    My company uses windows phones due to being able to lock them down better than other OSs. They just upgraded my phone from the HTC one m8 windows edition to the lumia 950. Personally, I prefer the HTC. Too bad windows 10 wasn't on it.

    I experience more standby drain than I did with my HTC. It will lose 8 to 10 percent over night. My HTC would lose maybe 1 or 2 percent. Is that normal?

    I always charge my phones overnight so I'm not sure. I do now, when I owned a 950, it didn't have the greatest battery life but was adequate to get me through the day.

    Most of users suffering from the faster battery drain in w10m as compared to win 8.1m.

    So, keep your mobile update at time.

    1. Make sure you're in the latest version. Go to Settings > Update & Security > Updates > Check for Updates
    The latest build as of this post is 14393.1066 but come April 25 you should receive the Creators Update build 15063

    2. Check your Privacy settings
    Settings > Privacy > Feedback & Diagnostics > Windows should ask for my feedback > Never and Diagnostic and usage data > Basic

    3. Check background settings
    Settings > Privacy > Background apps > Turn off any app that you do not need to run in the background.
    Make sure to keep Messaging, Mail & Calendar, Alarms & Clock on otherwise you won't receive notifications from them.

    4. Go to Settings > System > Display > make brightness appropriate to your preference.

    5. Make sure battery saver is turned on

    I charge my 950 before I go to sleep each evening. When I get up in the late morning its usually around 92%, give or take a few percent. I'm no expert but that sounds similar to my experience.

    .. If my phone is fully charged, I'll toggle off to offline, ie no data nor wifi when I go to bed. Doesn't lose much charge at all

    Tempted to do the same(toggle off), but afraid I'll miss some vital communication(as unlikely as that is).

    I turn off all except cell data. Even location is disabled, if the phone is not totally locked down. Lasts for most of the day. I charge it overnight. I do have a battery bank and extra cables with me just in case.

    Definitely no expert but it seems like excessive drain. Although I am new to the platform.
