    I used to have a good battery life. Almost like 8 hours with moderate use. But for somedays battery draining has spiked. SOT down to 4 hours. Draining happens usually on standby.
    its fine when phone is on use.
    I searched for the culprit app in the Battery Settings. But the listed apps are as same as i used before when the battery was good. i think there are some background system process that is draining battery when on standby. is there any app where i can check all the running background processes?

    Sometimes apps can drain the battery without being "caught" by the system. One app I know of that can do this (sometimes, not always) is Microsoft Outlook. It happened with my old phone, but not on OP6 (however - it could still be happening, just that the battery life is amazing). What worked for me back then is to enable every single limit I could find - no permission to run in the background whatsoever. It meant I no longer get notifications, but I would still be able to use the app actively without allowing it to drain the battery in the background.

    You might have such an app (not necessarily Outlook). If you can, try uninstalling random apps that you can get by without for a week, and see if anything changes.

    My battery with my Op6 is very good. The first days drained quickly. After few days the screen time is very good.

    First because 0% is not 0%, and second that Lithium batteries do not like 0% and will degrade over time if let discharge to the point where the phone will shutdown often.

    My suggestion is to charge the phone overnight while powered on for 2-3 days (actually this is a good practice). If it doesn't work, clear cache and still leave the phone on and charging overnight as often as you can.

    Google Play Services isn't one specific app, it's stuff like location and email pings. This is normal.

    I disagree.
    This didn't happen before.
    I have noticed that behavior since more or less two weeks ago.
