Yeah, just noticed the same behaviour on my phone, yesterday after charging was about 1 day and 7 hours, today after charging 1 day and 1 hour. Is there presented someone from Nokia who can comment this behaviour on the brand new phone?
Today i went to a few Nokia Stores and took a look at their Lumia 800s on display.. They were running on an older FW, i couldnt remember the number tho.. 1600.... When i unplugged them from the power source, their full charge battery life was 2 days 7 hours... Me on the current FW 1750.0805.8773.12220 can get 18-20 hours max on a full charge.. Is there anyway we could downgrade to an older FW? Seeing 2 days plus full charge battery life on other Lumia 800s with older FW just makes me sick with mine
I am envious. My Lumia 800 last supposedly 14-17h in after charging, but in reality it is more 10 hours (no games, at most 20 minutes internet/email). Just stand-by is perhaps 24 hours. This is my second Lumia 800, the first one was the same.
Similar story here.
I've had my Lumia 800 for 8 months now. For the first few months the battery was terrible, barely lasting the day, 12-16 hours. After an update in the spring it finally got good like it supposed to be, lasting 2-3 days depending on usage. I was getting 2 days with 3G and Wifi always on and two mail accounts syncing every hour and just other regular usage.
Last week I did a software-reset on the phone to change LiveID account and change the marketplace. I installed all the latest updates, the same apps and using the same settings as before and now I'm back to very poor battery life, around 16 hours.
Can Nokia please make comment on this and recommend a solution.
Please don´t try to blame it on the settings or background apps draining the phone.

I have the same problem, but with a c2-03. Recently updated firmware and battery life is woeful. I am not even a large user. Very small usage, phone mainly on standby but on a supposedly full battery after 1 or 2 phone calls (short) and texts the battery drains to about 1 bar.
Phone was working fine before update and could go at least 4 days, sometimes more on a single charge. Now I'm having to do it every day or so.
Nokia - where's your response to your customers. And yes...don't blame it on settings and apps. Clearly when it's happening on a non-smart phone with very little usage, on a different model, it's a firmware issue.
My fullcharged Lumia 800 showing estimated time remaining: 1 day & 20 hours with Battery Saver turned on. Is this stable?
OS version: 7.10.8773.98
I also experience this issue. The battery life is slowly decreasing every single charge...this is a bug. I was able to use the phone (average daily usage) around 45-48 hours...now only 20 hours...
OK I just did a full restore (and this really **bleep** me off) and the battery seems to act normal again. I WILL KEEP AN EYE OUT ON THIS. And check it after every charge/discharge and every single use of an app to see what caused this issue if it comes back.
Well :-D I only installed all apps I had. I havent used any app just installed them after a clean reset thats all I have done. And its already down to 18 hours at 75% battery. Before the installation i had 1 day and 15 hours at 91% battery.
This is some kind of a bug. Ill go later in the afternoon to my friends at Nokia Care Center here in town and ask them about this.
