    Enter Video Skype, Settings, Log out, Confirm. That's the only cure.
    Skype is loggin in without any notice, damn them. I gain 30% battery life
    I entered the Skype Video app, it appeared to not even be fully setup. But, I signed out, but it still shows logged in??

    Ok, a soft reset confirmed I am indeed logged out. Odd the app would not confirm current status elsewise.

    Believe me, log in , skip all Status and Notebook request, then log out. Integration Messages + skype was the worst idea ever

    I have an unlocked 950XL, and have the same problem others are having getting past build .36. I was able to get .63 using WRT, but having to use WRT if I want to update, even though I don't restore from backup, is very frustrating!

    Battery is worse in my Icon. Bluetooth synced with my car perfectly the first 3 or 4 times after installing .71, but now it's back to not working without manually clicking connect on the phone and car simultaneously.

    Very frustrating, and not looking forward to yet another hard reset to try and make this work.
    Having the same issue, got all exited that my bluetooth was working and now it is doing the same thing. Even after a reset is works for a few days and then goes back to the same problem.

    Finding that with my HTC M8 For Windows, the screen no longer rotates when I change the orientation from portrait to landscape and vice versa.

    640xl lte ds: 1) calendar month view some times does not show event / tasks. year view does not have highlighted dates for scheduled task / event. 2) skype call phone does not work anymore. was working with previous version. 3) 3rd party apps some of them do not work anymore.

    note, hard reset does not fix these issues

    This thing with skype consuming a lot of battery
    Does it happen whether you have used skype in the past or if you have never used? I've used skype twice only in the last 6 years and I have 10 contacts in skype who also seem to never use skype. So if I were signed but I've never used skype and data is off, would battery still drain?

    Lumia 640 LTE Dual Sim - 10586.71 - 2 days - feedback

    Battery Life - 10/10 - the phone is back on it's normal behavior, no heat ups, lasts whole day and more with moderate usage of Fb messenger/whatsapp. messaging, calls, 3 email accounts syncing, Wifi at home 4G / 3G whole day at office.

    Stability - 9/10 less hiccups and freezing. happened to me twice for the past 2 days. other than that this is stable as it can be for a beta software

    responsiveness - 9/10 - much snappier and less bugs & lags. had an occasional resuming screen, where I just backed and launched the app

    overall - this release is stable on the 640 (which was released with Windows 10 in mind and sports moderate hardware)

    Hope all you guys will have (some of you are already having) a great time with it!

    Have you updated all these apps in the Store, after .71 there were heaps of updates from the Store needed, just FYI

    yes, updated all of them total about 75 apps. before i report everything, i always check the store to make sure the phone is on the latest everything. by the way, skype sometimes work and sometime not when calling phones....

    update again: Since i used 're-store' from backup after installation of the new .71. then updated all the apps from store. today, i have un-installed those problematic apps, then re-install them: fixed the above mentioned issues. so looks like the restore is not 100% ok sometimes.

    For some they had a lot of apps to update after getting onto 10586.71 but for others there were no app updates like me. Why is that?

    You have to log off VIDEO Skype, not Skype blue logo. That's the iussue I discovered. Video Skype is always logged till you off

    I also just did a Hard reset. I will observe for 24...48 hours and come back. Indeed it does not look a favourable as I initally thought.
    Today after a hard reset (no restore) and after logoff from Skype Video, battery seems considerable better. After 6 hours still 69 percent available. Usage similar as yesterday but much less consumption (among 1 hour radio through Edge). No random restarts, but getting the apps back was a nightmare :). Store also updated to 2015.25.24.0, App updates seem to work now (just had 3 pending).

    Maybe it's only me but I feel like my WiFi issues were fixed then broken with this latest update. Woke to up to my 950 XL again not being connected to WiFi because all 5ghz were no longer recognized. As usual a reboot fixed it.
