When you sleep, does your phone sleep, or does it stay up all night and crunch 1s and 0s? Rate this thread to express how you deem the speed at which the Google Pixel 3's battery drains under standby conditions. A higher rating indicates that when the phone is not in use, the battery drains minimally.

Then, drop a comment if you have anything to add!

AccuBattery is reporting 3.5%/h average battery use with screen off, measured with a total of 24h of screen off (non consecutive)

Not impressed

Standby is terrible to be honest. Drains almost 1 - 1.5% per hour just lying on table. Pixel 2 used to drain 0.5 to 0.75% in an hour

I get usually 0.6% / hour overnight drain. I'll wake up with about 95%. Phone face down with AOD so it goes off. Once in a while an app will keep the phone awake unbeknownst to me until the morning. Either I restart or force close the app and it goes away. If you're getting higher drain than that you should check your apps keeping the phone awake with screen off. BBS is really good for that.

If you have AOD on that sounds about right.

You need to figure out what is keeping the phone awake then. I tweaked my wife's 3 yesterday and she go 0.4% / hr last night and I only got 0.6% / hr. I have a little more running on mine though, sync wise. AOD / w/face down to turn it off.

How do you tweak?

First off I turned off adaptive battery. Then I removed MIPS and MVS completely. Deleted an unneeded app that gave a bunch of partial wakelocks and alarms. Rebooted and voila 1.8% / hour down to 0.4% overnight drain.

Wow. That's even worse than I expected. That's must be some misbehaving app. With a 2915mAh battery I think about 0.6% per hour with AOD off. With AOD on I'd expect like 1.25% per hour.

Thought Adaptive battery was meant to help!?
