    Day one of my trial and the battery drained very quickly and that might be due to my WiFi turned on with no WiFi connected. On day two I had turned off WiFi and also data connection and it was from 95% to 85% from 9.30 to 19.45. After that when I turned the data connection on the battery drain was quick. I will again test tomorrow and share the results. Btw I am loving the swipe keyboard.

    You can turn wifi on, but turn off wifi sense. This is the culprit.

    What he said, WiFi sense is a killer.

    Changing the options in your email settings to not deliver items they arrive but to either check manually or every hour or so should also help.

    My Lumia 1020 battery life has been consistent until now. I had initial drains and I did the following :
    1) Let the phone battery drain completely and then recharge
    2) After 100% recharge, I soft reset the phone.

    Until now, below is the battery performance. The battery life is consistently at 15 hours per day

    That's a crap load of battery time, what phone are you using?
    I'm going to take your tip and use the adapter to charge my phone after a complete discharge...We'll see if it works

    I am using Lumia 1020 as my main phone.

    The other phones are Lumia 920 and 625. Will post screenshots of both phones soon.

    My Lumia 920 started off with bad battery life but it was only because I was using it a lot to set up features and what not after 8.1. Right now it's at 87% with 17 hours remaining and last charge an hour ago. Granted it's just sitting at my desk but still.

    That being said, my L925....Horrible. I set it up and stopped using it, but decided to take use it again during a date I went on and it drained QUICK. Just being idle. After Nokia releases the Blue update I think things should be normal.

    Without wifi sense it won't connect to my home network automatically right?

    Immediately after the Upgrade from 8.0, I Hard Reset the phone WITHOUT restoring my old backup, and started as new.
    Then, after two full discharge and recharge, my Battery lasts even LONGER than 8.0 (on Nokia Lumia 920 here).

    That's what I also tweaked:

    1) Turned OFF: Bluetooth, NFC, Wi-Fi Sense, Data Sense, Touch High Sensitivity, Find my Phone (save position), Announce ID, Microsoft Feedback Reporting (on IE, Keyboard, Wi-Fi and Bing) AND Battery Saver (both the main switch AND Background Setting);
    2) Background Tasks: Disabled most of them, and kept only the essential ones (Whatsapp, Facebook, Store, Skype etc);
    3) Mail Sync: every 1 Hour;
    4) Settings Sync: all Disabled;
    5) Lockscreen image: Static, from Photo;
    6) IE: set Webpage compression to Standard, Find location Disabled;
    7) Bing: find location Disabled;
    8) Integration Hub: only 1 Microsoft Account (Outlook mail check included inside this) + Twitter Account + LinkedIn Account.

    My phone last all day under heavy usage, and drops 1% every 2-3 Hours.
    Very satisfied, and I already know that after Cyan it will be even better

    My battery would probably last longer with all those settings because a lot of them are turned off whereas they're turned on for 8.0 and having no problems, we shouldn't have to restrict everything that we used fine on 8.0

    Couldn't deal with 8.1 on 1020, I was out at the pub on Friday and just sitting in my pocket it dropped from 85% to 55% over the course of 3 hours, and I wasn't doing anything with it.

    I've gone back to 8.0 for now and going to wait for Cyan I think.

    Although 8.1 was definitely fun to play with, and I'm excited for it, for someone like me who only uses a 1020 8.1 isn't ready.

    Those are the same settings I was using with 8.0

    I see… well maybe 8.1 just isn't ready for my connectivity requirements. Or I may just have to dial it back a bit on 8.1 on a 1020… I'm hoping that the cyan optimisations just do the job properly, fingers crossed.

    Few days after get 8.1 my 920's battery was great, even better than before and no LAG but now it's awful and very LAG! I use WIFI then check facebook in about 30m then play game (Cloud Raiders & Royal Revolt 2) in about 2h, battery goes from 100% to ~35%. the phone also very hot while I just use WIFI and check Facebook. No battery app, weather app & social app bg task all disabled. And the charge time seems faster! Guys, is that my battery problem? Should I reset my phone? I owned it for 5 months :(

    I went back to 8.0 on my Lumia Icon (using Nokia Software Recovery tool) in order to get the Verizon firmware fix for WiFi issues, and I gotta say the battery life isn't any better in 8.0, at least not so far (installed 8.0 yesterday). I wonder how much of the battery issue is perception and increased use/checking out new functions.

    I have tested a few different things on my 1520 and in IE I was getting a drop of 13% per hour on 8.0 and in 8.1 it is down to 8% per hour on 8.1, in standby I was getting 0.7 but now it is 0.2

    I also tried a few test on my 925 and 1020 and the 925 is around 25% better and the 1020 is around 20% better. I haven't used my 520 that much but the standby time is a lot better and my other 925 I reset it to 8.0 to test going to 8.1 without doing a hard reset but I need a few more days to test that but at the minute it is having all sorts of problems. My next test with it is going to be a hard reset and restore it then from a backup made when it was in 8.0

    Hi Himanshu,

    Can we merge both threads?

    As Himanshu mentioned, please use this thread:

    @ajayden
    Although the idea sounds good, I'm not merging these two threads, because that would shuffle posts from both threads into each other (based on the time they were posted). This tends to make for very confusing reading. Merging only works well with threads that contain very few posts (ideally just one), but this one went on for too long for that to be viable.

    Thread closed.
