    I tried my sim in another phone and in 8 hours overnight with data on the battery dropped 2% . In 3 hours of not using my 20 pro with data on and screen of the battery dropped 5%

    The cell data signal indicator, referred to as 'how many bars do you have'.
    If at night you place your phone in a poor reception area, as stated above, the poor signal will cause the device to devote more energy to maintain its connection.

    To check your cell signal strength, use LTE Discovery. Signal bars are nice, but they're arbitrary. LTE Discovery will give you a numeric signal strength that means the same thing all the time on all phones. Just let us know the number in LTE (if you don't see it, tap "Signals" on the top bar). Under 100 is great. 100-about 110 is usable. 110-about 117 is weak. Under 117 (or number higher than 117) is a bad signal.
