    Hello, I have bought brand new homtom ht16 smartphone, it runs on android 6. when it is on a standby mode battery keeps well (it only drops by no more than 20% during the 24h), but when the cellphone is awake (even if Im not using any software or programs) the battery is dropping down by 1% every single minute. literally. what could be the problem?

    “brand new" with Android 6? Is it new old stock(NOS) or something? Now I expect either Android 8 or 9 on new phones and tablets.

    Its having battery drain like that on a supposedly new device, could be it's faulty? Have you tried resetting it? Suggest you return it for replacement or refund. Homtom phones been cheapo, they often do have quality and reliability issues.
