If there is something that I am so curious about then it is definitely my Android Phone. The reason why I Love Android so much is because of the flexibility if offers and the vast number of features and more important, almost you can find app for everything. These days Android Phones become so powerful that we can do almost everything without needing computer and PC. The main thing that surprises me the most is the RAM and Camera.

With all these on side, most of the users are unhappy on the other side just because they are facing heating and battery draining issues with their Android Phones. So, for those who are facing battery draining issues and heating issues with their handsets I am giving here the best tips to improve battery life and how to reduce heating issues with Android Marshmallow 6.0 and Android Lollipop 5.0 devices.
How to fix Battery Draining issues in Android Marshmallow 6.0
Normally some issues will arise after every major android update because of some compatibility issues. It doesn’t mean that every update brings issues. In most of the cases the android development team will test for every single bug and releases a major update. If users raise any issues in the update then they will again release bug fixing updates as minor updates. As far as I believe, no major update will cause battery draining issues and heating issues. Here I will tell you some tips to avoid heating issues and battery draining issues with Android Lollipop 5.0 and Marshmallow 6.0. I hope that these below tips may not completely disappear your issues but I am sure that these tips will reduce the intensity of your heating and battery draining issues.
Remove/Update apps draining your Battery
There may be some cases that the apps developed for KitKat may not work well for Lollipop and Marshmallow so in that cases that app will misbehave for sure. You need to disable or uninstall that rouge app which is actually hogging your battery. To explore that is pretty easy as Lollipop and Marshmallow have the best battery monitoring tool under Battery Section in Settings. This tool will monitors the battery usage of all apps and Android system. Ofcourse the top battery drainer is your Android screen.
You can just tap on the app that is utilizing more battery and tap on Force Stop button to stop that app. You cannot simply do that for default apps from here, for default apps you need to go to Settings->Apps (Application Manager) -> Select the app and disable or uninstall it from here (you cannot uninstall default apps as you don’t have permissions to do that).

Switch to safe mode
Many times you will keep your phone idle may be during night times or if you are in office or in journey, during that times it is better to keep your phone in safe mode which will disable all third party apps and thus reducing the battery draining issues.
You can also do one more thing before uninstalling or disabling the incompatible apps, you can try updating the app if available. Sometimes the updated versions of the apps might be compatible with the higher versions of Android.
Reboot your Android Phones at regular intervals
As android is based on Linux OS and as a techie I know that some zombie processes will be running because of app crashes etc. To free up RAM and kill all the orphan processes a reboot will help better and keeps the phones healthy and therefore the battery life will be enhanced.
I personally suggest you to poweroff your phone and restart it atleast once a week to keep your phone and battery healthy. You will see the change for sure.
Disable Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, GPS and Mobile Data if not used
Most of the times we forget to disable the services which we have started like Bluetooth, Mobile data, Locations etc. They will continue to use the battery even if you are not using those services. So, the best way to save battery draining is take care of disabling the services after the use. GPS will use considerable amount of battery as it need to communicate with the Global Positioning system satellite.
You might be knowing that Mobile Data is the largest consumer of battery and it is the reason for the heating issues. So, turn off your mobile data whenever not required.
Use Airplane mode/flight mode if the signal is poor
This is really an interesting fact that each and every one should know. If signal strength is poor then your device will be busy in search of signal or network and also it really require large amount of charge to communicate to the base station tower. So, it’s better to switch into flight mode if you are at poor network locations.
This will significantly improves your battery life and helps to sustain for more hours. You can try this, your phone will heat up if you are at poor network locations.
Reduce Screen brightness
Screen brightness really matters when concerned about battery life. As most part of your battery will be consumed by the screen, you need to be very selective to choose when to increase the brightness and when to reduce it.
Keep your Android mobile up-to-date
Updating to the bug fixer versions solves almost all the problems after every major update. Considering the user issues and errors, Google release patches to fix the bugs and unstable features. So, it is highly recommended to keep your phones always up-to-date.
These are some of the tips that you can follow to increase the battery life of your Android phone. It all matters if you are concerned about the lifetime of battery and lifetime of your Android device. In particular use the safe mode feature and it will be sufficient to boost up the battery life like anything. So, if you like these tips and find useful, please share this.
