    I am curious to see what is the latest information on our long-lasting "battery drain" with our 950XLs. I am aware that this drain is a Win10 Mobile OS issue and not necessarily due to a specific phone model.

    I am currently running the OS Build: 15014.1000. I am still getting anywhere from a 5% drain per hour to a 10% drain per hour when I am just listening to music or checking email. More demanding stuff, such as watching a movie, will make that % drain creep up north of 15%. Now mind you, I do not have many, if any, background tasks. NFC is disabled. Screen brightness is not 100%.

    What is your battery drain looking like after the various OS updates for Win10 Mobile on your Lumia 950XL? I am curious to see if my experience is in the norm or unusual.

    My lumia last me about a day and a ½ . I'm always carrying my 9000mah Microsoft battery pack with me just incase, it comes in handy and chargers phones so quickly.

    2 Things that help my battery a lot.
    Removing Facebook apps and removing all 3rd party Battery apps (the one that tells you how much drain, etc)
    I have NFC, Hey Cortana, Iris Hello, background task all running.
    Unpluged from charger 8AM, at 8PM it still have 45-50% battery life.
    Before it won't even make it to 6PM (5% then shutdown).

    Also remove/stop notifications running in background these will drain your battery pretty quickly.

    I can't remember the last time my battery drained inexplicably the way OP is experiencing. But a few months ago I had the battery itself replaced due to damage. Try this out; turn the phone off, and take the battery out. If it has a bulge, take it to your service center.

    I have a average life time of 15h, with normal use I would say. Messenger regularly, something like 1hour of game 2D game, 2-3h internet browsing).
    L1520 was far better with same usage, but well, it was wp8.
