    Hi people. As the title asks will the battery on the 925 be better than the 920.

    I had a 920 and really liked it but the battery was very poor imho.

    It wouldn't last a day compared to my iPhone 5 and thus had to revert back to my iPhone which I was very annoyed with because finally I'd found a phone that I really liked and was ready to ditch Apple as I've been with them from the very start and fancied something different.

    My wish list for the 925 is

    1. They do a sim free 32gb in white
    2 the battery is vastly improved
    3. I can get hold of a yellow charge backplate.

    Hmm. According to Nokia, it has vastly improved battery life. I'm kind of suspicious at this announcement, so here are some hard facts:

    -The battery is still 2000 mAh, with a slightly lower voltage. I don't know how this will affect battery life.
    -The phone has an AMOLED screen instead of an IPS LCD screen. Should impact the battery positively (unless you absolutely love white)
    -The phone should be more optimized as they have had at least six months between the availability of the 920 and the launch of the 925.

    From the Nokia spec pages of both devices:

    Battery model: BL-4YW
    Battery capacity: 2000 mAh
    Battery voltage: 4.2 V
    Removable battery: No
    Maximum 2G talk time: 18.3 h
    Maximum 3G standby time: 440 h
    Maximum 3G talk time: 12.8 h
    Maximum cellular network browsing time: 6 h
    Music playback time: 55 h
    Maximum Wi-Fi network browsing time: 7.2h

    Battery model: BP-4GW
    Battery capacity: 2000.0 mAh
    Battery voltage: 3.7 V
    Removable battery: No
    Maximum standby time (2G): 320.0 Hour(s)
    Maximum talk time (2G): 7.5 h
    Maximum standby time (3G): 320.0 Hour(s)
    Maximum talk time (3G): 9.0 h
    Maximum music playback time: 52.0 Hour(s)
    Maximum Wi-Fi network browsing time: 9.0 Hour(s)
    Maximum video playback time: 5.0 hours

    So talk time seems to be the only significant spec increase on the 925.

    I'm not even looking at the stats Nokia has posted on either phone, but I'm going to say yes largely because of the AMOLED screen. From what I gather, the phone would have better battery life with that type of screen. I'm really looking forward to getting my hands on a 925, and if what some have said about a mid-July release on T-Mobile US is true, that'll be a nice birthday present for myself!

    LTE is a power hog... Then in most test the 920 gets only about 5 hours of browsing in WiFi. So we have to wait and see what the German tests say, as they get theirs first.

    When looking at the batter specs above, the battery in the 925 will hold significantly more charge.
    L925: 2.0 Ah x 4.2v = 8.4 Watt hours
    L920: 2.0 Ah x 3.7v = 7.4 Watt hours
    That's a 13.5% increase in battery capacity.
    Ideally the 925 is more efficient than the 920, and with an AMOLED screen you should be looking at much improved battery life
