Hi guy's, when I first updated to Android O my battery was better than ever but it soon developed the same problem here with excessive usage even when not being used (used to get up to three days now one). I have now FIXED the issue. With the android O Update came Google assistant which I activated not long after updating and that's when the battery problem started. I disabled Google assistant yesterday and charged my phone and no more battery problems, I noticed an immediate difference as soon as I disabled it and overnight my phone used 1% battery instead of up to 6% and I've been using my phone regularly all day and only used 15% in the past 20hrs. Hope this helps everyone with the same problem.

Glad you found a solution. For my part turning off all Google on day one of any new phone is priority. Some things I use and need such as Gmail, Playstore, Maps, but that's about it. I wonder how many people are using Android phones and have no idea how many Google security settings there are that must be altered from the default state in order to have a semblance of security at all. Just Google it and you will see! (Ironic no?)

I have experienced similar problem. Extensive battery drain and the phone says a big part of it is from the phone being idle. Yesterday the battery went from 100 to 88 % in the morning, the only thing I did was snoozing the alarm. But the alarm was not showing up on the list of apps using battery. Not sure if it happened right after oreo though. What I did last night was to shut down AVG Porotection. I have seen it running in the background for a while, and that is not because of me, but something Sony has done. It seems better for the moment.

Absolutely, without a doubt, the first thing everyone needs to do is DISABLE AVG! Unless you frequent nasty web sites on a regular basis there is NO NEED for any anti virus software to run on an Android phone. I no longer even have AVG installed on my phone. I do not remember though if it was uninstalled using ADB commands, or if I was able to uninstall it locally from within the settings? Either way it can be removed permanently.

I was having the same problem and i cleaned(deleted it) the system cache and all my Google apps caches and disabled wifi scanning and Google location tracking activities and it made a big difference, Hope it helps
