Please tell us some basic information before asking for help:

  1. Model Name: Asus 6z
  2. Firmware Version: 18.0610.2106.156
  3. Rooted or not: no
  4. Frequency of Occurrence: everyday

In addition to information above, please also provide as much details as you can, e.g., using scenario, what troubleshooting you've already done, screenshot, etc.

========================================

Battery has been draining very fast ever since the latest update. I used to get around 10 hours of Screen on Time before and I now barely get over 5 hours. Phone is also in a heated state most of the time even when the phone is idle. This has never happened before the update.

  • Hi, when you say that your SOT (Screen on Time) has gone down, can you share the SOT after trying the below:

    1. Charge the battery to 100% & use as per your normal usage pattern

    2. When the battery strength reaches 10%, go to settings = Battery => Tap on the battery icon & share the graph

    3. settings => Battery => Check the screen & share the same.


    Please follow below steps may improve battery backup:

    1. Enable “Power saver” (Settings > Power management)

    2. Close apps that are not used (Bluetooth, WiFi, GPS, etc.)

    3. Adjust sleep time and brightness (Settings > Display)

    4. Boost memory when you see memory consumption is high with no app running,

    5. check for background running applications, stop/disable unwanted apps, you can manage apps from auto-start manager.
