Used 2% overnight (9h23m) with everthing enabled, very awesome!

But when using the phone a lot (gps navigation etc) I got like 4h SOT and can not even use it a half day...

I forgot to take a screenshot, but my first result with the phone was fantastic.

I used the phone with mixed usage (Tapatalk, chrome, whatsapp, sms, calls, etc), 1 hour and half of Pokemon GO, 50mins of GPS (Waze), brightness almost always 50% or more, i put it to charge with 19% and i was with 4h:52mins of SoT, and 38hours of usage in total, amazing result!! With my previous S8 it was not even close to this value.

With 4k mah battery capacity only merely can get 6hr sot? Bad battery design.

You've never played Pokemon Go, else you'd know with an hour and half of that over 38hrs total use this is a very good result. Presuming it's ballpark similar to my Mate 10 the battery life here will be superb, definitely leading the way over all other flagships for normal mixed use.

You can't be serious right?! Pokemon GO uses Location + Data connection, and i've played the game ONE HOUR AND HALF, and navigation GPS (Waze) for 50mins wich again uses location and data at the same time to work, besides all other usage i did with him, i'm not a light user i had to charge my S8 every single day and most of the times i had to charge it at middle of the day.

I believe Mate 10 Pro should be a bit better than P20 Pro, but it's still a huge beast on battery life.

First charge. Happy camper. Really good battery life.

Stats from when the battery was at 43%. Screenshot_20180418-110839.jpgScreenshot_20180418-110921.jpgScreenshot_20180418-110847.jpg

I've been generally impressed. I'd say it just about offers genuine 2 day battery life on moderate use. I plug it in most nights at around 50%.

Doesn't last more than a day...

I don't consider myself a heavy user but the P20 Pro doesn't really make it through the day. With 100% at 8am, wifi on for most part of the day, no bluetooth, rarely some gps, taking a few photos, checking Instagram and Facebook every hour or so, some music streaming not more than an hour, I barely have 30% left at 8pm. I'm kinda disappointed to be honest! I'll have to run some tests to see if my battery is okay...

    Battery life does improve!

    Hi!
    When I first got my p20 pro, I was concerned about the battery life. I was looking through this and trying the suggested actions, like factory reset etc. I was only JUST getting 6 hours SOT with all apps set to manual, black interface and low screen brightness. When the phone was idle though the battery would hardly drop, if at all which is great over night but it was dropping fast while in use. This is when I done the factory reset and didn't improve. I saw others saying it improves over time, so I thought I'd wait it out. 2 weeks after the reset I was hitting 7 hours SOT. And now I'm getting 8 hours SOT.
    So an overall increase of 2 hours. There's been loads of times where I've not charged it over night, taken it out on 80% and still lasted me well before bedtime and could easily roll over again next day (light/moderate usage day), but that would really be pushing it. I'm a heavy user, this 8 hour SOT is from a full day of near enough being on it constantly on Instagram and Facebook. I hope this helps anyone that was worried like me about the battery, and put some minds at rest before thinking they've been given a dud phone.
