    Unfortunately I'm unsure of "normal" battery life (i currently dont own a 520)

    As for network coverage, it's understandable that the device would use more power with a weak network but it shouldn't use that much more than it would on a strong network. The screen is buy far the biggest consumer of power. Why do you think the old phones with very low resolution small screens lasted several days on a single charge even if you gamed on it permanently.

    I do not know anything about flipkart unfortunately.
    You didn't tell how to correct the time estimate, as each time it is showing wrong information? Does this problem come as manufacturing defect cuz in terms and condition for replacement there is a point saying replacement for manufacturing defect. So telling this problem and battery drain quickly issue i have, will they replace the piece? I'm puzzled

    Changing battery time estimates are common in all devices, but it should fluctuate in a more predictable manner as the battery cells become more active and balance out with use.

    Those who are running the black update, how much battery do you now get with extreme use and have you noticed an improvement over the battery life you got with Amber ?

    How long does it last you on one full charge ? (before it gets flat and you have to recharge it again)

    Charge it twice a day under heavy usage... But it can last +/- 2days under moderate use.

    So.... I m using my Lumia as a radio/music player device mostly and the battery life is amazing ! 1 hour of radio just dropps my battery -3%! Plus i got only -1-0.5% battery drain per hour on 2g . When i switch to airplane mode the battery just stays still :P 0% drain
    With light/medium usage my 520 lasts 2/2.5 days.I could use some more on screen time though :S but the battery life is surprisingly good for me!:D

    I usually get 2 days but I got more.
    I have WiFi on all the time (even if 3G is on) and 3G (browsing/fb, a little bit of yt sometimes etc.) + music + games from home to work and from work back home.
    This usually means 3 hours or so.
    Home I'm on WiFi.

    Last time when I got a day (never got less) I was on a mountain field trip in areas with low cellular/3G coverage and I ket the 3G on almost the entire day.

    So far 520 has offered me the best battery life I've seen. And I had quite a few smartphones 'till I got it

    I fully charge it in the morning before I head off to school for about 7 hours and use it lightly so I'd always get home with >95%. After that I would use it moderate til about 9 or 10pm which is around the time it enables battery saver

    I get about 40 to 50 hours on Lumia Black with normal daily usage (slightly better than Amber by a few hours).

    I don't use that many apps though and hardly ever play games.

    Check your background tasks and disable the ones that aren't REALLY needed.
    Then switch brightness to low, disable data connection, disable BT, switch mail check to less frequent (1 hour or 2hours), screen time-out set to lower setting, disable Wifi-scan, turn OFF Xbox live connection.

    If you want to be picky, here are all the important ones, but the above mentioned should make a difference already :

    3.16%/Hour is equivalent to 1 Day, 7 Hrs, 38 Mins and 44 Secs of Standby with 3G on if I suppose? Now If I may suggest you a key, when you work on any app and then close it by pressing the Windows Key that app is running in the background. I can vouch for its standby with 3G on and running apps closed by long pressing <- and exiting all apps by clicking on X. That ways my NL520 drained only 7% in 7 hrs Remaining Battery Life 93% & Time since last charge: 7 hrs. The % you say is shown in Battery Pro + developed by Nokia itself. the % is average of last 48 hours usage. So Don't fret my friend; closing all the apps by X does not close them rather like OperaMini the tabs and status are in standby mode. They will continue from where you left off. And also you cannot open more than 6 Tabs at once thus saving resources in WP8 Black.

    My Battery experiecne with L520 is as below:
    3g on, lockscreen times out 30 Sec, brightness control set to low(with Automatic Adjust-On), battery saver on(Conserve Until Next Charge), display - sunlight readability On, - battery saver brightness On, lumia colour profile is Neutral, touch sensitivity Normal and double tap as well as WM keys vibrate set at OFF.
    Day 1 - Charged 100% at 10:00 am
    Calls 75 mins(Volume 5/10) (approx), Messaging (5-6), Nokia Music(on Loudspeaker) 1hr 20mins, Internet 30 mins, Games 20-25mins
    Day 2 - @ 10:00 am Battery at 42%
    Calls 45 mins(Volume 5/10), Messaging (3), Nokia Music(on Loudspeaker) 60mins, Internet 10 mins, Games 18-20 mins. It died out at 11:15 pm (approx). Extracted the most juice out of it.

    So proud to say that I have extracted almost 37 hrs from my NL520 - Impressed with the standby battery conservation.

    PLEASE NOTE that I've not installed WhatsApp on my NL520 as it constantly seeks Internet Sync. Though I have 3 email IDs set-up syncing at manual interval

    6-7 hours on low brightness and vibration off on buttons. WiFi on,continuous internet use and occasional gaming. But if my phone was at 70% at night then it is 69-70% in the morning. Touch to tap is on and touch sensitivity is normal. Backup is same when touch to tap is off. So can't blame that.

    Hi! Quick question: I've just bought a lumia 520, very satisfied with the device, average to good battery life, but I wonder, is it normal to lose between 4 and 8 percent overnight (not plugged in obviously), with 3g wifi and background apps turned off?
    07-03-2014 06:42 AM
  21. itzkavin's Avatar
    4 to 8 % over a period of 8 hours is completely normal. My drain rate usually under normal usage is 5% per hour.

    I get about 15 hrs, with wifi on for 12 hrs & usage is restricted to messaging apps like messenger, whatsapp & hike with about an hour of travel time spent on music & little bit of browsing, mostly just mobile nation sites & a few occasional links.

    I do a lot of web browsing and my battery drop to about 50% in around 4 hours. So I'm guessing 8 hours. I always charge it to 100% when I hit 40%

    How long does it take everyones phone to charge? I takes a little over an hour to charge my phone from 40% to 100% The charger always feel warm. Is this normal?

    I have almost everything disabled and no live tiles. I went to bed at 100% and got up 7 hours later and it was at 86%, that seems like a lot of use for a month old new phone that is doing nothing while I sleep. Well I guess it must be doing something, I don't know what.
