    I installed Android Pay yesterday morning on my Moto X Pure and noticed that afternoon my phone getting hot and the battery rapidly discharging. The battery drained last night for the first time in a long time.

    This morning I'm seeing the same thing. Warm phone and excessive battery usage.

    I turned off NFC in the settings and the phone cooled off. Charging it now.

    Anyone know of any issues with Android Pay and NFC on their phones? First time I've installed it and was wondering if it's constantly running in the background waiting to spend some money.

    Thanks,

    Scott

    I would do a Network Settings Reset, then a cache wipe in recovery.

    I did not observe the behavior you describe on my Moto X Pure Edition.

    I leave NFC on all the time.

    Mine is on all the time too, and I haven't had those issues either.

    Same here, NFC on always and no effect on heat or battery at all. I've never used Android pay tho either. It sounds like an app problem... Maybe uninstall and reinstall if nothing else works?

    Android pay was so badly broken on the Nexus 6's with nougat 7.1.1 that Google is forcing an OTA downgrade to 7.0, so maybe it's glitchy on MM as well. It sounds kinda problematic 😮

    I use Android Pay and keep NFC on all the time, I have no heating or battery drain issues.

    Try clearing your cache partition. https://motorola-global-portal.custh...p/30,6720,9541

    It appears to have been not related to Android pay and NFC. It did this for one day and the next day it went away. After the battery seems better than ever! Go figure!
