    I recently posted on 1520 forums that the facebook messenger app takes an astonishing -10% per hour using a battery sense app.

    recently I discovered after complete reinstall, if you go to people hub and select from some account to all ( facebook was turned off) this increased the battery to -15% per hour from what was before .9%

    I have got 30 apps running in background and still showing .9% showing that issues mainly is the facebook app

    in essence 5 days working time to 10 hours tops!

    anyone know there is a facebook problems post or anything?

    this rate 8.0 is better for a 1520 or any other win phone with native os support.

    anyone suggest anything?

    I think you are not alone.I have the 920 and after 8.1 every app drains my battery very quickly. Apps like viber/messenger/Facebook/Skype/here maps etc. With 8.0 battery consumption with these apps was unacceptable and now with 8.1 is just a huge fail. Personally I don't believe cyan update will fix this.

    I downgraded to 8.0, Facebook chat is in app not normal chat, the phone is cooler, battery life returned to normal. Must be fb app is 8 not 8.1!
