Since I updated to marshmallow
My battery is shocking.. But that could be I had a 3rd party launcher
Today this morning was 100℅ by lunchtime it was 7%!! Now I know moto batteries are wonderful so I've gone back to stock Google launcher and lock screen
Hopefully that will sort it if not anyone have any tips
I'm in U.K.
thanks

What do you see in your battery stats? Any app or system process taking an unusual high percentage? You could try wiping the cache partition on recovery and see if it helps.

might be a defective battery. but try clearing cache partition and also Settings>Location>three dot menu upper right hand corner>Scanning and make sure wifi scanning is off. Most third party launchers (at least the ones I've used and currently use) don't have a substantial effect on the battery life

It says mobile standby 16% and Android OS 14% those 2 are the most is this normal? Up until today battery was very good I've only had phone a month

Sorry to be daft but how do you clear cache?

No need to apologize mate :) Try these instructions by Motorola

https://motorola-mobility-en-in.cus...prod_answer_detail/a_id/105656/p/30,6720,9390

You could post a couple of screenshots with your battery stats so we can have a better idea of what's going on. Try this. After a full charge use your phone normally and when you have about 30% of battery left take a screenshot of these battery stats:

- Main battery stats.
- Tap on the graph to get signal and awake bars.
- Tap on Screen to see the SoT.

This guide will help you to post screenshots in the forums.

Thanks everyone for the advice I've filed it for future reference
I seemed to have solved it I had Go launcher Go locker and DU cleaner and phone booster going I got rid of them and went back to stock Google now launcher
Used phone exactly the same today and battery back to normal
I think I was running too many 3rd party apps
Thanks once again for all the advice!

GO apps are horrible, stay away from them. You don't need any cleaners or boosters either, they have the opposite effect 99% of the time... Let the OS do what it needs to, this isn't the days of Froyo or Gingerbread anymore, Android handles things quite well on its own and apps like this just mess with its ability to properly manage things.

Thanks yes I researched and nearly all experts say Go etc and battery savers do more harm than good
Moto operative system does it fine on its own
Esp with marshmallow etc there is absolutely no need for anything else
Lesson learnt!

I had horrible battery when I upgraded to MM. I am afraid only a factory reset will fix it. I've gone from 1.5 hours of SOT to 4 hours and 20 minutes after and FDR.

yes I had the same issue and only FR fixed it, MM is not bad, far from it, but 5.1.1 is good enough until we get 6.x.x officially or unofficially.

Update on battery life re marshmallow update since I've factory reset it'd been great
It is a bit of a pain but if you are having issues or glitches since updating then I would really recommend it
For me personally my phone is working beautifully
Thanks to everyone here who replied with great suggestions

I think performing a FR after a major upgrade should be done automatically (after backing up data) since it fixes almost every issue a major update might spring.

Couldn't agree more David only wished I'd done it sooner
Back up everything first and do it
Since I have its running like new
No lagging no glitches all my apps load faster really would recommend it

Thanks for these details. I only tend to get around 4 hours SOT, which seems enough, but wonder if a factory reset might help with other issues.

I'm newish to Android, from iOS - when people do factory resets, do they then restore from the Google backup? Or might this reintroduce issues? Is it better to reset then manually restore apps and settings?

Also, for apps like Pocket Casts, if I restore from Google, will all the settings be restored too? Is this a per-app thing (i.e. the dev needs to have set it up to restore nicely?) I'm guessing I'd need to redownload any stored content.

I wouldn't be able to say because of how much it varies. Certain apps such as Android Central, and ask.fm automatically re-log you in, however others like Instagram and Snapchat are completely reset.
