    I'm not sure if my battery is broken or it's just the new build (fast ring) but I can't use my phone anymore without hugging the wall... When I just play music or make calls while the screen is off there's no problem but when the screen is on - I'm not exaggerating - after 2 minutes I get the battery low thingy and my phone goes off immediately even when the battery is at 100%. So anyways is it just me or is this a known issue?

    A lot of users have been complaining about this, but MS is stating it officially in the "what's broken" list.. You're not alone

    If you've already done a hard reset without any improvements, downgrading might be the way to go. Haven't seen anyone on the TH builds complaining about the battery life (release preview ring)

    Please DO NOT downgrade to WP 8.1 or W10M release preview as it doesn't solve the battery problem

    You need to turn off a lot of background tasks if you don't want massive battery drain. So w10m is no different from the droids.

    I'll say this if you charge till 100% and then take off and can't surf web for than 30 mins then it needs new battery I just did one yesterday and is easy.

    Now if it last longer then probably software cause still not I'm still losing 1% every 10 mins surfing web.

    I have a HUUUGEEE battery drain, and I started thinking it was just the battery that went bad. However after reading that lot of 1520 users are facing the same problem, I'll have to test it out.
    I'll try reverting back to 8.1, to see if it's actually Win10M's problem. And if it is, then I don't know what to do. If not, I'll just buy a new battery, though that's a hard task. In my country Lumias were never too popular, especially the top end ones, so finding a battery for a 3 year old Lumia is like finding a burried treasure.

    It doesn't have anything to do with background task, sure it makes your battery die faster but not as fast as 100% to 1% in 2-3 minutes of Screen on time

    Don't downgrade as it's just a waste of time

    Yeah, I think it's my battery. My phone is nearly unusable. You can't count on it at any given moment of the day. I'm about to get robbed by repair shops. -_-
