Sudden excessive battery drain with new update

Star I

Hi,  ASUS Zenfone 8 shows excessive battery drain. It started showing up after the penultimate update. Current version: 33.0210.0210.332. I normally charge overnight. Now in the evening regularly 20-30% less battery capacity than before the update. Settings-Battery-Battery usage is excessive in "Others", other applications and the system have battery drain without changes.

Same on ZenFone 9 (among other issues), no update from asus altgough this problem IS raised months ago

The same thing happened with me Why does my ASUS Zenfone 8 have a 20-30% faster battery drain after updating to version 33.0210.0210.332, with 'Others' showing high usage in the battery settings?   

Best Regards

Is there software engineer in Asus yet? Didn't try it before send it to the user?

Strange, for me the battery life is a little bit better with the last update (33.0210.0210.332). And also the phone's UI feels faster.

Still, "Others" are the biggest consumer (around 15% today). 
I'm using "Durable" system mode.
