[Q & A] Rapid battery drain after upgrading to Miui

Hi, since installing the latest update on my Mi8 (, the battery has started to discahrge extremely quickly. After some experimenting, I realised that it was related to WiFi.

1) When Wifi is turned on, the battery drains extrenmely quickly (10-15%v per hour when not being used)
2) Leaving Wifi on but turning off the WiFi location scanning (Additional settingsPrivacyLocationWifi scanning) does not improve things (I mention this as it is often quoted as a fix for WiFi battery problems)
3) Turning Wifi off completely returns battery drain to normal.

Anyone else seeing this? Any fixes avaialble? I have reported it to Xiaomi via their feedback app. I don't know if that is likely to provoke a reaction.

On an 8, but on the beta, so no first hand experience. Will try and see if there are others who complain of it and report back if they have a solution
