Well, it's not about the process of unlocking and rooting the phone, but just the legal side.
I would not get any service for free if I unlocked it.

I rooted every phone I had but as my Pixel is new I will wait till I'm sure that there are no hardware problems occurring.

Do you mean you applied that after special mode "Battery Saver" as additions to it? That standard mode was enough for me to keep my battery charge mostly over 50% after full day.

Yep, that's what I ment. I identified already one of the drainers - my Openvpn client is consuming quite a lot. After switching to Blockada (as AdBlocker) battery consumption is quite okay.
But let's see what can be achieved by further optimization.

Try to use the private DNS setting instead, I figured this would save even more battery than a locally hosted VPN

I will try, but one after the other. Otherwise I don't know what was a good setting.

Seems like I found descent settings to make battery last longer. So let's see how this turns out during the week (this is my normal use case - mail, some music, business stuff, photos; I don't play!).
I'll let u know what I did, so maybe others can profit as well.

While in standby/mails/some browsing the drain is descent. While listening to some music using BT the drain is quite visible as you can see.

LOL - sorry, maybe misleading. Yes, I used it for reading mail, some websites. So maybe I should have written moderate use.
