    My 520 goes 3days on normal use my 720 goes 1.5days on heavy use and my 925 goes half a day on heavy use....out of all my phones have to say my 720 is the best all-rounder it runs all day and night and don't have to worry about running out of power the 925 is a great phone but is a little power hungry if you use it alot and u find by mid afternoon i am looking for a PowerPoint to plug it into..the 520 is just a run about phone i use when going out bush as it get the best range when roaming away from mobile service as it is the best phone for rural and remote areas

    I bought the Lumia 925 on Monday 7/22/2013 and my battery experience has been horrible I have to charge it 3-4 times a day. The standby time is good on it but the screen on time is really bad. Like today I unplugged the phone @9am @100% it's 12:35pm and the phone has 16% battery left. I'm coming from an HTC One I used it the same way I'm using the 925 but would only need to charge the One twice throughout the day.

    Day 4 with my phone. Started off with 100% at 5:30a and now it's around 60% around 6:00p. Some mapping, time online, few dozen texts, and half the day in a low service zone (bouncing back and forth between no service, and 1-2 bars of 2G/4G service.

    So far my 925 has had consistently good battery life. I have strong LTE at home, mixed LTE at work in Boston, and I keep my WiFi off because my cell connection is usually faster.

    I have NFC off and Bluetooth on most of the time, and my phone easily makes it through the day unless I'm streaming music for a few hours (which I like to do at work) so in that case I keep it plugged in. But, over weekends when I have it off charger the longest I've never had to worry about it, unlike the 920 it replaced.

    Look I think we need to understand battery life comes down to pure apps and usuage. Example I have a 925 which I bought in the US, when I was.in the US I use to communicate with family and friends via whatsapp now I am a huge whatsapp user I.e. Every 5 mins on WA for prob 15 mins chatting. My battery would last from 8am do 12pm max and would need a full recharge. In fact I use to walk around with a juice pack for the phone ....

    Now that I am back I use my iphone (which has to get two days of battery life when not on WA), I use my 925 when at home for mail etc as I love the phone and use my iphone on my home network (waiting for my mobile unlock code). Now the tables have turned I get 1/2 day on my iPhone and two days on my 925.

    No matter what you turn off etc certain apps require radio, screen, processing and background processing all of which will eat your battery regardless of the phone and OS

    I've had my 925 for just over 2 weeks and the I would say the battery has finally settled, I was getting about a day out of it before but now its well over a day with my use, sometimes two days.

    That's with 2 push emails (exchange and Hotmail), whatsapp, viber, 4G most of the time, wifi. It's def better than my 920 which would just make the full day.

    I have just got my 925 exchanged as it stopped charging. I used to get full day with my old one, i have charged my new one last night and 24h later its still at 75%. I listened to music while i was on the tube for an hour, some internet, texts, whatsapp and some phone calls. I can say that i am impressed now whereas before it was disappointing. There was obviously something wrong with previous handset since i barely used it and it would not last more than 36h

    I honestly have to say the 925 is phenomenal at battery longevity compared to my HD7. I pulled it off the charger at 16:30 yesterday and 24 hours later, it's still at 80% battery. Granted I've only been texting a bit and checking FB notifications in the past 24 hours but it's still pretty good that I can go more than a day without charging.

    My average time between charges is 30 hours. Glance on, double tap on, wifi always on. I am on 3G/3.5G network. I don't play games at all, using phone for 20 calls on a daily basis, making notes, checking social networks few times, reading baconit, WP central.. Battery life is AWSOME on my device.

    my battery life was great for the first week+ of owning this phone and now it has gone TERRIBLE. This morning it was at full charge at 8am and by 11am it was at critical battery. And this was after hardly using the phone at all! Now I've been charging the phone for a couple of hours and it wont go past 17%

    Ive had mine since Saturday. Fully charged this morning, 1/2 hour to work bluetooth to car, briefly checking people hub throughout the day, emails, one hour of browsing at lunch, checking advanced weather hd, 1/2 hour drive home with bluetooth. Wifi was on the entire time, unfortunately they no longer give us the password at work. Got home and played Halo for at least 15 minutes (I suck lol) and was significantly under 20% by then IIRC and getting notices about low battery.

    I got my 925 on Saturday and so far when I start to charge it before I go to bed it has been off the charger 15 hrs and I still have over 50% left. I switched from an 8x and that is about 20% above it in same time frame and same useage.

    I get about 9 hours from a single charge, I'm not sure the people who say 24 hours with heavy use are being 100% honest about how they use their phone. I've attached the picture from the Battery application (very good if you like to look at these sorts of things). I can see loads of time with all services turned off and using it to play audio and check a message twice a day, but if you're a heavy user to me that means you use it all day long, adjusting services when necessary, but all email accounts checking in (I have 4), replying to emails, text messaging, playing some audio, uploading to skydrive/facebook, watching You Tube etc. I would love to see some other posts of their 'Battery' application to show charge time, service on time, charge time etc.

    Could someone confirm that turning airplane mode on does not reduce battery consumption?
    I can confirm this on 1020. Same problems occur on 920,925 and 1020 as i know if. With EVERYTHING turned off and in flight mode, it would drop 15-20 % over night. Compare to my 2 year old iPhone that drops 1-2%. I just sent my 1020 back because of the bad battery life. I didn't expect this from Nokia, really dissapointed.
