    I have noticed after one day of usage that the battery life on my T-Mobile Lumia 925 is wayyyy better. I've been using LTE with 4 tiles also. I usually get a noticeable drop in battery life with heavy usage, but even after playing Halo on my device, its humming like a champ. Can't speak for every device, but damn, its so much better.

    Very cool. We'll probably run a poll in a few days after people have had a few more days with the new OS. So far my 925 is a lot better.

    I feel like mine took a huge drop in battery life. In fact I came here to see if I was the only one. Using a 1020, I feel like I can literally watch the percent numbers drop... Anyone else?

    The drop is more than likely because we are all checking our phones out so much more now that we have a new OS to play with. My battery is being used up more but that's because I haven't put it down! Always playing with Cortana and customizing getting things nice and cozy hahaha :)

    the battery life on my 925 was terrible on LTE, left alot to be desired, I can imagine that the update for u doesn't fix the same problem...

    Ok Sam, I totally trust you on this one, so I am going to ask you...

    What limitations are there on the Nokia Apps with 8.1? I did my 8x and haven't found anything besides the Me Tile that I dislike. I think I am willing to trade the 3rd row of tiles for the update status piece though....

    Anything else that I need to worry about - Nokia Music, Camera Beta, Creative Studio, Play To, Video Upload, etc...

    Agree too, but maybe placebo. We need more days.

    Seems faster? ;) For me it seems like my battery lvl drops faster. Normally by lunch, im at 76-80%. Today, post 8.1, im at 60%. I dont know if its 8.1 or Cortana. I removed a lot of background task's, but the drain still happens.

    Did you ever try to hard-reset it?

    Got mine about 3 weeks ago, fully updated the phone out the case. next day, only about 7 hours of battery time. After a couple of days roaming thrue the forums. I decided to reset it. voila it runs like a kitten now.

    What phone are you using and did you do a hard or soft reset?

    My battery life is noticeably worse after the update. So far at least. My network or wifi is much much more active, always sending and receiving information. I don't know if maybe because its a new operating system its just pulling lots of new info or what. I know when I first got my phone it was like this for a bit and then got better. Imagine its a similar story for this too. I hope at least

    Mine is chewing through battery about twice as fast as it used to. I normally ran 3-4% per hour, but now I'm closer to 6-7% per hour. I've been off charger for 3.5 hours this morning and I am at 82% left (5.2%) which should get me about 24-26 hours with Battery Saver kicking in at 20%. That's more than acceptable to me for my daily driver.

    I figure the increase is due to that additional live tiles on my start screen - I have about 30 where I used to have about 10-15...

    I also wonder if Wi-Fi Sense is less efficient than just leaving Wi-Fi on under the lock screen. Kicking it off and on might just use a bit more battery than just leaving it running under the hood. The other thing is that it auto-turns on 'hidden network' searches, which also can use more battery.
