    Welcome to Windows Central.

    The battery life indicated in the Battery Saver app is just an estimate designed to give the user just an idea on how the apps that are currently allowed to run in the background affect battery life. These are not exact values. What really matters is how long the phone lasts with actual use.

    How long does your phone last before you need to recharge it (based on actual time, not the estimates of Battery Saver)?

    The App is also "learning" how you use your phone and bases the estimate in part on your recent history of power consumption...

    In fact the app is constantly learning your usage patterns and trying to optimize its algorithms. Doesn't ever seem to get mine right though, maybe my usage is just too varied.

    Thanks for your valuable reply.

    In a moderate use my phone last more den a day before but it last only 18 to 20 hours from few days. I really don't know what's wrong?

    I was pretty impressed before about battery life but now something wrong.

    If you go to Settings > battery saver > usage... You will see what has been using battery. Does anything look like it took a lot of battery? It shows your active (IN) use and background use... It also states under the App title if it is allowed to operate in the background. If something is being allowed in background and the background level is high - that is your power thief. Stop background use for that App.

    I'm pretty sure that there are apps that you can shut off the background tasks and it'll still push notifications. Not sure how it works, but it's an interesting tidbit nonetheless I suppose...

    Another issue I faced, this is heating issue.. When I use heavy apps like Instagram, Facebook etc on 3G.. after 5-10 minutes the phones back side is getting heated. I bought this phone on December and that time was winter, so I didn't face any heating issue. Now summer starts in India and I face this problem too..

    My battery lasted for 15-17 hours on a single charge..but now it never gives above 10 hours.. My usage patterns have not changed..
    Is it because I installed windows 10's preview, and then reinstalled my phone software at Nokia care?
    Do we get extended batteries?
