    I usually turn Wifi off when I leave for work in the morning since my office doesn't have it and then turn back on when i get home. I've read this is supposed to be better for the battery since phone isn't looking for signal. When I look at my battery history, the WiFi line is almost solid green across the timeline with a handful of small gaps.
    Dumb question, if it is turned off, should it not show anything for that part of the timeline? This isn't anything new, I've noticed it since I got the phone, but never questioned it. Only reason I am now is that the lat few days battery life is a little less than normal and I feel that the WiFi battery usage is a higher percentage.

    You might have Wi-fi Scanning turned on, which helps for location accuracy. Go to Settings>Location, tap Menu>Scanning, and turn off Wi-fi Scanning. It might also be under Settings>Location>Improve Accuracy​.

    Thanks. I turned off that setting. Maybe it will make a difference.

    Jeez, I leave everything turned on (GPS high accuracy, WiFi, Bluetooth) and I still barely dent the battery on the Moto Z Play. Other apps doing something they shouldn't? Facebook?
