    Helloo.
    So I am having lumia 720 and I am still facing some unresolved battery problems.
    All other things work fine but i am not at all satisfied with the battery even after the latest update to wp 8.1.
    I only use mobile data(3G) and use whatsapp a little and a little surfing on internet explorer. even then my 2000mah battery cant hold power for a full day.
    i keep brightness on automatic. Even at night battery dips down by 10% even when battery saver is activated.
    I have deactivated background running of each and every app.(even whatsapp now)
    Back with 8.0, Battery worked excellent giving 1.5 Days backup with moderate usage. But now on light usage,
    Is this only with me?? Is it a bug or my battery is seriously Faulty? Or maybe is it because the whatsapp or internet explorer.
    Help me out please.

    Do a phone hard reset, and a full battery drain (phone switch off by itself). Maybe your battery/charge controller is uncalibrated, and the battery doesn't get a full charge. I had the same problem, and it's fixed now. Oh, and do NOT install battery pro+ application ever....

    Same here with a 928. If I don't use the phone, the battery is almost magically untouched. I tested that last weekend- took the phone off the charger Saturday, 8am. Went to bed at midnight, and the battery level was at about 58%. Woke up on Sunday and it was down to 56%. Pretty incredible!

    Using the phone, though? And I'm NO power user... this morning my phone was off the charger at 7:30am. I made 2 <5min calls, set a location based reminder, and right now at 10:30am my battery is down to 84%. If today goes like most days, I'll be down to 40% before I leave at 4:30pm and I'll have to put it on the charger by 9pm or it'll die.

    Before 8.1, I was able to get 30 hours with a decent amount of usage. Now, every time I touch the phone, I lose %. It's difficult to make it through the day if I have to use the phone for anything.

    Ridiculous. :(

    Really? A total wipe and reinstall of everything? Ugh!

    Can you tell me how you do that, AFTER telling the phone to wipe itself? Do you have to go in and redo all of your accounts, settings, install programs, etc?

    ​I guess it IS a long weekend coming up... :\

    Just do a backup to cloud, it's save your phone settings, downloaded applications (phone will download then reinstall them automatically), saved accounts (needs input just passwords again), and now in 8.1 start screen tiles. U can backup all your sms too.

    Thank you for the tip.

    Having trouble with that, too, however! When I look at the backup panel, it says that the phone was last backed up "about three weeks ago." I tell it to do one now, and it gets to 96%, sits there for a full minute, and then fails with the message "There was a problem backing up your settings. Try again later."

    I've tried about 15 times this morning. I guess I'll go off in search of what causes THIS problem now... :(

    Delete your previous data, and try it again. Are you using wifi or cellular connection?

    Deleting my old backup makes me really nervous. Is there a way to backup that backup? I am looking around on OneDrive, but not seeing anything there.

    ​Definitely on wifi. Even turned of cell data for a few of my earlier attempts.

    Do you have enough free space on Ondrive? Try to delete your windows live account on the phone then add it again.

    I just did a hard reset on my 928 after the second update to 8.1 will see if that improves my battery at all.

    I was getting roughly 6-7 hours moderate use. Maybe 3-4 hours with music playing

    It's very important to turn off wifi sense! It uses a lot of juice in the background. Forgot to tell at the beginning. :)

    I have tons of space available on OneDrive. I will try deleting and reading the account as you suggest and report back...

    If still doesn't work, try switch on/off backup option, or try a soft reset (hold volume down while switch on the phone).

    I'm having the same battery problems on my mine my wife's 925. Very erratic results. Sometimes overnight, the phone uses 1% per hour, others 5%!

    Sometimes I chat 20 minutes on viber or WhatsApp and loose battery at 1% per minute. Very bad. This is just a speculation on my behalf, but I really feel that the notification system is using the battery inefficiently. I don't chat for a long time at all... but WhatsApp and Viber are always on the top of my list when it comes to power usage.

    I can't wait for this to be resolved.
