Is it just me, or is anyone else's Lumia 800 getting bad battery life after updating to Tango. Before Tango (and after the "battery fix" update), I used to be able to get about a day and a half with average use. Now, if I just leave the phone idle overnight it loses about half of its charge.
I checked the diagnostics app and the power consumption seems to have reverted back to the high levels before the battery fix update. Is anyone else experiencing this? It's quite annoying not being able to make it through a full day anymore...

That said, there is an inherent problem with these threads; in that no phone is made equal and something could be affecting your battery more than other peoples. Perhaps you live in a bad signal area and your phone spends all night trying to keep connected. Or perhaps you have a bazillion things updating and checking for notifications all night. Or perhaps an app you've installed has weird background task conditions. Or maybe you just got a duff battery.
My point being, that if you really think it's the phone, take it back and talk to the staff (or go to Nokia Care if there's one near you) to see if there's anything they can do for you. My guess is that they'll just tell you to charge it over night though.

Could this be something that only popped up in select handsets?

I only have Wifi enabled. Never 3G because I am out of the country and the battery life is just horrible. I basically use it like an iPod touch, except that I only check stuff occasionally during the day. I don't use it to listen to music, or play games, or anything like that.
