    It's not running hot when it just sits in my pocket on standby, so it must be better. I'll see this coming week. I removed all the previous builds after a couple of hours, but I'm keeping this one.

    battery life is comparable to 10149 drains very fast with internet connection or just playing around with the phone, least twice worse than 8.1

    Size seems to vary depending on phone model but expect around 400mb+

    On my 830 battery life seems to be pretty much the same on build 10166 as it was on WP8.1.

    It works fine for me in Messaging and Outlook, L1520, hard reset, no backup.

    Battery life after install/no reset was the same as previous build,
    Did a reset and restore from 166 backup, and it has improved dramatically, still tanks hard under heavy use however.

    After reset did you have any missing settings, trouble downloading language and speech packs or any other bugs not present before hard reset? I have had all these problems in previous builds so am reluctant to do a hard reset even though i know it can improve build performance

    Battery life is realistic. Its not bad. My phone lasts about 11 hours on medium use before the next charge I use an 830 not better than 8.1 but its good. Also, I suggest giving your phone tine to settle into the new os. Battery life always improves after like two to three days.

    I'm a bit skeptical about huge improved performance. Some of the apps I can't install and phone functionality is reduced. Still, the build is kinda slick... when it works.., and W10 has character and direction ... So thumbs up...

    This pretty much sums it up. The battery seemed to just drain in build 10149. Now it lasts almost the whole day with moderate use. If I play any games, like Candy Crush, it does seem to drain a lot more.

    It could still be better. In 8.1, the battery lasted all day and into the next day with moderate use. I won't expect that of W10 Mobile until it's RTM or a little afterward.

    Dealing with some drain here and I don't think it's correctly saying battery time correctly. In about a 1/2 hour it charged (QI not USB) from 62% to 100%, this normally would an hour or more over wireless charging.

    Not even close to 8.1 for me on my Nokia ICON..

    Much better on my 1520. Battery usage and the battery settings app are the only things that seem better on this build.

    Good, not great. Been using it for about 22 hours now. After I took it off the charger this a.m., it's now down to 29%. I would guess with the usage I've had today I'd expect it to be 45-50%. Can't compare with previous builds as this is my first install.

    Significantly better on my M8 than the previous 10149 build. Finally I'm starting to feel battery life is on par with 8.1. Although, judging by posts, I might be in the minority here.
