I'm still getting awful battery life, specially when i'm not using the phone. I can't really tell why, i ran some tests to see if it's an app, but it seem like its not. My only guesses its that it might be double tap to wake, mobile data always active or pick up ambient display.
Can anyone confirm getting better battery life with those settings on?
WAKELOCK is always present in my battery usage during my sleep.

You're correct in it not being app related. In one of the previous builds (sometime in May) I disabled ambient display & tap to wake which greatly improved the standby time, I'm on the latest build now and standby time is still great. I didn't test to see which was the culprit, just disabled both as the screen kept turning on in my pocket. IIRC inconsistent/spotty mobile data can drain the battery a lot during sleep too, but I'm guessing ambient display & tap to wake are the main causes of drain.

I have a suggestion for you ,
yes I agree that since last 2 updates battery backup is little less .

what I did that I use my POCO F1's 18w charger to charge my phone when I don't need fast charging and from my experience whenever I use that charger my SOT and STANDBY time increases instantly .(proofs attached)

I have attached screenshot's of my accubattery app which I am using for about two months .
some settings of my phone
1) always on display > Enabled
2) Tap to wake > Enabled
3) Live wallpaper > Enabled
4) mobile data > Enabled (always)
5)GPS,wifi bluetooth> Enabled
6)almost all other special features are turned on .



This screenshot shows :
my avg battery usage
my screen of battery usage
my screen on battery usage
and full battery time estimates

and this is another screenshot :
my battery health based on 102 sessions
my battery wear (some high bars above 1.20 are of days where I used only fast charger)

and most important battery capacity graph to prove my point ,
if you observe properly there are two patterns in the graph .
one pattern shows battery percentage around 4500 mah (these dots are of 18w charger )
and another shows around 4000(these dots are of stock fast charger of Alioth )

so statistically speaking and as per my experience since last two months

using 18 w charger to charge phone regularly improves battery performance .

(yes it takes more time to charge but usually i charge my phone in the morning after waking up and takes around 90 minutes to full charge ,and yes sometimes in the emergency I use stock fast charger )

but in this case ,PE will be flash to the inactive slot which contains Android 11 firmware,so the current Android 12 firmware will not be used if copy-partitions zip which copy firmware from active slot to inactive slot is not flashed.
Or the rom will do this automatically?

I have two bugs with the latest buid (the one before the hotfix for statusbar)

1st one is sometimes when I unlock the phone the homescreen appear to be blank, nothing on the screen, I have to press home button in order to make everything come back.

2nd one and it`s the big one. When my headphones are activated, and pressing on the speaker icon in the volume slider, the system ui crash and brings me back to lockscreen.

Hi! With the newest update i have still the problem with my microfone (Alioth). It is very very quiet. If i record voicemails i have to shout. Telephone is ok.

There is no way to adjust it via Android-Settings. Does anyone have the same issue? Developers can you fix it with the next update?

go back to miui and make sure that microphone actually works.

if it works, then make sure you are on the firmware that dev recommended.

I was on the recommendet Firmware before i installed PixelRom. I think it can be solved by an Update. I'm the only one with such problems?

How many microfones has my phone? During normal calls via phone or messenger everything is fine. Videocalls too.

Recorded voicemails are not loud enough. I have to speak very loud. If i speak directly into the top of the phone it is ok but still a little quiet. Is there no Mic in the bottom?

    Hey guys.

    First off, I would like to thank you all for your feedback and kind words. Even though I haven't responded to any, I do read each and every one of your posts. It's cool to see that the March build has been downloaded ~4 thousand times. Your support motivates me to keep this ROM alive.

    Now I would like to give an update and clarify a few things. First off, it is important to note that this ROM is intended to be flashed on top of the latest build of MIUI 12.5. While some people have successfully flashed on top of MIUI 13, doing that sometimes causes weird issues, such as music/video not playing properly. The installation instructions and the original post will be updated to mention this soon. Firmware may be included in the ROM at a later date.

    Speaking of things that will be happening soon, the April build is almost ready. Or rather, builds, as PE Plus will also be released then. The April builds are focused on improving security and fixing bugs, including the bug that causes the device to not enter deep sleep, resulting in excessive idle drain when Ambient display is turned on. I'd like to thank @Barracuda77777 for suggesting a fix for this issue. I'll also make various other minor tweaks for a better user experience. Be patient, the wait for a new update is almost over.

    Lastly, if you're facing issues with this ROM, many of them can be fixed by reflashing MIUI 12.5 and then clean flashing the latest build according to the installation instructions, especially if you came from an older build.

    Um..yeah, that's about it. See ya soon.
