    I have a google store pixel on Verizon. On wifi nearly all the time, poor cell signal, everything on, screen at 75%

    Day 1: Plugged it in and got my apps downloaded. Then unplugged it at 100% and proceeded to log in and sync everything including 2gb of music, podcasts, Google photos, etc. 2 hours of SOT at 62% battery. That's on pace for 5 hours of SOT even with all that happening in the background.

    Day 2: (so far) pacing toward 5 hours of SOT with 20 hours off charger

    Need way more time to give a reliable answer. I only charged it once after receiving it, but I charged it to 100% last night, went through the entire work day today including 1 hour of pure SoT surfing over lunch hour and lots of WhatsApp group chats throughout the day as well as a few phone calls. Still have 60% left. I'll lose 2-3% overnight and then most likely make it the entire day tomorrow with 20% or so left, charging on the third day. This is with the XL.

    I just got it yesterday but my XL seems to hold up pretty well with SOT. It sat on a charger at work and was fully charged when I left work.

    This evening while home I've spent quite a bit of time playing around and on the forums on it:

    Regular pixel here and I'm really impressed with the standby battery at least from day 1. Closest I've seen to iPhone standby. Barely used at work today and only drained 4 percent all day compared to typical 25 percent on my note 7. Also taking a bunch of pictures didn't seem to drain the battery too bad either.

    Day 3 for my pixel. Still on pace to hit 5 hours SOT. I think that will be where it settles for me. For comparison this is more than I would get on the 6p and 2 hours more than I would get on the 5x.

    Here's where I ended day 3. Would hit 5.5 hours sot if I wasn't old and going to bed before 10.

    Day one, so really early to tell, but GSAM is saying 6.5 hours. So far so great.

    Mine has been excellent. Getting 6 hours SOT for my usage is really good. Note 7 was about 5 hrs, HTC 10 was about 5 hours.

    Loving it.

    Wifi all day, but still impressive!

    Not charging it tonight. Looking forward to seeing it flat line all night with the deep sleep.

    Swipe down your notification tray, then hold down on the gear icon for about 5 seconds. When you let go you'll see 'system UI tuner enabled'. Then at the bottom of the settings screen there will be a new option for System UI tuner. It's in there.

    Day 2 and a half, cause it came late Friday afternoon and it's Sunday evening now, so maybe early to tell. I charged it at 11 am today and it's now 9 and was down to 43% but I used it constantly today, still setting it up, lotta email and pix, etc. Also, I am trying out the AOD amoled beta app from the play store that keeps a clock on the black off screen all the time, which I find I can't live without, one of my favorite features of the Note 7, and I think it eats a bit more battery than I wish it did, but I will probably just live with that.

    Hey folks, Thanks for posting battery life info. However, most of you haven't indicated whether or not you are using the Smaller Pixel or the Pixel XL.

    So, please clarify which phone you have when posting. Thanks!

    Used an XL for the past two days over the weekend. Averaged about 5hrs SOT time with about 20% left in battery at the end of the day.

    Just shy of 48 hours at the moment with 49% left. Medium use, decent amount of standby. So far it's at least as good as the 6P if not better (XL here).

    How much SOT in those 48 hours?

    Both the 6P as well as the pixel xl have a 3450 mAh batteries so expect them to be having quite similar battery lifes on paper
    Although read an article recently where they compared the two phones
    Turned out the 6P did a way better job

    I only look at it as how much is consistently left after I am done with it for the day. So far I am getting better percent left then the note7. During the week I am not much of a screen hog, but I do use the phone for pandora and calls. So at the end of the day I have had somewhere between 55-65%. with the note7 it was 35-45. Thats with probably 2 hours sot. I keep all settings on. full screen qhd, probably 60-70% bright but I am in the sunlight often so the adjust it pushed up, gps and bluetooth are on. All google assistant setting are active. Gmail is behind doze.

    The funny thing, and at this point I give the phone credit and then take it away, this is all with terrible signal. I am rarely over -100. usually sitting in the -110 to -119. So yeah for the phone not destroying the battery for constantly fighting for signal, but BOOOO for having terrible signal.
