    Hi guys, i bought my lumia 930 about 2 months ago. This is a excellent smartphone, and I loved it so much. But I have a bit problem with the battery. Can you guys tell me my battery is normal or bad with these activities: (notice: I disable all apps, network connection and location, and I used battery saver)
    2p.m: full charged, I set offline and went to sleep.
    6:45 a.m: It fall down 98%. I made 4 phone calls, but no one answer, then I turn on wifi, check facebook for about 4-5 mins, downloaded "files" on store, connected the contacts with facebook.
    7:5 a.m: The battery life is 92% . Then I turn off all connection, kill apps, and played lossless with molid player.
    7: 27 a.m: It droped to 86 %.
    And whenever I use my camera, the battery drop 1% for 4mins with camera.
    Are there any problems with my battery? Or it is normal? Are there any solutions for saving battery?
    At last, thank you for reading, and hope all of you have a nice day :D/

    Nothing here seems unusual. The L930 has an average battery (not great) and whilst the standby and in call drain are very good any intensive use will show fast drain. 1% drain in 4 minutes of camera usage is actually pretty good! Means you could snap away for 2 hours and only use 30%. Better than I've managed. Constantly, 'waking' the phone to check battery drain won't help either ;) I never struggle to get through the day with mine (medium/heavy use but no gaming) and rarely go below 50%.

    Sounds normal to me - do keep in mind the 930 has a 1080p screen AND a quad-core processor! I've also noticed that if you play lossless files, XBM uses more battery (using WMA Lossless, and I'm assuming because it has to process more data). If you want to try "improving" battery life (this sounds a bit backward), but try ENABLING all background services in Battery Saver. I've noticed a slight performance improvement and also slightly improved battery life on my 1020. Or maybe it's a placebo xD

    Thank you guys for helping. I think it's ok. But today I had a big, very big problem.
    Like other days, I charged fully and go to sleep. TOday, when I woke up at 6h30 a.m, I take the phone to my bed, connect wifi and open zalo (an app like skype). Unfortunately, I lay on it, and slept. When I got up at 7h20 a.m, WTF, this phone was locking screen (ofcourse), but it was overheating. Unlocked the screen, I saw only wifi, location and zalo were opening but my battery had only 20% (fall down from 98% to 20% in only 50 mins). OMG! I closed all apps, but it seem continously hot and the battery fall down 2% in only 5mins. I had to turn off the phone.
    What;s the happen? Can u guys tell me :(

    If Location was polling GPS all the time that would do it. GPS is a massive power sucker in any phone.

    I'm in NO WAY an expert on WP, or its devices, but I can say that if you completely reset your phone to factory and don't do much installation and get the SAME usage (like draining 50% in an hour! haha) then it's defective. Everyone can complain all they want about poor battery life, but if you lose from 98 to 20% in under an hour, that's defective. In most likelihood, it's probably a software issue, so resetting the device to factory could help. Maybe even redownload the software from the nokia tool? I think I heard of that around here!

    Best of luck!

    You either have some app that went nuts or your email is stuck on a syncing loop.

    Check you battery saver app and see which apps that run in the background have abnormal battery usage.
