Question Mediocre Battery life / Screen on Time with Miui 12.0.17

I got my MI 11 last Friday (6 days now) / and am getting about 6,5-7 SOT with 60Hz, Dark Mode, FHD+ and 0 gaming.

I primarily use it for Spotify, Twitter, Chrome Browser, Reddit, Facebook etc. so nothing too demanding. Nothing is significantly high in the battery stats too.

This is way worse than on my Mate 20 Pro which I had before.

Is the experience with 12.5 better? What are your opinions/experiences? I am honestly thinking about selling it and getting back to the Mate 20 Pro :/

Thanks guys, have a good day!

xiaomi.eu is always with worse battery life than stock. That's because a lot of MIUI strict battery control policies are disabled by default because users find it hard to configure them properly per-app.
