    Hey Everyone! (this is my first post so I hope I'm doing everything correctly on the forums)

    I've had the 928 since September and have loved it apart from a couple minor bugs that I'm not going to get into right now. However, about a week ago, the battery life suddenly dropped. I'm not sure what my past discharge rate on standby was, but it has jumped up to around 4% per hour when just on standby with no use. I have glanced turned off and very minimal background tasks. (Battery, Bing Weather Facebook Beta and Twitter, that's all) I also am at my house with the Wi-Fi turned on and connected, but not being used. Do you guys have any tips to try to get the battery to get back to its original state.

    If I can't get anything to work I'll probably do a phone reset, but I'd rather not if possible.

    Thanks
    Marcus

    I also have the L928. And I don't have that problem, hope it will never happen as well. My WiFi is on 24/7 but the battery last very long if im not using it and I think the last OS update improved it even more. update your phone if you haven't yet maybe it will fix it..to update go to Settings>phone update

    Yeah, I'm using the latest software update, so unfortunately not much I can do there.

    My suggestion would be to track the past few apps you downloaded and start to uninstall from the latest to the point where you started to see the problem. One at a time and give it some time to show results. I suspect that one of the apps might be draining the battery faster due to an improper install or the like.

    I've already uninstalled all of the most recent apps, but thanks.

    Did you restart your phone? If you use a wireless charger it causes an issue with battery left being displayed as well. Mine does it at least once a week.

    I have done multiple restarts to no avail, although I do have a wireless charger that I sometimes use. I don't think that the charger is the problem because I have the same battery life using a cord.

    Its starting to seem like Nokia ain't anywhere near what it use to be. I would do a factory reset.

    Just curious, what are your discharge rates when the phone is on standby? (and let me know what phone you have )
