    I am seeing the same thing. Can easily get the better part of two days with mine. Aside from the indexing etc.. that Windows does after an upgrade I think that bad apps are the culprit for most folks. I have all the radios, location and Windows Hello enabled myself. I don't use Whats App or Skype or FB messaging though.

    I could have reached 2 full days of light use but had to charge the phone before heading out. :)

    What app is that battery graph from?

    I just joined the slow track and saw improved battery life from 71. Haven't noticed any other changes. Seems good to me.

    That's fantastic. My overall discharge rate is 5.9% compared with your 4.4%. However, I have Bluetooth on and connected to the Band 2. I also don't have a solid 4G LTE signal like you seem to have (2-3 bars, fluctuating often).

    I've noticed when I'm in the office where we have cellular nodes, I get a solid 4G LTE signal that is maxed most of the time. I get MUCH better battery life. As soon as I'm home with my poor cell signal and dual band routers that cause loss of 5GHz wifi, my battery is gone in 6 hours.

    Outside this, WhatsApp and Messaging + Skype are still massive battery vampires. I've just started using WhatsApp on the web whenever I can.

    Compare this with my work iPhone 5S - well, there is no comparison. Same locations, similar use and the battery is still at 60%+ by the end of the day.

    These observations suggest the cell signal strength strongly affects battery life, which is logical of course. However, weak signals, Bluetooth interference/issues and the 5GHz WiFi add up to hose the battery. Throw in a battery vampire app and the phone is dead in 6h. Not sure there's much more we can do on our end.

    Really bad in my 950. Once installed, the warning "the sim card information has changed" began to appear. Then, multiple random reboots started to appear also microsd card errors when tried to transfer 21Gb of music through the usb c cable. But not all was bad, I noticed a improved battery life. Sadly, I had to return to .21 build. The .21 build works really fine. No random reboots, no warnings messages and no more errors when I transfer data to the microsd card.

    Since the update to the latest OS I have been averaging at least one type of lockup and forced reboot once a day for something. Hasn't been the same thing for the most part. One day it wouldn't hang up a phone call, one day it wouldn't answer a phone call and just because I remember it happening yesterday it locked on Bluetooth when I needed it to get off of Bluetooth and it wouldn't so I had to reboot it. My battery life went to hell when I first updated it but once going into the individual apps to make sure they weren't all running in the background, which they were, my battery became extremely frugal and I had more battery at the end of the day then ever before. I'm not sure if the updated OS had turned everything on or not. I'm hoping that this daily driver gets a little better soon with a fix.

    That's not a solution. That's a work around and should not be the answer to a new flagship device... Seriously, can you imagine Microsoft telling people "Every time we push an update, make sure to start fresh and not use a back up"

    W10 mobile team has been a disaster. I manage large IT projects and live by the schedule- google PMP...i would been fired.

    I can't show off my 950xl to iOS and Android potential converts bc the software on this flagship is half baked crap.
    Spent $650 on this. 1.7% is surely getting smaller

    Are you running .71 or .29? My 950xl was discharging very quickly, 1 minute after unplugged it drain 1% without any use. I'm tempted to using WDRT back to .29.

    I'm back to .29 as .71 yielded 4 hours battery life most

    When the phone comes with an insider build right out of the box, with no warning on it, this is no longer a valid point.

    Mine has been running almost perfectly since .71 and I'm also on an AT&T branded Lumia 950. With .63 I had random app crashes and reboots at least 4 or 5 times a day, but since .71 I think Messaging has crashed once and the phone hasn't rebooted at all. My battery life is also much better. After a day of heavy use and leaving the screen on for 3 hours while driving yesterday, I have around 27% when I got home at midnight (fully charged from 11am)

    A backup is merely a list of modified system settings and downloaded apps saved to the cloud. Restoring a backup doesn't impact how the OS operates at all.

    Must be a 950 issue. Three Insider fast updates in a row on my 920 without so much as a soft reset required. No complaint whatsoever.

    Just go back to .29 guys it's way better. It's a shame that it takes long to go from .0 to .29 (especially with the horrible performance at first)

    Definitely agree with you but these builds are supposed to address bugs, not add features and mess with code. These are the builds that they will consider for public release when Windows 10 Mobile rolls out.. So I Have higher standards. If it was a Redstone preview, I would shut my mouth and deal with it ahahaha.

    BTW what are your phone specs, Build, Firmware, locked/ unlocked? saw the awesome battery life you are getting. Do you use whatsapp or Facebook messenger?
