    928 here. Been off charger for 4 hours and I'm down to 69%. It seems worse then it used to be. However, I just got this device last week to replace my last 928 that could no longer read my SIM card, so I still need to give it a few more days. Kinda sucks I don't have a baseline.

    battery sucks on my 920. from a day, it's come down to less than 12 hours with the same usage. Cortana enabled (India).
    Amazingly, apps that i'm not using on my phone are showing heavy usage (even though some have been disabled).
    Eg. Twitter (disabled), Mail, Internet Explorer (used only to check it for a minute or two max), Whatsapp (OK, I used it quite a bit but amazingly is not on the top list of battery usage), People, Store, WPCentral, Viber, Skype.

    What crap is this???
    Unhappy with the update

    Im thinking it's not draining the battery, but reporting it wrongly, you can't charge a battery from 38% to 100% in 3 seconds
    I'm beginning to suspect the same, I 'lost' 23% by rebooting my phone. Today it started off the same as before 8.1, about 4 hours to drop to 95%, then about 5-7% an hour for the rest if the day. Turned battery saver off and letting it run down completely to see just how low it will actually get before shutting down.

    Hey! So we all know how terrible the battery life is for our Lumia 920's! But after installing 8.1... Do you feel any difference in battery life? Does it seem worse, better or the same as before?
    My standby time is better than GDR3 but my phone lasts about 8-13 hours it was 14-18 before. So it's quite bad, luckily I have a portable charger. Btw I'm in the UK so no Cortana. Whatsapp takes the most battery.

    I tried Cortana for an hour and she is really fun to be with. Unfortunately, I must turn on "Location Service" for Cortana to work. So I uninstalled her by changing region again. Location Service + Cortana = Huge Battery Drain.

    My 920 same issues, Cortana uses all of my battery. I turned off "Allow app to run in the background" in Battery Saver for Cortana, now is better!

    Ok Ive worked out that WeChat on WP8.1 is absolutely sucking the life out of the battery, from 50%~ to 15% in just 20 mins~, and most of that was with the screen off, just running behind lock

    Updated to 8.1 and now it seems like my battery drains twice as fast. Can't get through a normal day without a charger now.

    My battery was terrible yesterday, but one of my email accounts wasn't syncing properly (particularly, I wouldn't stop syncing) and it destroyed my battery. Today is much better after I fixed it, but I'm still unsure if its overall better or worse.

    Same here on my 1520, not as bad as yesterday but not as good on 8.0, I think Cortana always looking for location is one of the problems

    I searched for battery life because i wanted to see if anyone else noticed how much better it is now that 8.1 has come out. I used to be able to use my phone like for like 2 hrs (not including music listening) during the day and by the time i got home from school (7 hours) it would be almost drained. Now i have been using it straight for like 3 hrs and it's still at 74%! I haven't had a problem since! Holy **** Microsoft IDK wtf you did but thank the heavens on high!

    A tip to charge your phone much faster is not to use the official charger it comes with. I use the charger from my Dell tablet and it charges my Samsung Ativ S almost twice as fast. When comparing the two adapters, I noticed the tablet power adapter had higher amps.

    Usually I do a phone reset after I install an update. This time around I waited a bit to see if I could pick up any differences.

    Before resetting the phone:
    On full charge battery would say 1 day 3hrs remaining
    Basemark scores were the same as before

    After phone reset
    Full charge gives me 1day 15hr (what it used to show on GDR3)
    Basemark scores previous high was 499 now its 521
    Significant increase in Memory, Graphics and Web scores

    I think the battery life on my 822 is slightly (detectable but not a huge difference) worse now. But it got a bit worse after GDR3 then went back to normal. I'm waiting to see if that's the case this time.
