    Ever since April I'm struggling with battery. My phone just used 11% sitting on the night stand in 2.5 hours. Number 1 usage item is always Android system now. What the heck is going on?!?

    May Security update simply slammed my battery life.
    It's been exceptional since last Fall when I got my Pixel XL.
    Nothing has changed otherwise.

    Now? Battery does not make it through the day.
    Terrible!

    Same here. Battery was exceptional prior to the April update for me. It's been horrible since.

    Noticed yesterday that since the May update, battery life has been negatively affected. I have marginal 4G coverage at home (orange line all day) and phone was about dead in about 12 hours of minimal use.

    Not sure what happened but I deleted a bunch of apps I didn't use, uninstalled Facebook and reinstalled because it was giving me connectivity issues and my battery life and Android system usage is back to normal

    Same for me and my wife. We both have Nexus 5x phones. Both devices had an uptime of about 28 hours. Starting with the May Security patch of 7.1.2 release of android, the uptime has been reduced to only about 12 hours. All the time "Android-System" is the high scorer in the energy overview with up to 40 %.

    Both phones had no major changes in point of view to apps installed / changed. It really looks like the latest security update is the root cause of battery drain.

    Does anybody already know about an existing bug ID to reference in the Google Android bug tracker?

    Can a few of those having battery issues of late try turning off their wifi? I did this yesterday and my battery drain got better, and appears to be better today as well. Not as good as before the April security update, but certainly better than what I've had the past month. My son is also trying this on his Nexus 6P as his battery took a dive after the April update as well.

    Battery life was a Giant plus like everyone one else after latest update it has been terrible. Google what ever you fixed STOP unfix it. Largest drain by far is the OS.

    I can confirm, when I turn of WiFi for a whole day, the battery life gets better, but I'm not sure if this is simply because WiFi is off, or whether there is any relation to the root cause for having high battery drain and high percentage uses of OS process.

    How long did you have your Pixel XL before you noticed battery degradation?
