It’s not the worst thing that could ever happen or a screwball question that passed over on a table where Google pixels are lolling in its cushion. The assimilation and acclimatization period for a freshly bought smartphone would not be more than an unpleasant few days to a long several weeks. During that time, the device would cling to your usage routines and balance the rhythm of battery performance and capacity.

During the event, the user might get to know that an unplumbed and unusual battery drains and even overheats. However, it will be roving down once the system starts to know you and your routine of doing business with the device. Once the event ends, the device should start noticing the improvements and recognizing the effect. But the users of the recently launched Google Pixel 8 and 8 Pro are reporting battery-draining issues after several weeks post-purchase.

The Pixel forum and subreddits have numerous reports floating from the owners of Pixel 8 and 8 Pro experiencing unattended battery drain despite having daily driven the phone for more than the suggested two weeks. However, the Pixel series is always prone to being affected by numerous underlying factors that have impacted every device since the tensor-powered Pixel 6 and 6 Pro debuted. The dolor has taken the owners of the Pixel series and made them hunch and ask what is rightfully theirs.

The Pixel 8 Pro has a 5050mAh battery unit. With normal usage, you shouldn’t be notified of anything below 7 hours of SOT. Still, there are multiple reports from people hardly managing 6 hours of SOT. As mentioned, it may take your mind up to 2 weeks to learn your behavior. “From the researcher’s observations, though, it seems something else is contributing to the battery drain problem on the Pixel 8 and 8 Pro”.

If it’s a spy and luring out owners of heavy users of Pixels, like bashing some unlawful persons in a virtual land or scrolling limitless pictures and videos on Instagram or TikTok, some people come under the heavy usage category and experience the batter drainage issue. Still, how come users won’t pick up the wings of the phone only when it rings, or they need something meaningful to surf through, which is affected by the battery draining issue?

Similarly, if a phone is in sleep mode, it should not have a nightmare rather than shifting its gears to a serene island with a restful environment. The night will never be the same battery-draining issue, and contemporary mobile networks are losing up to 75% battery juice, especially in sleep mode. It is acceptable that mobile network usage can be a considerable battery drain owing to the energy used to transmit to signal towers, depending on your location. The only hope that could kill the murky sands with blooming support is to wait for the software updates that might mend or improve such issues. So, hopefully, the November update brings some highly-needed network optimizations and battery life improvements for Pixel 8 and 8 Pro users.
