Hello,
Please reset your phone to factory data, empty and fully charge the battery 2 times (no charge before battery is empty and no use when the battery is being charged). Then the battery performance will go normal.
If you still can't charge the battery fast or it drains very fast, it might have been a faulty battery, and please contact the shop where you bought it.

That's what Ulefone told me. And I don't think so.
The biggest drain comes from cell standby and phone idle like I said and I don't think that happened in older firmwares.
So, here's my day: I get up at 5:20, battery is 100%.
I read facebook/messenger/internet for 10 minutes, check BUS and train and my battery is usually 97-96%.
From now on, I just check fb/messenger every few minutes, and I had to use gallery app for 20 minutes or so.
Result? Less than 40% at 12:00. That's definitely not acceptable.

So I'd like to ask you - does anyone have it similiar OR I have bigger drain issues than others?

Thanks

I can confirm this experience for 100%. Exactly the same here. Idle and standby modes are eating up power.

The cell stanby not eat much battery! My consumption 0,8-1%/h with cell+WIFI+Gmail 15 min. sync.....
Disable the fingerprint sensor and gesture wake and disble gsensor from accessibility and set it to portrait in roll down menu and you have 0,8-1%/h. Today morning after one night stanby my phone say you have 11 day battery life in stanby.
We have a bug in kernel and the gsensor disable the deep sleep.You can see it in kmsg log:
[32832.716343]  (2)[1030owerManagerSer][kxtj2_1009] Gsensor not in suspend KXTJ2_1009_SetPowerMode!, enable_status = 0

[32832.719083]  (2)[1030owerManagerSer]<ALS/PS>  alsps_store_active done

I already sent it to ulefone support team. I hope they sold it in a new update of kernel and no need to desable the gsensor.
