    No it is a syncing problem that it has and I don't think it matters to have it on manual.

    I just bought a used 925. My first W8 phone. I can't last a work day on a charge. I've tried 5 straight days of killing the battery completely, charging to 100% and removing it from the charger. No improvements. My wife's newly used 1020 I bought a day before mine has 3 times the battery life. I know she doesn't use it as much as mine but it's battery seems much better. Any good methods on benchmarking the current battery?

    Well it depends on how much you used it really. If it was just on idle for that length of time then no it is not right but we need more information on what settings you have on your phone, not just what you have blocked in the background and so on. What apps have you on the phone other than the ones that were on it from factory, 3g or 4g, brightness.

    It can save a lot of time if you put everything into one post, the more detail the better.

    Check that the settings are the same on both phones and try it.

    As Will6371 said, the time since the last charge makes little difference. It depends on how much you use it. The single biggest drain is probably the screen. What was the screen on time? A weak signal will also kill the battery.

    I've also been getting pretty terrible battery life, going from 80% to 25% in 13 hours. 12.5 of those hours the screen has been off. Glance is turned off, I have Wi-Fi calling on T-Mobile so it shows "full bars" for cell reception, tap to wake is turned off, Xbox Live is turned off, e-mail set to manual sync, all background tasks disabled... I've had this phone for five days and the battery life does not seem to be getting better. My Lumia 521 had almost four times the battery life of my new 925. I'm hoping now that I turned off tap+send my battery life will improve.

    So you didn't delete your email as I said in a previous post plus what setting have you got on the phone, it really really would be helpful to know.

    Can you read my post above (55) please, there is only so much help someone can give with limited information.

    This has been said before on other threads and if it was mentioned here I apologize for missing it. Here drive is a power hog! I got my 925 a week ago so I have limited experience. Having said that here is my past week.

    Got the phone and charged it. Ran an update, transferred apps texts contacts ect. Charged it again went to bed and about 12 hr later less than 1% per hr used. I was ecstatic to say the least. Next few days more apps fooling with camera apps weather apps ect. All of a sudden battery life dropped off a cliff.

    Last night I deleted a weather app and went into Here Drive where I found my location services were on. This is separate from location services under settings. I checked my 521 to see how some things were set up as that phone had great battery life. I left the 925 location services on for all the apps but I turned the location off inside Here Drive. Open Here Drive go to settings location and turn off. If you want to use Here Drive it will immediately tell you location is turned off. So turn on for Here Drive and turn off when you are through. This fixed my problem. I hope it helps you.

    When the Here location was left on the phone wouldn't even charge properly. I would pull it off the wired charger and it would have 83% 91% 87% never 100%. This problem is now fixed. I can not emphisize this enough. When you turn off Here Drive it is still on following all of your movements until you kill location inside Drive and this takes a lot of power. There are many threads on not being able to charge fast enough while driving to use it.
