    WiFi scanning maybe ON in your device. Please turn it off.

    Not necessarily. While there seems to be more issues reported on the a6000, there have been more sales of this version and a generally a more active community in India. So it's difficult to say.

    The battery drain issue does seem to be reported on the 6003 too, not sure about the heating issue.

    My battery drain went down a bit on my 6003 with 5.1.8. where mostly the screen seems to drain more battery than prior to the update. It's still not as hard as some people reported. I still have well over 7h sot but it's considerably less than on 5.1.7.

    Hope this answers some questions. This is just my take from reading the forum.

    posting a pic, should help. here what I want to point is when my phone was not being used or screen was locked there was constant awake cycle going on. which lead to heavy discharge at night, standby drain, so yesterday what I tried was :
    settings- advanced- then scroll down to recent app management there I chose - deep clear.
    now dose mode seems to be working. plus less standby drain. awake and screen on were not in sync. but still getting WhatsApp updates etc.

    other thing is been telling in WiFi settings turn off WiFi preference- WiFi scanning always turn that off.
    to reduce battery drain majorly. hope this helps as it did to me.
    sorry don't have before screen shots.
    but even before got 6 to 8 hours of sot. will post updates today... not bored at work

    before doing that see above posts for WiFi settings, read my tweak, turn off adaptive brightness, even Bluetooth, GPS,nfc when not in use. clear cache in settings-storage and clear cache after turning off the phone. you can search how to is easy give it a try..
