    Has anyone else found that there's an extreme battery drain following Tuesday's monthly security update? I have not used my 950XL DS since I unplugged it, fully charged, from my car charger less than 3 hours ago and it's already down to 70% just sitting here on my desk. I've checked and there's nothing running in the background but it continues to drain. Was fine before the update.

    I haven't noticed any difference so far on my lumia 950 XL SS, maybe a bit a early to tell. Still at 60% 11 hours after charging, usually charge it fully over night.

    Mine is at 53%, 4 hours after unplugging from the car charger fully charged. That said, I just tried (another) soft reset and it seems to have stabilized the drain.

    I also found my battery draining much faster on my X3 since the last update.. I thought I was just imagining it... but normally I can forget to charge my X3 at night and still not go under 40% through the whole day till after work 6pm.. now it won't last since the update Tuesday. The long battery life on my X3 is ONE of the many reasons I keep my X3. hope it goes back to normal after it normalizes

    In my particular case, every update(including some app updates) resets my backup settings. I have facebook/Instagram/music/etc turned off. If I don't, it gets stuck trying to back up several GB worth of data. The phone gets hot and the battery drain happens non-stop(as it never finishes the backup). Whenever my battery starts acting funny, it's the first section I go to and always find my settings jacked.
