    I use for music on my 1hr commute, heavy web browsing throughout the day, plenty of phone fiddling around, may a bit of youtube and phone calls - so quiet heavy using! Honestly it gives 8-10hrs. Better then iPhone 5c, not as good but close to Xperia Z2, better then SG4.(I have access to a few phones thanks to family and my obsession with mobile technology)...1520 beats them all and equals Z2. But fir the average user its fine, and heavy user it good enough .

    Batt backup on my 930 is ok. Batt lasts for 15hrs with no problem.
    What bothers me is overheating in low right corner (screen facing me) and that purple tint on grey areas.
    I suggest you to hold for a while to see if that will be solved with future updates. Before 930 I had 925 and have to say that now I'm sorry that I didn't wait a bit more. Otherwise, phone is gorgeous (I have white one), screen is fantastic (beside above mentioned problem) and camera is ok. Not as good as before Cyan (problems with macro), but it gets job done.

    I guess I have been spoilt by the LGG2 in that it has shifted my expectations for what moderate to heavy use should constitute. After the G2 I would define heavy use as driving to work downloading torrents in the background on LTE while listening to tuneinradio and also using google navigation with screen on full brightness and bluetooth nfc etc turned on, followed by an hour or so of asphalt gaming or video watching during my lunch break, downloading torrents through wifi throughtout the day, then on my way home some more LTE torrenting and satnav use, with tunein radio in the background, everything on, everything syncing
    And in the same time wirelessly charging your Prius. 😁

    You have it good nonetheless. Try 1020. Wake up at 7am, with medium use you run out of juice by 3pm. With heavy use you have battery life for two hours.

    Funnily enough I do own a Prius, but we are not quite there to charge it with a LGG2 unfortunately :(

    Hi ! I say the 930 will cover your needs . I'm really a lite to medium user with my 930 running 3 emails every hour along with twitter (Tweetium) running with 9 other apps in the background, about 10 to 20 mins of calls and around 30 text messages, also the odd time fooling with Cortana and I left with 30% battery at the end of the day. Also I don't need to leave my phone on to charge over night either. First charge wireless it got a little hot, but nothing like my 925 now. Hope this helps..

    I can get roughly 1.5-2days use. Not a very heavy user. I have 2 exchange accounts, outlook checking every hour and a handful of apps in background.

    Music each morning and arvo to and from work along with nextgen

    This is my first WP device before I had HTC One. To be honest I love the device, but for me battery is very poor. I dont use GPS, listen to music a bit of youtube, check tiles like e-mail etc. I have to charge the phone again around 4pm. Was here looking for tips how to save battery life that doesn't include options like switching off all syncs, because thats what the phone is for.

    If you haven't already, I'd recommend giving it a few days as it seems to improve. Also, some options which might be on that drain battery is the facebook option with text messages (not sure if this is in 8.1) or connecting to Xbox live.

