    Ever since I updated my software, two-three weeks ago perhaps, my 950 xl cannot stay on for more than five hours! Wth
    It charges extremely slow, as well. My phone does not conserve the battery when the screen is off. This version really sucks. My phone glitches often, reboots randomly, freezes, and overheats. This did not happen on my phone with the previous version. How do I roll back?

    A few things you can try out:
    • Check settings >system > battery > which apps are using the most energy? Check this carefully
    • Again, in battery section, which apps can run in the background? Can you disable those you don't need? Keep messaging enabled to run in background. This section is important as after updates some toggles change
    • In battery section, you can also set up battery saver to kick in when the battery reaches a certain percentage. I keep mine on 100% so it's always on battery saver mode
    • In mail app, how often do you have mails to sync? Generally the longer the time period, the less the battery usage
    • What about brightness settings? Is it on high or auto? Auto is better than a fixed setting
    • If you finds that messaging app uses a lot of battery, this could be because it's linked with skype. Go to messaging app, settings and unlink skype
    • In photos app, do you have auto upload of photos enabled? If yes, try to not upload high res photos and videos unless you are charging the phone and on wifi
    • When you use some apps that are not data heavy like whatsapp or mail, you can use a lower network speed like 2G. It's what I do usually. I only use LTE when I have to use 6tag
    • If you're using edge for basic browsing, you could try using UC browser. Not only does it use less data but you can also disable images which means you save even more on data. The less data your phone has to receive, the less the energy used
    • In settings > privacy - check each of those settings to see which apps can use what. For example I can't understand why Word would need to access location info so I disabled that. There might be apps using services that they are not meant to use
    • Finally, keep wifi/cellular off when you don't need to have them on. The toggles in action centre are pretty fast so it doesn't take much time in switching internet on/off
    • Disable auto update of apps, you only update when you are ready and not when you are in need of critical things



    Hope this helps you

    U can't roll back to 8.1 with a windows 10 device. I would try a hard reset. Make sure u turn off things you don't need like VPN, WiFi sense, NFC , Bluetooth.

    Thanks for the tips. I've tried most already. It still doesn't do so well. I'm hoping it's not a hardware issue. I've never experienced this until now

    My 950xl's run this OS .318 release really well with battery going well in to second day.

    I would advise a hard reset. Failing that, WDRT will return you to 10586.107. Yuck! .107 is terrible compared to .318.
