    No, same same for me
    Generally pretty good though, easily getting me through one day of usually heavy usage. usually around 30-40% left when I get home :)

    I haven't notice any improvement in my battery life since I installed denim and people keep saying they can achive 2-3 days out of their 930. I really wanna see a battery usage profile showing 48 or 72 hours since last chagre from a phone that is actually beeing used
    I don't see a reason why people would lie about battery life on a forum, but since you don't seem to believe anyone, I'll take a screenshot when I'll have to charge my phone.

    I guess i'll have to do the hard reset on mine soon. Something is draining it and i cant find what. 20% drop over night isn't normal. This wasn't happening before the update. Hey cortana off, not on the desktop anymore, wifi, bluetooth, celuar also off. And still drains 20% over night doing nothing...

    PS: location services were on all the time even before Denim, but i need them. I only turned off motion data...

    He is right you know, some people do not lie but omit facts like using their phone as a statue, ok I'm exaggerating but what he is talking and so do I is real usage with all it's functionalities enabled.
    For example, I always have on
    - Wi-Fi with all features on (wifi sense etc)
    - Bluetooth having the DT-903 nearby always for notifications.
    - NFC
    - Location On
    - Cortana On
    - Auto Brightness
    - Outlook + Gmail
    - I am always in Roaming
    - Find my phone ON
    - Hey Cortana ON

    Allowed in background:

    - Facebook
    - WhatsApp
    - Twitter (official app)
    - Store
    - Weather
    - Pin.it
    - Disqus
    - OneDrive

    I frequently use:
    - Tubecast (full hd clips) like 20-40 min per day
    - Skype 3h per day cumulated usage, only text
    - WhatsApp (few minutes only)
    - Instagram (only browsing) 30 min per day
    - Camera , few pictures per day
    - Here Transit 2 times per day
    - People app where I check for news on facebook and twitter.very often, like each time I unlock the phone.
    - Internet explorer quite a lot
    - Pin.it browsing pins

    Using all this it goes down in 6 hours.
    Now don't tell me that having all these on and my pattern usage, you can juice out 2 days because it's completely bullocks.

    Exactly what I wanted to say. What's the point of spending so much money on a phone if you're gonna dissable everything and use it for checking the time...buy a watch instead. I bought that phone for a reason and I want to use whatever it can offer. Tho it does get me thro the day mostly, I always have that horrible feeling will it last until I got home or not

    To be honest I don't. If you're so busy and away from home for a whole day, you probably won't be playing any games. For me games are the only thing draining the battery like crazy. Not all, but most. I usually only play games while at home, so I don't really care about it then. L930 didn't fail me once when I needed it to last me for a long time. I have Cortana disabled since I don't really use it. English is not my native language, so it's a bit odd for me to use it that way except when I'm alone, so for me it's just a gimmick. Most apps are disabled to run in the background, except the messaging apps and instagram for notification. I didn't limit my usage of the phone for the sake of the battery, and I don't intend to. You have to accept the fact that the battery is what it is, and it won't magically change if you write on and on about how it's "bad". You knew that before you bought the phone. I wouldn't change my phone for any other. And if I were to lose my phone, I wouldn't hesitate one bit to buy the same phone.

    Just because you do all this does not mean the battery is bad. You are a heavy user and should look for another bit of kit that has a bigger battery (1520, HAM2, LG G3 or similar). I read a bit before getting this phone and knew it would be fine for my level of use. I is primarily a phone after all. With what you describe you are gonna struggle no matter what you use so carry a powerbank and relax.

    No, you're right. No phone or tablet on the market right now can handle his usage! LOL! Just from the skype messaging nonstop would have killed my Notes. I remember seeing this company called Blu made an Android phone with 5,000 mah... That could MAYBE get through the day I've had a ton of devices, just check my signature. There is no way any device will make him happy. Please consider a battery case, or if you get an Android device with a removable back or even a windows phone device as well, get a MUGEN battery! Those are huge battery packs that will allow you to get through the whole day! :) Best of luck.

    You deal in absolutes. You waste too much battery (you have Wifi, roaming, bluethooth and other studd 24/7 ON, which waste too much battery even though you DON'T need them 24/7 and you can turn them on in 2 seconds, so this horrible battery life is basically your fault). On the other hand you think that there are people that don't even use their phones.
    I make several phone calls, send messages, check my facebook new feed, download and read some .pdf files, use flipboard A LOT, watch a few videos on Youtube and listen to music for a few hours a day, but my battery can EASILY last two full days.
    Try turning off location, bluetooth, nfc, roaming when you don't them. I use my phone quite a lot, you use your phone quite a lot, so why does my last longer? Because I don't waste battery. I use nfc and bluetooth when I need them.

    You are exactly the guy I'm talking about. You ask people to turn their phone features off just because YOU don't use them. I need Bluetooth because I have a plantronics (which I use for call meetings) the DT-903 for light notifications (since MS didn't bother to make phones with led notif) and the Wi-Fi for faster speed since I am in roaming. Sorry but all those things are crucial to me all day long. I'm no kid who keeps his phone just to talk to his friends. I bought a high end because I need both of the worlds, business and fun.
    You tell people to turn off location, are u frickin' serious? There goes my quiet hours or location based reminders just because you don't use ur phone and don't see those features important.

    I use each and every one of my phone's features, but this...sounds like an addiction. You don't need them 24/7.
    Besides,turning them on takes 2 seconds. If you have the time to discuss about your phone's battery life, then I'm sure that you can wait 2 seconds, right?

    If you want your battery to last you must do a hard reset+softreset+restore from backup. Do this and your battery will improve a lot.
    Actualy I did it on my 1020 and now the battery last tha way it should.

    That's actually a good way to slightly improve battery life or even deal with some problems like lag. Although, I haven't done this yet to my 930, it has worked on all my previous Android phones.

    for TheLumaniac - Last week I bought my 1020 ( used but in excelent conditions ) and I was loosing 50% of my battery from 8.00 till 12.30.
    2 days ago I did the hard reset thing and now my battery lasts from 01.00 till 22.00 pm and still having 35% of juice, with many calls, some photos and webbrowsing. So for me it workd and now I am impressed of my 1020 s battery.You should try it..

    Oh no, I think that you misunderstood me. I know that a hard reset can improve battery life, but I haven't tried yet on my 930 because it's battery life is pretty awesome at the moment.

    I moved from L925 to L930 2 weeks ago.
    Same usage style (I think that I use L930 more often as it is still new for me) - L925 battery life time according to Insider Pro app was less than 1 day (I used L925 since Sept 2013), for L930 Insider Pro shows 2d 06h, max life time in current week is 3d 13h 47m

    I find out that if you turn off the option double tap to wake up and if you put the brightens to medium your battery life will improve drastically

    I've owned two Lumia Icons and they'd just sit there and idle overheat all my battery away with very little usage out of me. It was more miserable-ness than I could handle, especially seeing as I'd already sacrificed my SD slot, LTE and MMS to use them on AT&T.

    This 930; however, was updated to denim the moment I got it out of the box, and it's given me EXCELLENT battery life.
