge battery suck, particularly graphics intensive ones. My 920 is only good for about 4-5 hours if I'm playing Tetris Blitz or Wordament. Otherwise, my 920 is usually good for 40-48 hours. I am on WiFi at home most of the time and that may make a difference.
