    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!
    Oh I agree with everything you said!

    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.

    My battery life was fine after the initial Android 10 installation but the newer version that was pushed in late September has really been awful for my battery life. When I check my app usage it's no different than before (maybe 1 or 2% for my most frequently used apps) but on average I am ending work around 20% or so less life than I did before and it's mostly in my pocket for the day. Anyone else also experiencing a negative change since this update?

    No I'm sorry, Android 10 on my 3XL my battery life is pretty good. And I was part of the beta stages as well.

    Battery life on my 3 XL has always been good and I'm not noticing anything different.

    The second Android 10 update screwed with my battery. Seemed terrible at first but I think has improved after a few days.
