    Well, 1314 is better than awful 1308 (at least in terms of idle battery drain), but overall not much difference between it and 1249 - the phone can still idle at about 2% per hour of battery drain (which is perfectly acceptable), BUT as soon as I start actually using it for browsing and with various apps - the battery immediately starts to drain with up to 26% per hour of battery usage... Rebooting it doesn't help much (only helps for idle power consumption), disabling "background tasks" also doesn't do anything useful... This is a second replacement already, not sure if I'll bother witn the third one :-/
    If you're using the phone non-stop for an hour, 26% is completely normal, and relative to the battery stats of L920's major competition, that is actually good. There is no fully functional, large-screened smartphone on the market today that will give you better. Its definitely an area for improvement, but changing phones won't fix your problem. Further, the S3 drains roughly 3x faster on standby than L920, don't know about iPhone.

    Yeah, I noticed the battery was lasting much longer. Although, I did notice the battery draining faster than it was charging when I've got the GPS running. Oddest thing. I'm going to look into that.
