    I don't think so. You'll probably will get through half a day with that heavy usage.
    With very heavy use (1 hour of gaming, 2 or 3 hours of screen on and data on) surely won't last a day. But I think it's a good battery performance.

    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..
    How much less efficient 800 are than 801? I think it's pretty much the same.

    Mine is great, tbh. I'm coming from a Samsung Galaxy S II that, based on my usage (lots of texts, some facebook and twitter, like 30 minutes of browsing, auto brightness, some photos, etc) would generally go 12.5 - 14 hours, depending. So normally, wake up at 7, plug it back in around 19:30 to 21:00, which is how I remember it to be.

    My 930, with similar usage, goes 18 (lowest ever) to 30 hours. I don't let it die, but it's on the battery for 20 hours a day and I generally go to bed after 20 hours with 25-35% left, so I'd say I could get 25. Mind, I don't baby it at all, I use what I want when I want, though I do turn NFC and Location off at all times, but I never use battery saver. On the whole I'm really pleased. It can't last two days for me under my normal usage, but if you told me this morning "We have no electricity until tomorrow evening" I could make it last two days.

    I received my 930 last week via GiffGaff and it's been mostly a pleasurable experience so far.

    I'm an Android man, for quite a long time, and have loved every iteration of it so far. I used to run a WP8 launcher on my Nexus 4 and loved the look (it was actually much more configurable than official WP8) and always had a soft spot for the OS. I've never had or would want an iPhone, no matter how good it was meant to be.

    Anyway, so far the Lumia 930 is pretty good - all google contacts/emails/files transferred successfully, as well as text messages. Music is another matter - not liking the closed system with regards to this and the lack of native flac support. Deezer app is excellent though.

    Battery has been pretty exceptional compared to the Nexus 4 (which I always thought was OK). I can easily go 2 days without a charge and this is with email/facebook/texting/phoning/and web browsing.

    It's a slick handset, and will get better with updates....

    Battery life is pretty poor on mine, I get similar battery life to my almost 2 year old 920. Pretty much every day my battery drops rapidly from when I take it off charge, after about half an hour it drops to around 85%. I took mine off the charge just 40 minutes ago and following some browser use, checking wpcentral, facebook, news reading and sending a couple messages on messenger, I'm sitting on 80% currently. That's 1% every two minutes.

    It has decent standby battery life but under any sort of use it is really poor. If you're like me and use the browser and social networking apps such as messenger a lot then you can forget about the 930 lasting you a full day.

    Battery life is okay, on a par with the 1020 it replaced and leagues ahead of my work iPhone 5S. Considering the 930's far superior screen to both of these I'm pretty chuffed.

    Has anybody checked the Lumia 930 with update 1 to WP 8.1.

    I think the battery life is a bit better now.

    Coming from IPhone 5, battery life of 930 is way better! And as Niek said, with update 1 it got even better!

    I think the last update improved battery life, which was always very good for me. I have 80% now (9am to 13:25am). I've been played for at least 20 minutes, browsing for 30 minutes, cloud music for 40 minutes, a lot of twitter and whatsapp. LTE and WiFi ON all the time.

    Very good performance! Seems even better now. But could be placebo, only one day after update.

    I have a Lumia 925 and I've been comparing it to my 930, in terms of battery life. Now, I've installed the exact same apps, I use the exact same theme/colours/lockscreen/settings, same apps are disabled/enabled for background activity and the phones have been fully charged. The 925 outshines the 930, by at least 5 hours - and this is with glance and double-tap-to-awake activated. Both phones had WIFI and Bluetooth on during this "test".

    Even though the 930 has an extra 400 mAh battery capacity, its more powerful and larger screen and processor are both major draws on said power source. Perhaps not by as much as five hours though, and doesn't fit in with my experience coming from a 1020 which has similar innards to the 925.

    i had de 925 now got 930. i do the exact same things for about the same time. not a heavy user. and for me the 930 is better than 925, with the 925 i took it off the plug at about 10,30 am and at 1,00 am i used to have a bit more than 50%, with this baby at the same time i got more than 70%. the thing is that the 930 is much better on standby. but if you are a heavy user you should get the 1520... i'm very happy with my 930. go for it

    Same here, 930 is really good at stand by. 925 was at least 30% worst in battery life, but still good IMHO..

    Coming from a previous iPhone 5 experience I must say I am positively impressed by my first week of 930 usage. I usually leave the phone on charge overnight (airplane mode) and take it off around 7am. Typical use 10-20 calls per day, e-mail traffic from 2 main accounts (1 exchange, 1 gmail), few pics here and there and (not heavy) FB+Twitter checking, some explorer browsing. No games whatsoever, no gps navigator/maps.

    The battery level is usually around 30-40% by 8pm (ready for a wireless or wired top-up at home). Not a super champion of battery longevity but still a pretty decent performer, especially if compared to the iPhone 5. I am definitely a satisfied user, looking forward to the improvements that should come with the future firmware/software updates.

    I like the stand by time, but hate the on screen time. I am not a power user and one charge will get me thru 1 day and a half usually, using H+ and wi-fi always on.

    However it's much better than my former Lumia 820.

    Despite what many say I get very good standby on my 930. My device can do one week easily without any charging.

    When it comes to battery drain when using it, then it starts to suck more battery of course. I have set my display brightness to high so it consumes more. I could imagine that I could use the device for 4 - 5 hours non-stop until I run out of juice.

    All in all, battery life is acceptable I think.

    I find that the battery lasts about 18hours with moderate use:

    > 2 email accounts syncing every 15 mins,
    > whatsapp couple of hours a day
    > brightness set to medium
    > WiFi about 5 hours
    > frequent browse on Facebook and people hub
    > a few short calls and texts.

    Battery could be better find myself with about 10% before I get to bed

    My battery life has gotten better since I got denim. Now I make it through the day with battery to spare, as often before I had to plug it in few hours before going to bed.

    I'd say my usage is pretty heavy, because I browse the web a lot. IE isn't very kind to the battery, but other apps, even Netflix are good to use for hours.

    Anyone on Denim still notice an heat issues when using the phone? L930 on Cyan used to get hot fairly quickly even with browsing use...
