    Seriously!! How can I truly complain with a phone released in 2013 designed to run WP8?? Since then it's been WP8.1,GDR1,GDR2 and now WP10 that hasn't been released for full public usage yet. When Apple releases an OS update/upgrade it's done with a set parameter of hardware in mind that would run the OS optimally. MS does it saying to maintain it's customer base so as not to leave out anyone, but in doing so you open these same consumers to dissatisfaction with their older devices whereas other rivals ensure their consumers are satisfied with their experiences on the hardware listed as compatible. Why should I rant and rave over a new OS not truly designed as yet to run optimally on devices 2yrs old like the L920.

    What I do appreciate and accept is the opportunity to be able to install the new OS on my L920 and experience the ups and downs but more so ups over the downs that when I change it that I'll already know what I'll be continuing with and with newer hardware to allow me to enjoy the WP10 OS even more.

    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.
    Are you running the new firmware cuz I have an ATT 950 and I know the firmware won't come for awhile wondering if I should hop on the insder yo get the update

    My 920 went from 100% to 21% in about 8 hours. Not so good. I used to get a day and a half. Ironically, it seems to charge much faster, now.

    I bought my 830 a week ago and have been using it as my daily phone at work sens. It works awesome with w10 .63. Battery is great, have about 65-70% left after work and I talk a lot in my phone at work, also get a lot of mail at work. From my experience W10 works excellent. Stabil and smooth with very good battery life.

    Battery life pretty bad in my 830. I think the offending app is Messenger. Huge background usage. I'm guessing because of Skype integration.?.? Unfortunately if you turn Messaging background off then new messages will not notify..

    I don't use Messenger a lot, but I rarely use Skype. My Messenger background usage was high. I simply logged out of Skype (Skype Video I think) and now Messenger doesn't even appear on the battery usage list.

    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.
    Could make a full 4 hour trip with good battery left to spare 3 months ago. The phone runs hot all the time since the last update.

    Another reason to stop using that ancient app. :)

    No, I haven't. The battery is still absolutely terrible. Lumia 930.

    Yup yup, sure did but only after I disabled the messaging + skype in background and turned down the transparency start screen setting to under 80%. Now I've gone from 100% to 70% from 4am -> approx 4:30pm. Before it would have showed either 40% or less in that span of 12hrs. So that is definitely a huge battery improvement on my L920.

    Im using 950 with the .63 build on the fast insiders program and I can see improvements. Everyday on the way to work(1 hour usage),I would surf, read news and listen to bluetooth headphones and it would drop to 80% from 100%. Now it drops to just 90%:)

    Noticed that too on my L535, also fast at charging, used to take more than 6 hrs to hit 95% charging.

    I managed to revive my phone. Still, battery usage is worse than previous build. I feels like the battery is draining way too fast (2-3 hours faster than in the previous build)
