    First of all, after a new software update...your phone needs time to adjust to the new settings. Disable all the background tasks which you don't use. My battery drains quickly because of all the apps going on. I'm a frequent user of WhatsApp, I spend like 23 hours on WhatsApp, 4 hours music playback, and I play loads of games. Anyways since the black update, my phone's battery stays for a longer time. I would recommend you to disable glance because there's not really much need of it, vibration too, ringers for keyboard and other things which doesn't really require a sound, and I guess keep your location, wifi, Bluetooth, nfc off when you're not using it. Prefer WiFi connections rather than mobile data, and maybe keep your highest connection to 3g or 2g. hope this helps.and yes! change the time at which your mail syncs to the server.
    if all this doesn't help a hard reset might help :)
    All the best

    I always try to reset my device after updates. This is something that I came across when cooking and installing roms on Windows Mobile. I'm glad your battery life is better.

    Ive noticed a considerable deterioration in battery usage after Black. Battery Saver appears at about 7pm now on an average day..I might never see it with Amber except with heavy usage.

    My battery life is horrible before black and now worse. Battery Saver is reporting 3 hours left at 48%. I'm lucky if I get 7 hours of use and I'm talking light. Glance is off, high touch is off, NFC, Bluetooth and brightness on auto.

    In my case the amber was the worst update, it ate up the battery. Now after black the battery has increased by 10hours at least i.e on standby measures on full charge taking it from 1day12hrs to 1day21hours on my Lumia 720 .P.S DTTW is on.

    Those with issues with Black update - turn off Glance and Double tap to wake. Disable "allow search when phone is locked".

    Black has made Lumia 92x phones' screen extra sensitive. If your phone is in pocket, most likely it gets woken up by touch of your thighs. Disabling glace and touch will work the magic. Also, these are already suggested in the Lumia 920 battery thread.

    Hi, I have a "query ", I am spanish user with a French rom that it's fine for me with GDR3 (v. ... 155 ... ) and I have a doubt about your batteries... I think that the mobile does not know what battery spent, do "strange things", battery drains randomly and the battery percentage is mostly wrong. Lately the battery lasts longer with the same use, my battery lasts more than a full day except If I use a lot of whatsapp app and others .. (turning it off at night, 4G on, without bluetooth, nfc, one push mail....), but to reach the full day I have to turn it off one or twice, I mean, when I see the percentage around 15 % as I do not trust if this percentage is real, I turn it off one minute or 2 and then I turn it on, and usually I find the percentage of charge above 50-60 % to my surprise, so the mobile support the next day or half day, I'm wondering if the same happens to you??? I realised a hard reset on the phone but the same thing still happens. Conclusion, the battery of the mobile confuses me, Greetings ! (sorry my english)

    I had the same problem. Bought two Nokia 925's, one for my mother and one for myself. My mothers phone would sip the battery at 2% (Zapi battery) and mine would guzzle at 7.3% on Zappi battery. We had the same apps The only difference between the two was that mine had the O2 branding all over it. I sent it away to get it de-branded, it now sips at 2%.
