Lumina 650 Battery Life Issue

Windows Central Question

I purchased a Lumina 650 about a month ago and no matter how much I charge it the battery life is awful... it doesn't even last through the night.... I have enabled battery saver but I really need some simple instructions to enable the battery to last longer otherwise its going in the bin.... I am not a tech wizard and so please step by step guidance would be appreciated...

Go to Settings->System->Battery->Battery usage by app to see what might be running in the background.

The apps that you don't need updates from, set them to "Never allowed to run in the background" and for ones that you need updates from, leave it as managed by Windows.

The 650 has an OLED display so make sure that your system color is dark and not light.
