    I have a 950xl. I was having decent, but no great battery life on .29. On .63, it has been excellent. I am using the glance screen, though I've turned off Hey Cortana . Prior to .63, I was losing a great deal of power even on standby. With .63, I can make it through a full day of work (I have 3 email accounts checking, including an exchange account that I have set to retrieve as they arrive, the most power hungry setting). Today, I tracked my ride to work with Runtastic (uses GPS) and used very little battery.

    So yes, my battery life has been far better with .63. I liked my 950xl before, and I am extremely satisfied with it now. Box, Dropbox and OneDrive all play very nice with office, including attaching files to email. Continuum has actually proven more useful than I expected, though running it over a wireless display adapter does burn the battery pretty quickly. The only other app that really eats battery for me is the Edge Browser. Web browsing seems to use batter faster than even using Netflix (an hour of Netflix costs me 10-13% battery).
    Just asking.. Are you on the latest firmware ?

    My 1020 is running FANTASTIC battery life on it.

    I think I may have found the culprit of my Lumia 640 battery drain: The 64 GB SanDisk Ultra SD card.

    I took out the SD card, and now I have only lost 2% battery in 2 hours, much more like what it was in WP 8.1.

    So, try a new SD card, or reformat this one in the phone? Why would the SD card cause battery drain in WM10, but not WP 8.1?
    Encryption maybe or formatting issue perhaps? When you updated, did you wipe reload? If not, I would do that and also do the same on the SD and see what happens

    Slighty off topic: What about ,,phone" and ,,alarm" in background, what would happen if i disable them.. To bad i can't filter 3rd party apps only.
    You probably will not have the phone "app" ring when someone calls you and alarm will not work either UNLESS you have it pulled up on the screen.

    I learned that the hard way when I disabled Messaging from running in the background and couldn't figure out why I was not getting notification when people message me and I would go check and there would be 40+ messages LOL

    Yes, I chose to reinstall applications from scratch, but didn't wipe the SD card. I am currently running well with a reformatted 16 GB SD card - no excessive battery drain. I will eventually try to reformat the offending 64 GB card as well, and see if that fixes the problem.

    I'm getting the worst battery life out of a L1320 I ever had. Already had these problems with other builds, sure, but never on this level.
    In normal usage, the L1320 last for 36 hours or more. Now I'm lucky if it survive my work time until I get home at night. Had to go to other city on monday, and the 83% battery survived for 25 minutes on Waze.

    Felt like I was back in the 80's, had to stop to ask for directions.
    Hahahahaha, it made remember a local joke here in Mexico, something like if you have no GPS, you need to make use of "the other GPS" in which GPS stands for "Gey, Pregntale al Seor" and the translation would be "Dude, Ask the Mr." like we used to do when no GPS existed.

    I'd suggest you hard reset the phone. I upgraded my 640 a couple of weeks ago (.36) and while the battery life is not stellar, I definitely get more than 10 hours out of it. If you get only 10 hours there's something other than simply W10M going on.

    The strange thing for my Lumia 640 is that it battery stats state that the screen used 60% of battery, However, the screen was off all day, except for checking a couple of texts. Glance screen is set to 30 sec. timeout. Does the screen consume power even in standby?
    Double tap to wake feature use batery even if the screen is off. Disable it to see id there is any change

    Waze is notorious for being a battery hog. Read the reviews and since google owns it, they will NEVER fix/update it. You cannot use the waze to gauge battery performance.

    Wave on android sucks the battery extremely quickly as well, even the most up to date version if the app, awful app.

    This build coupled with the recent firmware upgrade on the 950 XL has me getting 2 days of battery life on light-med use. This is the same battery i got on the 1520 while on 8.0. My discharge rate is also now down to 2.5% which matches my 1520 on 8.0

    Greatly improved on Lumia 1020. I now have the same battery life as 8.1.
    The only problem i have is with Skype Video wich not only does not recognize the camera, but it also hangs it. So if i open Skype Video i have to reboot the phone to make the camera work again.-

    Yes with .63 battery life on my 1520 seems at par with 8.1.

    920, same issue here. It's unbelievably bad.

    6:10am 100%
    7:43am 82% (no activity except one 8 minute phonecall)
    8:22am 69% (no activity)
    8:32am 63% (read one email, maybe 30 seconds to complete)
    9:23 48% (no activity)

    I tried plugging it in via the USB port on my work PC, but charging via that doesn't even allow it to keep up, needs to be wall charger giving full juice to gain.

    I think I will try hard resetting tonight but still a pain.

    EDIT:

    Looks like Readdit is using 33% for some reason? I disabled it and will see if there is an improvement.

    When not using, battery can last little over a day, when using..well sometimes two charges a day.

    EDIT: found that ,,what's app" usually usr about 30% and sometimes 70...

    I've noticed a huge difference on my Lumia 950 with this update. It has given me anywhere from 5 to 6 hours more battery life If I'm using it. It was giving me 7 to 8 hours of battery life with a giant 12 to 13 percent per hour discharge speed and now I get 14 to 15 hours and 6 to 7 per hour discharge speed. It's a great improvement.

    The new start screen set-up is a battery hog it looks like. Hope in the next update MS is able to help optimize that. What we have to know that since Nokia isn't in charge of the Lumias anymore, the firmware updates to pair up with the OS updates so far isn't there yet if ever for the older models. So far only the 950/XL have received firmware updates and that's because those are MS branded. Like I said I'm hoping we see some form of update to help the majority with older models like the 920/1520/1020/830/925/930/520 even receive an optimization to help these models run the wp10 OS more smoothly.

    Don't understand why MS in their endeavors not use the lesser/lower end hardware to test out these updates/upgrades to the OS for mobile. Simple logic is if they blaze on the older models how much better would newer hardware react to give a wider acceptance of WP.

    In my case, I had the worst possible experience with the last build.
    Previous build, battery would last me 8 hours.. 10 y I used the phone lightly (that's a lot of hours for me)

    With this build, my phone barely lasted 6 hours... yesterday, I arrived home and decided to leave it on airplane mode at 22%, today, the phone won't even boot up. Battery is drained and seems that is not able to charge... sighs.

    No carriers here have windows phones and I don't have the money to get an unlocked one. I guess I'll have to go the android route because iphones are just too damn expensive. F**k, I'll miss my phone's camera.
