    Not experienced any changes. Battery about as before.

    My wife has noticed a big decrease in battery life since the update on her 925. She lives on Facebook though so it's definitely eating battery lol. However, she can charge the phone and without touching it the phone will drain battery much faster than before. I advised her to factory reset but she refuses lol. So I'm thinking about doing it tonight after she falls asleep and I'll let you know if it helps.

    It hasn't changed for me at all, since the update on my 925.
    Factory reset might be too drastic for this.

    OP and Ploydd, Check in battery saver if something is draining battery in background, and disable it from running.

    Alternatively, if you're on a Lumia, turn OFF double-tap to wake if you have it on. It ruins battery life. Glance is solid though, on Peek it shouldn't cause drain.

    A soft reset might fix it too.

    Already disabled all battery hogging apps and disable apps that run in the background eating up data, but still getting the issue. Also tried a soft reset with same result, which is why my last resort is a hard reset after a backup. It usually only takes like 45 min to an hour to complete.

    I have this update on 2 different phones with this problem (928 and 920). When using the phone my battery is decreasing 6% every 20 min. For me this decrease in power is way too fast. Double tap is off. Glance is on peek. Switched screen brightness from automatic to low. I even did a couple soft resets. Nothing seemed to help. When not using the phone there is no crazy battery drain. Here is the kicker, I also have a 822 and I am having no issue with increased battery drain with this update. Really weird

    It's just been weird. Here is the thing if I leave it on normal mode not airplane I can last over 12 hours with few calls but in airplane it drains it like crazy I don't know what to say.

    1 day since last charge, it is at 70% now. I used the radio almost all afternoon, so it dropped from 80% to 70%. But no games, nor much use too. Just did 4 calls, 2 were from Bluetooth, that is always on. Wifi and location I just turn on when I need. Wifi usually at night for updates, email, etc.

    The first night, my 1520 died on the charger. I soft reset and it was fixed. Very odd.

    My 1520 on 14203 has 60% after work at 5pm after a fair bit of internet, gaming, whatsapp, facebook and using the camera for a bit, so I'd say it's doing fine.

    Seems like its more pointed to the older phones. My 920 is horrible after the latest update. I'm working on changing some settings and if that doesn't fix the issue I will be doing a reset.

    Opposite for me. I feel like my 1520's battery life got a bit better. But then again I never worry about battery life with this phone.
