    I took it off and left it largely untouched most of yesterday to see how it did with idle time-- very well with only about 3% drain over a course of about 10 hours. Been using it more today and it does drain quite a bit with screen on. Something to the tune of about -10 to -12% per hour while the screen is on. Watching occasional youtube videos and general web browsing, article reading.

    I could have probably squeezed it to 5 hours 30 minutes SoT if I had waited longer to put the charger on, but I know frequently going under 20% isn't good for the battery.

    So with that useage I got 30 hrs overall and 4hrs 34 min SoT. Considering the phone is 3 years old, are these good numbers?

    10% drain/hr while actively using the screen would mean 10 hours of screen-on time (which is pretty much unheard of for the Pixel 2 or 2 XL, unless the system is heavily tweaked). So in general, I'd say your battery life is good (which is impressive for a 3 year old phone!).

    That is quite good. My 2XL can get me through the day with about 5 hours SOT and about 20% battery left.

    I would say that is pretty good - way better than how my poor rated Pixel 2 functioned, towards the end.

    Running straight from the box pixel software and hardware . No tweaks or overclocking. I'm really liking how it handles standby time.

    Yours suffer from significant battery degredation?

    It has solid battery life for a long time, and showed a little bit of wear at the 16-18-month mark. But when it got to be 20+ months old, the battery life became significantly less efficient.

    Managed to squeeze this out of my 2 XL yesterday. Not bad for a 3 year old phone going on 4, right?
