Lumia 900 getting hot/battery drain

Hey all,

I got a new Lumia 900 recently and have noticed that the battery hardly lasts half a day.

I have emails configured as push, whatsapp running and the weather flow app. I have turned off all other background tasks.

1. Does the people hub sync in the background? The feeds update only when I open the app, so I am not sure.
2. Does the me hub sync in the background?
3. Will removing their tiles from the start screen, will they stop syncing? Or do I have to unlink my Facebook, twitter and linked accounts completely?
4. If I turn in background tasks for a program like flickr/imdb, will they sync even if they dont have live tiles on the home screen? What do they sync? I have always seen them start from scratch when I open he apps.

I am having battery issues as well. I have all email push to manual and all other battery drainers turned off. phone lasts half a day at best. Could this be something in an update that has been recently installed? my phone has os version 7.10.8112.7.

Re: Lumia 900 getting hot/battery drain

Lumia 900 that I was loaned set up exactly the same as 800 lasted only half the time, although didn't have it long enough to see whether battery improved after a number of charge/discharge cycles which is sometimes the case.

Happy to have helped forum with a Support Ratio = 42.5

Re: Lumia 900 getting hot/battery drain

These are the background tasks that are actually running

 

Weather Flow

 

I have other background tasks listed in Settings-->Applications-->Background Tasks, but they are not pinned on my start screen and have push disabled from within the applications. Will this result in any battery drain?

 

These are the active tiles on my homescreen

 

Me

Messaging

Email (2 emails, both push)

Whatsapp

Weather Flow

Pictures

People

 

From what I see, Notifications in 'me' are pushed. People/pictures updated their feeds on demand, when needed.

 

My battery lasts around 14 hours.

Re: Lumia 900 getting hot/battery drain

check settings and find phone in the settings. Whatever you do mot need switch it off. I found leaving location services on hit the battery.

When setting up new apps most will say at the beginning do you want to enable live tile. If yes then you are enabling push.

Re: Lumia 900 getting hot/battery drain

I used Nokia for many years in Europe and loved it.

When Lumia 900 came out I thought "I'm going home".

But I have the same issue for a while since I bought Lumia 900 beginning of May. Especially disturbing the phone getting really hot from time to time, it happened few times since I got it. And the power drain is horrible - but also not always. Can't figure out those coming-going issues. Anybody knows where to read about it?
