    I'd like to see these tests again in a month or two after a firmware/OS updates:
    Microsoft Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL battery life - GSMArena blog

    Subjectively, I would say my Lumia 950 unlocked is better than their tests but two things make a huge difference for me: Managing the screen brightness regularly (auto brightness tends not to stick) and resetting as soon as I lose 5GHz WiFi. For some reason battery life plummets after the 5GHz connection disappears.

    Really surprised to see a huge difference between these 950 models.. Anyone else know of any battery tests or performance benchmarks?

    That is hugely disappointing. My 950 just arrived today so I'll give it a week and see what kind of real world results I get. I'll be sad if I can't get a full day out of it.

    My 950's battery is very poor. Just sitting on a table + some photos + a few calls -> some 15 hours. Worst I've ever seen.

    Unacceptable. I was shocked by 1020's poor battery after a Sony, but this one's even worse. It goes back if there's no update soon.

    Poor battery life with my 1020 was also a big problem for me. If I had WhatsApp installed, forget about it. Battery would last a few hours at most. Interestingly, when I updated to WM10 and did not restore from a backup, battery life was drastically improved. A couple of weeks later and I am on the 950, which is about the same as the "improved" 1020. Did you restore from a backup?

    Tried first backup and then fresh install. No difference.
