After upgrading to Android 6 some users experience an increased battery drain. For some this goes away after a few days. If it stays and either Wifi or Google Maps show as the main culprit in the battery stats then you suffer the issue described in this topic.
Fairphone Bug Status: Rejected
This issue was reported as Issue #16 in the official bug tracker, but was rejected as it seems to be a known Android 6 bug that can only be fixed by Android developers.

Since I have updated OS to Android 6, my battery life decreased dramatically. Do any of you have similar issues and/or know what the cause is and how to fix it?
I had the same problem, the battery was draining very fast after the update. It was a bit alarming but I read this thread and waited a few days. The battery recalibration didn’t seem to help, but on about day 4 the battery drain just stopped and went back to normal.
My text messaging app had disappeared too. I think I reinstalled the
"messages" app and all of my messages were still there (I honestly can’t
remember if I reinstalled it or just found the app in the device and put a
shortcut on the home screen) It works fine again.
I have had my Fairphone 2 since March. It is running much better on the new Android software - before it was glitchy and kept rebooting. However, over the past few days the batter life has deteriorated significantly. With average use (mainly Whatsapp and Chrome - connected to wifi), the battery lasts a mere 5-6 hours. I am not a heavy duty user at all, and I am using it the same amount as before and didn’t have this problem. Can anyone help?!
When listing the most consuming apps, selecting wifi will display more infos.
Unfortunately I can’t remember how I then reached the screen when we can deselect the usage of wifi by apps trying to get location info EVEN when wifi is switched off, but it could be worth trying to turn off this option.
You can use the search function of the settings. Type “Search” ( I hope this is the right keyword in English, in German it’s “Suche”) and you will be able to get there.
Sadly this didn’t change anything for me…
