Ugggh. The battery sucks to begin with, the proximity sensory that turns the screen off when it's against your face is broken, the thing gets hotter than hades just sitting around playing Pandora or charging, and now this?
The batter level dropping... while it's plugged in?!?!!
This might be the straw that broke the camel's back.

Yeah noticed this too - when plugged in via USB connected to cig lighter in car, the battery still drains slowly when running apps like Here Drive... Seems to be no way of keeping the phone charged whilst in the car (of you want to use it for sat nav etc..)

If it is like this no matter what you do (reboots, maybe even after trying a full device hard reset) I would get it replaced. It sounds like a hardware issue. You should not have this many problems with the battery."Bro, you know I lift cause I use a Lumia 920..."

Just wanted to update on my post - I bought the DC20 Nokia usb charger and everything is now fine. Phone charges under heavy use. The old usb charger I was using was obviously rubbish and was not sending enough power to the phone - hence draining whilst on charge.

My 920 is doing the same thing right now! It did it one day last week. I thought it was some kind of fluke, but then it did it again today. My charger at work is the one that came with it, and even after I restarted the phone, it slowly drained with it plugged in. I figured the battery app I'm using was messed up, so I erased it, but even in the Settings, it showed it draining. When I drove home, I had it plugged in my car the whole time, but it just kept dying. Right before I got home, it died on me, so as soon as I got in the house, I plugged it in the charger I have at home (not my wireless charger).
THIS IS WHERE THE WIERD PART HAPPENS:
I plugged it in, then it restarted and showed it charging and 9% on the battery. After ONLY 5 mins (I timed it), it said my battery was 100% FULL. Can someone please explain that to me? ;)

Its a software bug. Call into your nearest Nokia care centre and have them take a look. Also, install a battery app that will monitor the battery status. That way you can keep an eye on it. If it does it again. Get it sent for repair or a replacement

I've used the same chargers I've had since I got the phone, and have never had this problem. The charger at my work desk is the Nokia one that came in the box. My car charger is a cheap one (but has always worked fine), the one I plugged it in at home is to my daughter's Kindle (has always worked fine). I also have my wireless Nokia charging pad by my bed. After it was on there all night, when I grabbed my phone this morning, it only showed 75% charge. I got in the car, plugged it into the charger, then immediately it said 66%, so I took it off, and it has stayed on 66% since. Then, about 10 minutes ago, I looked, and it said 100%, but I haven't had it plugged in for over an hour now. So, I don't think it's my chargers. I'm calling Nokia to see what they say. I love my phone, but this is extremely irritating. I never had this problem until I did that Portico update.

Your battery is loose. You need to vigorously shake the phone and it will be okay again. Sorry that you had to buy the worst phone in the marketNokia Lumia owner 920 since November '12, still hoping Microsoft can get its act together.

So, I got ahold of Nokia Tuesday and they gave me some automated BS message that told me to do all these things anyone as smart as a monkey could do, and nothing worked. Then yesterday evening, my phone started updating again with the 1232.5962.1314.0001 version, so I figured YES, THIS WILL WORK!. Nope...... Oh well, I guess I'll try the hard reset next, and if that doesn't do it, I'm off to AT&T for a new phone.

I think Nokia is doing an awesome job with their phones right now. They've really come out hard where other companies are lagging, but I would really love to see this thing come to life. It has the beautifully, simplified look that everyone loves in the iPhone as well as the excellent OS of Microsoft. Now, if they can just get away from Apple saying they're copying them.

Got my new Lumia this last week, and the switchover was almost seamless. I'm a little disappointed though, because it seems that my battery life on this phone is not a whole lot better than the other one. Lastnight the phone was charged when I went to bed at 10pm, so I didn't put it on the charger throughout the night. When I got up this morning, it was on 18%! WTF! I really like my Lumia, but if something doesn't change soon, I may be looking at the new HTC One
