    I'm using build 10536
    Where is extras I can't find it? I'm using Lumia 640, please help. Thank you in advance.
    Also, please tell me how to disable vibration of navigation bar.
    extra should be in settings. Way at the bottom. Then click on touch.

    Also the new beta skype app seems to take a whole lot of battery. I'm going to find the link to the original one and install that.

    It's not good for your battery to run it down to zero, I would avoid doing that. It certainly won't mysteriously make your battery life better afterwards.

    How's this for an indication of the source of the battery drain:

    wp_ss_20150918_0001.jpg

    edit: I've been stuck in Loading a couple of time today, and currently for the last 30 minutes. Battery drained 60% in 3 hours.

    In Loading, I am able to get into the Settings to take this screenshot. Also, you can use the search button to get to Cortana, type her to "open [app name]" and you can still use apps, however, as shown above, significant processing still going on inside the phone.

    Start (screen?) has been using 21.7% of my battery consumption over the last 24 hours?!

    Thanks for the message. The one you quoted was posted under "Ask a Question" and my question was,

    "Am I interpreting this correctly?", referring to the screenshot and the percentages.

    weird thing......yesterday my phone died because it run out of battery....after i recharge it it hold one day with usage and NOT on battery saver. :)
    so now the battery holds very good.
    Try to drain the battery completely and then recharge it to 100% like I did.....maybe it will work for you to
    You're honestly suggesting fully discharging Li-Ion battery? Never, ever do that. It doesn't improve a thing, it only deteriorates your battery.

    It wasn't in the Q&A when I found it. Nonetheless, if it was originally in the Q&A, then it will still be moved since the Q&A is a forum reserved for urgent and time pressing matters, and for guests who don't have a Windows Central account yet.

    The same here (Lumia 930). My battery was ok on 512, but now it's a disaster on 536. I lost 100% in 4 hours in normal use. I did a hard reset 3 days ago, and I didn't install too many apps. My phone is always warm and always seems to download something in the background, there is always the little arrow close to the wifi icon. I seriously don't know what's going on. And weird thing, the Windows Central app became crazy laggy on this build (unlike the other apps which run great).

    Looks very similar to the issues Im having with my battery - including the wifi icon indicating that the phone is trying to communicate/upload info almost all the time. Running a Lumia 640 LTE.

    From my experience, the L930 never did have great battery life, plus you could fry an egg on the bottom right corner!!!!

    Never, ever, run a lithium batter to zero. This will shorten it's life dramatically. The act of charging before zero also allows for 'conditioning' of the battery. Why do you think that new Li-ions come with some charge? The advice of charging for 24 hours, on a new battery, means that it is being conditioned whilst on the long charge. My daughter ALWAYS runs her android tablet right down. You would not believe how many times I've had to get my hands dirty and reflash due to boot fail.

    10536 appears to be very good, battery wise, for me. Installed on 640 (dirty / migrated) and 640XL and no issues on usage front

    Battery really does take a dive once the screen is being used on my M8, but like Mad Cabbie says, not too bad on the 640. Might have to do with firmware? I can remember this being the case on my NL928 once it got Developer preview'ed to 8.1. SOT of maybe 2 hours if I were lucky? It's not as if the M8 is really heating up or something. And in standby it seems really good.

    Anyways. Going to give it a try on my NL830 now, wonder how that device holds up. I really enjoy the build nontheless!

    Since I have installed the lastest OS on my 640 XL the battery life has certainly taken a downward turn, and I find that if I am using it for messaging via WhatsApp I have to charge the phone again during the day. So that now means the phone has two charges per day as I charge it over night usually. I also now have the phone rebooting if I am using WhatsApp continuously for say 10 minutes having a conversation. I think it is the app that causes the reboot, so I have submitted this to the developers.

    What he is really suggesting to do is to recalibrate the battery meter. Which sometimes you have to do because Lithium batteries do slowly degrade over time and the battery meter doesn't always take that into account. You really won't do any damage to the battery, because the hardware will kick in and turn off the device when the voltage does get to the minimum allowed.

    Hey guys, I don't know if someone already mention this before but I will tell you. Yesterday I was experience this batty issue either in my 920 build 10536. 3 hours after pull the charger, my battery running from 100% - 10% in 3 hours only. This is terrible.

    But I found some old ways to solve this problem. It use to work with old phone, but I tried this and it works. "Just try to put your phone to dead (0%/goodbye message) by keep using it. And then leave your dead phone without charge it for about 5-6 hours, maybe more (I don't know, I left my phone dead on night sleep). And then put it on charger BUT make it offline mode, or airplane mode so nobody can bother your phone. Don't use your phone until 100% charged and wait for more 1 hour still plugged in charger."

    That's it. My phone battery now last more longer than before. Unplugged from 2 PM and on 10 PM it still on 68%. A great battery improvement isn't it? Take a shot. Maybe this work with your phone too.

    You can't delete it to 0 like this. The phone has sophisticated protection circuitry (the battery might have, too, depending on how smart it is) to protect against damagingly low levels of charge.

    The battery drianage is crazy....... I lose about 15% when I stay on for 15 minutes and the phone gets HOT not just warm.

    Wonder if this kills the battery in the long run.

    Is Microsoft really trying to get rid of even the die hard fans by making us all sorry we stick it out this long??

    U do realize this is not finalized software right? Battery glitches and bugs are to be expected. If it's that much of a problem stay on 8.1

    Thanks for the feedback.

    I felt that my question about the Start app clocking unusually high battery use percentages, causing phone to heat up, and stuck in the "Loading..." issue was important.

    Anyway, can you answer the question? "Am I interpreting the screenshot correctly?"

    Auto update of the store can also cause battery drain. Just disable it.

    The question may be important, but it may not really be that urgent. An urgent question would be something like this: Why won't my phone won't start up? I need to call my bank ASAP.

    Unfortunately, I couldn't answer your question with certainty since I have not tried Windows 10 Mobile on my phone, yet - I'm waiting for the final build. But if the Battery use information is similar to the Battery saver app in Windows Phone 8.1, then those data are best taken as "indicators" but not as decimal-point-accurate information, since there have been instances in WP8.1 where two apps were reported to both have 90%+ battery usage, which is an arithmetic impossibility.

    The sum of your System, Display, Wi-Fi and Cellular is 100.1% (not sure, I just looked at the numbers quickly), but the 0.1% anomaly is attributed to rounding error - no big deal. It also appears logical that the display consumes most of the power, since the screen is one of the most power-consuming hardware features of a smart phone. So, you may be interpreting the information in the screenshot correctly, but I would take it with some degree of flexibility.

    I migrated from 8.1 straight. No hard reset. I am getting around 15 hrs....far better than what I got in 10166. and it's so stable that I am thinking of keeping this build as a daily driver. couple of tips 1. Reduce brightness 2. turn off NFC, Bluetooth etc when not needed.
