    Battery life of phone is reducing day by day. It will charged 8 hours a day again I have charge it. Most of time phone gets heated if Im browsing or chatting. and some times even while playing games in my phone.
    Is there any remedy for this problem.

    Continuous use of a mobile device will result in a warm. I'm not sure why chrome has been a battery hog here lately. I've noticed it's been my 2nd biggest battery suckered over the last week or so now on my S6. With that said, a future update to the app should fix this issue. Could try clearing app cache for Chrome.

    If it gets so hot it's uncomfortable to even hold you may want to look into trying a factory reset. If it still gets that hot, contact Motorola for a warranty claim.

    Use Opera instead, much better browsing experience.
    For extreme data savings, use Opera Mini.
    I use Opera on Wi-fi, and Mini on data.
    I've seriously never seen battery use for Opera any higher than 1%.

    I'm using opera and it works nicely, not draining my battery. There is a fork of the Chromium browser that is modified specifically for Qualcomm Chips and it really speeds things up a bit too. Maybe check that out.

    It's listed as CAFBrowser I believe. It's not on the Play Store though, so use it at your own risk.

    First day on marshmallow for me and battery had drained much faster than on lollipop. I notice chrome is at the top of the battery usage list which I'm surprised by given that I don't feel I've used it much more than normal

    As with every major OS update, did you clear cache files and that? No issues like that here when I was using Chrome. I'm still using Opera however, works much better this way.

    I've cleared cache and done a factory reset, starting from fresh restoring no backups. Chrome is a big big drainer always at the top in battery stats. Seems mobile data gets stuck on perhaps just like google services on lollipop. Swapped one battery drain for another! Maybe I'll try a different browser

    Yeah I'm not sure then that is very weird. I don't have the mobile data issue at all anymore. Facebook would cause it sometimes but I just deleted that POS software.
