    5 hours SOT seems pretty stellar, no?
    Fell asleep after a night shift watching cricket. Woke up to 7.5 hours screen on time and still 15% battery. Went over 8 hours before I charged

    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
    Sounds like you have a problem that is app related. You are in the very very small minority. Everyone else complaining about higher discharge overnight after 8.1 is talking about 7% loss overnight. You are in a special case my friend.

    @paradroid, if you haven't done a factory reset yet I'd suggest doing that. What your experiencing is way out of line.
    Losing 7% over nite is the new normal for me and I'm feeling pretty certain the 8.1 recalibrated the battery meter. But your loss is just not right.

    I may try that. Also, while charging my phone back up this morning - has been fast charging for 2 hours now and at 95% and phone is warm. I never felt this phone ever get warm before. Something is up.

    Tell Google Assistant the exact brightness level you want, no more tweaking with the slider control.
    Wow! I never knew you could do this! You can also enable and disable adaptive brightness this way, which is a godsend when you forget to do so when heading outside! I usually turn adaptive brightness off indoors because it's distracting to me.

    What is the command to set brightness?

    When I say "Set phone brightness to 35%" the google lady tells me "sorry I am unable to process your request".

    Other variations of the command give me a link to download "Auto Brightness" from the app store @ $3.80.

    Lux Dash is a really good adaptive brightness app for outdoors, indoors, outer space, wherever. I used it for years up to my LG V20 the other week before I went Pixel 2 XL because so far the adaptive brightness is not bad. But I may give Lux a whirl on Oreo as well.

    That worked. Need to be pretty specific with that command, Google AI needs to get smarter.

    I'm trying this app out and wondering if it's doing much good. I'm keeping records for a week then going to try it for the next week without just to see how much it helps, if any. A question for you tho, it says it may take more than one application for it to work, maybe 2 or 3 times. How many did you use before you felt it was working? How did you conclude it was back to normal?

    Thanks, It might be working and maybe I'm expecting to much. That's why I'm keeping track of my SOT and remaining battery at bedtime for a few days to see what if any improvements.

    I've never used it before I downloaded, followed the steps, and my battery was fixed immediately.

    Ran the gservicefix on mine this morning. Initially was better with still being on 100% when I got in the office rather than dropping 2% but has dropped a bit now. Will see what it's like at the end of the day. I did only run it once

    On the topic of battery life, has anyone else noticed that the camera will drain battery much faster than most other apps and use cases? It's not a problem, but I'm curious why that is.
