    Anyone noticing excessive battery drain on their new 950?

    When I'm using the phone it will drop 10% in a matter of 5-10 mins.

    Already turned off all background processes and disabled glance.

    Anyone else? Ideas to fix?

    Give it a couple days to a week. It should settle in and give you realistic battery life.

    Yes, it'll settle down after a few days. I got mine two days ago and the first day the battery seemed to drain and the phone was very warm. Now it's great.

    I'm not excessively using it. In fact this morning I took it off the charger at 6:30AM at 100%. All I have done today is glance at it a few times and it's 89%. So I've lost 11% in an hour not doing anything.

    For comparison, my Lumia 1520 with that same usage and span of time would only drop maybe 3-4%

    Do you have Hello turned on? If so disable it. It's badly flawed right now and is always scanning for your face

    That's been my experience on every smartphone I have owned.

    Dunno... Still think something strange is going on as all the reviews I read said they were getting full day battery. I made it until 3:00PM after taking off charger at 6:30AM. Only glanced at the phone a few times and made 1 five minute call.

    What am I doing wrong?

    Don't charge wirelessly. Rebooted when I let the battery die earlier

    The new battery will take some time to settle in but you can help it along. Disable NFC (tap to share and tap to bay are on by default) as this is a big battery drain. Also configure battery saver. You can also make sure other things you don't need are turned off (Bluetooth etc).

    Hey, I thought we like Windows Phone because we don't have to fiddle with it to get acceptable battery life and performance.

    Well, I posted that comment tongue-in-cheek. My first WP was an unlocked Lumia 710, which of course ran WP7. I've used a WP most of the time since then, although usually not as a primary device.

    In my experience, WP7 was fast, smooth, and stable, although quite light in features and capabilities. Since WP8, the OS has required a great deal of tweaking and fiddling. Soft or hard resets are required all too often. This is why I've never understood the view I stated above.

    I don't really have any issues tweaking to get the best battery life.

    Not that this helps exactly, but I've been running mine exactly how it came out of the box and haven't had battery issues with whatever the default settings are. When I first got the phone I noticed the bottom right side of it was hot when I got home, after the phone was just in my pocket. Something must have been turning on in my pocket but I don't know what it is.

    Did you choose "as items arrive" in your email sync settings? I had my L930 with huge battery drains and did a couple of times a Factory Reset hoping that would help. The last time (I still had huge battery drains) I changed "as items arrive" to "every 15 minutes" after another Factory reset. My battery drain was gone, but don't know if the Factory reset did it or the mail sync settings. My L930 runs build 10568.11 insider preview...
