14 hours with 33.2.A.3.81.
Not so much has changed for me so far.
Phone was on Stamina for 5 hours, yet it didn't use Doze at all. I think my problem is that. Phone doesn't use Doze mode. As you can see in the system battery tab, I don't use much apps. There are only Screen, Cell Standby and Phone Idle. Screen brightness was about 40% level. I just played Auralux 2 for 15 minutes. And I've done a software repair with PC Companion and this is the first use after the reset.

August security patch update solved my battery issues. The phone doesn't overheat anymore and I was able to get a full day of use with a little over 4 hours on screen time. And I use my phone regularly throughout the day.

@Roadrunny I actually read yout post here about you being able to watch youtube videos for 20 minutes with only 1% of your battery left, while using chrome/browsing the internet took you only 10 minutes before battery dies. If thats not software related, I dont know what that is. Sounds like all these issues about the battery are mostly in the software or apps used..
