First of all, a big thank you to all those that have put in time and effort into the WoA project. The ability to run full W10 on a mobile device is truly fascinating.
I have recently delved into the WoA world with my old Lumia 950xl (after replacing it as a daily driver with a new S20+) and I am rather excited at the possibilities this brings. I’ve used my Lumia with WoA for calls, used it for light work, and, overall, I’ve enjoyed it a lot – albeit for the minimum time I’ve been able to use it.

My key issue with WoA on my 950xl is battery consumption.
I have done the steps mentioned in topics such as this (disable Windows Defender)

viewtopic.php?f=11&t=51
I have also disabled search indexing and I am using battery saver mode all the time.
Still standby time is very bad, nothing like what is mentioned in posts like this (20 hrs standby)
viewtopic.php?f=16&t=4&p=576&hilit=battery+life#p576
it’s more like the 7-8 hrs standby, as per the “prior” state mentioned in the post.
Are there any other fixes / tweaks I am missing, that I could apply so as to get a more decent battery life?
