Talk time lowered on AT&T's variant of the Nokia Lumia 920 and Nokia Lumia 820

While it might not seem like a lot of time, in the "every second of battery life counts" age that we live in, it might be somewhat upsetting for those AT&T customers in the states to hear that the talk time for the carrier's version of the new Nokia LUmia Windows Phone 8 models has been adjusted downward...

I guess Nokia is stuck to the same principles of physics as everyone else?

Evactly bro. Just carry a charger, neither of my phones get the greatest battery life so I bring a charger for which ever one I'm using that day.

Extended battery cases will be available for the 820

Why only the L820? Why not also for the L920? I could see a Mophie Juice Pack case+battery for the L920.

Would be awesome to see a slim case that works via the wireless charging...

Someone please clarify. If I buy the AT&T version but use it on a 3G network battery consumption would be like 10,400,67?

Perplexing. Not sure what would cause this to happen unless Nokia is being conservative with the numbers for the US version or maybe that ATTs network causes more battery consumption with more pings being required to stay in touch with the signal but I highly doubt that. Just a crazy guess.

I dont think the lower times is cause for concern. It is interesting tho. Maybe its some AT&T services running in the background?

Probably because AT&T have more towers that the phone is recycling through. Doesn't make a difference to me because my phone is always kept in 2G unless I'm web browsing.

Well It won't be a problem for everyone because other persons across the world will be using the "Global Edition" of Nokia Lumia 920.

May be it was an attempt to slightly cut costs for production... But Nokia should've put in at least a 2100~2500mAh, and hopefully bring up their sales, if that's what they want...

Well thats not really a deal breaker because if you compare it to the Galaxy SIII, its battery life is slighlty better
