    I've waited for two days before checking and seems like it got worst and worst on the last two updates, this one drains battery in 5hours... normal use as I've always have before W10M it was bad, probably 13 - 15 hours just enough to go through the day and then charge.

    Yup on every build on wm10 the battery is worse then on 8.1. But lets be clear on wm 8.1 you can play games for 2h:20mins, And average SOT when you dont play games and just using phone and on wi-fi is about 3h:20mins, 1 percent per 2 minutes....So one way or another the battery pretty much sucks on 925...Im just waiting to change it for something better....

    So far this build is bad on battery, the last 2 have been good, earlier ones though have been bad. 6-8 hours less than before, and there is no comparison to W8 though, it has very good battery life.

    3h you have to check a lot of things. My 520 in intensive use lasts 8 hrs, moderate 10/12h

    Had no battery problems with my 1520 over the last few builds. Can't see me replacing this phone unless something very amazing appears.☺

    Same here, on 640. Did full reset. Worst build yet, the others were far more stable and useable.

    I meant SOT-screen on time, using phone without break, continuously using it. Not even intensive use, but using it all the time. So the phones battery and SOT is pretty bad no mater what OS are you using, except on wm10 its a bit worse

    Change some settings would be the most obvious answer .

    I guess I'm just one of the lucky ones. My 640 gets crazy good battery life. I have to charge it every 48 hours. I can easily get through two days at work on a single charge. Most of the time I can get through an entire weekend after taking my phone off the charger Friday morning before work, and back on the charger Sunday night.

    Have you updated all store apps, doing this can chew battery life

    i have a question: which way to save more battery: 1) keep only data on, 2) keep both data and wifi on? i thought if i keep both of them on, it will save more battery? as most of the time i have wifi around. however, i do go out without wifi. i just dont want to switching them all the time . has anyone experience the difference?

    Both. Wifi saves a lot more, so you can use free wifi around, your home or office wifi. Leave data and wifi always on.
    Using only data carrier burst battery in few hours.
    On Windows 8.1, there was a clear notice "Using Wifi saves battery"

    be patient, half of s.o. is in beta stage. Passing from 65 to 71 literally doubled multitasking response speed on my little 520. _That means there's a lot of potential in developing progress

    with build .107 I'm re-enabling everything to start from scratch I guess, if battery seems to be bad still(I'll wait a couple of days) I'll go ahead with disabling skype, mms and edge synch. we'll see how this goes.
