It has been a few days since I upgraded my Pixel 2. Battery life is noticably worse, maybe 20-30% more battery drain in a day than what I saw in Oreo.

I notice the issue as well. I did factory reset after update it's been a week. I was on beta and started noticing battery issues in the first beta and throughout. I decided to install Accubattery to track my battery usage and ended up with a result.

My phone states the battery is in good condition but this app says otherwise. I guess it's time to change the battery along with cracked screen!

i'm curious if my battery is shot as well... Seems like after I purchased my used Pixel.. the battery is not as lasting as I hoped for the smaller pixel phone... I may try one of those battery testing apps to see if it will tell me its current health..

I normally welcome up updates, but this update screwed up my battery life so bad. I mean everything was perfect until the update. Now the battery drains so fast I can watch the percentage count down like a timer and now when the battery gets anywhere from 15-40% the phone will just shut down.

I would like to go back to oreo, but it's such a pain in the ass having to back everything up and flash a ROM considering I haven't done that since before I bought the pixel

I think I found an Draining App/Setting

I disable the RCS Service on my Phone. It can be found under Messages >> 3 dot Menu >> Settings >> broadcast News. Disable it.

And then Bluetooth and WiFi scan disable.

Try BetterBatteryStats. People in that thread spend their free time analyzing logs to tell you what's eating up all your battery life.

Wife's Pixel began running battery down too quickly after Pi update. Stock, not rooted.

Upgraded Wify to Pixel3, reset Pixel to default, performed latest October 18 update gave it to Son. Son reports 100% to about 50% battery in just over an hour. Hope Google fixes this before they abandon Pixel updates (EOL).
I hope this isn't Google's kiss of death for the Pixel OG:
Google will guarantee software updates through October of 2018 (no guaranteed major updates after Oct18, Security updates should continue for another year).
