I would lose about 0.6~1.0% charge per hour overnight and thats with everything on email data etc.

I only use the NZ Herald app which plays videos fine, but you are right via normal website they dont play, you learn something new every day!!

I went from a S3 to the 920 and never looked back but the S4 keeps tempting me hence my interest in your thoughts given that you have both handsets. The availability (or non availability) of the pure Google OS will probably sway me in the end not for the pure UI experience but more for the timely OS updates, imagine that a Samsung branded Android that actually gets timely updates lol

What was the reason why you wont look back to S3?
I had a Galaxy S3 but i find it was a little laggy but was way better than galaxy nexus.


It's hard for me not to go back to my S4. It's just much easier to use and what you can think of it has it. I do like the metro interface on the mobile compared to Windows 8.

Opinions please.

Fully charged before bed last night, left unplugged over night to get idle stats.
All back ground apps turned off where possible other than battery stats.
Wifi turned off
Bluetooth on
Push email on for 1 365 account and 1 Outllok account.

Stats update:
Remaining charge 78%
Est time remaining 13.0 hours
Time since last charge 8.0
Current discharge rate 5.6%
Peak discharge rate 22.5%
Avg discharge rate 5.4


Seems poor to me, what do you think?


Not sure what I can do to get 24hrs, would have to turn off push email probably, then may as well dump the phone because it would stop being a smart device really.

Actually there were other accounts there too

Linked in account
Nokia account
Facebook account

running in the back ground.

I've deleted the Linked in and Nokia accounts, set Outlook to poll hourly only.

See what happens.


The 920 has had 8 months to sort this stuff out!

I had Office 365 account, Windows Live, LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook, Skype accounts. These accounts don't sync that frequently.

Follow my tips. Things like turn messaging off for Facebook for example is a good saver...

It's hard for me not to go back to my S4. It's just much easier to use and what you can think of it has it. I do like the metro interface on the mobile compared to Windows 8. 




The key things i like with the L920 is the smooth OS, awesome camera, call quality and battery life. WP8 is an OS that does what it does fairly well and the metro skin works well in practice, the S3 whilst it did nothing wrong the screen redraw lag annoyed me and in general comparison it jsut doesn't feel in the same league from a touchy feely perspective. Android definitely has infinite more possibilities but with that comes other issues not so present on WP8, higher data usage, rogue apps, basically by giving developers and users so much access there is simply more likelihood of things going wrong.

For me, having used WP8 for over 6mths now (and it has come along nicely over this time) I suspect it will never be cutting edge enough to keep people like me interested for the longer term, that said I will continue down the WP8 path until the S4 is on some form of deal that you cannot let it slip by, at this stage I feel no urge to drop everything and race out and get one now

k, how much does the 2G hunting thing affect the 920? I'm happy to turn that off if it does, I go to Aussie a bit and they operate on 3g so probably don't need the 2G anyway. I'm running on the XT network here.

My 920 has been pulling battery life out of thin air lately. Since the 1308 update I've been going to bed with about 50% battery left, but this past week I'm ending each day with 70-75%... weird, but nice.

Now that is just dirty talk right there!

hehehe.. sounds crazy, but it's on 80% right now at 9pm. Plus I have 7 email accounts, Wi-Fi, BT/NFC and full compliment of background tasks running all the time. I just used it for email, phone, browsing/news apps, and a little gaming today.

I've been watching it with a nice app called 'Battery' for a few weeks. It has a constant graph so I can see it over time.

I'm trying to recall what updated itself in the last few days, but nothing obvious springs to mind.

Is there a way I can check where my Nokia 920 was imported from?

I simply use my phone, today made approx 30mins of calling, heaps of messages (emails, texts, twitter) and used the camera, it's sitting on 46% since taking it off charge this morning and says it's got about 12hrs left.

I do consider myself a heavy user, WiFi, Bluetooth, NFC are all switched on (and I use them all) as well as Twitter, Facebook and Linkedin sync + 2x email accounts.

How I see it, charge it each night, it get's through the day, stop stressing about it and use your phone the way it was intended to be used.
