    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?

    Hard to tell. Battery life on my 820 was appalling to start with and I've been messing with 8.1 since it updated I'll probably get a better indication tomorrow as I'm going to be away from a charger for a day.

    I can't seem to keep the screen shut off on my phone today for some reason...

    Time will tell.

    However... Battery Saver shows IE has highest battery usage. One nice thing is you can go turn off it's ability to run in the background... which I just did. Will be interesting to see if that helps as I've always suspected IE as being a battery eater.

    I had some issues while update my phone shows 100% and then 0% then 100% again.
    Phone is going crazy with all updates, give a few days for it to settle.

    Mine still does not want to charge on the wireless charging plate. After the update it wasnt showing that it was charging. Restarted and then it did but, I'm syncing my music and it has drained my battery and now I'm getting critically low message. Only thing running is xbox music. Not sure why it can't keep up.

    yeah my L920 is taking forever to charge on the charge plate. Something is definitely amiss here either with the software controlling the wireless charging or something else is eating up additional battery. I even went into the batter saver mode and forced it into "Always". The phone IS charging but it appears to be at a slower rate especially considering I have the "always" mode enabled right now I would expect it to charge much faster than normal.

    Mine seems horrible on Icon - been sitting on the charger most of the day, and it's just getting back up to 73%.

    How did you manage to turn off IE? I have been able to turn of most apps but IE does not give me an option too in Battery Sense.

    Everything amazing, just two little things: 1. I feel my home screen more compressed, I don't know why, but is something related to space between home screen and bezel. 2. Battery issues, I never had battery problems, I fix and check all but I can't found what app is sucking my battery.

    Same with my Lumia 920... I lose at least 2% every 2 minutes or so... I also just soft reset and lost 10%.

    Same here for me on Lumia 925. Charged it yesterday evening and in the morning phone was shut down due to the low battery. I almost got late for work because of that.
    The battery level is 97% few minutes after I unplugged the phone.

    jury is still out on battery life...my L1020 was fully charged when I left my house this morning however I'd lost 18% by the time I came out of the gym this morning (around 90 mins later). Mind you, it could be down to the fact that I have been flicking around the new features....

    Will do a proper battery test tomorrow (i.e. put on charge overnight and see how long the charge lasts when doing 'normal' use).

    My battery dropped 60% after a update but switched on and off and went back to 86%. I do think the battery is draining more but remember we are all using the DEVELOPERS PREVIEW so we can expect a few problems.

    my Lumia 925 always had problem with battery life, with Wp8.1 now its even worse :P 100% this morning at 8 am, 25% at 14.30 and light usage (i worked 5 hours and can't use a lot my phone while working), no gaming, no gps, only a few facebook whatsapp and cortana!

    It's only been a little over 12 hours but I'm seeing an increase per hour in consumption on my Icon. I usually averaged 2% to 3% per hour with light to moderate usage and now I'm seeing around 3.5%. I disallowed pretty much every app I don't use as a Live tile from running in the background, too. Next few days with normal use should be more telling.

    Before the update






    After the update

    Took mine out this afternoon to grab something to eat at the pub, they have free WiFi there, I was on 97% when I left, 20 minute journey, 30 minutes meal connected to their WiFi, checked battery on the way out the door, 38%

    Checked battery stats, it says Store was using the most, but store wasn't even open while I was out, only the browser and emails

    Almost 60% battery drain in less than an hour ?


    EDIT - Just plugged it back in to charge and suddenly I'm back to 100% battery? WTF

    My battery has been absolutely horrible. It'll last two hours at most.

    Battery drain of 28% per hour. Without Cortana. :(

    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
