    Well, apps still can only do work in background every 30 minutes.. so I'd look for something with higher capabilities, and there, only system apps and Cortana come to my mind. I had an 820 before my 930 and tried Cortana there (I'm german, so change of language there) and the battery drained really fast. I didn't even bother changing the language for Cortana on my 930 (I don't like talking to my phone) and I don't have any problems, so it's really possible Cortana is the problem here..

    no all new phones heat up on the first day due to initial syncing of accounts etc,cortana doesnt heat up or reduce battery life on my 720 and 820 for me atleast though i can confirm that a hard reset and restoring of data does cause my phones(including my nexus 5,z10,720,820) to heat up and drain battery rapidly

    Isn't that 30 minute background update reduced to 1 minute in 8.1. That's what I've read.

    The phone does get hot, and i have noticed "heat warnings" on some apps like camera apps so this must be the norm.

    I like the phone, and would not send it back yet. As a another user mentioned - the camera, i also have an issue with the sub par camera. But this only seems to be in low light. When you take pics when its a nice day, you really cant beat the pictures. I am guessing it just takes some laying with and getting used to in order to produce stunning looking pictures with the pureview lumia devices.

    I havnt really got to try the camera in actual low light (just indoors at tech stores), but low light is very challenging regardless which phone's camera we talk about. 920 was amongst the first that had decent low light, but obviously it's still not anywhere near a GOOD picture. Bu it's still a crapton better than most competitors can do in the same lighting.

    it's a bit different, the apps can still only do a real update every 30 minutes, but can now schedule something like live tile updates that happen every minute. Simplified, the app can schedule changes every 30 minutes that get changed more often.


    It's clear that it heats up in the beginning, at least when restoring from a backup (uncompressing app archives etc), but I have it for 6 days now, and to me the heat issue seems at least a bit caused by cortana/english language. After all, the battery life is not at all bad for me - even a bit better than on my 820.

    My 930 hasn't arrived yet, but on my 920 I always take low light pictures with Microsoft Camera rather than Nokia Camera. They come out much better; try this on the 930 and see what results you get!

    My 930 was very hot at the first week, maybe because I was installing apps and messing around with it. But now it's ok and doesn't get so hot - it can get hot under heavy mobile data usage or navigation but that happens with all phones. My brother's 5S gets hot under the same situation.

    Send it back OP. Sounds like you picked up a lemon of a handset. Hopefully the next one was build in a factory where the quality controls are in place and observed.

    can somebody confirm that my solution is working? just wondering if that was realy the update of apps that couzing that problem with hot phone and battery draing fast, it works for me, and now even when i charging the phone its stay cool.
    You are not the only one who noticed that.. It has been the same with my 720 and 520 since Lumia Black.
    After factory reset the battery lasts for 4 days of medium usage (all 3rd party apps installed and used).
    After updating the system apps the phone is heating a lot and battery is drained quite quickly (max. 2 days).
    I have a feeling that somebody in nokia/microsoft f*cked up someting pretty badly about half a year ago and nobody cares..

    That's exactly what I want to say. The problem seems to be the software Nokia Camera. It does produce noisy/blur pictures at low night circumstance without flash. The native camera is handling fine.

    So far being used 2days with normal heat and battery life. I did one hard reset and several soft resets(volume down + power button).
    I don't know if a soft reset has done the trick. But you guys can give it a shot first, if you are hesitating to do a factory reset.

    I would agree with most others and say that initially the phone will have terrible battery life and get extremely warm - I had this "issue" too when I first bought my 1020 and I was going to return it, had I not waited two weeks I would've. The OS/phone is trying to set everything up, create new files and caches/databases during first-time use WHILST you're trying to use it, so of course it will get hot. Wait 2-3 weeks without resetting or doing anything risky and if it doesn't improve by then you've definitely got a lemon

    With a moderate use, including 0.5hr streaming video, 1hrs above browsing websites, 0.5hrs playing music, 10 background tasks running and taking several pictures/videos, I still have 30% battery remain when I reached my home.

    That's enough to me for a daily usage.

    Just been using the dt-900 wireless charger with my 930. You think the device gets hot on normal use ;)

    doesn't it have like a 2420 or something battery? My 900 has lower than that and can last longer...
    Does it actually get so hot that I shouldn't get it? I have a upgrade and dont know what to get and thought that the 930 was gonna be perfect for me.

    it does equip with a bigger battery, but at the same time it also equips with more powerful hardwares (e.g 1080p display) which may lead to heavier power consumption. I would say the heat is fairly acceptable after my phone began to work normally.

    Lumia 930 is the second best WP phone i have owned by far. I just wish the speaker could be louder. Other than that, I am happy with it.

    Also, you need to remember it's carrying a quad core processor, not dual, and 2gb RAM.

    Frankly, I'm impressed that companies can provide what are in reality very powerful hand held units with surprisingly small power requirements. It really is impressive imo.

    It is indeed quite weird. Hell, when shopping for laptops it seems hard to run into models that would have a 2,2+ ghz CPU. Obviously though it's not the ghz alone that matters and the laptops with less ghz are still likely to be more powerful, but technology sure is crazy these days :D
