Cpu is draining my battery?

Star II

I dont know what happened but the first week my phone lasted me the whole day. But now something changed and my phone runs hot all the time idle at 36° I think this is what is draining my battery. If i had to guess it would be that the cpu is running at X mode even if toggled off. I will test this theory later by charging it to full and run it on x mode the whole day see if I have the same battery life and temp.

Well that wasn't it. It runst 2° hotter on xmode. My rog 1 phone on 80% has 10 hours and 50 min remaining battery life. My rog 8 has on 80% 6 hours and 33 minutes left.

Hello @Chloetolls 
Regarding this issue, which firmware version are you on?
And I wonder if you could share a log recreating the issue with the dev team so that they can look into it, I will be writing the steps down below, while doing the log please use the phone as normal during a period of an hour or 2.
Please follow the below steps to enable the built-in log tool (Bug reporter).
1.  Open “Calculator APP”
2.  Enter “.19595+=”
3.  Select the Log type according to the type of issue you want to capture. “General cases” will work for most issues.
4.  After your selection the log tool will exit so you can duplicate the issue or wait for it to happen. Try to use the screen recorder to show your issue when possible. If you can't screen record your issue, then please take a screenshot right after the issue has occurred (as a timestamp) so we know where to look in the log.
5.  Navigate back to the log tool via calculator and Tap "FINISH AND SHARE".
6. It takes several minutes for the log to generate. You can exit and do other stuff in the meantime. A silent notification will tell you once the process is done. Tap the notification and then the share button to upload the file to Google Drive and share the link with a moderator. Just make sure to change the permission first so that everyone with the link has permission to view it.
Note: When you're no longer planning on logging your device, enter “.09595+=” in the calculator and the log tool will stop as well as deleting all stored log files. Make sure to share via calculator. The files found in internal storage -> asus_log are not the correct files (they are only 1.2kb)

Did you update your phone to the latest firmware version ? If yes , that's the reason. Many users are suffering from this bug not only on ROG 8 but also on ROG 7 as well.

Got same issue, since last update my phone overheating all time to 36 37 ° and in some games goes to 38 39 even using Asus aero cooler x.
