Battery drops quickly

I both Pixel 1.5 years ago and now the battery cannot keep the charge as before.
On flight mode overnight it may drop by 20% vs 5% months ago.
My Nexus started this issue after 4 years. Are the batteries getting bad quality with new Google phones or I bough a phone sitting 2 years in same store.
Is there a way to find out when was a battery made.

its the same with literally every battery ever made, they all worsen over time. however my battery in my pixel would be roughly 3 years old and i lose almost nothing on standby so you may have an app draining your battery during standby.

Mine was doing the same thing. I think I found the problem to be Outlook. The phone would get real hot just sitting idle. My battery would only last about 4 hours. After weeks of disabling various apps, outlook seemed to be the culprit. Now, I go into settings / apps & notifications and force stop the app. I just have to manually check my email and when done, force stop outlook again. Kind of a pain. I occasionally leave outlook running and sure enough, phone runs hot and battery drain.
