    Hello lumia 930 owners, i was really interested in buying this device, but i read that battery life isn't that good and would like to hear some of your opinions.
    I know there are a lot of defective devices, but i'd like to know how long the 930 battery lasts on a normal one!
    My usage: facebook, watsapp, stream music, a few messages, browser and little else.
    Do you think it would last a whole day?
    What were your experiences and how long does it last for you?
    Thanks!

    Statistically seeing, there probably aren't that many defective devices; it's just that the people with defective devices are much more inclined to share their experience on the web as opposed to those who have no issues and are satisfied

    Easily lasts me all day, usage varies but isn't necessarily that heavy by still alot/constant.

    With your usage as you explained a full day should be no problem

    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%

    Wow guys, thanks for the answers! I wasn't expecting so many! :D i'll probably make the jump and get rid of my Z1c for the 930 :)
    Usually with the Z1c i go to bed with 30-20% left.

    I've been real impressed with the battery life, but since I'm in the states I don't get LTE, just H+, not sure what affect that has.

    With your usage listed I can't see why it should not last a whole day for you.

    Not sure if I've got a defective phone but battery drains extremely quick from 100% to around 85%. Basically 30min of usage (emails and browsing using dark theme). Then it slows down a bit. Mine lasts just enough for the day, it's always below 5%, from 9AM till 1AM.

    I come from a HTC One M8 and I too am kind of dissapointed with the battery life. Though the M8 and G2 have about as good battery life you can get on a smartphone today (I've owned both and still have the M8). And the G2 has a 3000mAh battery and Lumia 930 has 2420mAh or something like that.

    My M8 I usually charge every third day. That's a luxury that is hard to give up but at the same time I understand it's far from all phones that performs that well when it comes to battery life. You have to take the good with the bad that comes with it.

    The kind of usage you list is also very very heavy usage that will suck most phones dry fast.

    Mine is kinda odd. When i first got it, it would do the hot potato and battery life was shocking. Now ive installed update 1... Hard reset it came up with battery lasting 1 day 4hours. Now after a week or so it come down to about 10h that's with wifi/bt/nfc off and only a few apps set to run in background, whatsapp, Bing Weather, Skype, Facebook, Cortana.

    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

    not to mentioned you are using gps navigation. that tends to drain a lot of batteries. if i am using it and i see that a large portion of the journey are straight roads with minor turns, i would put the phone to sleep but have the navigations running in the background for the turn by turn voice prompts. the phone doesn't heat up and the battery usage is a lot less compared to simply having the display turned on for the entire journey. (plug it in too when u drive).
