    Why is the 950's battery life so much worse when it only has a 10% smaller battery? The 950 also has a smaller screen and less power hungry CPU. You would think the two phones would be extremely similar in battery life, not the 950 getting half the talk time as the 950xl.

    Seems like there is something fishy going on with the 950.

    ...exactly. Moreover many users are quite happy with battery life, even if it's not a miracle phone for sure.

    True but given the small battery in s6+ and 950xl only performing slightly better, ms really need to start doing some battery optimization. Optimization in general. I actually noticed a slight fps lag in candy crush soda yesterday for a bit and phone was not even warm. Likely OS was doing something.

    I had similar results of not so great battery life early on. Within the last week it's been significantly better though. Not sure what's changed.

    hmm, took my 950XL off the charger at 9am, and at 6pm it's at 61%. My 930 by now would be in the 30s.

    What, no! The messaging app is poorly coded and drains a **** load of battery. Who is happy with it?

    Its not that big of a difference. There is a software bug in the messaging app, and likely others, causing massive drains. The 950 looks to have that big drain bug still, the 950XL doesn't. In either case neither of these performances are good at all. The 1520 on 8.0 would blow this away.
