    Battery saver > usage. Select "view items that can run in the background" and "show usage from last 24hrs".

    I'm in the same boat as you, although I have not experienced hot temperatures with the phone. I use only sim 1 (micro sim).

    I been trying to find the problem by turning off celular data and airplane mode location off and most of the apps turn off the background data in battery saver ..still no dice neither of those are the problem get about the same drain.. So is frustrating I'm thinking that maybe has to do with a non optimized firmware for the snapdragon 200 or maybe blu is to blame..i don't know maybe it doesn't go to sleep mode and all cores work 100% in standby mode maybe that's the heating problem source...I'm thinking too much ..

    Do you have Preview for developer ON? Any official update? What's your firmware and OS version?

    Taking a look at battery usage WhatsApp is hogging the battery. Also, when it reaches 4% cellphone will shut down.

    Did a hard reset, installed Skype, Facebook, FB messenger, Windows Central App, Twitter, Instagram; I decided not to install WhatsApp, battery lasted for 12 hrs and remained a 10% of battery. So I guess WhatsApp was hogging all the juice. I'll try to be without WhatsApp for a week and post results later.
