    ... No feedback, ok so maybe a bit different question: how much battery will be used for an hour of web browsing with LTE enabled on the most recent builds? How it changed from the early beginning?

    Ok mate, so I recharged my phone more than 20 times since download Battery X app.
    I use my 950 with no mercy and have to charge it over night untill 5:40 am and the again at 4 pm. Before sleep I have about 40%.
    Note that it's curently winter where I live and it's pretty cold outside wich I don't like so I spend quite a lot of time on phone. Internet, chat. I never play games, but last few days I hooked up on Candy Crush.
    Some SS from Batter X are here.

    To the OP: seriously, too many impossible questions & too many variables. Some people manage fine with the battery, others don't. Some units have battery problems, others are better. Power consumption can be influenced by a million different factors like what apps are installed and/or running in the background, exactly which build of W10M you're on, how far you are from the cell tower, screen brightness, which website you are accessing, is there an 'r' in the month etc etc. For me personally, battery life is fine for one day with two busy email accounts set to 'push', wifi on, some Twitter/FB/Podcast usage and Skype pinging at me 9am-6pm for work.
    No, it isn't going to match your 4100mah Android phone.

    Yes I understand everyone uses their phones different way and each phone works a bit different, that's why I asked about an hour of web browsing: in this case other factors shouldn't cause any difference as constant usage of the browser for an hour would be the main battery drainer... If you know what I want to say... I also read a lot about battery problems, so my question is mainly for those who don't have such issues. I'm not trying to show how good my current phone is, in fact I don't think it's good (many system failures, already few hard resets, laggy OS, and I still think that 4100mah battery plus HD screen should give much better results...) I had lumia 640 which was fantastic phone until upgraded to the new w10m, after that I realised that the new system is much better but it also needs better hardware, that's why I really want to come back to Windows phones, but I would like to be sure that it meet my requirements...

    Thanks for that, so you say that you charge your phone twice a day (like in the morning and then late afternoon)? If so then it doesn't sound too optimistic... By the way, where are you from? You said it's cold winter now... Same here where I live (Poland)... Cheers

    Yes, I remove it from charger in the morning and have to recharge it in the afternoon.
    It doesn't sound optimistic, but, as I said I'm pretty heavy user.
    I guess if you use your phone "normally", it could pass through day.
    If you can get L950 for a good price (I got mine for about 170€), and you like W10m OS, I would recommend it.
    I'm from Croatia, btw. ☺

    My battery has been decent initially. Battery would last from about 8am -4/6pm on pretty frequent whatsapp and game usage.
    But the last three builds(I'm on Prod release btw) I don't know, phone heats up like crazy and battery will go from 100% at 8am to 20% at 12pm, still heavy whatsapp(i blame the groups) but no more gaming really. I'll install that battery app and see.

    I got a 950 recently, and in my experience, it seems better than it did when I first tried one last year. It still roughly meets a day but having battery saver on has helped me squeeze out a little bit more.

    That's what I was getting, about a day. Not great but not bad.

    That's good to know, thanks! I wasn't sure if it was just me. I kind of wish that there was a way to reduce the resolution (for battery life savings) but I'll deal with battery saver.

    I use the Insider app to check battery use, and it shows 8:30 to 10:30 hours of daily battery life, depending on usage. I have screen brightness set to Suggested, Data off, Bluetooth off, Wifi on, Location on, Windows Hello on. Games and Edge browsing are the biggest battery drains, Facebook is no problem at all. I do use battery saver which occasionally comes on late in the evening, but with wireless charging it's so convenient to just pop it on the plate when required.
