The first week wasn't very kind to me, I got the feeling in my stomach that something wasn't right... The battery would drain VERY quickly. But now two weeks later, I'm finding myself through a whole work day with moderate use with 60% remaining. It's got to calibrate.

I'm still not hitting my 2-year-old iPhone 4's battery life... But I'm giving it time. And this is at least acceptable.

We really need to get off this myth of "calibration" for Li-ion batteries. All calibration does now is just give you a more accurate reading, its not a way to squeeze more juice out of your battery. Battery memory doesn't apply to Li-ion batteries, only nickle based. You only want to do calibration every few months or when you notice your readings kinda go bonkers (li-ion shouldn't be completely discharged often.) This will do nothing more than give you an accurate reading, you're not going to suddenly get 6 more hours out of it.
OP: Many things can cause battery drain, a bright screen probably being the biggest. LTE also drains quicker than 3G, things have got much better though in that department.

I’ve had my 8X since November 16th. The only thing I recall doing immediately was turning off NFC. With my screen at medium brightness, I can easily make it through a full day and more with moderate use. Now if I am watching a ton of video or playing games like Civilization Revolution for hours, my battery drains very fast. I feel the battery life of my 8X is easily on par with iPhone 5 and very close to the 4S I use for work.
That said, some have experienced 8X battery problems. If you feel you have a defective unit you should exchange for one that works properly.

Volts and Amps... There it becomes technical... But more amps is the key. Portico improves the battery by a good margin! My phone is doing great with the update!*** Forza Windows Phone 8 ***
