Nokia 920 Battery Drain and Photos

I have a Nokia 920 (since September 2013) and have noticed significant battery draining issues recently.  As this is my company phone, I have even had it replaced with little to no improved.  Typically I charge (and have tried different and even new chargers) overnight, have a full 100% when I leave for work, and then it drains down to 20-30% by mid-afternoon.  I have read all the battery saving ideas and have tried those.  My question is about photos.  I recently (couple months ago) took lots of photos on vacation.  I saved the pics to SkyDrive and have lots in the Mobil Uploads folder and the Saved Pictures folder.  Are those draining my battery?  I have the photos set to shuffle as well.  I like seeing the various photos but need my battery to last as well.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Probably not the photos. They only sync once.

 

When you have that kind of battery drain its usually because some process is running/stuck, OR the GPS is constantly on.

 

Which apps are running in the background?

The Lumia 1520 will run for 2-3 days of heavy use without charging. Those 92x phones are terrible with battery.

I think for the 1520 it a combination of the new processor efficiency and the battery size.
