    Took my phone off the charger at 1:24 pm on Thursday. It was down to ~40% around 7 pm last night, though it apparently quickly ate up the rest and died (was mashed into couch cushions) around 10 pm. Still better than 30 hours on a charge. I can live with that ;)

    I envy you 928 owners...on my 3rd 920 since launch day and the same battery problems. Ruined what would've been an amazing experience with the device. :(

    Running around 24 hours on light-medium usage now. Throw some long games sessions in and it plummets as expected, but otherwise calling, texting, IM'ing, browsing etc hardly dent it.

    I have both devices and I agree that the 928 battery life is comparable.

    What's the best battery app to monitor the life of the battery? I'm getting roughly 5-6 hours of battery life on lte WiFi off Bluetooth on NFC off

    Anyone notice a change since updating GDR2/Amber? My wife has had an issue (Lumia 928) where she charges it overnight, or during the day and the battery indicator shows maybe half. Happened right after she updated. Soft reset fixed it initially, but now it seems to be back. Advised her to let it drain dead, then give it a good charge without use and see what happens.

    Anyone else see this issue, or similar since upgrading?

    my wireless charging sometimes just stops working in the middle of the night. in the morning, while its still plugged in, check if it indicates that it is plugged in.

    i noticed i get FAR more battery life on my 928 than i did on my android phone. i can easily get thru a whole day of use before i really have to think about giving it a charge. on my android phone i'd be surfing the web for about a half an hour and was down to 75% or less battery life.

    Charged the phone up Monday night (wireless charging plate) and went to the golf course Tuesday for most of the morning with LTE on. Took a few pictures and sent a few text while playing. Afterwards, made a few phone calls and updated a couple of apps over wifi and installed 480px. By late afternoon, the phone was < 30%. Put the phone on the charger last night and charged it up and took it off the charger. With NO BT, Wifi or LTE on, the phone was down to 49% after 7 hours off charge.

    The only thing I did different was install 480px, but now I killed the background application this morning and will see what happens.

    Also, can someone chime in about this situation. I have it set for Wifi to stay alive when screen is off. Every time I turn the phone on, it appears the Wifi is trying to reconnect (the wifi icon animates). So is Wifi on or not. Also, it is hard to tell that if I have data connection on and Wifi on also, which is the active one? I assume Wifi, but hard to tell with this phone.

    Thanks

    Since the upgrade I have noticed a battery drain. I don't even use my phone that much it drains. Have all the apps, that drain the battery, off. It sucks.

    I have a great app idea.....

    This app should show all the batter usage of all other apps to see what ones drain the most power.

    Battery Performance. It costs a few $'s but is a great app and it doesn't appear to drain the battery.

    It seems to me that battery life has, greatly, decreased since Amber or GDR3 (not sure which to blame).
    The attachment shows my batter drain, while sleeping!!!
    I took the phone off the charger around 2AM and it gave me the low battery warning around 9AM.
    That's, pretty much, the entire batter draining in 8 hours with NO activity.
    Hehehe...
    I used to be quite pleased with the battery performance.
    Not anymore, though...

    Well, I disabled glance and all background tasks, charged, and let sit while I slept.
    Battery went from 99% to 3% from midnight to 8AM.
    So, I can say that the problem isn't background tasks or glance.
    Hehehe...
    Another thread claimed that wifi that was on, but not doing anything, was a major suck (like 5% per hour).
    I'll try disabling wifi, bluetooth, and location, tonight.

    I disabled wifi, bluetooth, and location and it only used 6% of the batter, overnight!!!
    That's with glance always on and 7-10 background tasks.

    And here is last night's drain with background tasks, wifi, and bluetooth on (location was off).
    I guess we can, pretty well, define the culprit.
    That's really lame, though, as I want my weather apps to use my location.

    I didn't notice the drain until GDR3 or Amber (not sure which) and I've always had location on.
    I wonder if there's a bug or if there is just a lot more apps using location than there used to be.
