I had problems with various recent updates. I rolled back to global stable 9.2.2.0 and it's much better. I couldn't charge beyond about 78% and had to charge twice a day before. Am using redmi note 4 mtk

Heating up while charging and using energy idling is to be expected, that's just how it works.

Now, there are limits in place to prevent overheating, the SoC throttles and the phone charges slower when temperatures are that high (whether those limits are too high or not is another matter though).

When facing quick battery drain the usual suspects are either something keeping the phone awake or using resources in the background, or aging batteries.

Factory resetting the phone can help sometimes, using apps like GSam Battery Monitor to check the things consuming more energy, or AccuBattery to approximate the current battery capacity, could help you locate the source of the problem.

No ...

Nonsens! the thing is that the device is so hot that you cant even touch it. an bartery goes to 0 in few ours without any system or app activity. There is a huge problem with a Rom as i can undersrand. for ex. i do not have even excess to update menu after last 9.6.1 update. and the same problems with cgarge, bettery etc.

Like I said, either something is keeping awake the phone or there's a problem with the battery.

If your battery depletes quickly and you know there's little background activity I'd say the problem lies with the battery. As they age their internal resistances increase, leading to higher temperatures and degraded performance. If they've built up enough internal resistance that they can no longer supply a useful amount of power, they fail and need to be replaced.

What temperature does your phone get to? If you want to see a temperature graph over time Simple Battery Graph may be of help.
