This is a very good post but sadly this thread has been labeled as solved but i see no solution yet. 

Have you had your issue resolved? 

 

Perhaps this battery drain questions should be raised on a non Lenovo site that is not concerned about posting potential defects that could cause mass returns to such a new device. 

 

Sadly, i already had to return my Moto X Pure because out of the blue it had a tons of lines on the screen that ruined the device.

Re: Moto G4 Plus WIFI battery drain

This particular problem is not limited to Motorola phones. I found similar discussions regarding wifi battery drain on other phones, LG, Samsung, etc.. First of all, simply turning off WiFi on the pull down quick settings screen does not mean it's off. I know that sounds absurd, but if your phone has location services on, the WiFi is 'scanning.' And if there are few WiFi spots to find, the device keeps looking.

 

To check this setting, go to Location->Menu(3 dots)->Wi-Fi Scanning and turn off WiFi scanning. It is trying to "improve location by allowing system apps and services to detect WiFi networks at any time." Again, this is NOT the same setting as WiFi on and WiFi off in the main settings menu. This setting allows or disallows OTHER apps to use the WiFi scanning function.

 

Next go to " Settings>WiFi>'3dot menu>Advanced

Turn off "network notification" and change the option for "Keep WiFi on during sleep" to NEVER.

 

SOME user comments linked this issue to Marshmallow. Some reverted to Lollipop and found the issue resolved; others did not. I'm NOT suggesting anyone do this, but simply stating what my research has turned up. This one issue at least cannot be laid at the door of Lenovo/Moto. 

 

Here is an article from Android Central about a user having the same issue with a Samsung Galaxy S6.

I hope this may help with your issue.

Good that you returned your device .  after wipe cache partition and and a reboot the wifi battery drain issue is fixed as of now . but now mobile standby is consuming more battery unusual.

Re: Moto G4 Plus WIFI battery drain

Can you check this mate? I don't see any potential solution or solution worked for anyone and yet its being labelled as solved. Please give update to Moto G4 Plus to solve this issue. Lenovo must accept that there are bugs and problems in phone. No phone is perfect. I don't know why Moto is reluctant in solving issues. Sorry but it would be failure if company neglects the customer. Thank You!!
