Mi 10 Ultra halved battery capacity?

Hi folks, I'm on the latest weekly (though I think it might've been a thing before), and I've noticed that it seems as if battery life and capacity is halved, as of its using only one of the device's two cells.
Accubattery and the battery life I get out of the phone agrees with this wild theory. Does anyone else have this issue? Readings from accubattery/comparisons with other devices would be welcome! Thanks.

120, and about 3 hours browsing Reddit and whatnot. On the China ROM (and I think the older EU) I recall getting 6. My K20 pro gets about 6-7. The phone's nice and cool, and nothing seems out of the ordinary. A very strange phenomenon!

That's normal. Battery Calibration is s**t.
Just charge the phone until 100%.

You'll see huge differences.

And just so you know, your battery capacity has nothing to do with any ROM. That is purely hardware specific.
You can calibrate all you want. Won't make a difference.

The best you can do is lowering your Refresh rate.
Or like @wildflower_ suggested. Returning the device

Accubattery is wildly inaccurate when it comes to a novelty two cell battery architecture like the one this phone has.
Its readings should be taken with a grain of salt.
The only tell if something is off might be if you're actually experiencing extremely short SOT and you're sure that's not because of poor phone optimization (settings, rogue apps etc)
