    OK but why the hell has my battery just now dropped to 94% doing nothing on standby in the space of ten minutes right from being unplugged??
    If you top it up at 50% "several times", it should hold on to the upper end of its voltage longer.

    Unfortunately due to last year's Snapdragon 800's less efficient processor, and possibly due to the less efficient version of the amoled screen that Samsung sells to Nokia, the battery life of the Lumia 920 will never be that great..

    Yeah, I think so.
    Might have something to do with selling to Microsoft.
    Might just be balancing the budget with a cheaper old processor to pay for a more expensive amoled screen?

    Can't wait for a so called "932" update to appear with the new processor in 6 months time...

    Peter you know that by the time they release one with Snapdragon 801, all the competition will already release on new octa-core 64 bit processor. Which we will have to wait until Microsoft decides to patch the system again in a year time to allow for support.

    Yes, Ms & Nokia must get their timing right.
    Eg, last year's Sept 13 Galaxy Note 3 & Oct 13 Lumia 1520 both have good timing with the adoption of Snapdragon 800.
    Now, Sep 14's all new Galaxy Note 4 & forthcoming Lumia 1525 said to both use 2014's Snapdragon 805, 3-4 GB RAM, & QHD 2k 5.7-6.0" screens!

    2015's replacement for Lumia 930 must match 5" specs of both 2015's HTC One M9 & Samsung Galaxy 6!

    Meantime, it is possible for Nokia to release an immediate "stop gap" that must be released by December this year at the half way mark, where they can simply drop a Snapdragon 801 into the existing 930 & call it a 931 update/facelift etc, before an all new model is released at the 12 month mark to take on 2015's HTC One M9 & Samsung's Galaxy 6...

    Mine does this too. In fact all three of my 930's has done this. I believe it's normal although it's a minor annoyance.

    My battery is pretty good as long as I have a charger handy. Got one in the car, one on my computer, one near the tv, one at work, one in the bedroom and the wireless battery pack.

    Mine does too, but only when charged wirelessly. With usb it's much better.

    Im planing to switch to l930 from 5s.

    Can you do some comparison? My battery on my 5s is holding like 24h top, using tapatalk, instagram, viber, maybe 20mins of chrome. Most of background app turned off. Bluetooth always off.

    Mostly if i go out i take off the charger at 10am and i need to put it back on charger around 00 or 1am

    I just dont want to jump to lumia and get worse battery life comparing to 5s.

    Also if you can do headphone (in ear) comparison i would be very grateful. I just want to know if lumia930 is not too quiet.

    My lumia 930 does much better than my girlfriends 5s in terms of battery life. I use my lumia much more than she uses her 5s and still i manage to get a full day wile she has to plug in at around 7pm.
    Dont worrie, it should have better battery life :) as for the headphone i cant say much, but i never had to complaint about my L930

    I think the battery performance depends on the OS. The 2420 mAh battery is small compared to others but I don't think the battery should last this short. Hopefully the Denim update will improve it.

    Battery life with low to medium use is pretty good.
    With mobile data off (I don't have a data plan), it easily lasts over a day and I can push it to 2 days as well.

    I find the standby battery very good, was at a busy day at work with data enabled, didn't get to do much bar check the odd message and news reading over lunch, went home and battery was 65% after 9h at work

    But on browser I've to say battery life is quite sad. Lucky to get 2h on it

    I think this is the problem with OLED/AMOLED screens, they consume more power when you use it to browse but save more power when idle. It has to do with white color used by lots of web sites.

    Highest connection speed- 2G (I don't have a data plan, so anything higher is useless)
    Switch WiFi, Bluetooth, location etc. on only when necessary.

    Thats it! :)

    @zainsul, i hate to say this but we buy smartphones to do more stuff (or try at least :)), not to turn everything off because the manufacturer didn't even bother to put a proper battery.

