hi, i installed the latest dev. rom 7.1.12 on my Mi5S and i think battery drain is quite high in standby mode. does anyone else observe this?
would it help maybe to install greenify oder doze or something else? Or what can i do to save battery when i dont use the phone?

Greenify or similar go against internal system for preserve battery, so suggest not install.
At my opinion best version for low battery drain remain 6.12.22.
Last 7.1.12 is better than 7.1.5 where battery drain was much higher, 6.12.29 was a nightmare for drain battery.

In addition to xlilly's proposal with Greenify pls try also this:

Settings / Battery & Performance / System Animatons / Hide System Animatons

With this step I managed to get approx 35% more running time with the battery on one charge.

Myself and a friend have noticed huge battery drain with the last 2 updates.... both on a mi5s android and android system according to the battery monitor.

This actually seems to help a lot even on the latest rom. Thanks!

With the last two 6th versions i have had a very small battery consumption. Yesterday after more than two days in small use i ended with 39%. Actually with a little gameplay today and around two hour newsreader i end with 64% - no need to charge it at this time. I´m very satisfied with this device. My S6 Edge before i had to charge every evening.

yes the new 7.1.12 is quite good but more battery drain over night than in .22.
now about 12-15%. Ill try a calibration today maybe it helps. There is also a programm that wakes up the handy several times at night, also the screen was on a short time, creepy.

At my opinion, best for drain battery remain the version 5.12.22.
Another way is root device, install xposed framework and app Amplify, with this limit some wakelock that create battery drain.
Also setting Settings/Battery & Performance/System Animatons/Hide System Animatons as suggest from Ilir ILIRI can help much.
