    Hi all,

    Three weeks ago, after the last update we had for 8.1, my battery life was extended from one day and 10 hours to 2 days and 10 hours. I really had more than two days on my Lumia 625 with all services running and average usage. After one week with only three charges (really, 3 TIMES CHARGED) my battery performance dropped to less than a day. Since a week I have to charge morning and night. I don't know what went wrong, but I cannot reply on my phone anymore..
    some details: after a restart of the phone, the battery immediately drops 3 percent. If I restart it 10 consequential times it drops with 30%.
    Sometimes the battery shows 100% for 5 hours after it drops drastically for less than a minute..
    I turn off all services, including WiFi, location, background tasks and backup, but the phone is still at 5% discharge rate all time.

    Do u have some advice what to do?

    Not really a huge amount of advice to give really, except wait for the official release with the correct and optimised firmware for your device. In terms of what you can do as of right now, it seems you've already done it. I'm in the same boat with my 820. It had poor battery life to start with, but it's very inconsistent after 8.1. Some times I'll get more than a day with some to spare, other times less than a day, and sometimes even less than a few hours.

    I don't have Facebook installed on my device. I don't want to get all the Facebook spam on my device. Laptop is enough :)

    Facebook spam can be controlled. You simply have to choose what feeds to 'follow' on Facebook. Half of technology is merely controlling what information reaches you and what doesn't, and Facebook provides the tools to effectually limit/manage incoming spam.

    At 11:30 last night, I checked my phone and saw it had only 12% battery. I put it next to my bed and plugged in the charger. Unbeknown to me at the time, my charger wasn't plugged into the wall xD Anyway, I woke up the next morning, and went to unlock the phone. Clicked the unlock button, nothing happened. Then the phone started to vibrate, and the Nokia logo came up. I left the phone to turn on. Upon turning the phone on, it has 42% battery. Very confusing. It's gone from 12%, to shutting off, to 42%. I'm guessing these are all firmware related problems which will most likely be fixed upon the official release.
