    Sounds as though a factory reset is the answer after the update

    I didn't notice any real change with 8.1 initially, but it seems that the battery is draining much faster ever since I enabled the PVC processor (yes, it obviously drains a lot faster when using AR in the camera, but it seems to do so to a very noticeable degree even when not).

    I'm wondering if that processor is leeching power even when not known to be actively engaged, but still enabled...

    I still have 8.0 and overnight I have always lost 7 - 8% battery charge overnight in Do Not Disturb mode which I though was pretty good. What settings do I need to only lose 1 - 2 % as some have mentioned here?

    Overall, the battery has been amazing. I have never gone under 50% in 24 hours. However, unlike many of you I don't play games or watch videos, and screen time is maybe 2 hours per day.

    I listen to music and audio books via bluetooth, check messages and email, read some news, and maybe talk on the phone under 15 minutes a day. Still with same usage pattern, last phone would be at 20% or less at the end of the day.

    Have you checked your battery usage in the morning to see what app might be using juice? My white noise app which runs for one hour is the only thing I see. However my battery took a hit with the update so I no longer wake up to 100%/99% anymore. I have do not disturb set to only allow contacts thru so don't think that really matters. Like you I don't game and only listen to an occasional podcast besides email/texts and web browsing.
    Your being on 8.0 still I'd suspect an app is using juice overnite. FWIW: when I was getting almost zero battery drop overnite I was pulling it off the charger at 100% right before bedtime. Also, maybe reboot once in a while if your not. I usually do that in the morning after checking my battery stats.

    Since my battery is at 80 - 60% when I go to bed it is difficult to tell. I'll charge to 100% right before I put it down for the night. I normally reboot and charge to 100 in the mornings at my desk.

    My guess it is the catch all "System" that is using the battery.

    Yeah, I'm not as concerned during the day or I'm just paying less attention to it maybe. But 100% charge at bedtime gives me a good constant baseline being idyl for reference. Let us know how it goes.

    My note 8 was getting 8-10 SOT so to me nope cause I don't game on this thing anymore.

    I have substratum, today I tried no AoD since I always have my phone up so it's always using battery. And I used gservicefix and that's the usage for the day pretty much. Nothing else, I try to disable Bluetooth and wifi if I'm not using it. This was on par to what I was getting on 8.0 and 8.1 dp1

    Charged to 100% for bed. I lost 5%. I find when my phone is at 100% it takes a while to drop to 99%, so that is probably why I did not lose 8%.

    Anyway, phone idle 2%
    Mobile Standby 1%
    System 1%
    Apps 1% (no idea what app) Rebooted phone at bedtime.

    I received notification that 8.1 was available yesterday afternoon. Should I download it or wait?

    @paradroid, I figured you were on 8.1 already. Yeah, I'd install 8.1 as I think those of us with battery issues are fewer than those without. I'm kind of surprised at your stats overnite tho. Pre update mine were alot better. You can always do a FDR which is what I'm looking at soon I think. Although that's not a guarantee either. Just need to find some more motivation. Also thinking of waiting till the next patch and see if it helps at all.

    I feel the same. Happy with the battery and getting about 2 hours SOT to 40% battery which is great compared to my N6 but not what I was seeing on 8.0

    Tempted to do a factory reset, but reluctant when I've only had it 3 weeks. Curious to see more people update and see if that's the fix

    Well, I always FDR right out of the box, I know a little OCD perhaps but I read on a tech site a few years ago how the testing was done and how stuff can be left on the phone. I had a Nokia several years back that had a porn clip, obviously home made and German on the phone! Then read that article and decided to start FDR-ing before doing any set up and for what ever reason, the excitement of finally having a pixel or whatever I neglected to FDR first. So I'm thinking I'll do it later this evening just for my own peace of mind. Then see how the battery does over nite. I'll come back and post the results tomorrow.

    My battery life was never good from day 1. In fact, it lasts much less than any of the previous phones I've owned (Samsung, LG).

    After several days, I brought the phone back and exchanged it for another new one (because I can't simply exchange or buy a new battery, which drives me nuts), but there was no difference in battery life.

    I am not clear on why this is, especially when one considers that one of the main selling points of the Pixel 2 is the long battery life. I'm doing all the right things like only keeping the screen brightness at 30%, following recommended charging procedures, etc, plus I only installed a fraction of the apps I was using on my previous phones just to keep the drain to a minimum. How is this thing even going to make it to six months, let alone the supposed two years I was told the battery would be good for?

    Nice! Non XL? Didn't you say you performed a full reset and weren't quite sure if it helped? Looks like something's working for ya. I did an FDR yesterday and so far seems like no change but will give it more time before I decide for certain whether it helped or not.

    I did a full reset, and I did gservicefix. I keep brightness at 40% and only disable Bluetooth and wifi if I'm not using it. I think it's gservicefix honestly lol

    I have a animated wallpaper running in the background as well
    Is 2xl

    Might try Gservicefix. First I've heard of it. I see it hasn't been updated in 3 years but if you think it's working for ya maybe that doesn't make any difference. Seems to have some good reviews.

    I heard of it from r/googlepixel myself about a month ago and tried it recently.

    how is it completely black?No matter how dark my background is, most of my screens(settings, chat, remains a white background). Only black background I'm getting outside of my screen is when I swipe down on short cuts from the top of the phone(black but transparent background), and when I press and hold an app(the shortcut) and get a small black background on it.I'm assuming you're using a 3rd party launcher like Nova then?

    I am losing 3% per hour in standby. I am trying to see what is different. only thing I can place my finger on is I don't have a consistent VoLTE connection anymore.
    -Turn off notifications for apps outside of essential apps(like text messages, calls), if you can help it(and just have the blue dot notification)
    -turn off data when you are using wifi
    -turn off bluetooth and nfc when you aren't using it
    -don't have too many apps running in the background

    these could help

    Hit 8 hr SOT lol (the last full charge is glitched, it reset sot when I unplugged but not last full

    Interesting.. so when was the last full charge for you when you took that screenshot, if it wasn't 1.5 days?

    I normally go to bed with phone around 70%. Last night, same thing. Phone was somewhere in the 70% battery range and this morning 25%. I have not seen 20% since I let the phone run without a charge for two days to see how good the battery was.

    Only change, update to "Upgraded" to 8.1. The best thing about this phone was the battery life, now that is gone.

    Now I see why non-pixel phones take their time to update to the latest and greatest Android version. SAD

    Try leaving it in safe mode and trying again. It's most likely an app doing something it shouldn't be.
