    I'm happy that the Key2 uses such an efficient processor. But it seems that "RCS Phone" is using a disproportionate amount of battery, more than it should. A restart does not fix this.

    Yep, from what I can see from other external site and forums, the implementation of RCS from Android N to O may have ongoing issues on this front. As you said, nothing we can do unfortunately.

    Not sure if this is still an active thread. However I've been experiencing excessive batt drain with my brand new Key2 on ABP924.

    To cut a long story short - have you had switched on "double tap to wake" ? I figured out with GSam and WLD lite that this may be the root cause of my drain. Suddenly RCS Phone and Kernel are not the main suckers anymore...

    Have a try and let us know here.

    Something to consider - it may not actually be RCS causing the battery drain.

    RCS is grouped into the 1000 UID group of system apps. What shows up as battery drain for one of those apps, could very well be caused by another. They all show the same memory and battery usage and any connections being made by just one of those apps, will also be shown as coming from all the others.
