    Swipe left from the start screen, in the app list find battery sense, open it and it will show you all the apps which are running in background, click on the app which you don't want to run in background and turn off the run in background slider.

    I am also experiencing the drain after cyan. As others mentioned, it is most likely due to background apps.

    however, before turning off background, beware you will not be able to utilize the apps effectively. For e.g if I turn off background for flashlight, as i lock the phone, it goes off. Whereas turning off background was supposed to mean that app sends no data packets whether it is running or not.

    Same here. Major battery drain after cyan update. I tried a soft reset, but it's still the same, tried turning off background apps and still did not notice a change. I finally just did a hard reset, and now the battery life goes for maybe a day now. That's with cellular data on.

    All of these battery drain reports from people who upgrade to 8.1. Makes me wonder if I should just stick with 8.0. That is, if I ever do get the option to upgrade at all. Haven't even got the first minor update yet. Loving my battery life with 8.0.

    I think they have made it knowingly to reduce battery life ,I am using 520 it used to give 1.5 days worth battery but because 530 is said to provide 13 hrs of juice same is achieved on my 520 post 8.1 update

    I hate night death of Lumia 720. The battery indicator should behave for user as linear...
