Not sure if you can totally stop idle battery drain. How's your overnight battery drain? I usually use that as a gauge if there is any battery drain issues. Mine drops 1-3% overnight which is similar to my previous phone.
Today I woke up with 100% charge still. I tried offing most of the social medias background data apps expect for WhatsApp wonder if that's the fix, but phone idle gotta check again today.

I don't remember my phone idle battery usage value but it's always there at the end of the day. But battery life is normal, no extra drain. Guess u just ignore it. Maybe other manufacturers removed that phone idle thing in battery usage? Lol.

Immersive Mode

I tried this approach at XDA https://forum.xda-developers.com/ess...-mode-t3723639 to hide the navigation bar. It worked well so far. Take note of the catch though.

Depends if you consider the nav bar as screen space also. All measurements below my own with a ruler, may have parallax error.

Using Chrome:
- Including Nav bar is 13.8 cm = 5.43 inch
- Not including Nav bar is 13.1 cm = 5.15 inch

Some apps will give the status bar colour, i.e. Samsung internet browser beta:
- Including Nav bar is 14.3 cm = 5.62 inch
- Not including Nav bar is 13.7 cm = 5.39 inch

I think this phone needs a proper immersive mode to make use of the screen more.

For that price, and with this kind of support, I think it's worth it. Unless you bought this on launch.
