Battery seems to be getting much much better as I'm using the phone, phone was on 100% at half 6 this morning and now it's 8 at night with 37% that's with mobile data on all day no WiFi until I took the screenshot I had it turned on

I have had the phone for a week now and I must say battery life has been great for me, I have an average usage with 50% WiFI and 50% 4G LTE, i have been getting 5-7 hours of SoT on a daily basis. The variance between 5-7 is normal as it adjusts on total battery time. On days where i dont use the screen much, the battery extends to the next day as the screen has been off majority of the time. But on days where i reach 7h of SoT, the battery dies out by the time i sleep.

Not on my 6pro. Many people also reported that they don't have a high battery consumption on the network standby. Mine ranges from 2-10%. With 5G disabled.

My batt life seems to be getting better with use as well.

Still on November .36, rooted, Despair Kernel, 5G active, WiFi scanning off, AOD on, not much tweaked yet.

Got this SOT the end of November. I'm happy and love my P6P!

Big test for mine yesterday coming back from Scotland. Off charge at 7am and then an 8 hour coach ride with mixed no signal, 2G, 3G, 4G and 5G coverage, i watched a 2 hour film, read flipboard, used Facebook, used twitter, sent messages via Signal, sent messages via Google Messages, listened to some music using Poweramp, got home posted loads of photos on social media (finally back on Wi-Fi) and at 9pm last night i had 40% left and had to put it on charge for the December update.

Mine is fully stock, Wi-Fi left on, Bluetooth is on for Fitbit connectivity and Covid tracing, NFC is on, AOD off.

The longest SoT I've had was just yesterday, with close to 13hrs. I was mainly on wifi doing a bunch of web surfing and chat.

I know there's been some questions of, who uses their phone to browse websites all day, and I can be one of those people lol.

Other times my battery usage varies greatly depending on how much I charge and use it. I was able to get around 8.5hrs just from an 85% charge with mixed usage of wifi and cellular.

That's about what I get too, 300 - 400 mAh. Also overnight I get at least 93% deep sleep if not more. Something is keeping your phone awake while you are doing nothing so I don't believe it's a bad phone or battery. It's a bad app or misconfiguration. You need to find what that is and correct it.

Yes i believe it is something to do with an app but cant seem to narrow it down to which one. On airplane mode it instantly goes to deep sleep. Deep sleep is good overnight. At around 91 percent but during the day when im checking my phone every 10-15mins i get 40-50percent deep sleep. Brightness is at 70 percent usually and screen on around 600-700mah. No 5g enabled on wifi.

Same how are people's drain with the phone so low. I phone has similar deep sleep too. I don't get how people are getting 6-8 SOT. Even updating to the December didn't seem to help munch.

I use GSam Battery monitor to see which apps are high drainage, and then if necessary I kill those specific apps since they're probably stuck running in the background somehow.

6hrs SoT isn't much depending on how much battery you have. You have a pretty high drainage with the screen off of about 2% idle drain an hour. Ideally it should be about 0.5 - 0.7% hr. Anything higher will cause your battery to drop pretty fast, which is likely the result of some app or unoptimized battery usage in the background. I would do some digging to see what's causing this and it should improve your overall usage.

    You could be right, but besides that I'm not sure what could be causing my battery life issue. Even got a new sim card to test out to see if it makes a difference.
    Absolutely not saying some people aren't having issues for some reason, just that chasing after reducing that figure is not the answer. And it can be high or low and the battery life be exactly the same.

    You need to find what is draining the battery without paying attention to the mobile standby figure, it looks like a red herring as to the cause.

    That's awesome! Do you have 5G enabled or is it available in your area?

    5g drains my battery quicker. hence why I disabled it.

    Sadly Samsung offers more in terms of customization than Google does. I found Samsung to be decent when I first used their S9, I believe it was. I wouldn't mind trying their next phone if Google can't get their priorities right lol. Then again, I think Samsung locks the bootloader or is harder to root in general, I could be wrong though.
    I know with the nexus 6 and 6p I would root and run custom Roms and I had some friends that developed kernels so I would use those. But since Google came out with the Pixel lines, I didn't need to do that anymore.

    I've had the first one plus phone and sent it back when it first came out because it had yellow tint on the screen. Haven't tried them again.

    My friend has a note 20 ultra that he has had for a year and he was impressed with my Pixel 6 Pro despite me telling him battery is not as good. He says after 1 year his phone lags a little and has weird UI hiccups and smoothness issues that he didn't experience when he used to have a Pixel.

    My brother also had Pixels but this year went to an Iphone 13 Pro max. He loves it and tells me he only charges it every other day. I have too many Google products and I can never get used to iOS despite my girlfriend and my whole family are on it. Its just too plain for me even though it works wonderfully.
