I upgraded my Karbonn Sparkle V to marshmallow and found that the battery drains at approximately 10% an hour in standby. Just to give a perspective on what the battery drain was with Lollipop: I would start with full charge at 7:30AM and after moderate usage (40-45min calls and casual browsing) ended up with around 65-70% of battery life 12hrs later (7:30PM). Now my battery doesn't make it through the day even with battery saver turned on. Google better rectify this soon.

Same here. Battery drain has increased by about 30% on my Spice Android One after the Marshmallow upgrade. And Android M is supposed to increase battery life!

I hope soemoen ahs a solution soon.

Hi all try DU battery saver, it really helped me out. Additionally, also try Space Cleaner by Uniblue, it will help to clear out your device in terms of Junk and cache files which are not only hogging space on your device but also draining your battery with unnecessary app and file processes running in the background of your device.

I installed Mcafee Battery saver which i have found to be the best. It has helped to some extent, but the battery drain is still much more than it was with Android 5.1. Since the problem seems to be affecting all makes of Android One phones, I wonder if there is an inherent problem with them that is causing the excessive battery drain.

oh this is reminding me of lollipop "upgrade" last year on my 1st gen Moto G, battery life went into chaos mode, tried out some apps to help which was not OK. I just wanted my moto to work properly... couple of months later all was good, lollipop calms down and I'm happy moto user again..
hopefully it's just simple teething problems....

After upgrading my Android one (micromax), to Android 6, I too feel that the bnlattery gets drained very very very fast.
I doubt whether android one is not designed for upgrade to marshmallow. Is there is any way to revert back to 5.1.1, which is certainly faster and better both in terms of performance and battery life.

Battery usually drains when some apps keep using the phone resources in the background. I have started using android phone few months ago and got the same issue of charging phone all the times however after deleting few apps I am feeling better than before.

Thank u lilly white,

Actually google itself gave us battery saver mode and more often it worked better in lollipop, while coming to 6.0 it is not a good battery saver at all. tried some battery savers from play store but no use.

A friend suggest this, which he says helped him. Open Setting and then Battery. Tap the menu icon (3 dots) on the top right og the screen. Battery Optimization opens. Select All Apps. App power consumption should get optimized. It will take some time for all the apps to be optimized. I will revert on what results I get. If anyone wants to try this, plese give us feedback about how effective it is on this forum.

Hello James_Watson,

may be your vendor not ready to provide updates for your devices, probably you will receive in last days of 2015 or early 2016. thank you.

The app optimization did not work. The battery drain is still bad. This is ridiculous! Google will probably fix this in due course, but I can't keep charging my phone 2 or 3 times a day. Is there any way to go back to Android 5.1?
