    My 1520 won't last 3 hours even with no usage. Last build was much better. If I can't figure out the app causing the problem soon, I'll have to go back to 8.1. Last 3 builds have worked much better than this one for me. Bummer!!!

    I know I sound like an echo but does your battery report that messaging app as having the majority of the battery usage?

    My messaging apps are BBM and WhatsApp. And it's not that bad for the battery usage. My primary battery eater is Microsoft Edge, and with continuously usage can make my Lumia 730 only life for less than 10 hours.

    Well, the 10536 was got very worst before I left it for 10549. I got drop from 92% to 32% just with a restart. Now that I am on 10549, all I can say now of course is it is better.

    "Messaging" app was draining my 1520. Is that what's killing everyone else's?

    Once your historical texts all sync, does your battery usage return to normal?
    Took 24 hours for texts to catch up. Brutal while it lasted.
    The messaging app drained 55% of battery power during the last 24 hours. This is just crazy and it doesn't look like it's stopping.

    Hi guys, can you please tell me how is battery life and heat issue if Cortana is turned off completely?
    I really miss the great feature of W10M but I only have one Lumia 620, and in 10536 my phone died in 8 hours in light-moderate use even without Cortana. That's why I had go back to WP8.1.



    Hi guys, can you recommend any good battery usage monitoring app. One that gives graphs and discharge/charge rates fairly accurately but doesn't drain the battery while doing so and has no ads. The one I had doesn't work well with wm10
    I use this one http://forums.windowscentral.com/e?l...token=MVpge_rk
    It's simplest and good one The charge/discharge rate is off by default, you can turn it on in its setting, and Ads can be removed by in-app purchase.

    Same here. It showed the stats for a day and after that it doesnt show the usage. Just the last charged and the remaining time.

    Updated yesterday 22 core apps on my 520, and suddenly the phone stopped overheating and battery draining!
    Then I checked and polished the sd card using a pc (last build seems can't checking sd by itself in case of problems!) and apps on it opens faster and doesn' crash till now

    Only main iussue forn now, sms doesn't notify on lock screen... again...

    It was work 10536, but I haven't tried 10549 yet.



    Are you guys saying that the battery saver bug is getting worse?
    In 10536 it can't turn off background apps, and now it can't let background tasks working?

    I cant say about battery. Every two or three screen taps on my lumia 920 and it freezes up for about 30 or more seconds. the screen goes hay wire. I preferred the last build on my 920. That build I could at least use and it had decent battery life for me and my phone never got hot and the it just worked better.

    I really have almost nothing that good to say about 10549 on my Lumia 1020. A couple times a day I swear at it and think about going back to 8.1, then decide to stick it out hoping updates come quickly. After all, we have to be getting close to something stable if the 950 and 950 XL will ship in the next month or so. But I don't see it. Maybe it's specific to certain devices, but on the other hand, it's just too close to release for the kinds of things I'm seeing now.

    For battery usage, I'm seeing maybe 6 to 8 hours at most. It just drains quickly no matter what. And I've yet to see anything useful from battery usage on the phone. This is what it always looks like:

    Downright terrible on my 930, along with unexplainable overheating it is the worst build I had on the battery aspect.

    Same on the Icon (929). I wish we had Task Manager/Resource Manager so that we could ID what process is exactly that is killing the batteries. Maybe after those programs get universalified.

    Battery life is same on 1520 but it does get warm . Think MS doesn't get it every build has do many issues .
    Don't know how they will release it in 2 months ..
    A lot of people said that with Windows 10....and there was still bugs. Microsoft is one of the many companies that have turned to "Let's release it on XX/XX date and if there is still issues, we'll fix it with updates"

    Forcing them to hit a deadline, instead of when the product is actually done. Microsoft USED to be like that.

    I hate this model in software, you'll see a lot of Xbox one games like this....

    Remember the last game you purchased in the store on release day for the Xbox one and when you installed it there was a 1gb of higher updates for it ? Yea, this model....

    There is an amazing app called Insider. It has shortcuts for WiFi, BT, Flight Mode, Cellular Data, a flash light, a very detailed battery usage with graphs, draining apps, etc, lockscreen images, latest windows phone specification news, and many more. Try it.

    Surprisingly not so bad and certainly not "much" worse with previous W10 builds. Better than 8.1, no, I don't think so but it's been very long time since I had 8.1 on my 830.

    Disabled Cortana, NFC, Bluetooth(if not in use), mobile data(when not in use), some privacy settings and backgrounds apps. It gets the same battery life as 8.1 (10-15 hours) if I use it lightly but if I use it normally, battery becomes really bad like only around 5 hours
