    Hello, I have bought brand new homtom ht16 smartphone, it runs on android 6. when it is on a standby mode battery keeps well (it only drops by no more than 20% during the 24h), but when the cellphone is awake (even if Im not using any software or programs) the battery is dropping down by 1% every single minute. literally. what could be the problem?

    You have $50, 3 year old, 1gig of ram and 16 gigs of ssd memory device . Your phone is pretty much good only to be a phone, and maybe a couple of light apps.
    Reset it without restore.
    Don't download anything unless you know it's size and you really need it. Good luck.

    Welcome to Android Central! Are you certain it's "brand new"? If it's 3 years old, as mentioned by methodman89, it's almost certainly used or refurbished. If the previous owner used the phone pretty hard, letting the battery drain down to zero frequently, that can significantly shorten the battery's overall lifespan.
