    Can you define "high usage"
    Average to high usage, in my perspective, means pretty heavy screen on time, with task such as browsing, phone calls, emails, gaming and youtube videos.
    If I can recall correctly I did the below things:

    The usual browsing of all the Windows blogs :P (~20 minutes)
    Research the lenovo yoga 2 8 (~30 minutes) (awesome little device!)
    15 minutes phone calls,
    Sent emails
    Jet car stunts gaming for 30 minutes (I love this game, reminds me of trackmania!)
    One 1+ hour long documentary on Perfect Tube and a couple of 10 minutes videos from the subscription feed,
    Set appointments and reminders / note taking with onenote / saved map locations
    Updates / downloaded 2 new apps, tried out, deleted.. :P
    In the night browsing news, about the asteroid flyby, sports and those Windows blogs again (!)
    20 minutes music playback with groove
    Searched and downloaded photos with Perfect Wallpaper / Edited a bunch of photos with autodesk pixlr
    Spent 20 minutes on Readit
    Many calculations with the calculator in order to build the space station in kerbal (I'm a noob)

    This is pretty much what I remember I did with the phone.
    Of course they where short screen on sessions for minor stuff as usual :)

    The fact is that the usage scenarios are defined exclusively by the user and everyone has different perspective on those 3 values (light,average and heavy)
    I wrote average to high usage because after all the work and media consumption I've done, I wasn't expecting the battery to last that long and frankly, it is on par with WP8.1!

    No scientific measurements here but it seems about the same (as 8.1) or slightly better on my 640 XL and 735. Standby is excellent.

    Unfortunately I can't say the same for my experience with 925. Battery used to give me a full day, now my mobile phone seems to not be mobile anymore, constantly plugged in. I don't get any more than 4 hours!!

    My 920's battery would last a day (or two with light usage) on 8.1. Right now on 10581, it was at 57% after three hours. Yes I did a hard reset after upgrading, so no, that doesn't automatically fix everything. And it's not like I can really turn the offensive processes off either....it seems like the worst offenders are Messaging + Skype and Cortana.

    I wonder if MS is not giving a crap about the old S4 chipset? Maybe I need to grab a 640...
