my sister was having issues last week...probably before the update. The lady at AT&T said that it was because she was using a USB Car Charger and that was causing the freezing. And that Nokia phones could only be used with Nokia chargers.
Obviously that is bull sh*t...as I haven't even unwrapped my Nokia charger and my 920 doesn't have any issues. I use the Wireless maybe 2 days a week and the other 5 charges are split between one at work that came with an old Samsung and one at home that is a 3rd party / dual slot.
But...just a thought for those STILL having the issue...someone out there probably fed the lady the line about the charger...it could have SOME truth to it, in that maybe it doesn't play well with old/weak chargers.

Well, I had my first issue after the Portico update this morning. I had my 920 on the wireless charging pad last evening and when I took it off I noticed it was very hot. I had not had this happen for over a month now. I put it on the wired charger when I went to bed and it was still really hot, too hot to hold for an extended period of time. When I woke up, the phone was constantly restarting which had never happened to me before. I took it off the charger and it stopped rebooting except it was stuck in airplane mode. I tried turning it off but it kept turning itself back on. I restarted the phone and still in airplane mode. The WiFi would connect to my network but would not pull any data from it. After about 30 minutes the battery was still hot and constantly discharging. It was down to 30% after 30 minutes and kept dropping so I plugged it in again to keep it from dying. I waited for the AT&T store to open and took it in to get it replaced. They tried to turn airplane mode off and couldn't and they couldn't believe how hot it was either. They called corporate to ship me a replacement, but of course today is a Friday. When I got home, I reset the phone which just gave me rotating gears. I then flashed the phone and it is still stuck in airplane mode and won't pull any data from WiFi. Also, while writing this post the phone was on the wall charger and went from 19% to 16%.

Yup, I'm the same. Used to go a day and half, now I barely get through the day. It definitely has something to do with apps in the background, the idle drain on mine is ridiculous now. I wish MS would let us see what's eating at our batteries, the advanced settings don't really help much :(

I received a replacement with the portico update. Multiple issues, anybody can help?
Battery draining on idle - decreased from 85% to 65% in 1.5 hours while i was sleeping. I can tell there is something going on as my alarm clock is receiving feedback from the phone like how we used to with the olden flip phones.
Im probably going to get another exchange, but i thought the portico update would resolve the reboots but apparently it didnt and the battery life will only last probably 7-8 hours.
Settings bluetooth off, nfc off, 4 emails 2 on as arrive other 2 manual, 3 running background tasks - weatherflow, locksider, and battery status.
Here is the thing, i was given a loaner by nokia to use as my original phone had battery issues. The loaner was a 920 as well and with the same settings, it worked great and had almost no issues except the black screen when calling which can be resolved by blowing into the sensor.
i finally get a replacement and back to the same battery issues with the same settings and apps as i did a restore. Not sure if i want to keep a loaner, but nokia said i cant keep anyway. But i have to give up the loaner since my nieces phone bricked so now she will use so im stuck with this until i request another replacement.
Im beginning to think if the better camera was worth it instead of getting an 8x, my coworker has an 8x and chose that because he is a heavy user as he travels and sacrificed the better camera for the estimated 3 hours of additional battery life over nokia.

I finally got a 920 and did the update. Two places are broken now. When sending text, I usually type in landscape mode. Tipping the phone to landscape and the text window adjusts. That no longer happens. Same with my picture hub. If I turn the phone to landscape, the image should flip but now it doesn't move at all. Find my phone shows OFF on the screen even though when you tap to go inside the slider is set to ON. Any ideas here?

People that have random reboots should think about getting a replacement phone. I have had many smartphones. The 3 phones I had with random reboots were all hardware issue. My Lumia 920 has no random reboot or freezing at all.

I haven't read thru the thread so I'm sorry if this is a repeat but my g/f and I are having an issue where we get to the phone and it is off when we take it off the charger and have to turn it back on. Does anyone elses do the same, its kind of an annoyance when I need my alarm during the week. I have seen and noticed mine does the whole brightness back to high and have to go back into settings to turn auto on back off and go to low.also the charging issue has only started happening since the portico update

This is my 4th Lumia 920, everything is fine except battery, my phones would last about 12-15 hours a day. Now this one came in 2 days ago and I automatically installed portico. I'm getting about 7-8 hours of battery. And I drains like 2 percent every 10 minutes. Ive cycled the battery three times, and just now did a full restore. Gonna see if this works, I'm just wondering is it the battery? Or the update? I don't really wanna send this in for a 5th one. My last phone had the old software and I updated it and it worked great, this one is terrible, also even light usage and battery will drop, lets say I text a couple people, my battery will drop about 2 percent for that

I had a reboot last night while watching a show on Netflix, it is the second time since I got the phone, once before the update and the one yesterday. I don't know what it could be, the restart issues from what I've read happens more often. Anyone else experience this?

