Since the December update, I've got massive battery drain. The latest session for accubattery has only 11% deep sleep while the screen is off. 35% battery usage over 6 hours with 46m SOT. Has the adaptive battery reset? Any ideas please?

I did mine OTA, would factory reset do it? I think the fault is mobile network standby, used 27%
When I first got the phone I had an issue like that. Try turning the phone off (not reboot) and then powering on after a minute or so. When I did that last build it built cache or did something different and the issue went away.

I'd try that before factory resetting.

My last post was 24 minutes ago and I’ve dropped 3% battery in that time with the screen off and phone on standby.

I still don't have the update and now I am worried. Does anyone not have a battery issue?

I had battery drain after the update but it appears to be network/signal related. Always get 4G in my home but now only get H. Turning off WiFi left my phone with no mobile signal but seems to fixed with a couple of reboots. Signal is definitely no where as good.

    Ok think I have found the culprit, mobile network standby, 27% from the pixel battery app. Any ideas what I can do please?
    There have been some reports on Reddit of decreased reception in areas it was good before. Might be switching often between 5G and LTE or lower .

    I don't. Accubattery reports 5.4%/h with screen on and 1.0%/h with screen off, pretty much the same as before the update.
