    My standby time in Mexico (roaming off) was great, and while using the phone (games, camera, etc.) I noticed it was much better.
    Are you using a new or old SIM card?

    I have 3 devices running WP10: L1520, HTC M8 & L950. By far, L950 is the buggiest. It is slow & crash prone. It gets hot all the time. The battery life is awful (it lasts only 5 hours/charge). For me it is almost unusable. My device already runs the latest firmware. Already did hard reset twice and installed fresh.

    Out of desperation, I decided to upgrade to Insider .63 this morning. Suddenly, it feels good. Battery life is much much better. Device also feels more robust. And the best part, it no longer feels hot. I expect the battery life to last at least twice of before.

    I have the same issues in the UK with an unlocked L950 with Three. If I turn off the 3G/4G data and wifi then I get the kind of battery life I expected. A few unoptimised apps cause higher battery drain, but overall the problem for me is definitely the data connection.

    I have had my phone for nearly a month now.

    My current battery life is about 30hrs on a full charge (still running .29)

    - a few calls each day - its used for business
    - web browsing in the morning for 30 minutes or so with sporadic browsing daily.
    - hourly checks of Tweetium
    - about 2hrs of music a day
    - about 2hrs of podcasts per day
    - regular email checks through the day
    - whatsapp and sms messaging occassionally through the day.
    - occassional messing arounf with the phone (i like it so much I cant put it down yet!)

    There are about 7-8 apps that I allow background processes for.

    I would be so pissed. That's unacceptable. Hopefully .63 works out for you!

    The 950's shouldn't have been reviewed before .63.

    AT&T L950 on .63 (fresh install) still sucking power like a drunk in a liquor store.

    I've said this in multiple threads and I keep hitting MS feedback with it but my L950 seems to keep a nearly constant flow of data back and forth to the cellular network even though I'm on WiFi. The little data arrow above the cell signal bars is on almost continually and since I've seen an increase in data usage without changing my habits, I suspect this is a major cause of my battery woes. I was hopeful that the firmware would fix this but it appears unlikely.

    This does not happen on my L640 on AT&T with .63 (also a fresh install) and it has stellar battery life.

    Anyone else notice this issue??

    How often do you sync you emails? I have mine set to every hr, but think the default is 'based on usage'.

    On the previous build, my Airplane Mode Lumia 820 that I use solely as a media player would die in less than two days without use. On 8.1 and earlier builds of WM10, it would last a week in airplane mode without use. The battery drain seems to be back to normal in standby mode with .63

    Agree. It's OK for me as I'm an experience & loyal user. However, several friends already dumped theirs and back to iOS/Android. Spending money which equals to an iPhone 6S/Note 5 for such a beta device is unacceptable. It's ironic that Microsoft ran the 'Beta Test' Ads several years ago.

    If you spent $700 + tax on your 950, I would return it. It should only be $549.

    This is the first time I've seen this. I've just removed my Samsung Evo 32 to see if there's any improvement.

    EDIT: Sent and received two text messages since I posted and my phone went from 91% to 89%. The phone lost the first 8% in 1-hour with no use.

    I'm losing hope that MS will ever fix this.

    In case you've got a faulty unit there's nothing MS can fix with updates, YOU have to return it.

    After updating L950 to a .63 my battery became actually worse, for two days it was kinda good, specially on stand-by, did soft-reset and now it is like you said, percents just droping even without doing anything or anything in background.
    Thinking on doing Firmware and OS reset.

    I've found that curtailing the use of Telegram Messenger on my phone has boosted battery life dramatically. That app drains like nothing else, giving me at least 12 extra hours of battery life.
