    I had the L920, changed to Ativ-S which gives me about 30% more battery time. The main difference is the screen, lcd vs amoled. Also Ativ has bigger battery 2300mAh vs 2000mAh. Very happy with the runtime of the Ativ.

    Well, I have 920 and it sucks 20 percent per hour for chatting on FB on IE in 2G mode. Normally I get only 1 day of use. I have only facebook beta in the background tasks. I have two e-mail accounts, one is gmail set to sync manually and other outlook.com set to sync daily. I keep my phone on 2G always and use 3G only whenever needed cause I don't have good network in my area for 3G. I chat a couple of hours on FB in IE, 15 mins of Whatsapp, 15 mins other browsing, couple of hours music. Brightness set to high automatic. And I get only 1 day. 4 days is at least in my opinion impossible..
    umm Lumia 920 have a pure motion hd plus display , which suck battery ;) so 1 days Is not bad , I do get 6-7 hours on regular heavy usage (playing games , music , wifi always on , Bluetooth always on (used in car) , nfc , network set to 3g ) I am impressed with battery since my iPhone 4s didn't lasted 5 hours if I use it in this way ;)

    4 days is way too much ! I use a lumia 720 and the max I get out of it is max with data and wifi off is 3 days, if I use data its 1-2 days. Data makes a huge difference in the discharge rate. Btw 820 has a lesser battery than 720 right?

    Usually i get 3 days too but remember 820 has an AMOLED screen vs TFT on 720... So it save a lot of battery even while using glance

    Could be. I have not used a AMOLED yet so, maybe it could.

    Yes.. I'm also impressed with the battery life. When I was travelling two days ago I got battery backup of 2 days. And I used it for Here maps, music and lots of photo clicking and video shooting. Was at an event at an Engineering college in Pune. My friend with iPhone 4S who didn't do anything I did ran out before me. And funny thing is Apple maps didn't even show the location I was searching. And my Lumia showed the way to college from back side of the college, which wasn't official entrance. Impressed with here maps.. A lot..

    That says nothing mate, i can put a phone in the drawer, disable everything and it will probably go 6, 7 days. We need to see how you've been using it for those 4 days.
    No one here believed my windows laptop took ten minutes to start, but it did. After that experience, I believe the OP.

    My Lumia 1520 has plenty of battery life for my purposes. All I really need is for my phone to last 16-18 hours because I charge it at night. I'm probably a moderate user and typically have over 50% charge left on my phone when I plug it in at night. The lowest my battery has ever gone is 38%. The 1520 is the first phone I have owned where I don't even think about the battery.

    apple removed google maps from ios 6 , which was a shame if I use maps , luckily google published maps for iPhone & iPad but they drain battery like hell.umm ios 7 is a battery hog , when compared to windows phone which can handle battery very well. Here maps are great , i used google maps in around 2012 :D never used it again. Hope wp8.1 improves battery life further on current gen devices.

    Of course you have a battery life of 3-4 days, if you don't use your phone...bit still, I compared my Lumia 620 with iPhone and galaxy, its not much worse or better. Depends what you do...using whatsapp, WP will lose, browsing the web, WP lose. Maybe maps and call time WP seems better.

    I use my phone 24/7. With that said, whenever I have a free moment I would charge my phone. Taking that into consideration, my Icon blows away my S4 battery life. I would be on both, and charge whenever I could (at my desk at work, nightstand to sleep, etc.). I don't have to charge the Icon in the car for GPS or streaming. For the S4, I would have to. Got the Icon three days after launch, its bee. At 25% once. My S4 wouldn't last 4-6 hours before hitting that mark or lower.

    Useless information. You charge your phones whenever you can. So we can't compare battery life! Well done

    We can't compare battery life. Different usage, different apps, different light situation, different signal, different temperature. ...
