michaelmurfy: 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.


I'd be the same..can't wait till mine goes that well. Restarted the device again this arvo and the drain appears to be lower on the battery graph.

Whats the best screen protector/film for the 920?

I have a generic one at the moment but it doesn't go to the edges, anyone tried Skinomi TechSkin covers?

Reckon I found the battery hog culprit. WIFI ON!!

Turn this off and use just cellular connectivity and the battery life curve climbs through he roof.
What is with that? Is it constantly searching for more sites or something? Can I tell it to not look, I know I can tell it to not notify me.

Or is there something I'm missing here. Seems like there is no way to see what programs are using all the battery either.

By default WiFi is only on while screen is and reverts back to 3g, I would be surprised if it is the problem

I keep WiFi on 24/7 and have no battery issues

Same here.. I keep wifi and BT and everything on all the time and have huge battery life.

However it may be the case that your particular scenario is causing it to constantly hunt where mine is perhaps only switching when I leave the office.

If you have the 1308 update then Wifi can run when the screen is off. Try disabling that in Wifi > Advanced. I have mine on, but maybe turning that off will give you a clue as to what is happening.

Ok, make a liar out of me...mine is on and the battery usage is flat lining almost...other thing I changed/disabled this afternoon was Bing lock screen pics, would Bing screen saving use all that battery?

Shouldn't do. I have Bing set as my lock screen and didn't notice any battery differences

I find that my battery lasts all day with wifi, bt and everyone else switched on.

However the one thing I found to cause it to run out quicker if you have your email sync settings to AS THEY ARRIVE. I think this means it is constantly checking as when I set it to a 15min interval I saw I a noticeable increase in battery time

If you really want to figure it out do a full reset back to factory fresh, then only install the Nokia updates, extras&info and such. Don't install anything else, and don't set up any email accounts other than your Microsoft account. Don't enable Wifi or BT.

Run it like that for a couple of days and see what happens. If it still drains, take it back. If it doesn't then you've got something to work with and can install apps and accounts until you find what is doing it.

The most serious battery problem I had turned out to be a faulty inbox on one of my email accounts. That was draining the battery within hours until I wiped the inbox clear on webmail. It did this twice. I also had problems with early versions of Skype and Baconit, but those are all good now.

I use a one hour interval on my 7 email accounts and I just hit the refresh if I need to check right away.

The phone should work fine with everything going so long as there are no bad apps or other weirdness.

I might be keen. I get a Lumia tomorrow and may be in the market for an S3. Can I have the week to figure out if the Lumia is ok?




My views (except when I am looking out their windows) are not those of my employer.
