Good day,

I was wondering how the SOT is with your MI5 devices? Because everywhere I read SOT like 4-6 hours, when I bareley get 2-2,5 hours of SOT with normale usage.
GPS is off, Bluetooth off, Location on wifi/mobile network, WiFi scanning off, Mi sync off, screen brightness on max 50%, Wallpaper carrousel disabled and using Greenify to close unused apps when screen is off

See here some screenshots;

Hope to hear your experience or tips or tricks because this drain is making me not happy :(

Best Regards

I'm facing same problem on global 8.2.2.0 ... :/ Maybe the situation is a bit better for me.

These days I get 2-4 hours, depending on usage. 4 hours if I commute to unfamiliar place, 2 hours from google maps alone. Otherwise, I quite seldom check my phone (I mirror important apps to my laptop) so only 2 hours most of the time. Everything but bluetooth (only occassionally to sync Mi Band 2) is on. My Mi 5 is over 1 year old, though. In its first months, getting 4 hours SoT is easy, and that is achieved within 1.5 days of a single charge (down to 1.1 day these days).

6-7h SOT with 8.1.4.0(last MM Global). Battery lasts a second day sometimes, usually with 4-5h SOT. About 3% drain overnight, with energy saving active(auto). Everything on(wifi,4g,bt,gps,auto brightness), only 1 app autostart(smartwatch). Phone is about 6 months old.
From what I see on forums, MM MIUI is much better at almost everything, including battery, than Nougat.

I get less than 4 hours only when gaming. Also, last night my battery only drained 2% in 8h, which is really good. I still think that 8.1.x.0 marshmallow versions were better for battery life
