    If you could please indicate the duration/amount of time you get out of your battery on average and please classify yourself as either a lite, midcore or hardcore user, meaning you use your phone A LOT with streaming, browsing and gaming.

    And please don't forget to list your phone model.

    I'm trying to see which windows phones have the longest battery life for my next upgrade as battery life is important to me.

    I have an 8x during the week its plugged in virtually all the time as I have it on my desk with screen timeout set to never so I can see notifications and social media posts come in. At the weekend with medium usage - light gaming, texts and calls and some web browsing it will last a full day meaning I unplug it early morning 7am and it will still have at least 20% left on the battery in the evening when I go to bed around midnight.

    Lumia 1020

    Heavy browsing in this websites lots of phone calls 70+ less than 2 minute calls a bunch of text 10 to 20 per day. I call that heavy use but I don't play games much I don't you tube or stream music. I have all my music downloaded to save data.

    I get about 16 hours out of a charge. I am off the charger at 5:30 in the mornings I usually set the phone on the charger at 20% charge around 9 to 10 at night.

    I get about 24-36 hours with moderate use. That large 2300mAh battery makes all the difference.

    Lumia 820 - I can kill my battery in 4-5 hrs with heavy use. Moderate use I can get 9-10 hrs. If I'm really careful with light use, I can get 16-18 hrs.

    920 - it comes off the charger (100%) between 6.30/7am and goes back on at about 11pm with about 20% remaining.

    I am a business user and use the camera (+ some on-phone photo processing), emails, twitter, texts and calls. I browse news website, very little you tube, no videos, music or games. Total usage time throughout the day is probably two hours excluding regular & frequent checks to see in boxes.

    I am in an area with good reception (so there's little hunting for the signal) and I don't use 4G (don't think for my usage that there'd be much benefit).

    Would be interested to hear what you decide on as you'll get lots of replies, but all so different it may not be that much help to you!

    LUMIA 620

    Phone Calls (1h a day), 30 sms, 30 whatsapp, browsing (1h), reading Rss / news feeds (1h), little gaming (not much 3D, 30 mins), sometimes navigation.
    Lasts 20 hours.

    Battery draining are (imo): Whatsapp (yes, still.), IE (dont know if its better after Amber, have to check), Navigation.

    But im waiting for the Lumia 520 Battery from "Mugen Power" (1600mAh) to put in my device, so it will last much longer. yeah :)

    Just want to point out that battery will be dependant on apps a lot of the time - if somebody has a lot of background apps running then battery will drop off as quick as say a moderate user.

    Nokia 1020 and if I'm home and the 4g tower is not trying to break in I finish the day with 70-80% on my battery. Trouble is some days I get a 4g signal that I never get more the 2 bars on but it only comes in from time to time not every day. When that happens I can do nothing really on my phone and it will be died before bedtime. Need to give that trick a try to look out 4g service because it sucks when my battery dies like that.

    moderate usage, some gaming, facebook, web browsing short videos, 30+ texts, a few pictures, a couple phone calls, tons of email from 3 email accounts. I take off charger at 5:45 am and put on charger at 10:30 pm ish with about 40%.

    Heavy usage, lots of games, videos (local), pictures, kids playing with it (game and you tube, Netflix) for an hour or so, I get about 6 hours.

    if I just play video after video (720, or 1028 Blue Ray rips, or Netflix/ hulu), I can kill it in a 3 hours.

    I've tailored it so that it lasts 16-18h with my typical use, as in all day without having to "save it". I have a 920 and consider my usage medium, but I dont play games on my phone which is one major saver. I have BT and NFC turned off, pretty much everything else on, as I have nothing that uses BT or NFC in active use.

    These are very impressive, I'm coming from Android and if I just browse a lot, my battery in my EVO 3D is finished in under an hour.
    (it's a 1750mAh battery)-as a result I have purchased 2 external batteries, a 6000mAh and a 5200mAh...it would be nice to no longer have to walk around with extra batteries. A few times when I had my phone charging, it gives me a notification telling me that more power is being used than the power going into the phone, it's an absolute joke.

    ^^^^how much do you use the 510 for it to last you 4-7 days Jay ?
