Moto G4 Plus WIFI battery drain

Screenshot_20160612-174229.pngScreenshot_20160612-174234.pngScreenshot_20160612-174240.pngI am using Moto G4 Plus 32 GB Model, in the first run I have seen WiFi is using more battery than Screen. And lot more power it is unacceptable. I have used Moto G1, I have not seen this on G1. So please look into this matter and do the needful . Thanks.

I am not having this draining when Wi-Fi off. Make sure your Wi-Fi scanning is set to off inside the location settings.

Re: Moto G4 Plus WIFI battery drain

Well, according to your screenshot, you are getting 36 hours of battery life, and that seems fine to me. There is nothing magical about the percentages of battery used. Something has to be at the top and if you are not using the phone for much and not keeping the screen on, WiFi is a likely candidate to be the top item. You battery life is good. 

Please do not PM me - if you have issues, search the forums for threads on your topic and post there, or start a new thread. Thanks!

Go to settings, click on search button right side, search for scanning and off the wifi and Bluetooth scanning used for location.

 

You will not see wifi any more on top 😉

Re: Moto G4 Plus WIFI battery drain

When WiFi is off why it is using power?

I am not using WiFi but still my phone is using battery. See the screenshots.

 

WiFi is active for 5 hours but its already disabled.

My phone was heating just because of this.

Re: Moto G4 Plus WIFI battery drain

See in the battery graph. Battery is draining very fast. 

And WiFi is still active. What to do??
