I am just loving my new 920.
Strangely it not really new, it just feels like it is because my battery has overnight gone from struggling to make it through a day to being a potential multi-day phone.
I have no idea what happened, but prior to last week (around when the PDF update came from MS), my battery wouldn't last more than a day, sometimes barely making it to lunchtime.
Now it has got to the end of a couple of days with 75% battery left, and used basically nothing overnight (graphs show a flatline).
I have no idea what changed after a month, but having a battery that performs similar to my old iPhone is a refreshing place to be.
Anyone else seen any massive improvements recently?

Mines been inconsistently "good since I did a hard reset. I think half my problem is battery sense is all over the place. I deleted and reloaded battery sense this morning because of the % drain was not reflection % of battery life, Battery % was staying high and % drain was a little to high, and battery % jumped 5% and % drain dropped way down. Ehh....

I think part of the problem is that the battery levels displayed through the settings or battery monitoring apps are approximations rather than accurate readings and that we, as owners, believe a 30% reading really means 30%.
According to past readings I was eating up to 20% per hour with very little usage. Last weekend I was playing a game, got distracted, and put the phone down while the game was still running. Needless to say, this fully drained the battery to the point where it wouldn't even boot when it started charging. Took about 20 minutes to get enough of a charge for it to boot itself.
Since completely draining the battery I now get 18 to 24 hours before it drops below 30%.
Mrs. 'tude was complaining about her battery so last night when her phone was at 16% I opened Nokia Music and played tunes and games until the battery died... 4.5 hours later!
That's why I think some of the battery "problems" are more perceptions than realities.
My phone has been off the charger for 8 hours today and I'm at 85% with "1 day 6 hours left".
Maybe I just got lucky but it would be interesting to know from others if they see any improvement after completely draining their battery.
Now, if it could just sync with Zune my Lumia 920 would be the greatest phone ever!
