    Which apps are the top 5 battery users on your W10M device? I'm curious to see what other people are experiencing. This is of course heavily determined by personal usage. But it's interesting none the less.

    To figure this out, simply go to settings -> system -> battery -> Battery usage by app -> Time: 1 Week -> Showing: Apps with usage

    This is my list:

    1.) Readit (16%)
    2.) Microsoft Messaging (14%)
    3.) Start (11%)
    4.) Client for YouTube (9%)
    5.) Microsoft Band ( 7%)

    Hmmmm. Mine are as follows:

    1) Start. 28%

    2) Whatsapp. 23%

    3) Microsoft Photo 6%

    4) Windows Defender 5%

    5) Mail and calendar 4%

    I've noticed that so far I'm the only one with Start using more than a quarter of my battery use. Can anyone please explain a way to decrease this to a more acceptable level?

    Don't pointlessly stay on your start screen without doing anything.

    1) Messenger - 25%

    2) Facebook - 14%

    3) Start - 12%
