    Hello,

    Just wanted to see if it's just my device, or other have this problem. I have a horrible battery drain bug. The start menu, even when the screen is off, is sucking all of the battery. I upgraded from the AU to the CU, never had a CU before 15063.251.

    Picture attached.

    Thanks!

    My Start usage for 24 Hours is 16 %, but I wasted a long time rearranging Start screen icons and folders yesterday. So I think my percentage is normal.

    For 6 Hours it is only 1 %.

    Thanks. Did you reset your device, or just upgraded? Also 950 ?

    I only did soft reset because noticed some tiny issues.

    My Lumia 950 had been having worse proves i can't even take my phone off the charger without it shutting down and rebooting randomly after about 5 minutes of being away from the charger. And will continue to randomly text until I plug it into the charger again

    A lot of people have said that the battery is the issue with the drain but I beg to differ because I'm going on to my third battery and the device is still the same with shutdowns and restarts and it's like someone here said around the 30 or so % mark. Can't be the battery as I've never had that issue before I started getting these recent updates which started at the AU and these seem to do more harm than good on some devices. Yet an argument can be made for the quality of battery bought as none are from MS directly, but it can't be a coincidence if this particular issue started after an OS update.

    My Lumia 930 seems, to shut down at 40% citing low battery. I'm waiting slow drain right now to see if it still does it at 40% but it's taking forever, over 2 days and still at 52%.... Maybe it's a wrong calibration because of 950xl name registry change though. Still estimates 1day 4 hours of life left.

    Oh and a Lumia 625 with CU 15063.251 doesn't exhibit this early shutdown behavior

    If you get battery drain after the creator update, as I did, a hard reset should solve it. Should be less of a thing in future due to the new update system included in the creators update. If you are getting reboots when below 40%/30% then it is looking like a duff battery, perhaps revealed by the extra drain caused by the creators update. A hard reset may improve things, but you need to check for the slightest sign of battery bulge because it sounds very likely that a replacement is required.

    This is for the Lumia 950. The L950XL requires a different battery.

    I had my 950 and 950 XL on fast ring with very good battery life, switched the XL back to normal release because of Bluetooth issues, but I thought the battery life was good.

    I stream audio on Bluetooth all day, not much screen on time though....just light Edge browsing, email etc...
