    My battery has been awesome since Amber, but it was good before Amber anyway

    Yep, I just noticed today too. Before the update I remember myself trying to tweak all the settings to get the most out of my battery, but now it seems I'm not doing that anymore because of how my battery seems so much more improved...

    I seem to have noticed improved battery life as well as less heating up when I browse the web.
    Same here. Definitely an improvement. I guess it was the OS/firmware bug after all

    Right away, I'm thinking you might have a poorly written app on your phone or you spend a large amount of time watching video or using GPS. These drops are very drastic to me. What phone do you use?

    Yes battery life is waaay better than before. Only lost 8% after 6 hours of the phone in my pocket with glance in peek mode on. Amazing!

    I think Amber improved battery life for my 920 too. Right now I have 24 hrs of stand by with 39% left. I have wireless on, data connection off, glance on. Yesterday I drove for 4 hours and had 3G and Bluetooth on during the whole time. I also checked my email, browsed the web for 1 hour, checked the WPCentral app and some other apps a few times.

    However a couple of days ago I was getting massive battery drain and I began to investigate the possible causes. I uninstalled Skype, Glance Background Beta and some other apps to no avail. The battery drain would continue. Then I remembered someone posted here that sometimes your email account can get stuck and cause massive battery drain. I deleted my Gmail account, added it back again, set it to check every 2 hours and my battery life has seen a major improvement ever since.

    My advice to you if you have sudden battery drain: delete and add back your email amount. It only takes a couple of minutes and can lead to a major improvement in battery life.

    Nokia/Microsoft have OBVIOUSLY turned on some Snapdragon juice sipping mojo on these phones now. They won't say it but THIS is the phone I thought I was buying a year ago. Seriously this is like getting a new phone.

    Its a shame this "fix" wasn't released early on to save a years worth of needless battery abuse. Oh well, 1 more year and it'll be new phone time anyway!

    Mine is worse since the update. Something is keeping the processor on because the back of the phone is quite warm. I probably need to back up all the data on my phone and reset it.

    920. Note perfect no drop on left so phone can run with almost no drain.

    Then I browsed the internet once and checked twitter using their app. No video use, in fact no use except for right at start of first big fall.

    Charged phone overnight but fall continues.

    Fact is that I just use the phone. The OS should not permit mainstream apps to kill the battery like this. OS should warn of a task is running 100% CPU for hours so I can beat up on the dev.

    I take it all back. My live tiles were broken. I got them working again and battery life is horrible. Bottom line, live tile updates destroy your battery.

    After Amber+GDR2 my 920 runs cooler... but I was chatting with my friend using Skype and phone got really HOT and lost 6% battery in mere 5 mins. Does anybody experience this? Want to know if this is the HW or Skype is the culprit!

    GDR3 fixes battery life even more! With GDR2, over the past week, I saw a battery discharging notifcation once...I know, it's only been a day since getting GDR3, but so far battery usage over the past 2 days is consistently around 3% per hour during the day and no spikes! Way better than before!

    I see a big improvement in battery life (with no double tap to wake or glance). usually i've to charge my battery in the afternoon but now it's 9:45pm and still has 22% left (this is with wifi on which usually drains battery even more).
