Hi anyone in OZ.

I have a Pixel 6 Pro on Telstra, and getting extreme network standby drain, by far the biggest % of total drain we are talking 1/4 to 1/2 the battery usage. Also noticing rubbish network signals and stability. To be fair on the phone my Pixel 4XL had signal issues on the train from Brisbane CBD to South side suburbs.

Anyone else on Telstra experiencing the same?

Anyone with other networks experencing the same, especially with 5G?

Trying to determine if my phone is a dud.

Interestingly my old Pixel 4XL doing the same as it was previously only on WIFI no mobile now lasts at least 2-3 days on the battery charge. Prior to sim being removed was lucky to last a full day.

I am with Boost and I do see the mobile standby goes up if the phone is on idle. Like overnight, I can see in the two hour intervals that it's at 50%, but my standby drain is around 5% over 8 to 9 hours which is in line with my other phones in the past. This is with wifi on all night.

I would say the usage for the mobile standby is high because it's always connected to a network and that costs energy. I haven't done this but if you put it on airplane mode, the mobile standby should go to zero and probably the device idle or wifi will go up.

I'm with Belong, and I'm also getting a battery drain. 10-11 percent overnight. Mobile network standby is too high.

I have terrible drain simialr to everyone else. Standby drain is horrendous on wifi. Around 50% deep sleep percentage when using the phone regularly. overnight deep sleep is good and drains about 1% an hr. On boost mobile. Today's update fixed jack all

No I am on .48 release date 2021-09-30.
I read a post about a new carrier services release today , which I updated to today straight after it updated the signal jumped up. Battery drain seems to be slightly better, but still garbage. Was hoping the december update would fix some issues, but definately didn't.Think I might take this phone back to Telstra for replacement

I turned off adaptive connectivity in network and internet settings, and mobile data always active in developers options. No drain.
Yeah I had both of these settings enabled as well after reading some others feedback some time back, still extreme battery drain, now about 40%, so the carrier update helps signal strength but seems to make the drain worse.
