    After several weeks, im finding that i see 12 hours with no use. If i use the phone moderately, that time drops by several hours.
    I have only a handful of background apps, calendar, and email. Wifi calling is mostly broken (reconnection to the service is completely unreliable after its disconnected), and while active, the SMS Carrier # is blanked out, making text messaging impossible. Downgrading to 8.0 seems like the only reasonable option at this point until Cyan is pushed out by tmobile.

    My 925 battery is bad like really bad. Using IE murders the battery and so does Netflix. I have 100% in the morning and at around 1pm I'm at 30% with little use. I hope cyan fixes this

    turning off battery saver actually seems to work. Give that a try, im seeing 30-40% more battery capacity at the end of a workday having only switched that off.

    I've been testing this, and battery life seems a little better. That being said, in my experience is about the same with WP 8.0 or WP 8.1 (after a hard reset). Overall a little disappointing, I find myself recharging in the middle of the afternoon. I have no hopes for cyan firmware regarding improvements on battery life. I will continue to support Windows phone hardware&software for many other reasons and mainly because I like it!!! Hopefully in the near future the hardware will be on par with the market, till then I think "we" (Lumia 925 users) will have to accept that battery life is just not good.

    Sorry for the long post but I needed to let out my frustration! &*&%%

    Trust me, I know exactly how you feel with the battery life on the 925 and having to charge constantly but just like you said, I want to stick with WP because I think the platform is great. The battery saver trick has only shown little improvement to battery life😞

    Nope! I had before but since the 3rd WP 8.1 update everything seems to be fine with my L925.
