Pixel 3 battery draining after June 2020 update 0 Recommended Answers 123 Replies 296 Upvotes

Pixel 3 battery was fine before the June 2020 security update. Since the update, my battery drains rapidly even when idle. I will have a full charge before bed and wake up to a dead phone. I have checked for apps running in the background and have turned them off but it doesn't fix the problem. 

Charging is also very slow, yet it says charging rapidly at the bottom. The phone now gets very hot while charging.

Hi Tara Taylor 5941,
 
Have you tried restarting the phone into Safe Mode where all 3rd-party apps are disabled? It would help to discover whether an app you have installed is causing this.

I have similar battery-related issues after June update. First, battery drains fast, it lost 3% only because I rebooted my phone. Also, my pixel 3xl is not really charging. It was first stuck at 15% for hours, and then, after several reboots, it finally started charging. Now it is stuck at 30%. "Stuck" in this context means that the icon in the upper right corner shows as if the device is charging, while in fact the battery percentage remains the same. And then, the last reboot almost bricked my phone. It took a really long time to boot up.

I am having the same issue, battery is dying extremely quickly and the phone won't charge with regular Google pixel chargers (have tried 3 different chargers with multiple ports) 

Anyone else having issues with chargers and batteries?

Same issue here, my phone used to last all day but now it's dead by lunchtime, just started a few days ago (after June update) but has been very consistent for the past few days, my usage had not changed. Also having issues charging in the pixel stand but I assumed it was because the battery had gotten too low.

Android used to show you what app was using battery but that feature appears to be gone now.

Same here, device battery is depleting much quicker after June 2020 update.  The Pixel 3a also no longer charges via USB C to USB C cable --> I also tried a brand new Google C to C cable/charger, still doesn't charge.  Only USB A to USB C cables work now.

I noticed the same... is it Google planned obsolescence? 
I'm really tired of these updates that gradually force you to switch to a new device.

This is happening to me as well. My Pixel 3 is basically non functional after the June update. This morning it plummeted to zero from 82%. I'm going to do a factory reset, but I have little hope that's going to help. I'm one month out of warranty and getting ZERO support from Google. Very frustrated.

I am having the same issues. Just noticed my phone dropped 10% less than an hour just sitting in my pocket. I have rebooted the phone and checked my battery settings. Even the google assistant says everything looks good with the battery settings. FIX THIS ASAP!

UPDATE: chatted with Google support today. After "collecting information" they have suggested I do a factory reset. I am reluctant this will help but after backing everything up I will post back any updates

FINAL UPDATE: I realized that the support person asked how I charge my phone I said with the provided usb-c to usb-c. After the fact I remembered I use a wireless charger at night. I made the switch to using the provided cable and have not experienced the battery draining issue since.

I am also having this problem. Despite not having used my phone at all today, my battery is at 13%. See screenshot attached for documentation. The only saving grace is that I can't go anywhere right now, so I don't have to worry about my phone dying on the go...

My battery dropped by over 30% in less than 2 hr & all I've been doing was listening to podcasts... Very disappointed!
