Ok, I am not 100% sure, but so far my Nokia Lumia 920 has been hanging on with normal battery life and no heat for the past 24 hours and I just couldn't stop myself from sharing my findings.
Before I got my 920, I was searching and reading for it's remarkable specifications, and after I got the phone I continued to search, but this time for a remedy for the overheating and battery drain issue. I have to stay, I never experienced any reboots (maybe because I don't Facebook or Tweet). I also read several sites and different blogs, were people shared their thoughts of the cause, linking it to different programs and settings. Therefore, I would like to share with you the programs and the settings that I have on my 920:
- Nokia Drive + Beta (running in the background)
- CNN (running in the background)
- Weather (running in the background)
- IMDb (running in the background)
and for the setting, with the exception of Internet Sharing which is OFF, I have the following ON:
- NFC (tap+Send)
- Upload images to SkyDrive
It might sound crazy, but have a look at my other finding for backup error:
Here is what I would recommend to do. After installing all your programs, go to the program page and launch every single application, one after the other and accept the terms and conditions of every single application that you have installed. Especially the ones that require your permission to use your data and location services. Also go inside your Game folder and launch every single installed game. Restart and monitor your phone. After doing that, if you still feel the battery issue is still there, turn on Air Plane mode, restart then turn air Plane mode off again. I think the key is in the first step. My issue has been resolved, so I just don't know if the Air Plane mode is required or not.
I don't know the logic behind this remedy, but it worked with me (so far at least...) and if I have to give a reason, I guess some programs are still searching for our permission to use the location services and we just have to accept the terms and conditions so that it stops searching. Just a thought, I don't know and I could be wrong, but my phone is working perfectly normal so far, and I will update this post if I notice anything.
Don't forget to mark this post "Me too" if this has resolved your issues.
