    Since the update last week my battery seems to run down faster but the odd quirk is my google now/ moto voice activates all by itself. Mostly in my vehicle via Bluetooth. " I didn't get that, please repeat". Today I answered by saying "turn off" and it did. Radio voice will activate. My phrase to turn on is not something that comes up in general conversation. Anyone else??

    Mine has been pretty well behaved in the Voice department. But you describe happens with my wife's MotoX Pure Edition. It's constantly picking up something and thinking she's trying to ask it something.

    THE BATTERY life is the most notable change. On at 7am and down to 30 per cent
    By 6pm. 28 % from cell standby alone. Never before marshmallow. Screen on less than 2 hours and 12%. I just don't understand!just had a thought, I have wifi calling turned on, think that could cause call standby use more battery?

    I just finished a FDR, I will report back if I get any improvement. This reduction is drastic.

    An FDR didn't help mine at all.

    FDR no help here either.actually it has gotten worse, went down 5% in less than 30 minutes and showed 7 hours remaining. I am taking it in to Verizon Corp store after Xmas. I had to charge yesterday evening to finish the day. Hate to say it but I was much better off with lollipop. Everything worked and with my normal use I could make a day and a half.

    For some reason the turbo is back to normal battery life, and I don't know how or why, just glad to have it back.

    First i cleared cache partition, no help, then FDR battery got worse, turned off and on a couple times. Then like I said it just started behaving again, can't explain. Been on since 7am, (about 10 hours) and at 71%, 21 hours left.

    Perhaps one or more apps went crazy, due to poor compatibility with Marshmallow? The spontaneous fix could have been just an app(s) update pushed on your phone after you upgraded to M.
