    Since the update to Nougat, this has happened twice: Rapid battery discharge and the phone gets very warm just being in my pocket as I walk around. No use at all from full charge will result in a dead battery in about 5 hours. Ridiculous.

    Continued massive battery drain and warm phone a few minutes later. I just got this phone as a design refresh from Motorola about a month ago. Presumably the battery passed all of Motorola's checks before it was sent to me. Clearly there is a serious problem with Nougat...

    I see voicemail is at 3%, yet I have not checked my voice mail at all.

    Ok, I've seen this reported before from somebody who bypassed signing up for voicemail when setting up their account or phone. I'd suggest going in to My Verizon on a PC browser and verify that you are signed up for basic visual voicemail.

    Had a conference call with Verizon and Motorola together and they said that they acknowledge that after nougat there's a problem with battery life and the droid turbo 2. They claim they are working on an update /patch to fix.. No word on when...... Ugh....

    After a few days of normal battery consumption, I just picked up my phone from a full charge overnight, 12 minutes of use at very low screen brightness and I once again have a very warm phone and massive battery drain. Motorola and Verizon have a serious problem. It seems completely random.

    This is pissing me off. I'm on vacation and my phone is just sitting in the hotel room, getting hot and the battery is draining. I can't go more than 4 hours, even not using the phone, without risking a dead battery unless I keep it plugged in. What's the point of having a large battery if the phone is just going to act like an uncontrolled heater? WTH happened to testing software before it's released?

    It's getting worse. Now I'll have maybe 2 1/2 hours of battery life? I think maybe I'll start making claims with Motorola for defective battery. Maybe if they replace my phone enough times at their cost, they will fix their defective hardware/software?

    Just over 2 hours use from full charge. Stupid ridiculous.

    I'm not sure is this will be a complete solution, but uninstall McAfee ASAP. It's a waste of resources.

    I think I'll restart in safe mode and see what happens. That should eliminate most apps causing a problem

    Not really, unless absolutely forced to. It takes hours to download and set up all my apps just the way I like them. I'm not going to go through all that unless I have no other choice.

    For no discernable reason, my phone cooled off and the mass battery drain has stopped, at least for now. I can find no reason for this to keep happening.

    You can see in the graph where the battery drain stopped. I had the phone on, in my pocket, but was not using it:

    What's a normal temperature for the battery when charging on the supplied turbo charger?

    Same boat here. Did my design refresh in January, battery life was pretty decent. Ever since Nougat last week, the phone is running hot all the time, and I'm lucky to get 7-8 hours out of the phone. Taking a lot longer to get a full charge, and if I'm not plugged into a turbo charger, just using another charger, the phone loses more than it gains (unless I charge it powered off). This upgrade ruined the phone.

    Wow! Madness! Glad you are seeing a bit of an improvement, though!

    Also, LOVE your profile pic.
