I'm new to Xiaomi, I've had my Redmi Note 10 Pro for a week or so. I'm very pleased with the look and feel of it but I think I should be getting much better battery life. I checked various reviews before buying and the consensus was that it's very good in this regard. One reported typically having 25-30% left after a busy day with 6-7hrs screen-on time, lots of media streaming, Skyping and so on. I think I'm a very light user, just a bit of browsing and checking mails, so I expected to have loads of power left at the end of a typical day and probably enough for two, but I'm only ending up with about 40% after barely half an hour of screen time. |
Looking at a snapshot of the top consumers from the phone's Battery stats of a light usage day (chart shows 21hrs23mins "active") shows:
... with 41% remaining. So nearly 60% of a 5,020mAh battery is being eaten up having used only 21mins of screen time. That seems like a very heavy background drain, yet one of the other reviews reported the standby usage as "great", with 6hrs30 sitting idle using just 2% of battery (mostly cell standby).
Is there something I need to investigate and/or optimise?
