I don't complain about battery, only after i do everything is in power to do to save it. As i was saying, in standby can stay long enough. The problem is while using it. My e-mail is set to manual, i don't need it to sync every 30min, 5 hours or day. Almost any running background process for apps is blocked, i don't need any kind of auto-sync. I like to have full control over what i want to see and what not. Even though i don't have so much control over the processes (better said. NONE)as i had with Symbian. Still, battery is pretty much pathetic. I just don't understand how could Nokia put this small battery in such a demanding device. The camera is just like a hungry baby. I'm afraid to take pictures when running low and no way to charge it cause camera is just sucking the life out of this device like like eatin' candy's. I' quite upset. Anyway, one day i will get used to it or sell it...

I think you don't use sim net on your device and just use to capture a few shots and 20 30 and 30 to 50 min of call per day. Otherwise Lumia device can't survive a full day with net and whatsapp usage
the prices are going down because Nokia want to sell their windows phone by any means possible and start their android phones.
So, I am with the phone 7 months so far and I am completely happy with the device. And the battery life is just cool, no complaints, 1.5, 2 days in one charge. Smooth and reliable. And there is appgap no more.

But battery life of lunia devices kicked me back to symbian and android. Even more worse than iphone or low end androids. I was using 720 and 920. About 720 they said this is the best wp8 device and battery lasts upto 1 day with heavy usage. Bla bla. But for me it couldn't hod battery for next 8 hours under my normal usage.
I use this phone as a alternative for camera and gaming like psp. Good to play with it. Kudos!!
AnonD-80308, 16 Jun 2014does anyone have any issues with this phone? does it hangs/freezes? is it slow and laggy? If there are lags there is something with the app i use. In rest there is no lag. The only problem which i really don't like AT all, is that i'm struggling to use it more then 18 hours without battery drain. I don't know if everybody experiences this, but my 1020 does not drain the battery, it eats it. The only time i have good battery is when i'm not using it in anyway. In standby can hold till 4 days. But just 10 minutes of use and my battery is going down like seconds. 1 percent per minute. And with camera is even worse. More the 2 percents per minute. My battery is just pathetic. And believe me, i turned everything off. Formatted it twice, factory reset updates installed... All i can see is that is getting worse, not better... So now i'm in the same boat with android guys (whom i always mocked and laugh at cause of their pathetic battery's) struggling for one day of normal use with a device. This is another area Symbian is a winner. And with this Symbian wins quite allot of areas. The only thing making me not throwing it out the window is the camera and it's lovely hardware. But if nothing changes after the 8.1 official update i' thinking quite hard to sell it. I need battery, then the rest...

Anonymous, 14 Jun 2014Hi.. how can we change the timer for the camera?? thanksIf you use the Nokia Camera App, you can simply open the settings and select "timer" where you can automatically adjust the time, from 2, 5 and 10 seconds.

Really like this fone, but the only drawback is the battery. At first, it wasn't too bad, it wasn't as bad as the 920, but now it is. And I don't want to "stop using this" and "stop using that" cos wot is the point in having a smartphone when you can't use their features?

Besides, it comes for around 500 euro, rather than the 600 euro pricetag previously rumored.
