Even though those weren't running, if you have any account in your Accounts settings those will be polling, you know that?

Also disable push notifications in both Rowi and Facebook while testing.

You should wait around five days to make sure the battery is settled. I can go almost a day and half if I don't use the phone - with Rowi push notifications on, Location update on and WiFi on.

^ekud, that battery graph is horrible! Is that mostly idling or you on your phone all the time?

let's trial this:

Test 1
1. Hard reset your phone via Settings - About
2. Set your regular email account and NOTHING else
3. Watch for your battery usage

Test 2
1. Go to Settings and activate battery saver to ON
2. Go to advanced and set to ' Always'
3. Post your graph usage

Try step 2 first (make sure the battery is fully charged)

I guess just do Test 2 - battery saver ON (advanced - always).

Basically in this mode, all connections are disabled and there will be no apps running in the background when idling. Any apps that you launch, including internet explorer will work fine - so you can still use your phone during this 'test'.

Run the thing completley flat a couple of times. That helps it. I get around 40+ hours from a charge on my 920. Thats with facebook, 2 emails being pushed through a weather app and lock screen changer running.

over the past week its ran itself flat a few times, my 4s wouldn't lose more than 10% overnight and that's with push and background apps running. Its fair to say my venture in windows phone has been nothing more than a nightmare. Will exchange handset one more time (because I really like it, obvious complaints aside)

I did read somewhere that letting the batteries run flat can do more harm than good.



Edit: my phone took 2hours to charge from 1% to 100%. Using wireless charger it took 3 hours from 30% to 100%
