Check for updates and then do a hard reset with a fresh install , this can help. Another option it's to flash a cleaner MIUI based rom like Xiaomi.eu, One OS or a custom rom ( like Lineage OS and others) if you are confortable doing that. If you want something simple you can search on youtube for MIUI battlery optimization or something similar for some tips.

My previous phone was a Mi 9. I actually feel this lasts longer. But then again I am comparing it to an older phone with a deteriorated battery.

WQHD+, 120 hz. Is WQHD+ using a lot more battery? I have only owned this phone for a little more than a week so there is still a lot to learn.

Thats bad....

I came from poco f2 where i coudlnt kill the battery....now getting 5h solid...with 90hz at all the times. Try 90hz as well and see...it should give you more battery juice.
No root needed...just download setedit from store and chage use refresh rate to 90.... Before setting use 120hz...it will stick and survive reboot etc. For me it soes wonders

Go to developer options and click refresh rate...just to see

Steps to follow:
1. Set your refresh rate to 120hz
2 Download and install SetEdit from the Play Store or as an apk.
3. Switch to System Table
4. Find "user_refresh_rate" key and change value to 90
DONE!

It shoould change to 90 and it will stay like that...

Reboot and check rate again...it will be on 90

That's mean 20-30% at night is normal for this product?
Not really....you have rogue app or process in backround.i am loosing about 1% on hour...but all depends...
If you have wifi on or weak signal or bluetooth on...locations on..sync on....

Are you rooted?

If you are download betterbatterystats and it will show you what app is the culprit.

I use normal applications such as Telegram, WhatsApp, etc., which I did not have a problem with previous phones.
No, my phone is not rooted.

    Yes it supposed to be more battery efficient than the 865 but it isn't , at least for now. maybe they will tweak it in next few months. we will see. But you can do some tweaks also and you should get improvement. I see some people complaining about chrome using a lot of battery so I would uninstall it for the start and use some other browser , I can recommend kiwi with built in ad blocker and dark theme and is super light. But there's many other. Also today I was experimenting with dynamic wallpapers and I saw significant battery drain which was very noticeable so I just put black background. I never went to battery to follow what's going on , my device easily go through the day with normal use. I would say from 7 to 23 my battery goes from 100% to 10 - 30% depending on the use. For me I am very satisfied with the battery life.

    For all the people complaining about battery life I got 12+ hours of SOT today !
    I have done some battery testing today after applying some more tweaks to the device and I got really good results. Note that it is a rainy day here today and I am on auto brightness.
    AI image engine is turned all off. But it is still on 120Hz and WQHD.
    And I was using device mostly for watching movies, videos from YouTube, Netflix and some 4k movie I had on the device.
    Some of the tweaks that I applied I found here:

    Thanks @qvert for posting this.
    PS choose your tweaks wisely!
    And an advice on how to have a long healthy life for your battery:
    Charge your phone when it gets down to 10% - 20% up to 80% - 90%
    Use a smaller wattage charger , I use 5w as it doesn't heat up the battery at all. Only use fast charging when you are in need.

    Really disappointed of the battery life. Wasn't the 888 supposed to be more battery efficient than the 865?
    Light usage, not even 6h of SOT with 13% left. With indoor use (low brightness, wifi) , 120hz FHD+.
    Compared to my OnePlus 8T, i can get slightly more than 7h of SOT...

    What's your battery life ?

    I think that is the problem, try a clean install (install the apps manually). For me solved the problem.
    Before the clean install I had to charge the phone 2 times during the day (with about 3-4h of screen)
