    For me, the initial experience after upgrading to 15204 and doing a FDR was TERRIBLE HORRIBLE OVERNIGHT STANDBY DRAIN. I went to bed with it fully charged and the next morning it was around 20%. The battery stats said 77% of the drain was "settings" with all of that in the background. I assume "settings" is a euphemism for (or at least includes) system processes? If not, what would settings be doing in the background?

    I have rebooted and am charging. I can't wait to see what happens next.

    I think you're right. Hopefully it settles down and battery life improves.

    No such experience here. I can think that it has tried to download some apps on background unsuccessfully (there is always some background redownloads after update, some you can not see in store app). Idle memory consumption is still less than 0,5 %/hour, so I lose less than 4 % during 8 hours night (unless there is too many background jobs to be done) ...

    15204 on 950XL, has seem to operate flawlessly so far, noticeable faster for me.
    Same here on my 959XL. No problems at all so far. Battery life seems improved overall, too (albeit not dramatically).

    I think it may indeed have settled down after rebooting and charging. When I got up this morning to find the battery nearly dead, the phone was cool to the touch but not cold like it is now.

    I have seen 0.5%/hour in standby many times in the past but has never been consistent. Lets see how this build fares.

    Hi all -

    Running on my 950Xl - the only issue I have had on the last two builds is regarding Maps. When using a Bluetooth connection with headphones, maps reads me my directions. When I connect to Sync Bluetooth in my 2012 Ford Escape, maps cuts into the playback, but no sound comes out. I have not found is there is a setting to adjust this. Bluetooth audio is working fine for phone calls and playing music on Groove.

    On my Elite X3 this build has way fewer issues. The text input issue in Edge is gone and works perfectly now.

    Outlook Calendar Live Tile is dead. Have to add an event to revive it. Then it eventually dies again. First time I've had this issue for quite a while.

    Has worked for me the recent weeks. But it seems, live tiles are the most difficult engineering problem ever. At least for Microsoft.

    You know, it occurs to me that I don't think I have one single live tile on my Start screen that works perfectly. They all either do not work as designed (for example Facebook, Facebook Messenger) or intermittently stop working altogether (for example Store, Outlook Calendar).

    Not sure why, but I have still not gotten the 15204 update for my Alcatel OneTouch Fierce XL. Still on 1703 15063.138 and every time I check for updates it says non are available. Any ideas? And I'm on the Insider Fast ring, always have been on this phone.

    It should be available for your phone. Well, there is a new build 15205 available, so try again :)

    The release notes for new Build 15025 say "We fixed the targeting issue that caused some variants of the Alcatel IDOL 4S to not receive Build 15204 last week. All variants of the Alcatel IDOL 4S should receive Build 15205."

    Don't know if that fix will benefit you - hopefully it does.

    So far it hasn't, have tried soft resets. switching rings, nothing, continues to tell me I'm up to date and the are no updates available. Starting to think that maybe the insider API may be FUBAR'd and may have to do a hard reset or WDRT and start over. Hate that

    Alcatel Idol 4S (T-Mobile) updated to 15205 here. Could not update to 15204 at all. I guess I was one of the 0.1%.

    UPDATE: We’re seeing that some small percentage ~0.1% of eligible Mobile devices, including variants of the Alcatel IDOL 4S, are not being offered Build 15204. We’re working on updating the targeting to include them for the next flight.

    Updated my 950xl yesterday. All went well. Took the plunge on the X3 now. Stuck at the HP logo for a few hours. I performed a soft reset and all is well.

    So far the device hasn't hung like it was previously.
