    Lumia 640 dual sim, on .29 for 3 days now, satisfied about battery use, same as .11. Never did a reset after updating from 8.1. No special battery saving measures, tap to wake is on. I charge via Qi every night during Quiet hours, so if there is a problem there I won't notice. Usually I have 50% left after a day of normal use.

    No problems on 930 with .29. Battery holds up better than .11. I do not have double tap to wake on.

    I love the theory of WP or W10M whatever you like to call it, but MS never delivered. More and more I am thinking going back to iPhone. Upgrading my WP device to W10M was a huge mistake too. Highly NOT recommended due to being slower, having battery issues, and overall being a broken experience.

    I wonder how people who bought 950/XL really feel about their purchase. Not what they say to their friends in order to avoid looking stupid. At this rate, W10M will not be ready before Summer 2016.

    Interesting, I have had the opposite experience. I have a Lumia 925 and by battery life has improved.

    My Lumia 930 drains in no time. Had problem for a while (even first build drained fast but now even faster) and made complete reset of my phone yesterday and see no improvement. Windows Mobile 10 is really testing my comittement (been a happy long time user) but I will wait some more. Just seriously frustrating that I can't keep my phone for a day if I don't recharge.

    Please Microsoft, let Windows Mobile 10 be the last overhaul. I seriously hate this process (Windows Mobile 8 was the same).

    And yeah, my phone end active calls if I just happen to touch it. Awesomse ... sigh.

    I don't think I saw anyone mention this as causing an issue, but I was having severe battery drain from the last build before this minor update (although not experiencing any issue with .29 on my 1020). However, I spent several days trying to find the battery drain and finally realized there was something always connecting to my cellular data connection (if I turned off my data connection my drain would go away). I hated not having it on so I tried one by one eliminating stuff that I could think of causing it.
    Finally stumbled onto the Messaging + Skype app, more specifically the Skype portion of it. I tried disabling Skype and my battery drain improved drastically, i.e. no longer 80% battery gone from waking up to about an hour into work (6am - 9am) but more along the lines of 10%. I haven't really monitored too closely since disabling Skype and being much happier with my battery life. I will start monitoring again, but disabling Skype in messaging worked like a charm for me.

    Update:
    Monitored my phone battery closely yesterday through this morning on my 1020 (on the .29 build). Charged it to 100% and took it off the charger at 12:30pm. At 6:30am this morning my phone battery was at 61%. So that's 18 hours with minimal to moderate usage (a few phone calls, hundreds of texts, and a few web pages, with email syncing every hour, and Cortana reminders running) for 39% of battery used. So approximately 2.16% drain per hour. Very happy with that :)

    I'm having issues a plenty on this build.

    My Lumia 930 was just sitting on my desk and in just over an hour it died from over 30% doing nothing.

    I ran a test on two new Lumia 640's, one running 8.1 and the other the latest build of 10. The settings on both were the same. I played a video on both for 3 hours and 45 minutes. The 8.1 had 72% remaining and the 10 had 69% remaining, so very little difference.

    How did you disable skype from messaging+skype? This app is culprit for my lumia 930 battery drain.

    Hi all,

    After three days of upgrading to 10586.29 the battery drain in my lumia 1020 has reduced from 30-40% per hour to 7-8% per hour. (i have disabled most of the apps running in background, also the usage is normal (minimal).)

    If you open up the messaging app, use the 3 dots on the lower right corner and go to -> Skype settings. From there there's a button (just text, but acts like a button) that says Sign out. It will prompt you, "Are you sure?" just click Sign out again and Skype will now be disabled within the Messaging + Skype app (note it takes about half a minute before it actually signs you out, just wait until the screen changes before doing anything else).

    Lumia 735. Just upgraded normally from 10586.11 to 10586.29. Took about an hour for everything to complete. No issues with battery drain, battery might be even better. Though I have the Skype part of Messaging turned off and Cortana off as well.

    I updated my 1520 to WM10 10586.29 and now when my battery gets to 70% To 75% it will drain down do 2% in an hour. I have location, Hey Cortana and most background apps turned off and still get the drain. Any Ideas? Am i stuck till a fix is released?
    Also I just noticed while charging it takes forever, but when it get's to 40% it goes up to 100% in less than 10 min.

    Got the same problem on my 925. When i first installed the preview from 8.1 I had overall terrible performance and battery drain, then did a factory reset. All issues improved, and 10 ran great, that was about a week ago. Today however I'm back to the same old quick-drain problems, and charging happens real slow too (<10%/hr). Had my phone in my lap when driving today and noticed it was running pretty hot while locked/asleep. drained 30% in just over an hour.
    I'm probably gonna just have to keep doing resets until the next build comes

    Update: I think I have traced the issue to the Groove music app, If I play music with either line out or Bluetooth it will play fine but if I pause music to do another task or disconnect from the stereo and then when I come back and try to play from where I left off or choose another song the app will stall out with "loading' and instantly drain my battery to 0, no matter what % charge I am at.

    If I completely back out of the app or even better restart my phone before trying to play any more music it works fine until I repeat the above process.

    I have a 930 on build 10.586.29... and battery drain faster when i update from .11. When in check the battery report for 24hrs, it says the screen had used 86% of my battery even if i havent used my phone for some hour. I had to carry a battery pack with me all time which is frustrating.

    My 930 has been fine on the latest build but from Wednesday onwards for some reason the battery is draining at 15-20%/hr with little to no use and background apps disabled, barely get through half a day before the battery is dying, not sure if its a hardware or software issue
