    Use a dark theme, switch off apps that run in background, switch off glance if not required! Turn on location only when you need it! Disable the app sounds, vibration etc from notification centre! Keeping data connection on always drains a lot of battery, so switch it on only when required! Double tap to wake phone also drains a lot battery, use power key instead! Turn off the live tile option for the apps that you don't use much! Lower the lock screen timeout, lower the brightness! Turn off the vibration of Windows keys! Try these, if it could help

    Dark theme wouldn't really affect the 620, DTTW may or may not use a lot of power.

    What are you doing when it heats up? Browsing the web? Nothing?

    Dark theme surely affects, I've kept my phone in a light theme several times, it drains more battery, even when your phone is in stand by mode!

    that doesn't even make logical sense!

    I know, but that's a fact, also while running apps in background, it drains more battery in light theme
