    Same here. I've only had the phone for a week but I feel like I should exchange it for another 950...it shouldn't be draining THAT much when the phone is in use. I've had my 920 for 3-4 years now and battery drain was horrible. It never got better. Seeing the small percentage of other 950/950XL owners with 1% of in-use drainage every 30-60 minutes makes me frustrated!
    I'm calling BS on those who claim 1% an hour in use. With the processor, display and connectivity, there's just no way. I'd think that 5-10% would be more along the lines of acceptable.

    My 950 only drains 1-2% overnight but will easily lose 25% in less than 30-minutes on WiFi just reading the news or my tech blogs. It's even worse if I use Edge, ugh.

    Yeah, there is no way the phone only drains 1 % an hour, while in use... You'd get a hundred hours out of the phone, if that was true, and that's simply not possible with todays battery technology. Not even while the phone is idle.

    I should've stated I was paraphrasing with those numbers. I know its useless to compare different phones/OS, but my boyfriend has a 6plus and he was able to read news for 30 minutes and lose only 1-2%! Whereas with my 920 and 950, I'd be down 10-15%. Something isnt right.

    I really hope that the next big update will fix this drain though...at the same time I'm a bit weary because my 920's battery life never got any better.

    I just got my 950 yesterday and I'm going to give it about a week or so before judging battery life.

    I disabled Glance, Hey Cortana and also the Cortana Unlock Search button thing because all these are different variables that could affect battery life.

    Coming from 4 years of Android, and heavy root and Cyanogenmod type of user, there was this concept of battery calibration, where you would have to let the phone charge/discharge completely once or twice for the phone to accurately report battery life. Android has special apps to guide this procedure. It was common to perform this whenever a new ROM (not an incremental update) is flashed on the phone.

    I am not sure if this concept is applicable to Windows Phone or perhaps they do this calibration in the factory or maybe it's bogus, but it's been discussed on the Android side of the world.
