    I have the smaller Pixel 3 and battery life for me seems about the same. I'm not a heavy phone user either so I still can't comprehend why within 3 minutes of removing from charger and without any use, the phone already drops 1% and I bought it brand new since May of this year.

    I love my Pixel 3 but the battery life is such a let down for me. I don't even need to enable digital wellbeing, the short battery life already limits my phone use for me!

    Good to hear it has improved for some others though.

    That's good to hear. Could always use more battery life.
    haha yep yep exactly. Again, ever since I had my threat sell I've been on Q beta or Android 10 beta. I was never really on pie 9. Regardless, I stil heard l, from the rumors and reviews of Android 9 from the pixels that I heard about on the forums, heard that Android 10 is much better on battery in general!

    Yep for most people , battery life is a deal breaker. I mean rightfully so, we rely on our smartphones all the time.

    Some days I am getting more battery life, other days it seems worse. Was on beta before the official release. Will test the official version out for a few more days.

    For now, will say battery life is maybe slightly better. Phone performance seems snappier though, so that's a really good sign.

    I know mine is a Pixel 2XL but I got nearly 7 and a half hours SoT last charged 14 hours ago and 14% battery left. So pretty damn good.

    I was getting great battery life on 9 and nothing that I can tell has changed on 10.... still getting great battery life. I do like that everything's still working like it should with no new permissions needed, or any new battery restrictions etc. It's nice that all my settings stayed intact, and I haven't had to do anything but enjoy 10.

    The one thing I have noticed that might or might not be connected to 10 is that the Google Assistant seems to take a lot longer to respond lately.

    I don't know if you're talking about responding when you say, "Hey, Google," or responding to a specific query. I don't use "Hey, Google" but the response to questions is quite prompt and the same as it's always been.

    I use the verbal command on my Google Home. Since I don't want my Pixel 3, my chromebook, and my watch, all responding in chorus, and out os sync, with mt Google Home, they require a touch to start Google Assistant.

    So far (less than 24 hrs) I'd say the battery life for my phone is actually worse. Nothing extreme but it is noticable. I just did the update without wiping the cache or factory resetting anything, so maybe doing that would help. But with the pixel stand and wired fast charging the battery life doesn't bother me. I still got over 4 hrs last night of screen time where I was getting 5 hours. Gonna wait for the OS to set up and re learn my habits before I do anything about the battery life. On the positive side, my phone is hauling *** now. Seems far quicker and far more responsive than ever before. As usual every phone even within the same model family is different so your mileage may vary.
    I concur, does seem a bit worse for me as well but nothing crazy style. And I'm in same boat of no wiping stuff after the install/update. What I find odd tho is my Essential I've been running threw Beta builds for Android 10 & its battery life seems much better then what I get on my Pixel 3. And I realize its not same hardware/specs and the battery is a tad bigger but its no comparison on how long it last compared to my Pixel 3.

    Non-existent... I dropped my Pixel 3 XL onto the livingroom floor with less than 24 hours to Android 10's release... Shattered the screen so badly it won't even light up. So much for my UAG case being a worthwhile investment of $50... Not replacing it with another pixel... can't justify that price.

    It's been a little more than 2 days and in my experience the battery life has gotten a little better. I used to average 4 1/2 to 5hr SOT now I'm getting around 6hr.

    I need to do an update to my previous post in this thread.

    My battery life is SIGNIFICANTLY better with Android 10. I didn't charge my phone since last evening, got up this morning with 74% and then was heavily texting several other cell phone geek friends for a solid two hours while watching the new iPhone keynote. Battery only dropped 10% in those two hours.

    My battery life on my P3 seems a little better, maybe. Hard to tell. I charge it once a day and rarely if ever drop below 50% charge. Which was true with 9 and also now with 10.

    6hr SoT? Is it the 3 or 3XL? That's impressive.

    I can barely make it to 4hr SoT

    For what it's worth, my Pixel 2 battery usage is slightly greater on A10 than it was on Pie. Still enough to comfortably get me through the day though.

    It's the 3XL but remember everyone's usage will be different so in turn SOT will be different.

    That a fair point.

    I guess with my heavy use 3-4 hrs SoT is the best my Pixel 3 can manage. Can't get through the day without charging at least once.

    Pixel 3 battery usage details for the past couple of days. Light use managed to get 4.5 hours SoT with 13% remaining, which is very rare for me.

    Noticed app usage tracking is a bit off. Now it says Instagram is eating up huge amount of the battery, previously it was another app. Is it some system usage being assigned to random apps?

    On the upside, it does seem standby/idle battery consumption is lower.

    The first 2-3 days after upgrade the battery was worse. Now it's been a week and the battery life seem to get back to what Android 9 used to be. Perhaps it just takes a few days for it to adapt.

    My battery was draining like crazy. I've seen some people say that they just shut off location services. Rather than doing that, I went through the location services menu and disabled location services for all the things that never need to know where I am, set most of the others to "allow only when app is in use" and only kept the essential apps able to use my location at any time. After the upgrade to 10 I probably would have seen my battery drop around 4% just typing this. With the new location permissions, it hasn't even dropped 1%. I am a happy camper.

    Side note: the new gesture navigation is friggin awesome!
