    battery is not so bad for me now. only thing that doesn't work is hey-cortana (but that never functioned very well on 8.1, so no great loss). think I'm sticking with 10

    To edit Cortana settings, press the Search button (or launch the app) hit the burger in the upper left.

    Select Notebook, from there settings. TAP IT ONCE, it take s a while to load, but then you can set the settings to use above lockscreen. Still doesn't work with the screen off though.

    For those with battery issues do the following:

    Turn on Battery Saver, by default it will block all chatter. Go into Battery Saver from All Settings > System > Battery Saver
    Tap on Battery Saver Settings at the bottom
    Tap Add an App, add apps one at a time to find out which one drains your phone, uninstall and re-install said app.

    Additionally there is a lot of syncing going on. You might want to turn off OneDrive uploads, and theme syncing for the time being. Adjust your sync schedule in the outlook app for you e-mails. One other thing is to check the feedback/diagnostic sending. It could be sending a bunch of telementry data back to MS for diag (this is why resetting after upgrading is bad, it all gets lost..... unless your phone is like really bricked)

    Finally go to store and update all the apps possible. I have battery drain but its a work phone so there is a crap ton of stuff I do on it daily. It is however enough to notice, according to Battery Saver 89% of usage is in my screen.... I think turning off auto brightness might help as well but haven't confirmed it.

    Side Note: My MS Surface Arc BT mouse works like a charm, however I learned that the soft navigation keys are necessary, there is no way to go back or home or search without them. The capacitive keys are not accessible via the mouse....

    Aa far as I know, "Hey, Cortana" has not been turned on yet in Windows 10 Mobile.

    I cant say how the Band will work but, on my Pebble, with the Pebble notifications App, the newest build is WORLDS better than 512 was.... there was times on 512, I would hear my phone go off but, never see a notification for it. On the newest build so far 100% of the time I have heard my phone notification go off, I can look at my watch and see what it was about...

    and isn't that what it is all about ? (having a smart watch)

    Aa far as I know, "Hey, Cortana" has not been turned on yet in Windows 10 Mobile.
    Where is the settings for it ? If you go into "Background apps" (Settings>Privacy>background apps) It's listed there as a background app but, I cant figure out where the settings are for it.... I looked in it's notebook, and in settings, I don't see it anywhere...

    I even tried Cortana "Please open Hey Cortana" and it she/it just opens a random app, If I try it 3 times, I she/it will open a different app each time...

    There is no setting that I am aware of for the "Hey, Cortana" feature in W10M. It has not been made available in any of the preview builds. I am fairly certain that early on, it was announced that it would come, but not available yet.

    The very latest build...battery life is still miserable for me, even with turning off a lot of things...Bluetooth in the car (for reading texts) is still iffy...the build in reader usually beats Cortana to the punch except on group messages, where Cortana wins every time...I can't say I'd go back to 8.1 until this is fixed because I really like a lot of Windows 10 on the phone...a lot...

    If someone could also share its performance with the Microsoft band, it would be greatly appreciated. Prior builds just didnt get my textx msgs to my band all that reliably.
    The Band performance is still wonky. Cortana doesn't work via the Band...I usually get my notifications on my band but they tend to duplicate when I leave my phone and then come back to it...Bluetooth will just "stop" now and then I either need to reboot phone or Band or both.

    Day one of running on the correct build version. And right now battery life has never been this bad. Took my phone off the charger at about 8am, a couple hours later and I am at 56% battery life. And that is with the phone sitting in my pocket and minimal use. Just unacceptable at this point.
    I have to wholeheartedly agree with you...battery life on the ICON with just so bad on Windows 10. Yet I struggle to go back to 8.1 because I like Outlook, I like the new Office apps, I like the settings, notifications, new Skype Messaging, Groove Music...so hard to go back...

    Yes, check my message a few posts up.
    Download the app at Messaging Skype beta for Windows 10 Mobile updated with stability improvements (Updated) | Windows Central and it will bring it back.

    Look up Microsoft messaging in the store. It took me a while to find it after the last build because it up and vanished from the start screen and my collection.

    I take back the nice things I had said about battery life. I just hadn't been "off the leash" for too long. was this evening and it was pretty gruesome. might be enough to send me back to 8.1

    btw has anyone got the read-me-my-texts-in-driving-mode working on the new build? I can't figure out how to configure it. vaguely remember someone saying it requires an extra step compared to 8.1

    For those with battery issues try to unpin everything on your start screen. I had issues doing this but once I only had a list I soft reset and waited a bit before I re did my start but that seemed to help my battery. I think it was a rouge live tile...

    Would you mind posting a screenshot of your Cortana settings? If Microsoft finally turned the feature on in W10M, I have no "Hey Cortana" setting that I can find.

    Is the messaging reliable now? Used to not get notifications of incoming texts.

    for me it is, yes. but it does not read emails aloud in Driving Mode like 8.1 would.

    that + battery drain may turn me back to 8.1 ... again.

    Can one of you on 10536 send me the values for the keys under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\Platform\DeviceTargetingInfo? The easiest way to do this would be to install this and send a screenshot. If you have no idea what I am talking about, please ignore.

    battery drain seems WAY worse when I am not on wifi. phone heats up quite a bit. not sure whether is related to signal strength

    So I'm still on build 10010512, for whatever reason nothing will download. I have 50 apps all in pending status and the two other OS updates also won't download. Am I stuck to doing a system reset and starting all over again?
    Thanks.

    So I guess it runs like trash on this phone too? I guess I'll stick with 8.1.
