Hello guys, I want to tell you about the adjustments that I have made to my Xiaomi 11T Pro and that have improved battery consumption, keeping the refresh rate of the screen at 120Hz. I would appreciate if you could tell me how it went. Greetings.
1.- DEACTIVATE AUTOMATIC UPDATES.
In this way we will avoid that the mobile is constantly looking for updates and therefore consuming battery.
1.1- We go to the Play Store and in Settings / General / Update applications automatically, we mark not update applications automatically.
1.2- Once this is done, we go to the Miui updates. We follow the route Settings / About the phone, click on the number 12 that is in the upper left as when we want to update
and then in the three points that appear in the upper right, we go to the update settings option and deactivate download automatically.
2.- DEACTIVATE THE WIFI ASSISTANT.
This option allows the mobile to automatically change the network, without us having to be aware of it, but it uses the battery unnecessarily. We are going to configure it to do it manually.
We follow the path Adjust / Wifi / Wi-Fi Assistant, enter and deactivate the option to select the best networks automatically.
3.- DEACTIVATE THE GAME TURBO.
This option is aimed at those users who do not use the phone to play, if so, deactivate it because it uses a lot of battery. I do not play much, rather little, even so I do not have it deactivated.
We go to Settings and in the search bar type game turbo. Mark the 2nd option that of Game Turbo Security, it will take you to the app, once inside, mark options that are next to the + sign, at the top right. Once inside, uncheck the Game Turbo option, it is the first.
4.-DEACTIVATE THE PRINTING SERVICES.
We have these services to connect to printers active all the time and the phone will be constantly looking for printers so that we can connect.
We go to Settings and at the top in the search bar we will write print. Click on the only option that comes out, now click on System printing services, once inside we will deactivate it. We will see that on the screen below, we have a blue bar with a text that says looking for printers in this way we prevent it from constantly searching.
I have removed the following but it depends on each one, they could remove more.
Android Accessibility Suite
Market Feedback Agent

OTHER ADDITIONAL SETTINGS.
Let's go Developer Options.
Registry Buffer Size, I have it set to 1 mega.
Window animation level / Transitions animation level / Transition duration level. All three are by default at 1x, lower them to 0.5x.
Display: Manual brightness, almost full, in dark mode
Screen / Color scheme in Vivid.
Yup, pretty much disappointed with the Battery performance compared to my Redmi K30 Pro Zoom.
It barely gets a 7hr SOT and it have a 5000mah Battery. My K30 pro only has 4700mah and it easily gets a 7hr SOT with 10 to 15% remaining battery.
I'm waiting for an EU Rom for ViLi as they do a good job at optimizing their roms.
Closing background apps is unnecessary due to Doze mode and Xiaomi battery saving, as background apps are effectively frozen most of the time on Android. Having them opened then closed and unloaded from memory just means when you need them again they have to be loaded and re-initialised which increases power consumption as it takes more work to load an app than to bring one from the background to foreground. By all means give it a go, but generally it is pointless unless the app is misbehaving, but most are not these days.
Looking at the screen shot, it would seem a lot of battery was used by playing Mimicry which would use quite a bit of processing power plus power for the screen at 120Hz. It doesn't look too bad to me.
