    Kik is battery eater on WP. Plain fact! Kik team doesn't give any love to WP as the App was last updated 2/27/2012.. WhatsApp has been getting better and better though..

    Its time for you to to get a replacement of your device. There must be some problems with the battery. Head into the nearest service centre and tell them the problems you phased. If it is under warranty you are lucky they will replace it.

    Kik for windows phone is just a port or a version and android that was updated in the beginning of 2012. Its going to have better performance on a android phone because it is constantly being updated for that OS and has improved batter performance as well.

    I know for me its lte that kills my 920. If I turn it off when I'm only wanting calls or text then back on for email, or videos my 920 last for almost 2 days. However if I leave it on whether in use or not its dead within 8 hrs.

    Hi, Sorry to say this but this advice is wrong. The KIK app IS a battery eater and does cause your battery to overheat and drain very quickly. I am on my 3rd mobile phone replacement now because of KIK as i returned the other two back to vodafone as the battery got so hot and drained so quick. Some apps (not many) do do this to some Lumia phones and i truly dont know why.

    My previous two phones had KIK on and it was awful with the battery, the third i installed kik when i found after a week of owning my 1020 and leaving in an as out the box state with no apps installed apart from the ones it came with. My battery lasted for 2-3 days with calls and texts to my wife and daughter all day every day. I installed KIK and nothing else. My battery drained in 9 hours without much use and with not using KIK, i charged it, used KIK the following day and it drained my phone flat in less then 2hrs use.

    Its not the hardware, its the software.... KIK.

    The litium battery's lifetime is something 500 to 1000 full charging. It could be the battery is spending last days. Warranty is only 6 moths for the battery.

    Which is weird. For me my battery life, for the most part, IMPROVED when they turned on LTE here compared to HSPA.

    Edit: Just to echo what everyone else says, Kik will RAPE your battery on WP. If it's just running in the background it isn't TERRIBLE (better in 8.1 than it was with 8.0) but when it is active I hope you have a charger handy.

    You would think if Kik is so popular, they would rectify the issue. What good is it if I am communicating on Kik and I have my whole day ahead of me and my battery is dead before I even get to work or wherever I am going? It was so bad on my phone that even with the charger plugged in, the battery would drain. Deleted the app and all is well.
