Even after doing necessary setting changes as recommended,battery is not supportive draining very fast
In idle time it's draining more then 20% in the night which was not the case before updating to Android 11.
I think some software update is required to fix the issue.
After fully charging in the morning, at about 3pm it's showing 20% with moderate to heavy usage
