    I was just on a 90 minute phone call... drained 25 % battery, This seems way low, I've owned several lumia 920's, didn't pay much attn to it (regrettably) but I recall it not draining nearly as much.


    So the question is, how much does your phone drain roughly per hour of talk time ?


    Thanks to any responses

    It's rated at 9 hours talk time, but there's a lot of variables here. Is your signal weak or strong? what background task are running? How many times have you fully charged the battery?

    or about 6 hours talk time, which I would expect is in the ball park for the rated talk time - sounds like marginal to fair signal. LTE or 4G or 3G?

    Hmm My fastest connec allowed is lte



    hardly any background tasks running, facebook/weather/battery ( no push notifications)


    Can I get a few more estimates on peoples battery life?


    25 % for 90 mins seems high, or am I high?

    I recall being surprised by how little my battery drained after roughly an hour long call. I don't remember the exact amount though.

    I had an hour phone call last night and it drained about 8% or 9%.

    I've gotten between 8-12% drain from roughly an hour long phone calls.

    yes its about 10% more than it should be, so something else was adding a 6% per hour drain.
