    No changes on mine. Battery life is the same. I don't normally use Hey Cortana, but I turned it on and it's working fine.

    Did a hard reset and my battery is still struggling to last more than 5 hours. Getting high discharge rates

    Battery life is as stellar as always. One of the few bright spots on this phone. Sadly, it's not the device so it makes no sense to switch to another phone. Them speakers....

    This question is not directed at any specific build version...During moderate to heavy usage are you guys seeing some juice left at the end of the day?

    Seeing it has the same capacity battery as the 950 I am pretty comfortable saying this phone should go longer than the 950 due to the SD 820. I am just wondering how much better the power management is based on experience.

    Thanks.

    From 8:00 this morning to 10:30 this evening. Texting, one hour talking, FB and browsing the net, 69% remaining. Battery life is amazing. I truly do love this phone!

    My battery isn't lasting very long 6-7 hours at best. Instagram heats up my phone and seems to be the reason for any drain im getting. Build .594 I was getting 13+ hours

    Here's an example of the battery life I'm getting on the latest .694 build

    I've done a hard reset restored from a back up and a hard reset. Where I didn't restore from a back up

    I don't use Instagram, but I use Facebook a lot. That also included a lot of web browsing and two hours of voice calls. Also played one*game.

    Well I'm just going to swap my phone out tomorrow and see if that helps. This will be the second swap I've done. Does ur phone overheat at all? Mines overheats using ig but stops when I leave the app...didnt do this on .594 either


    It's hard to tell if it's the phone or a build bug

    No, my phone has never overheated and, if anything, battery life has gotten better with the latest build (although it's been fantastic for me all along). I wonder If your problem could be related to IG? Maybe someone else who uses it could chime in about their battery life. If it's not that,*maybe it is your phone. It's hard to believe you could have gotten two buggy ones, but I guess it's possible!
