    Quite a few tech news sources have stated that Google plans to bring the Pixel 5 Extreme Battery Saver feature to older Pixel phones, via a feature drop sometime soon. I haven't seen any listing of which older Pixels.

    An excerpt from the Google blog:
    ..."you can save even more power with Extreme Battery Saver. Extreme Battery Saver lets Battery Saver turn off more features, pause most apps, and slow processing for even more time between charges.
    After you choose when to use Extreme Battery Saver, it notifies you each time it turns on.
    Important: Paused apps won’t send notifications..."

    I'm not sure if I would use it. But, it could be a good thing for some users.

    I'm not sure I will ever enable this either, but do see where it could come in handy....like travelling or other times when you aren't too worried about app notifications but want to keep the phone On and preserve battery.
