Go to charging settings and off the quick charge that would solve the problem of been hot. When it charges normally without fast charging enabled, the temperature is normal.
try off some non active apps

Yea, I'm using it too. It gets hot occasionally even while you're not charging it. But it'll definitely get hot when you're charging and your fast charge is enabled.

As for the battery not lasting two days..... I think the greatest antagonist of the battery is the FHD screen. I noticed that the screen being on takes a lot of battery.

On Saturday during laundry i was using the phone to listen to music for like an hour without putting on the screen, only 1% was used. I was really impressed. Then other trials showed me that the battery will not last as we want it to if we keep the screen on. Me. I'm a heavy user o. I can press my phone for 12 hours non stop. So, I need a 20,000mah powerbank! grin

I have carried out a complete review. Yes I noticed that too. When playing music alone, the phone can last over 2 days but when the screen is constantly on and data enabled, it last for a day on heavy usage.

There are many things i noticed on this lovely device that many people don't even know exist on this phone.

After using Gionee M6 for a while now, i have compiled a n unbiased review of the device. You can see it HERE



Wonderful review. Very detailed. But why is there no protective screen on Gionee M6 It's the BIGGEST DISADVANTAGE! And you ignored it. Gionee M6 should come with Corning Gorrila Glass 4! Atleast. Like every other flagship phone. It's a disappointment that I have to start buying tempered glass for a wonderful display as this. Just imagine S7 Edge users using a tempered glass. It still boils me! If I see who advised them against putting it. I'll slap the person. And I love gionee!

do a hard reset and the problem will be solved..cos if you take it to their office,it may take them 2 weeks to fix it for you.

I experienced d same thing on my m5 mini of 10 months old and I did a hard reset and the problem is over.
