    do you use wifi or mobile data?

  • Hi @cattycat53

    1.What's your current firmware version?

    2.Did you notice a battery drain after recent updates?

    3.You can try the following:

    Charge your device to 100% before going to bed -> Put your device in flight mode and note the time -> Check the battery level in the morning and note the time again.

    Report back with your results.

    Same here on Android 12. Battery is draining fast. Using dinamic setting and automatic refresh rate.

    I'm experiencing similar problems but for Android 11. I'll never go back to Android 12, it absolutely murdered the battery of my Pixel 4a and I had to downgrade. I'm surprised to see issues on the Zenfone 8 with Android 11 though. It's only happening for me while the screen is active. The battery life is decent while the phone is idle / screen is off.

    The biggest problem of zenfone 8 is GSM antenna. If cellular network is active it is responsible for big portion of battery consumption even in idle (even while on wifi). In offline mode I loose 2% overnight, with gsm enabled 7-9%. Wifi have insignificant impact.

    I noticed that battery level indicator loses charge quicker in high values over 70 or so but in low values I was able to get more than 1h SOT when there was 15% of battery. So it loses unproportional amount when at high charge.

    PS. In terms of battery I never had better phone than Lenovo P2 - easily 10h of SOT after 2 years of usage even on LTE. That was a comfort - I didn't have to think about battery, even at 30% in the morning I was able to reach evening.
