I found out why my mobile drained crazy and overheated what was at first not my problem. I found other reviews lying but I can find certain applications causing them but it is not a common mobile problem. It is caused because those applications are not meant to be running smooth on XA. For example I have been playing a lot of SimCity Online, while I am Offline no overheating and drains slowly, while Online it goes down more than just 20% per 1 hour and gets to 34°C (hot), once I played so long I got to 39°C (very hot) so I had to stop for a moment. Besides that I think SimCity is running on the background, my antivirus program told me it is draining 14% which on that day did, but today for example my battery took only 1% during 8 hours so I am not sure why my battery went so quickly down. But I am sure that online gaming is not recommended, otherwise you will have to recharge every day, offline gaming is different subject where you have plenty on screen time. Watching YouTube, listening music and browsing web is at the similar draining level, no overheating issue. The big problem is installing (especially updates), while I installed few games it was OK, installing updates caused overheating and it took just 10 minutes while downloading did not cause it. So I assume mobile is going to its limit while performing fast, but if you do not maximize its performance and go easy on it, it will drain like normal phone and will give you at least 2 days on screen. Do not pressure it with online stuff and high brightness, those two things take the most of the battery.

So I suggest put a tempered glass or protective layer to your devices.
