    I've had the 8.1 update since launch, and it seems today that my battery life is finally getting better (I have about 71% after 6 hours) on my 1020. Has anyone else noticed the battery life issue getting better?

    Yup. Mine is getting better day by day. Actually my battery is working perfect like before when its not connected to Wi-Fi. The battery drains fast only when its connected to Wi-Fi.

    Is your Wi-Fi- always on (like even when the screen's off), or do you have it set to turn off?

    I have also noticed improvements. First week or so I was considering doing a full reset, now its great again. It's like its learning how I use it and how to optimize. WP treats batteries like teeny newborns.

    On my 925 I am at 29% at 1130pm. Been off the charger since about 830am. Pretty good I guess but my phone is locked up during the day so it gets very limited use

    Getting better. I have 31% after being off of the charger for 13 hours (since 8:30AM). It reports I now have an estimated 5 hours left. That's short of the 20+ I WAS getting but better than the 14 from last week. I've only turned off WiFi Sense, but still keep WIFI on. (Lumia 925 T-Mobile).

    Wifi Always on option is now permanent and cannot be toggled.

    WiFi always on isn't permanent. You can turn WiFi off easily.

    I guess psreloaded was talking about wifi turning off when the screen is off.

    My battery has improved too, and I am not on my phone any less. I have WiFi on most of the day and I have Cortana off. I usually plug in at night after 15 hrs with 30-40% left.

    and I have experienced this two, all last week my battery was just horrible. I couldn't do anything without killing the battery even with battery saver on, but now it seems to even out and I can play games and have it last till I go to sleep.
