    Just curious to hear how everybody's battery life is after upgrading to Pie?

    For me, my both standby and overall battery usage is quite a bit better than Oreo. Frankly, I didn't expect much change from the upgrade (in terms of battery life) but am really pleasantly surprised.

    What is everybody else seeing?

    I can't really tell the different on my P2XL from the Betas, but it's definitely better than when on Oreo.

    I only got my 2XL yesterday and immediately upgraded to P. I have used the phone a lot today, with over 5.5 hours of SOT and currently have 17% left.

    Battery is fine, it's my usage that's out of whack.

    I think my actual usage is better... Seems to last longer throughout my workday, but I'm not sure when the phone is asleep. My first overnight self test, I lost 12%... second night 10% ...

    Hopefully the system gets settled in and that gets down to the mid single digits.

    I meant I use my phone all day long.

    My battery life has been great since the first beta release. It seems like it got a little bit better with each subsequent release. Really good now, I’m very pleased with it

    Follow up post..

    I think my meter is off... My overnight system performance is about what I expect, close to 6%, but the meter is showing a 12% decline... 6% of that is unaccounted for.

    For me, it seems a little worse than what it was on beta. I don't have hard numbers yet though.

    Hey guys, Pixel 2 (regular) owner here.

    I haven't done an overnight check, since I waited to update until this afternoon, and I wasn't on the beta
    either. But compared to 8.1, it seems like battery life has improved. Lately it seems like I could just get a bit over 3hrs SOT. Early on I was able to hit 4hrs SOT pretty regularly, and in extreme situations I could get over 5hrs. Normally the first day after an update my battery is lower and takes awhile to shake out. So far I'm at 49% battery with 2hrs 47mins SOT. So if that holds I'll be happy.

    I don't even hate the gestures, I thought I would but don't. So far, happy with my piece of Pie.

    So with this new "AI" they've got in Pie, will my phone eventually figure out "X minutes until full" while charging?? Lol. I was at 93% with a "7 minutes until full" and 8 minutes later I was at 95%... It really seems like it shouldn't have that hard of a time determining charge times. It's been wrong as long as I've had the phone.

    I'm really glad that battery life seems to have improved for most users! Hoping that will happen to me when I install the official update!

    Any battery life change doesn't jump out at me. But then I had no complaints about battery life before Pie. 2XL 128

    Just about to download my Pie update now! Super excited! Will report back here when I have had a while with my battery to see how it operates under Pie.

    I'm getting significant improvement in usage, but still losing over 12% overnight, no change from Oreo. (I have been in beta for a while and the usage improvements have steadily increased with each release, no real change from genl. release Pie.)

    Exactly the same for me. Overnight is running 10%-12% decline, but my actual day usage has been incredible! I've been coming off charger at 7:00a and having plenty left in the tank at 10:00p with 4+ hours SoT.

    Seems to be the same for me, before and after the upgrade. Then again, I think the battery was great to begin with as I usually get 7 hours SoT on LTE, and 10 hours on wifi.

    Update: My Pixel 2 seems to be charging faster under Pie. Has anyone else experienced this change?

    Did you just download the new update? It may take your battery a little while to adjust to everything.

    I've had it since Tuesday or Wed...

    Last night, I went to bed with the phone at 98% battery (I read some news articles on it after charging to 100%), it discharged to 93-94% by the time I got out of bed. I went for an hour-long walk listening to cached music over Bluetooth and using Fit to track my walk and it's currently at 83%. The phone came off charge at 11:00 last night, it's now 12:30 PM.

    Hmm. I'm honestly not a battery expert, but if you post a screenshot of your battery usage over a 24-hour period, maybe we can all take a look and see if it isn't something else that's causing this drop.

    Also, see if you get the same results while operating the phone in Safe Mode.

    I'm not in any way complaining about the battery life, I find it to be very good...
