    I bought my 6P used about 6 months ago, and I never have been all that impressed with its battery life. It was OK on Marshmallow, but I thought it could be better. I got Nougat via official OTA earlier this week. Battery life has been somewhat worse since then.

    I have not ever yet done a factory reset other than the initial reset before setting it up for the first time. There have been many monthly updates and one OS version update since then. I'm about to do that and see if it helps.

    How does one turn off 5GHz WiFi? I cannot find in any WiFi settings how to do that.
    Do you have WiFi Assistant enabled? Or is it built into the final version of Nougat? Could be the assistant is in control of selecting the best frequency band per network.

    The option to select 2.5 or 5 used to be under Settings > WiFi > Advanced > Frequency band, I think. But it's no longer available on my N6 either (which is running DP5 with WiFi Asst enabled).

    I don't have WiFi Asst - and not listed on Play as an available app

    It's not an app; it was rolled out as part of an update to Connectivity Services. The toggle lives under Settings > Google > Networking. But if you don't got it, you don't got it.

    Thanks - and I, like you - don't got it

    Thanks for any help! (Note that I am on a 5X running 7.0)
    I think he means turning it off on his WiFi network, not from the phone.

    yeah i agree. love the extended Doze feature - sometimes if I ignore my phone in my bag or pocket while on the move, the battery level didn't budge much (unlike with Marshmallow) Put Data Saver on top of this and it may go on for even longer.

    What are the main additions to the Android Nougat? What have they removed from Marshmellow and what has improved?

    Sorry just saw this.... I didn't physically turn it off in the phone, I just "forgot" the 5GHz network my wireless router broadcasts so my phone I only connects to my 2.4 GHz network. My router is setup to broadcast both a 5GHz and 2.4GHz band. Seemed to do the trick for me.

    I FOUND OUT HOW TO STOP NEXUS 6P NOUGAT BATTERY DRAIN FOR ME. Go into developer options, disable automatic system updates, and disable always allow wifi roam scans. Restart. Fixed.

    I just received the 7.1 update a couple of days ago (beta program) and so far it hasn't helped with the battery drain. It may have even made it worse. The first Nougat update actually made my battery last longer than before. I was getting almost 2 days out of it. Now I get maybe 8 hours. When I look at what's using the most power it is by far "Android System" and second "Android OS." I've never seen that happen before. It's getting very frustrating.

    It worked for me, that's why I said "for me" you should try it and find out. I've since upgraded to an AXON 7 and enjoy epic battery life.

    So for most current 6p owners, would you say battery still continues to be an issue? Depending on this is whether I'll fork out the cash to buy a 64gb 6p this black friday. I currently have a 4 yr old phone with a battery that barely lasts half a day before I need to charge and that's with very minimal use...

    I am running the latest beta version of Nougat on my 6P and have no battery issues. Battery life depends on what you do on your phone.

    For me battery is about the same on 7.1.1 vs. 7.0. However, from time to time, my battery will reach near 20% then my phone will shut down without warning. Hopefully Google fixes this annoying issue.
