    My 18 month old Moto G2's battery is draining by 10-15% every 20 mins and it takes about 7-8 hours to charge from 10% to 100%

    The phone also gets very, very hot even in standby mode even with Data/Wifi/Bluetooth disabled and when not in use.

    I had installed Ampere app and here are the stats:

    Discharge rate/sec: 400-690 mA

    Charge rate/sec: 50-70 mA

    I had tried the following:

    1. Reboot
    2. Safe Mode
    3. Cleared the Cache Partition
    4. Checked for any battery draining apps
    5. Removed the SD card
    6. Reset App preference
    7. Removed all SIM cards
    8. Switched off the phone and plugged it for charging and it took 2 hours to go from 65% to 85%

    Some screen-shots:

    Is it a hardware issue ?

    Welcome to Android Central! Charge up to 100%, then let it drain to 20-30% with normal usage, without charging in between. Then show us:

    1. The main Settings>Battery screen.
    2. The fullscreen battery graph screen (which shows Awake time and Cell Signal Strength).
    3. The Screen category (to see total Screen On time).
    4. The Cell Standby category, if present (to see Time Without Signal).


    You might have to install a 3rd party battery monitor, like GSam Battery Monitor, to get the Cell Signal Strength graph.
