    Either try a soft reset or a hard reset. That's the only way to solve problems in WP8.1.

    Works 99% of the time.

    From that remark I'm guessing that you didn't do a hard reset after 8.1

    That is your problem, most if not all people that have problems with 8.1 have either not done a hard reset after 8.1 or did a hard reset and then restored from a backup they had of the phone made before 8.1

    By the way do you have WiFi sense turned on? If yes then turn it off.

    I was going to ask the same question if I'm off work and at home I will be connected to my WiFi, and its drains so quickly almost from 100% to dead within hours but don't get me wrong this is with constant use of fb, twitter, whatsap, browsing sport, tech and news articles with txts and the odd scroll of instagram lol would that be why it drains quicker then normal?

    Locations drains the power too. Nothing crazy but I keep it off to be conservative. to bad Cortana requires it. I haven't used cortana once because of that.

    I wouldn't restore anything if I were you.

    I suppose it wouldn't do any harm to do a hard reset and restore from your backup you made when in 8.1 just to see if it helps but you would need to give it a few days for the battery to settle down. Then if that doesn't help do another hard reset and don't restore.

    Just make a backup of your test/sms messages.
