    I think my battery is lasting a lot longer since installing denim... I usually get a day and a bit out of it but since I put denim on it im getting nearer 2 days, and ive been playing with the new camera features etc?
    Anyone else notice this?

    I also think it has gotten a longer lifetime. I'm still doing some research, and it might also be the new "celluar data" on/off thing i'm using now with LTE, but so far it seems good since i now also use hey cortana, new camera features and stuff... But still, the battery life time improved from my average 1 day 3 hours to 1 day 6-10 hours. Looking good

    I am charging battery overnight and faced no issues so far. Also, the battery timings are great for me.

    It seems better but I haven't plotted it or anything. I use charging plates to keep mine topped up - like 2-3 short charges a day as this puts less stress on the battery I believe (heat is a slow killer). I rarely let mine fall below 50%. Standby drain I find is pretty awesome usually only 2-3% overnight.

    The Denim update has made my 930 battery life terrible. It's funny. I could not be happier with this phone. After the update my phone gets very hot to the touch and the battery lasts about 2 hours while the phone just sits there.
    I've seen some posts about removing Cortana from the start screen.
    Maybe I should do a reset?

    Any suggestions?

    If you've done most everything else, hard reset, something went wrong obviously.
    Removing Cortana is worth a try, but all else fails...

    This is my second time with the 930. The first time battery life was TERRIBLE. This was before Denim. I just got my 930 yesterday! I couldn't be happier. It went from 8PM yesterday until today 12PM from 48% until 10%. Then I unplugged it at around 2, and now it's nearing midnight and I'm sitting pretty at 63%. I have to say, I'm pleasantly satisfied with the battery. Of course, I'm going to need to charge it up and down a few times to fully wake up the battery! But if things stay as they are now, I'll get MORE than a day of use! Yay! And I'm still in the honeymoon phase, always playing with it.

    Anyways, what I did was update EVERYTHING right out of the box, and then did a hard reset. The whole, unplug, volume down and power on thing... And then the volume + power combo that you can easily find on the internet, and I reset it completely. Ran through setup again, and that's how I've been using it today. But to be honest, the first 10-15% drops REALLY quickly, and then it sticks to a very constant drop throughout the rest of the day.... I'd give a reset a chance...

    Battery issues solved!!! Apparently when I did the update, Denim turned a host of things I had turned off after I customized my 930 for use. I did pull the Cortana tile off of my start screen. I ran the battery down to zero% and put it on the wall charger until the trickle charge was finished. I started it up....No Heat issues...the Charge went the whole day, ( moderate use, heavy texting, web surfing, streaming radio and music ) without plugging it in. I'm very happy this worked.
    The Battery issues have been fixed with the update. Look for answers here at Windows Central. I appreciate the great information that's here.

    The 930 has been a terrific phone and I still can't get over how great the camera is.

    I did a complete flash on mine to change country variant. Since Denim the battery is holding up a LOT better. I turn off 4G (only 3G), mostly WIFI, no BT, no location services (which implies no Cortana).

    I mainly use the phone for emails and whatsapp/messenger. No games. I did notice a LOT less heating. On one charge I can get 2-3 days. At night with flight mode on the decharge is only 1-2% which is "BlackBerry" level :).

    I'm very happy.

    I have to say that my battery life is bad. I am not even getting a day out of my unit. I am sure there must be a rogue app somewhere :(

    I've never really thought about my 930 battery life. I just use it and charge it whenever and never found myself annoyed about battery life. When it was short, I knew I was using data a lot and expected it. I've had my 930 since July 2014.

    Battery life (at least in my case) has gotten quite better. Before Denim my phone would last a day, maybe a day and a half (depending on how much I would use it). Now, it can last two full days (even though I keep doing the same stuff with it).

    How can it be that just out of a sudden in the last days, my battery charge time from about 4% to 100% happens in 1h40m, but it always took it 2h30m for the same charge, same original nokia charger, and i've had denim for some time now, also nothing else has changed....

    Just curious :)

    usually my battery lasts me one day. But I use the phone pretty heavy, and in the evenings I play a lot of games until it drains.
    Normally, when i charge it overnight, use it the entire day and get back home in the evening, I still have 30-40%. Then I drain it playing games :)
    I keep wifi and cellular data "on" non-stop.

    ​This is from last night. I charged the phone the day before, and during the night I kept it on airplane mode. Also, during the day some periods were on Battery Saver mode.
    It lasted 2 days and one night like this (aprox. 36 hours):
