    Have you switched off skype in messaging app?
    Tried, just like Captpt but to no avail. Usage remains stubbornly high. Battery is going down 3-4% an hour when I have only 2 apps with background tasks enabled (Cortana and MSN News).

    What is interesting is that it stays closer to 2% (still terrible for stand by) when I restart my phone and then spikes up to 3-4% when I open the messaging app. Getting less than half a day out of moderate usage so not very happy. Can't believe that we are somehow one or two builds away from actual release.

    I have exactly this problem with my 1520 and it is still on WP8.1 so I doubt the problem is W10M. My phone now approaching 2 yrs.

    I switched back to 8.1 and the problem is now gone. Maybe not now my phone did the same thing while using the camera today.

    May just be time for a new phone.

    It could well be that the battery is knackered. They only last a couple of years.

    disagree... on my SP3 I would get MINIMUM 6-7 hours heavy usage, now with win 10 installed, lucky if I get 4hrs!!

    My beloved 1520 finally died, so I am on a $30.00 640 until something good comes out.
