    Hello,


    I have never had this issue until about 3 weeks ago. Normally I would not worry that I'm connected to WiFi, but since the WiFi where I work its awful and there is so many routers to select from its killing my battery. When I turn it off in my mobile settings, it just turns on. It's really bothering. Any ideas?

    I do not have that issue, but if I open to use wifi, it remains on, as discovered in the extended battery usage graph, even later I have switched off. To take it to switch off properly I Power Off and Restart phone.

    Having Wifi turned on by itself causes the battery to drain by itself? I didn't know that. Is it just this phone or all phones have the capability to do that?

    I think it might be a software issue, you might want to factory reset your phone and check if it still does that, if it does it might be a hardware problem or recognition of WiFi, such things are actually rare but they might happen.
