I got my first pixel about 1 month ago and I have to say that it has the best battery life of any smartphone I have used. It is even better than the LG V30s and V50 which i think had great battery life. It is definitely better than my S21 5G (exynos). It is very efficient during use and really awesome in standby. However, I am not rooted and I have disabled 5G and AOD. I attached some screenshots. Note that I was on wifi about 85% of the time and my usage won't be the same as yours. But this is just to give an indication of what could be achieved with the pixel 6a.

I gave up as I will be going out soon and I need the phone to be charged. it has been at 6% for about 2 hours and i don't even have it in battery saver mode and I still have auto brightness by default. I am loving this battery life.

If you root, with various tweaks you can squeeze approx. 15-20+% more outta it. GMS is a freakin' hog...you can tame it plus force numerous other system apps to doze muuch sooner. That's just a few. 😉

So, if I understand battery on 6a is now better than average?
How about heat management, does the phone tend to get warm or hot on basic tasks or prolonged use?
