Xiaomi Mi 8
I am running A11 October build and I am experiencing the same battery drainage issue
Yeah i dont know about A11, i did not try Pixel experience with A11 cause i did not thought that it was worth going from miui 12 to pixel experience with android 11 even more when i need call recording and on pixel i would need to root and magisk hide and all that stuff cause of baking apps.

But on android 12, we have some big and nice changes, so i thought it was worth to give it a try and it seems a really good rom, really fast and fluid but the battery drainage is a big thing.

After I ran a system update - I noticed Magisk stopped allowing/giving Root.
So I downloaded the latest Pixel Exp and extracted Boot.img then put that on my phone then ran Magisk and patched it via Magisk. I then Boot into Recovery and installed the now patched file to Boot. The Ran Magsik and it installed root. Everything's now working.

On the original miui, the phone loses coverage or the internet does not work, I have installed this room and the coverage is ok, but the phone is restarting, can I do something about it? HELP HELP

2 months ago I had the screen in my mi 8 replaced with a non-original TFT so that the screen sticks out and maybe the antennas broke down, etc. The problem appeared only a week ago and is getting bigger

Clean install with format data, system, dalvic, cache. Magisk and ROM flashed via orange fox. No issues, no exaggerated battery drain.
Seems all to work fine after 24h.

Thanks for lifting my old smartphone over to Android 12!

for the records, I have solved the issue following the instructions in this page: https://www.xda-developers.com/android-11-google-photos-trash-fix/

long story short, to give google photo the role of system gallery I have issued this adb command:

adb shell cmd role add-role-holder android.app.role.SYSTEM_GALLERY com.google.android.apps.photos

And after a reboot (you know... when in doubt reboot...) pictures started showing up in photos.

    After using it for two weeks it works perfectly. In my opinion it is much better than miui. The battery life is at least the same or maybe a bit longer. I'm still looking for a way to mask the notch, but I can't do it. Possibly the option doesn't exist yet.

    if I not mistakenly remember, yes it can flashed on top of normal version, I tried in A10 PE at the time. maybe ask @GiaSen whether is flashed on top or not. oh and one more question for giasen, in download page stated dipper has december build for now, but donwload link is still from november??

    edit : the build date is its for A11, not for A12 hehe
    new build a12 will come in next days :)

    With Respect 🙌
    What is the 12 plus Version release date ?
    And Is there face unlock in this version?

    Rule 1, never ask for ETA, ever.

    Not in vanilla, yes in plus. Someone literally said this a few comments up (6 comments above yours.)

    0 respect if you ask me :cowboy:

    Thank you very much @GiaSen
    And how about the 12+ version

    Pixel Experience 12 Review
    ======================

    After 2 days of usage, I can say this ROM is very stable. almost everything works (not everything)
    battery life is a bit better than my previous from (EvoX 11)

    however, there's a thing missing/annoys me is

    first, let's go from the visual side :

    (-)The network status icon is overlapping, this is annoyed me a bit
    View attachment 5492925

    (-) Then notch hide/cutout hiding feature from the developer menu is not working properly in this version, activating it will make your display weird

    From the accessibility side :
    (+)tap to wake is available
    (-)double tap 2 open camera is working, but it will deactivate/locking screen first then open the camera on the second tap
    (-)no 3 finger swipe to screenshot, only volume down+pwr button to screenshot (maybe will be implemented on plus version?)
    (-) No IR face unlock yet (maybe in plus version?)
    (-) can't find a built-in screen recorder (must-have for me, because sick of crappy play store recorder that has bad quality and gives watermark)

    From the hardware side :
    (-) not all cameras detected (telephoto lens and IR front camera not detected by any software)
    (/) NFC is working but limited to checking the balance on my card, top-up a card, or anything to write a secure NFC card will not work. (but not a problem for me, since I rarely use that feature)

    Last is my request/suggestion :
    (*)The ambient display (AoD) is nice to have when the phone was charging. can you make feature to make it enable AOD when charging only?
    (*)phone lock fade animation is cool, but the animation start/end from/to the volume up button, not from power button like the pixel, can it be changed?

    Overall the whole phone experience is better than the previous version, thanks to google, PE dev, and of course @GiaSen for maintaining this for our device!! Very Appreciated man!!

    What I didn't try
    Magisk/Rooting things, Playing games (didn't play games on phone),
    Thanks for the review, will try to improve in next stable updates, we just got out of beta

    Haló kindly friend.. I'm on PE 11 with twrp and encrypted and planned to install PE 12. What step do you suggests since it's required aosp recovery?
    backup your data somewhere, flash pe12 from internal storage, format data, then go to fastboot and flash aosp recovery, and finally reboot the device

    April update up
    Changelog
    **Device Specific Changes:**
    - Etude kernel: Op.11 No.4
    * Linux 4.9.267
    * some upstream fixes of cpufreq_stats
    * fixed an issue where the frequency of big CPU cores is locked to a maximum of 1286MHz; the frequency of the big cluster is supposed to be restricted under 1286MHz if you battery is at or below 10%, as part of Qualcomm's thermal mitigation, but on previous versions, the frequency restriction was not removed after the phone is charged above 10%
    * default to suspend to RAM instead of s2idle (suspend to idle) for around a 25% reduction of idle battery drain
    * DO NOT use a third party kernel without proper support for Pixel thermal hal
    - Adjusted thermal configs to delay CPU frequency drop and smoothen the thermal throttling curve
    - Implemented dynamic thermal profile to work with Pixel thermal engine
    * the option is accessible under Settings/Battery/Optimization profiles (in case you are wondering, they had no effect on PE11 before this change)
    * thermal configs are dynamically loaded on a per-app basis
    * only the gaming profile is available besides the default profile, because other use cases are covered well enough by the default profile
    * the gaming profile maintains CPU frequency at even higher temperature compared the default profile
    * surface temperatures are measured by an infrared thermometer with matching emissivity to ensure they stay below the allowed maximum values of continuously held electronic devices in IEC 60950-1 (2005) standard
    * thermal profile is NOT a replacement for proper cooling. If you want better performance, you should cool your device. - Eliminated all SELinux neverallows and cleaned up unneeded or broken sepolicy
    * the latest Riru installation should work now. Note that if you use any mods like this, you will not receive support from me
    - Updated telephony blobs from pyxis 21.3.31 to fix random qtibus crashes in the background
    - Went back to Secure Element 1.0 to work with the updated blobs
    - Stopped enforcing s2idle from userspace init script so the kernel can suspend to RAM for better idle battery drain
    - Cleaned some unused config overlays
    **ROM update highlights:**
    - April security update
    - Fixed the issue of weather information not showing up in "At a glance" on the home screen of Pixel Launcher
    - Improved Face Unlock. The issue of front camera being occupied should happen less frequently. Let me know if you still encounter it - Devices will only use dark boot animation from now on
    - Translation updates
