Life's not fair!
Just to add to my earlier post: I have 3 emails account. 1 account to sync hourly. 1 daily and 1 manually. So nothing really is using much data or battery in the background. I hesitate removing Drive because it turns out to be useful when I am out sometimes. You just require this thing randomly when you are lost somewhere, you know what I mean?

I'm an imposter here as I have an 820. My issues are exactly the same though. Average battery life generally, but weird battery indications. I've seen 100% for 11 hours. I've even gotten about an hour's light usage at 0%. The battery threads over at 820 just reflect what you guys see here. It all makes little sense. I just can't understand how producing a reliable battery indicator can be so difficult in this day and age. On top of that, did nobody at prototype stage use one some months back and see how the battery went? Clearly not!

So far, I've only had two days where battery life was absolutely horrible. Prior to each of those days, I left my phone on until it shut down on its own, then put it on the wireless charger. The wireless charger doesn't seem to supply enough power to make it through the booting process, so the phone shuts off by itself...and then tries again, due to the detection of the wireless charger. I then used the wall charger to completely charge the phone, but the battery would discharge very quickly the next day.
I had to recharge it a couple times before it restored to its original battery life (usually lasts about 10-12 hours). Not sure why.

Anyways for this same reason, today I did a soft reset and this has somehow magically improved battery life DRASTICALLY with 4G on all day (yep, it has lasted itself a day with medium to heavy usage as I do every day). This is some wonder. Whats wrong with this platform? Is it the OS or is it the hardware?
I am sure Blue is not gonna do any good for us!

I honestly have had no problems with battery life. Have WiFi always on, NFC, four emails, Facebook, twitter, linkedin all syncing. Play games for about thirty minutes, browser for over an hour a day.. Make it 16 hours on a charge no problem. That's not including the fact I send about 3-5 thousand text messages a month and talk on phone for about an hour.

Something I've noticed on my Lumia 920 is that, if I take it off the charger at 100%, it stays at 100% for a pretty long time compared to how long it stays at any other percentage. I'm not sure if this is how all smartphone batteries act but that's what I noticed. If the battery acted the same way it did at 100% then I would easily be able to get through the day with heavy usage. However, after the battery drops below 100%, then the battery starts draining a lot more quickly.
Right now I'm experimenting with topping off my battery. So far, idle time has improved but overall battery is about the same.
