Just bought the Nokia Lumia 710 from Rogers in Canada and everything works fine and i love it but it seems like the battery runs out pretty fast. Is that normal?
With a full charge, the battery drops to about 50% after less than 5hrs with normal use (check ppl hub, txt msgs periodically). Mind you I have a few background tasks enabled but I'm assuming WP7 accounts for those when it comes to battery life. I have the latest update of 7.10.8107.79
Is anyone experiencing the same thing? Is that the norm for the phone or do I have a lemon?

Well, the 710 does have a fast processor and a small battery... Some of what you're experiencing may be due to it still being a fairly new device... Battery life on my HD7 was a disaster for the 1st couple weeks: I would've been THRILLED to get 10 hours out of it back then! Now I get at least 15 hours per charge if I lay off the games

GOLD 2430MAH BP-3L HIGH CAPACITY BUSINESS BATTERY FOR NOKIA 603 LUMIA 710 | eBay
I've heard that w/ some phones, ppl should use the battery til it's complete drain and then recharge it to the full to get the max utilization of the battery. Is that true? or is that only applicable to older generations of batteries?
Or is it just like freestaterocker stated above, that i just need to break in the battery for some time first?

Also possibly contributing too poor battery life is new toy syndrome, where you actually play with the device more than you realize... I know I did. :D

I mean, you would think that if the Nokia engineers could have fit a larger capacity battery in the phone, they would have. I mean, I can understand a 100-300mAh increase with a battery that has the same dimensions, but over 1000? I sort of doubt it.
You're welcome to try it out and review it for us though. :P The seller seems to have a seven day return policy, but I don't know if that's enough to evaluate a battery.

Not sure what kind of device you are coming from, but a weak 3G,or is that 4G, signal could adversely affect your battery. The teeny 1230mAh battery in my Surround can get me through 10-14 hours of moderate to heavy use. EMail, texts, browsing, reading news, and at least a hour in these forums. That's with WiFi always on, 8 background tasks, 4 email accounts (2 push, 2-30 minutes), auto brightness, etc. Pretty light with games though, which is a battery killer. You battery should get a bit stronger with time. Avoid anything but OEM batteries if you possibly can. All the others are full of fluff.

My battery life isn't that good on my Lumia on tmobile. Then again, I'm coming from the HTC Radar, which had amazing battery life so perhaps that's why its worse for me. The faster processor and smaller battery would def cause a drop in avg battery life, but i guess i didn't expect it to be this much :(
I also applied the manual 8107 hack today so I will see if that improves anything but doubt it :(

I'd say I'm in the light-mid usage range and it's been good enough for me so far. After a 9-10 hour work day I'm usually around 70% battery. That's with probably 30-40 texts, a dozen emails, a few hours of web browsing and reading twitter.
I don't do a lot of gaming or video watching, so that probably helps.
I've only had the phone for a few days, so I'm hoping it gets even better.

Knock on wood I'm happy I haven't any battery problems.. My battery last and by the end of my work day I have about 30% left on it.. So hopefully it continues to last.. I have the Nokia lumia 710 by the way.. :-p
