    Disappointed...but since my WinPhone is mostly for working tasks (Windows sync between laptop & mobile, etc...) , it won't impact me much.

    I am still on my Lumia 640 (it still lasts twice as long as Android and Apple device of my wife). I use it for work also. During our Canada trip we used the Windows Mobile phone for navigation (all day) and in the evening I spend roughly same time on my phone as my wife did on her Android phone. Windows phobe lasts at lleast 2 days with normal usage, after one day of intensive usage (navigation) it still has 20% battery left. Two years ago in Namibië we has same experience with wife's Apple phone. Battery life was the best selling point of Windows phones.

    WM is best for better battery life, I own a L730 and it lasts me 2-3 days and a day for navigation. iOS usage time is less than WM, since on iOS while using the battery drains rapidly. On standby, iOS takes 12 hrs to decrease from 100-99% afterwards usage time is very bad on iPHONE.

    @Vasudev My WM battery life experience is simular. I also like the granularity of feature control (like background execution, access to camera, contacts etc).

    @Umbra My wife always buys Sony Xperia, in december she will replace her Xperia M aqua, so Sony Xperia XA1 is the obvious candidate. Please post experiences (including batterly life).

    XA1 ultra is awesome (if you don't mind the lack of fingerprint scanner and body "crap" sensors), battery is 2700 only, seems weak but Sony is awesome to optimize the OS so it uses less battery than Samsung or other brand and last as long.

    will keep you informed, just got it 2 days ago lol.

    Ok, THX

    I have found some reviews of the XA1 on battery power, seems okay for a day (heavy use after obe day 20% left which gave it a good core).

    @Windows_Security and with the 10000 powerbanks available, battery life isn't a big issue those days.

    @Umbra Battery tips: Dont let the battery drop below 40%. Also charge it until its 80%. This way the battery will last a lot longer. It is better not to fully charge, because high voltages stresses the battery. Once per month you can calibrate the battery by going from 0% to 100% on one charge. Last tip: Dont use the phone when you charging it :geek:
