Battery Drain while Roaming

Has anyone else noticed battery drain while Roaming? I go between Canada + US a lot and notice pretty bad battery drain while Roaming. Both Android system and Google photos claim to be using a disproportionate amount of battery.

My phone is Tmobile, completely vanilla. Not rooted or anything. Build number: NRD90M software version: H91810d

Anyone else notice this or know of a fix? I've looked around the forums for both

I have the same problem - US T-Mobile variant that's up to date and not rooted can't even make it half a day in the UK when roaming. The phone is constantly hot, but nothing shows in battery details as being responsible.
