    Are you doing this via wifi or cell data? If via cell data, the 620 does tend to use a lot of power on 3G. There's not really anything you can do about it. Also, WhatsApp and Skype have been widely reported as having battery drain issues. This was particularly true of the original version of WhatsApp. Once again, if you want to use these apps, not much you can do about it.

    2) Does lumia have any app for hiding vidoes ( free app ) .
    Don't know.

    3) i want battery indicator (%) on lumia just like iphone n android phones ,Any app related to battery indicator in (%) .Im using battery saver but i have go to app to know the % of battery . Any app in windows which indicate on the top right corner near battery same as iPhone.
    There are several battery monitor apps that give the battery percentage on a live tile. Apps don't have the ability to write to the status bar, so you won't get anything with this functionality.

    4) when i charge the phone it get charges in 2 hours completely 100 % . anyone facing this issue.
    Probably most people who own this phone. Using the Nokia charger that comes with the phone it should only take a couple of hours to charge the phone.