    Hey guys! So i got my 930 two days ago and today i decided to write down my battery consumption just in case someone in the future will look at this post.
    It is the second day with my lumia and therefore it is the second time i fully charge it (battery should get a bit better with more charges).
    During the entire day i was using the one-note app to take note of what i was doing and the left battery percentage.
    So lets start...
    9.30 AM: plugged phone out.
    Wifi ON and GPS ON.
    Took out to look at the time a few times.
    From 10.30 to 11.10: Wifi OFF, looked at the time a few times and took two photos ( battery at 97%).
    Music streaming with headphones till 11.50, posted a photo in FB, checked likes and comments on the photo 2-3 times and turned OFF the GPS (battery at 82%).
    12.28 kept streaming music up to now, battery at 74% checked a FB comment once and answered.
    13.47 stopped streming, used IE to look at train times and browsed WP Central to look at updates on purple tint issue, by the way i just realized screen flickers when on EDGE network (especially whites) browsed the internet to see if it happens to everyone and apparently it does! (used a lot of White screens to check the fault) battery at 57%.
    14.56 used phone to browse the internet, answered 4-5 posts on wp Central , made 2 short calls, 4-5 sms. Battery down to 44%
    (Network is really bad because i'm on the train and there are a lot of underground passages, so phone keeps jumping EDGE-HDSPA and it's a little hard to load internet pages.
    15.30 turned off data connection 40% battery life
    17.25 done nothing 35% (2.5% per hour with no data connection on)
    19.15 sent two texts, checked time few times 32%
    22.52 used phone to take some photos (around 10), checked time a few Times, played with settings for 10-15 minutes and battery is now to 21%
    23.09 finished writing down notes on battery life and checked spelling mistakes (or at least tried ;) ), battery at 20%.
    Plugged in!
    Final thoughts:
    I was happy about how the day went, i used the phone a lot during the train trip and realized that on a normal day i'll make it through the day with no problems at all :D
    Problem is (sorry for OT) that the phone has a lot of other problems!!!
    First of all the purple tint! I know Nokia is working on a solution, but it is still pretty anoying!
    Second problem is the screen flickering! It's not a major problem as usually where i live there is HDSPA everywhere and always, but it is still a stupid fault on what should be a flagship!
    Third problem is the funnyest: The rear speaker pops around 4 seconds after everytime it makes a sound or should. Like locking the screen or using the keyboard.
    This happens also with vibrate on, even if no sound is made the speaker still pops as if it turned on and off even without making any sound.
    Had same issue on my old 1520, therefore i immagine it is just bad phone quality by Nokia.

    I don't get any problems with my Lumia 930 : Tint, speaker etc. Just return your phone and get a replacement! Also switch some apps off that don't need running in the background. I find the Lumia 930 battery capable for a heavy user. Tested against my Xoeria Z2 and it s just as good in most cases I used- gets through the day and I do you use it alot. 1520 is the best from my experience of heavy use.

    My previous phone was a 1520 i found it difficult to handle for every day use, its battery was phenomenal lasted three to 3.5 days with average use, my lumia 930 has the same apps and settings and everything but lasts two days some times 1.5 days of average use still really good but no where near the 1520

    Mine has been fine and had no issues with anything. One really weird thing was I decided to drain battery till it turned off then charge it to full. But when I reached 4% it stayed that way for an hour which was bizarre but good anyway.

    Careful because the lithium ion batteries like to be kept topped up.
    Lion should be topped up when it falls to about 50-65% charge remaining.

    Discharging lions increases their cycles of use, thereby shortening their lifespan.

    It is the old NiCad & NiMH which must be discharged and then fully charged, esp the old NiCads, to prevent memory effect...

    To be honest after about 2 weeks kind of disappointing with battery life. I wish they put Snapdragon 801 in this phone as it is more power efficient. I have to charge phone during the day. about an hour of proper use drains 50% of my battery. I have a lot of things switched off. I have FB notification but I never get any notification on tiles until aI actually open FB app, why is that?

    An hour used drains 50%? That sounds too much. Something weird must be going on. The battery life ain't very good but it shouldn't be that bad.

    My first report is everything so far is perfect,except the battery life. But. This might be early software or just that it's needing a good run in. But it does worry me because less than 3 minutes after unplugging it from charging and with no usage it's already dropped to 95%. It seems to drop fairly fast from say 100% to 85% fast then slows down. I have only 2 apps in the background What's App and Instagram no NFC,GPS nothing else,only using 3G full signal at home. I drained it till it turned off and charged it up fully overnight on mains not wireless charger. But as soon as I unplugged it the % dropped to 98%. Does anyone know why this happens?? One other oddity is when it was at 4% battery it stayed that way for over an hour. Weird. Kind of reminds me of the poor battery life on the Galaxy S4 I once had

    With lithium ion & lithium polymer, u must keep it topped up at all times.
    Try to recharge once it falls to 50% capacity.
    Never let lion or lipo drop to 4%!
    Lions & lipos are different to the old NiCads & NiMH's which preferred to be fully discharged to prevent the memory effect...

    Tbh coming from the lg g2 I am quite disappointed with the battery life, I get up for work from 7 am and find it running out by 6pm with moderate to heavy use of a couple of hours of games, video watching, gps navigation, web browsing and whatsapp. My g2 would still be at 40-50%
    Probably because the g2 has a 3000mah battery.
