Wifi draining battery in Moto x play Android 6.0

2015-12-21, 18:01 PM
Hi,
I just got Android Marshmallow 6.0 update on my Motorola Moto X play yesterday , I don't know whether it is soak test or not.
But after the update Wifi is draining most of the battery of my Moto X play, I have also stopped the wifi scanning in location and keep wifi ON during sleep
setting.

Ok, i've done that on my X Play, but haven't reboot. I reenable Wifi scanning, reboot, redisable wifi scanning and reboot. And after that it's OK for me.

Hi,



 



Disable Wifi scanning into Location settings and reboot the phone.

Ok I have done what you have said, can you tell which setting you adopt for Location (High accuracy, battery saving, GPS).
AND where to report bugs for soak test.

If this was pushed to you by Motorola then continue to post here. If you side loaded then post on the site that showed you how to side load. 



Assuming you got this OTA from Motorola, then try a reboot. If that doesn't work try rebooting into safe mode. 



Also, your numbers are hard to interpret as you have not done a full charge since the graph started, so the numbers are a bit misleading. So charge to 100% before posting more screenshots.

Battery drainage is very fast.

@Rahul9x
Have you updated to M, I faced this situation but I did factory reset on my phone. Now there is no Wifi draining problem, infact now Wifi doesn't show in the battery usage statistics and my phone has become smooth also...
