    Dear Android experts,

    Please help me. After the last software upgrade of my Xiaomi Redmi Note 8T phone I found out that phone battery discharge much faster than previouslly. Under battery consumption the following applications are listed.

    Please could you advice me how to close/remove the first application from the list since it could not be deleted, as could be seen from the non active options on the second figure; where it is written : Battery consumed for radio 48.31%. I can not find icon which associate Stanje mirovanja - state of Hibernation - in any menu.

    That looks like the cellular use, not a 'radio' like over the airwaves for music or talk.

    That is still called radio, because it is using radio waves.

    But on a device like this it is the use of the phone.

    The recent change of cellular technology can cause the useage to be higher if you are in a fringe service area.
    I am not sure of the scheduled technology changes in your country, but 3G is going away fast here.
    Now everything is 4G LTE or 5G, and I am in an area with poor reception on those bands.
    Therefore my device uses more power searching for and maintaining a signal.

    This may also be your issue.

    It is in the radio frequencies, not just because of its called "Radio" it deals with more or less the frequencies, but yeah you have a massive wad of mobile data using more and more, be able to shut off the frequent apps every time you go do something new to them. :)

    Thanks for considering my problem. I switched from 4G LTE to 3G and 2G and back to 4G LTE, but without any improvement. After that I switched phone OFF and restarted it again, and troubles dissapeared. Before software update I filled phone battery approximately once per week, but after the update something changed and I had to recharge battery almost each day. It seems to me that this version of MIUI Android needs improvements...

    None of those changes would make a difference most likely.

    Everything is going to be LTE nowadays.

    Anyway, the update may have something to do with it.

    Check Developers Options to see Running Services.

    Here you will see a better breakdown of what is running and how much memory it uses.
