    Is anyone experiencing this issue? My 6p seems fine. What is everyone else's opinion about the issue?

    Now see you on the beta developer previews before the final release of Nougat? I mean the same goes for my phone as well, but still... Thanks.

    It's pretty common, honestly, a lot of the new stuff added in the update can be more energy consuming.

    Hi guys, just got a N6p and opted into the developer preview ring and installed Nougat. Can't say about the battery life since I didn't have time to play with the previous version.
    Is Nougat still in Beta? Kinda wary of preview versions after my windows insider experiences.

    Definitely trouble here. Used to be able to get full day out of a charge, but no more since Nougat. Android System and Android OS taking up more battery than usual.

    No, my battery seems like it's even longer to be honest.

    I'm having a similar experience here. I keep my screen brightness down near 25%, my screen timeout is at 30 seconds, and I have wifi and bluetooth on. I'm probably a moderate user, web browsing, social media, some streaming music, a few short youtube videos and I cannot get more than 8 hours from a full charge. I've tried all the usual fixes without much luck.

    Mine is noticeably worse . Dev preview 5 was fine. Final version even though it was a tiny update from the final dev preview, battery is nexus 6 bad. Went from 4+ hours SOT to approx 2.5. Same usage.

    I have a feeling that some people like to fiddle around with their phone from the excitement of getting a new update so they turn the screen on more often for no particular reason. That's stopping Doze from doing what it should resulting in additional standby drain.

    My battery "issue" got better over time as I went back to my regular usage which didn't involve fiddling around with the new features quite as much (randomly adding side by side apps just for the sake of doing it or expanding and contracting notifications and not actually doing anything tangible with it).

    Random tip: turn ambient display off, it's incredibly unreliable anyway.

    I'm experiencing a lot of excessive battery drain in general now, 6P getting hot, and Gmail app using excessive battery (7%).

    Is anyone experiencing this issue? My 6p seems fine. What is everyone else's opinion about the issue?

    Mine is seeing abnormal drain as well. I typically charge before I go to sleep, then take it off the charger during the night. I go to bed at 100% and wake up 6-7 hours later at 100%. Now I'm waking up with 92% or 93%. It's not sleeping. I did a factory reset yesterday but it's not noticeably better so far today. We'll see how it goes over the next few days. Are those with issues using Android Wear?

    I did a manual OTA flash of NRD90U last night then fully charged. After overnight off charge then almost an hour listening to music on BT headphones (music was cached to my phone, not streamed from the cloud) I'm down to ~80% battery. It's been ~13 hours since I took it off charge.

    I also have an AW watch, which was NOT connected when I was listening to music but has been connected otherwise.

    Mine is dozing better than it was before the factory reset, but not as good as it was before the update. I took mine off the charger 12 hours ago. I have 2 hours SOT, 3 hours of casting TuneIn Radio to my Chromecast (which keeps the device awake the entire time) and 30 minutes of intense gaming. Normally I'd be dead by now. So the reset helped, and hopefully it'll get better as things smooth out over the next few days. I also got a bunch of app updates as well which could have remedied a problem there.

    Me? I did it direct from Marshmallow. Downloaded the NRD90U OTA file and pulled it from my Mac using an ADB connection rather than waiting for the push from Google.

    For me turning off 5GHz WiFi did the trick. Did a factory reset, but still had a lot of wake time on Android OS. Not til I turned off my 5GHz wifi connection and went back to 2.4GHz did I see a noticeable improvement.

    Every since taking the OTA to 7 (Stock) I have been seeing terrible battery drain. I gave it the week+ to see if it was just because I was using the phone differently...

    Standard morning for me is about 6 hours of "use/talking/texting and lots of emailing" just over 1 hour of SOT

    Cleared Cache, still seeing android and system taking large amount, not dozing.. terrible 2 days... around 20% left by noon, charged for the afternoon

    Reset to Factory and seeing a huge improvement, at 75% at noon

    I did a restore from google, so all the same apps just "fresh install"

    I'll see how it goes for the rest of the week... but right now, at least I don't feel like I have to carry a charger in my pocket...

    My experience has been very similar. Keep us posted in the next week. If things improve for you I'm probably going to give a factory reset a try.

    How does one turn off 5GHz WiFi? I cannot find in any WiFi settings how to do that.

    Thanks for any help! (Note that I am on a 5X running 7.0)