There is a bug with "Find My Phone".
I have 2 920's (wife + me). Both same firmware, wiped at same time to factory reset and setup on same day.
In Settings, my phone shows "Find my phone" Off, despite when you click on it, it shows On. And when On there are no secondary check boxes. Hers shows different options.

My issues: Post Portico
1. Bluetooth in car radio. I have aftermarket Pioneer and phone will connect, no freezes after the update where it did before. However, I have to put in the pair code every time. My old 900 never needed to put in the code except the first pair. My bluetooth headset works fine.
2. Brightness on auto. Notice this happens in a dimly lit room more often. Tried the dark room calibration to no avail. Also, display does not reappear during phone call when pulled away from face. Noticed blowing into front camera near the sensor brings it back. This is definitely a sensor calibration issue.
3. Random battery drain. I've tried battery discharge and that seemed to help a bit. Still having drain issues on idle. I'll go to sleep at 100% and when I wake 6 hours later, I have 96% with Facebook app installed. If I delete Facebook, i'll wake to 100% after 6-7 hours of sleep. Settings are: no toast, no lockscreen backgrounds, no chat. Only things running in the background are Accuweather, Battery Status, and The Weather Channel.
Still have the Xbox music playlist/app sync issue, but that's a whole other can of worms...
If these things didn't exist and there was Instagram and Pandora apps available, constant battery reports instead of 30 minute updates, ability to drop down the battery level anywhere, actual sync to W8 that worked, inability to view/click on certain elements in Internet Explorer, (sites like Academy Sports and Wal mart where you try to enter in a zip code to find locations do not work), inability to view animated GIF files outside of the browser, (i.e. messaging app, in photo viewer, etc.) this might/could be the baddest phone ever.
Until then, i've debated going back to the darkside. Can't imagine how others feel.

Ok, at 10:30pm my Lumia 920 battery was at 79%, didn't charge overnight. Didn't Touch my phone until morning @1030am. Battery is now at 62% after 12 hours. Is it the battery or is it the update? Literally no background apps running. Fetch mail every 2 hours, WiFi off

Yesterday, had some light usage with Phone and finished after 12 hours around 78%. Today, took about 25 pictures with a few cinemagraphs. Uploaded all those pictures to Sky Drive. Downloaded two apps. Did about 30 minutes of news/internet browsing. Battery is 25% after 11 hours. Not sure if that's expected or battery just being inconsistent.

Only issue after the update so far, is the brightening/dimming issue. Damn screen dims and brightens constantly , mostly under medium artificial lights. It seems to be fine in the sun, brightly white lit rooms, and dark room ( IE. movie theater, or room with just the tv on). Only issue I had with this before was blurry day time pictures; now it takes several shots to get a decent one, which is a bit better than before.

My girlfriends had GREAT battery life prior to and now she is complaining about it. I have the cyan and she has the yellow 920. My cyan one has sucked from the get-go (12 hours full charge), hers was terrific (1 day 14 hours) according to the settings screen.
Also, our phone restart a lot. I notice mine does more than hers, but I use mine more too. It has not locked up anymore though. I was having major lock up issues before Portico and has not locked up once (just maybe restarts now. Haha).

My battery is fine however while connected to Bluetooth and listening to music on either Nokia music or Xbox music, once the song ends it stops from playing the next song. Turning off Bluetooth and playing the music through the speaker of the phone, it has no problem playing the next song up. Even skipping a song results in it not playing.

My battery has gotten worse since the update. I'm finding that just about anything I do causes the phone to warm up. Playing games makes the phone HOT, and surfing the internet and browsing some other apps warms up the phone. Battery drain is really noticeable after playing a game or browsing for just 10 or so minutes.
I don't recall complaining about this before Portico. With very minimal usage, I'm getting at least 18-20hrs, but with even moderate usage, it will usually die between 7-9pm (about 12 hours off charger)
Should I try to return? I'm on my second Lumia.
