I just bought Lumia 610 one week ago and the battery lasts for 1 day TOPS!!!
When the phone is fully charged says that the battery will last for 19h.
Yesterday I talked on my phone for 15min, listen music for 30min on my handsfree and after 6h !!! the battery was gone.
I did an experiment. I fully charged my phone to 100% and leave it without doing anything and just checked hour after hour how many percent of the battery is used per hour without doing anything ! Turns out that at first used between 1 and 1.5% per hour so 90h of standby (the claimed 270h is NONSENSE !!!), but when I reached 48% and leaved my phone and went to sleep at the morning I discovered that the phone was turned off and the battery was empty.
I am with the latest update and have NOT installed anything, I don't have any applications running in backgroudn also!
I bough the phone because I like the windows look and was claimed that the battery will last long. Well something of a BIG LIE.
Been using nokia's all my life ... 3330, 6300, 5800xpress, C7 and now 610 Lumia and things are comming to an END, I am very disappointed.
Anny suggestions NOKIA ?
That's the only way I can reach you by the way.
Bough the tell from VIVACOM Bulgaria ...
Firstly, the battery takes about 10 charge cycles before it reaches optimum performance.
However, i your case, it sounds like there are services on the phone that are on all the time using the battery even when the phone is not being used. These are things you should loot at.
Try these and see.
By the way, this is a usewr to user support forum so you wont get a reply from Nokia here either. To contact them directly, use the Nokia Support tab to the bottom right of this screen.

thanks for the answer.
Set all emails social apps to sync manually or at as long an interval as possible.
- As I said, I don't have any additional applications that are installed like skype, twitter or else. My email is not set as well. The phone is with it's default settings and nothing installed on it. I took it from the box and added just my phone contacts, nothing else.
- How can I do that.
- It's disabled.
If in area with bad coverage, change Highest connection speed to 2G
- It's with good coverage .. the capital of Bulgaria .. Sofia and also I have unlimited 3G Internet access from my mobile provider, I cannot benefit the full speed if this option is on, but then again will try that because currently is unusable.
Lower screen brightness
Not a logical option. Yes it will increase battery life, but I'm buying a phone with nice display, if dimmed then better to use my old C7. Will try this also ....
The battery is currently around it's 6-7th cycle .. So guess I will reach the 10th in Friday LOL ..
You should find the location setting at Settings>Location. This is to turn on the GPS positioning. Only turn it on when you need it. If not then best left off to extend battery life.
I said approximately 10 charge cycles but it also depends on how you discharge and charge. It normally takes about 2 weeks.
