It's amazing how much we actually use our phones in a given day, especially when we watch "videos"! Rate this thread to express how many hours of screen-on time you can get on the before depleting the battery.

Then, drop a comment if you have anything to add!

Here are my sot 80% on wifi other 20% on 3g h+ because i have crappy 4g signal where i live, also screen brigthness is on auto, location is off (i turn it on when needed),sync is always on. Phone is k20pro 8gb/128gb running latest miui 10.3.11 Full stock and not rooted. This is light usage and still 20% left

I would average 10 hours, but I never charge to 100% or let it get under 20%. I keep it under 80% and it rarely gets under 40% during the day.

Mine was from K20 Pro Global Stock(India) It was just the third reboot after Installing all the apps and all the Data transfer..
I have removed most of the MiUi bloatware using Xiaomi ADB Fastboot tools. Don't have any apps that i don't need. (mivideo, Mi Browser etc)
And yes I don't have facebook in it..

Anyone know how to decrease the brightness of Ambient display/aod... I'd like to use it, but it's too bright and I'm afraid it will drain the battery quicker..

Battery drain due to ambient display is minimal... I have had it on since day 1, and have not noticed any noticeable drain due to ambient display. As long as you have auto brightness on, the ambient display brightness is also under control of auto brightness

I've just found out that 10.3.16 reduce a lot of standby draining. Whoever still on 10.3.8 or lower should definitely update...
