You can try Greenify app from Play Store. It's the most effective battery saving app I've ever used. It puts the apps to sleep which it calls Hibernation.

The MMB29K upadate solved the problem. The battery life is now even better than it was with Android L.

Simple solution is downgrade your device as it is not supporting the update.

First discharge battery 100%and recharge it whole night (switch off condition). Automatically battery performance increases.

Completely agree. After MMB29K , I see longer battery life even with Android charging. I no longer see need to power off and recharge for better battery life.

If your phone battery is draining fast, may be some apps take much electricity or something broken. But don't worry, there is a new function on mobile phone. If you have iOS devices, such as iPhone, I can tell you some skills about battery drain. There is an article about How to See Which Apps Are Draining Your Battery on iPad. When you have some trouble, you can read it.

I have a spice dream uno- cm13, superSU, greenify (donation).The battery problem doesnot gets solved.The only benefit of android marshmallow that I see is the 'memory adopt' feature. I will always prefer CM11(kitkat) snapshot over CM13(marshmallow). Battery backup was 1-2 days with moderate use when I had the 4.4.4.

Me too having the same issue.. As soon as i upgraded my lenovo A7000 smart phone to marshmallow, i can see high diference with Battery Draining fast than the normal when we used to have android 4 or android 5. Google should fix this issue else it is meaning less to upgrade to a higher version.

Also, i had observed that battery charging is quite fast post upgrading to 6.0 and at the stage of 99%, it will take long time to complete in full 100% and not sure what is happening inside.

Best Regards

Battery drain was horrible after marshmallow (6.0.1) on my galaxy s5. Much improved immediately after resetting the network settings. (Backup & reset / network settings reset).

Just downgrade it then. You can find the guide how to downgrade in internet or forums.
Many people already complained about the battery drainage and it really drives them crazy!
(thankfully my Mega 2 still in KitKat :p)

Correction, this worked for a charge cycle or so, now I'm back to crappy battery life. And what is the main user... android system! Followed by device idle. Ugh

If possible you can also try this, It is quite simple to solve, just let your battery be discharge fully, then recharge it fully while your device is Off and then use it. If it doesn’t solve the problem, repeat the process till you are satisfied.

Under battery optimization, the "samsung accessory service" keeps turning off (loosing battery optimization for this app). I repeatedly go into the settings to re-enable it's battery optimization and not sure why it keeps switching back. Though this helps, there's something else that's still draining the battery at about 2x the rate it did with lollypop.
