    That's what my wife called it: Google Play Services. I'd now suggest that it's just Google Services.

    Battery life had been less than spectacular for a new phone. I am usually a pretty battery intensive user and always have lots of screen up time. But every other phone I've had has made it 6-12 months before showing signs of age. In fact, my 2 year old Moto Turbo 2 would last a good 8 hours. Now, same use on the Pixel 2 and I'm lucky to get 8 hours.

    I just don't get it! How can the same use have the same result on a new phone?

    i charged my pixel 2 to 100%, all of the usage is on a strong wifi signal. im at 40% brightness and ive only gotten 4 hours and 29 minutes of screen usage with the battery at 26% left.

    38% screen, 6% android system, 4% Android OS, 2 % for facebook,words with friends, phone idle, instagram, 1 % for mobile network standby and tinder.

    what gives? ive seen people get over 8 hours of screen usage on their pixel 2s.

    8hrs on a fairly regular basis for me on my 2XL.
    My screen is never showing that much % of usage though on mine, perhaps it's the screen settings? I am using Lux Dash to control brightness on mine.

    So after a good month of using the P2 (small) I can safely say it is only a one day phone. Getting between 5hrs 30mins and 4:30 on a regular basis.

    Charger usually goes in around 7pm. Slightly annoying as I expected more going from the reviews, maybe with hindsight the XL was a better buy.

    Is that screen or total time?

    Wow, battery has been doing great but last night I used 24% overnite. I had been using 7%. Not sure what is going on. I did download and set up a different launcher but according to my battery stats it used next to nothing and the big draw is CPU at 20%. CPU had been using about 4% each night. Maybe I need to run gservice fix again. What is the CPU doing during long idle times anyway?

    Yesterday I was away at a retreat with friends and was barely on my phone, by the time I went to bed the phone was at 32% battery with between 17 and 18 hours on battery but only 50 minutes of screen on time. Is this normal or is there too much battery being used?

    Mine is dropping like crazy today. 39 percent CPU usage. Never been this high. At 35 percent battery left currently and usually a good 30 percent higher. Not sure what's going on but just happened out of the blue. Not warm at all either.

    Just put my XL on charge (bed time) and checked SOT and it's 6.5 hours. Been watching the cricket and spent time on reddit. Lots of music played via speakers walking the dogs too.
    If you have a problem then I'm sure it's app based, check them for background usage. Facebook is awful. Fwiw, screen set about 50%, location high, Bluetooth and Nfc always on.
    Poor mobile signal is my worst culprit for battery life

    Gonna have to put mine on the charger I guess. First time since I've had it, it needed more than 1 charge in a 24 hour period. Currently 21% with 2 hours SOT. also, 47% system usage. Something is seriously going on under the hood with my P2.

    Mine has also taken a hit since Friday. Don't know what happened. It was doing so well during the week. This weekend has been bad. I didn't change anything and no new apps added. Had to charge the phone twice yesterday. I've never had to do that since I started using my Pixel 2.....

    The single biggest drag on the battery is screen brightness.
    Did you change brightness?

    I charged it up to 100% 7 hours ago and ran that Gservice fix app. I've been lightly using it and it has only dropped 7%. Weird thing I noticed is it started draining over nite last nite and I ended up with 47% system battery usage which in a day would only be may 3 or 4 percent at most. Now in the past 7 hours after running that app I show 1% system battery usage. I had something going on under the hood that was seriously draining my battery and now it seems to be gone. Only difference is running that app. I hope this is fixed. I'll know more tomorrow. Maybe give that app a shot if you haven't already. Can't hurt.

    I loaded the Gservice fix app the last time my battery was acting up. Think I'll try it and see what happens. Thanks. My battery is not horrible but has been acting different lately. Not a big game changer but definitely want to fix it.

    I haven't made any changes to brightness since I got the phone. Not sure what is causing the drain but it comes and goes. I have wondered if it's the Blackberry Hub app I use for email but I've used it on my Pixel and Pixel 2. Never had a problem with it before that I noticed. I really would hate to give up the Hub.

    You could test by temporarily eliminating the hub.
