b0ttl3m4nFor me it is really weak on the part of Asus that the new zenfone has a lot of new goodies and the old one has problems even with the battery. I understand that new model should be better than the old one, to somehow encourage customer to buy, but here I have the impression that the ZF8 is a poor cousin to the ZF9 and not last year's flagship.
Can confirm, lately I can barely reach 5 hours SOT just from browsing, Youtube and Whatsapp.. Dynamic system profile and the battery stats seem normal. I can barely get through my work day sometimes with more than 20%, something is seriously messed up. I hope the Android 13 update will change some things, like the new Game Master from the Zenfone 9 alongside better Advanced battery settings, that would already be neat, I could run it in low power mode and swap to High Performance for games, easy as that. Hey Asus, I'd also swap for a Zenfone 9 if that's offered xD