    I agree that turning things on/off will save the battery but it defeats the purpose of having a SMARTphone that's pack with features, don't you think? And to be honest, 2 days of battery with data off and most of the connectivity items turned off, that is not impressive. Other Android counterparts last as long if longer with everything turned ON. Yeah, they pack a bigger battery, we know, but that's what we expected from the high end lumias and apart from the 1520, battery life on WP is huge let down. My 920 can testify with 15h of battery life, whatever i do.

    That's exactly the hassle i want to get rid off. I want to use my phone, not to play "battery manager 101"

    I fully accept what you are saying. But my view on this is different (probably because I come from the Symbian-based N8).

    I do not feel the need to keep everything on all the time, especially when I know that I will not be using it for some time.
    Take the example of a car: You do not leave the engine, air conditioner etc. running when you sleep at night or when you will be in office for the next few hours. You turn everything off. I apply the same logic to my phone.

    Yes, it is a SMARTphone, packed with awesome features, but you do not use them all the time. It merely takes a couple of seconds to switch WiFi, location etc. on when needed.

    Also, my 2 days of battery life is with WiFi turned on when required (Facebook, Twitter, general browsing etc.) and also about 90 minutes of gaming.

    Again, I wish to reiterate that this is purely MY view and I do not wish to start a fight. Everyone is different, everyone's thinking and logic is different and I fully accept that.

    @zainsul, no worries, I'm not here to fight either :)

    Regarding the way you use your smartphone, to each his own, right? It's your usage and i entirely respect that.

    But for me (and maybe a lot of other users), i rely on location and bluetooth more often then not. I do turn off bluetooth when i don't need it for a while off course, but all the other settings are always on.

    It would actually be great if we could actually create some profiles in WP8.1. that may already be the case so if i'm completely off topic, let me know.

    For example, cortana knows when you are home or when you are leaving. Why not configure it to switch to 2g and wifi when you get home and turn off wifi and turn on 3g when you get out? Why not have a setting to enable battery saver over a period of time. For example, if my phone is not charging, i'd love battery saver to get on from 11pm-8am. All of that should be automatic after you configure your phone to your needs. It does take 2s to toggle things on/off but it's easy to forget sometimes. The goal of smartphones is to adapt to your needs, not you trying your best to compromise as much as you can.

    Agree fully with you.The profile suggestion, if implemented, would be extremely useful. I, apart from my N8's Xenon flash, miss the profile option in the Lumia 930. I had many profiles on my N8 to fit different situations.
    And I live in the UAE, so I do not have Cortana yet, but yes, the added level of customization would be very useful.
    But being a long time Symbian user, I have probably got used to compromising! :)
    Here's hoping that the Denim update, which will be rolled out to us first (and the 1520 and Icon), brings better battery management with it (just like 8.1 was an improvement over 8.0).

    Hi all,

    I'm looking for a Lumia 930 but I don't know if it can last a full day with my usage.

    This is my typical smartphone usage:
    - Wifi and GSP always on;
    - Cellular data on (3G, no LTE).

    - social networks (twitter, linkedin, facebook), wheather, whatsapp, skype and rss reader running in background.
    - 2 email/contacts accounts synced, one manually, one push.

    - 4 hours of heavy usage (during commute and launch break): listening to offline music, surfing the web, checking social networks/emails and news via rss reader;
    - 50-100 messages via whatsapp or sms;
    - pairing with fitbit via bluetooth once a day;
    - 10-20 minutes calling (rarely via viber);
    - 10-20 minutes of apps that use GPS: maps, transit or car sharing apps like car2go.

    I read that L930 battery life is not the best out there, but I didn't understand if with my typical usage it can last a whole day, it would be perfect for me to reach the end of the day (I mean 10 or 11 p.m.) with some extra juice, i.e. 10%.

    Thanks for all replies

    I don't think so. You'll probably will get through half a day with that heavy usage.

    4G on all the time + WiFi on too + a bunch of apps with background turned on = 1 day at least. Easily.
