    Battery seems great to me. Sometimes better, sometimes a little bit worse, but not much difference to 8

    I enrolled again in to developer preview, but this time from Cyan, so now I have DP8.1 running on Cyan firmware. Battery life is ok, slightly worse than 8.0. Now I can squeeze around 12hrs with one charge.

    Yep, my average battery time is also around 12 hours.
    After the cyan update the battery saver app shows 30 minutes more of estimated remaining time than with black firmware+DP 8.1.

    Great thread, but disappointing findings. My biggest hope out of Cyan was very battery performance. It seems it's not fixed. I'm bummed.

    I Had a 625 in the past that a I run 8.1 DP and the battery is the same 2000mAh and it last, and last, and last... And this battery in 925 with 8.1 is ridiculous... Its a firmware problem.

    Not noticed any difference with mine (using Cyan for a week now)

    Heavy use I get a day out of it, moderate use it lasts 2 days, same as it did prior to the update
    How!!! I barely get a day at all with heavy use. What do you do??

    I have the cyan update and 8.1 but my battery is shocking!

    Maybe. But definitely there is a problem with these Lumia 925 devices that have problem with battery life and Cyan/DP8.1 update.

    What about new firm with NCS?

    To be fair it's early to put absolute blame solely on 925. We can't compare 8.1 to 8.0 without taking apps in consideration. 8.0 had an conservative approach to background processes, usage of wifi in background and in sleep mode. I expect gradual improvement.

    I'm not so optimistic like you, let's hope you're right and I'm wrong.

    very disappointed with my battery now. I find that it heats up very often too ever since the update to Cyan.
    I would not last 5 hours w/o it going below 20%.

    I know I use a lot of whatsapp and I know it a power drainer, but even if I fully charge at night, i wake up with 80% 5 hours later.

    Just wanted to mention with regard to battery that before I installed GDR1 for 8.1 with Cyan, I consistently got a super-hot corner near the top right, even if I was just browsing the web. It was really, really hot. Since 8.1 GDR1, that hot corner has now become a warm corner and the battery is better, but not wildly better.

    I bought my Lumia 925 recently and I only used it for about a week with windows phone 8.0 and then the cyan update came. I'm not sure if this happens because the battery was new then but I can definitely say that the cyan update improved the battery life of my phone. I have 5 email accounts set to sync as items arrive and 12 apps allowed to run in the background and I can easily get about 17 hours of battery life, which is fine for me. I don't play any games or watch videos but I browse a lot and I take a few photos every day. I'm very satisfied with its battery life.

    Unfortunately not good. I was using 4G all the time and it really sucks your battery dry fast. Anyway I would go back to 3GB but what's the point? I need a faster data connection. I just dropped the whole denial thing and accepted that L925 was not good in terms of battery consumption so I just carry along a power bank and additional charger.

    With official cyan i can get between 13-16 hours. 3g on all the time (due to network instability the phone keeps changing from 2g to 3g which harms the battery i think), facebook, whatsapp, browsing and 5m-10mins of youtube per day, a few calls and sms. Standby time is not bad also but i would be happy to get 20 hrs with the same usage, i am not sure if the update (major or minor) can achieve that considering all the new features and that it is a 2000mah battery, its my wish

    I keep a charger with me when I go to work. I'm running 8.1 gdr 1 on my 925 and was watching YouTube videos for about an hour and a half. Went from 100% to around 93%. Went down to 85 after 20-30 minutes of web browsing then I went and played Xbox, occasionally playing on phone between BF4 matches. When I put it on the charger last night I was somewhere between 25-34%.

    Edit: Still don't have cyan either.

    I just got a brand new 925 and here in Brazil we already have cyan available for it. Do you guys recommend that I ignore this update? Or go to 8.1 through DP (without cyan)?

    Thanks.

    I've given it a month. I can't seem to find what the issue is with the battery.

    whatsapp texting seems to make the phone hot. Not warm, not mild. Hot.. so hot i can feel the case get warm enough.
    otherwise if i dont text, browsing baconit (reddit) or reading doesnt seem to kill any battery. I can go HOURS and HOURS.

    I think if anyone else might be free to try, use the phone BUT dont use the Keyboard. Read, watch or listen to music. It doesn't consume much.

    Then open any texting app. whatsapp is my choice but whatever. Try texting for thirty minutes straight and have a nice conversation. The phone gets warm and the 30 minutes wouldve shaven at LEAST 15% battery off.

    anyone willing to confirm this? :(

    What I can confirm is that the 8.1 Cyan is not for people that have to work with the phone, my battery have to last at least 12 hours without "savings". With 8.1 it last 6-7 hours tops, with 8.0 12 hours is always guaranteed.

    The notification center is great but I love battery, so proudly go for 8.0 that is a great software.

    I have a month old 925 from AT&T and I think I am going to hold off until they roll out the next update... the feedback here doesn't sound convincing at all.

    You can experiment the 8.1 and if you don't like the battery stats just downgrade with the Nokia recovery tools.

    3days ago bought l925, updated to cyan asap. It's being an induction stove. Is cyan the culprit? (all background tasks are not allowed except WhatsApp and fb) I do use them little heavily.
