A week ago, I got Mi9T.
A few qords on how I use it. Most of the time, I have a computer infront of me so I deactivated BlueTooth, WiFi, Mobile data and set the network to 2G(sais saves battery). Battery optimizer is on. These settings drain the Battery about 7-9% for 24 hours.
Now the question is, is this the best battery life I can get? I previously had Lenovo K6 with battery of 3000mAh and simmilar settings were making the battery last for almost 25 days. Now the Mi9T has 4000mAh battery, which is 33% more than the Lenovos 3000mAh but it looks like that the Mi9T will last for the half of the time that the Lenovo does. It just doesn't feel right to have 33% more battery but 50% less battery life. I like the Mi9T, because the selfy camery is not "eating" the space of the display and looks smooth and all rest seams fine but the the battery drain, when not much used, seams bad. Now the Mi9T I have has some body deffect too, so I will try to return it but If I know that the battery can get the life at least as the Lenovo I will order another Mi9T other wise I'm not sure.
Also, I am not sure to what extent it is related, but I charged the phone once. I can't find straight forwad instructions on how to charg the phone. The manual sais that it should not be charged for more than 12 hours. I charged it for 8. After charging drain rate is the same. No improvement.
