Replacement screen uses more power?
I have this 12 mini iPhone that I crushed the screen on... So I bought a (cheap Chinese OLED) replacement screen and installed it myself, but it seems like my battery life is much worse now.
It is an OLED, but is it possible that the cheap OLED's are taking more battery power than the original screen? It's not really a battery "drain"... If I don't use the phone it's fine, but if I use the phone, the battery dies quicker than it had.
Thought that I might have overheated the battery while trying to remove the old screen, but it still shows 100% in settings. How accurate is that?
Also updated to iOS 16.0 around then, and maybe I am just using it more, but up until I broke the screen, I was majorly impressed with the battery life, now... not so much.
I'm sure there will be no definitive answer and anything is possible, but I was just curious if anyone else had a similar experience.
Es esta una buena pregunta?
I have heard that some has issues with iOS 16 battery life and that it changed the boot process to where third party displays can act funny or not at all.

@thequacker Thanks for your reply! The display still works fine, but there is a notification in settings about a non original display, so maybe Apple is punishing me for daring to tinker with their phone! LOL

Oh, and I just thought of something else... I turned Night Shift on 24/7 to adjust the temperature of the new screen (it was too blue) maybe that was adding a little extra processing? I will turn it off and see if that helps.

@smeeprom correction: Apple is punishing you for daring to tinker with YOUR phone.

@smeeprom I can confirm that there seems to be issues with (at least some) phones and iOS 16 vs battery life. I'm experiencing it somewhat on my 12 Pro Max as well. Draining much faster than it was with latest iOS 15.
My phone is bone stock, no repairs or upgrades done to it.
