    I read a lot of reports about the battery drain issues on most older and newer iPhone models.
    The real problem is now, that we cannot roll back to previous signed iOS platforms.

    With all that said, I am on the verge of switching to an Android phone.
    Apple has lost its shine...

    As usual, fast battery drain caused by lots of post-upgrade processing. The day after, my SE was back to normal.

    Should I reset my iPhone SE or just wait until the post-processing completes for another day?

    My 6s has been great with 11.4 and battery life seems like it has improved a bit to be honest. I had lots of issues with every version of iOS 11 until 11.3 by the way.

    Do I need to reset or do another reboot or wait until the post processing is complete for another day?

    Since we are no mind readers and have very little info on your phone, the apps thats installed on in, wifi details, version of iOS prior to installing 11.4, are aware of how you are using your phone there is no chance of actually being able to tell you what to do.
    It can be hundreds of reasons to you battery drain problem.

    Help Apple out by enabling analytics:
    https://support.apple.com/en-us/ht202100

    And log a case with Apple support, that way they can extract info from your phone and find a solution quicker.
    The more info they have the better.

    No problems with either mine nor the wife's 7 plus's both which are on 11.4.

    Both iPads seem to be happy with 11.4 as well.

    All for devices were left on charger overnight and then used as normal the next day.

    Ok, here the details of my phone and my usage.

    iPhone SE. Had the previous iOS version right before updating to 11.4

    Apps: Hardly any 3rd party apps installed, maybe 3 apps total from the App Store, that's it.

    Usage: I am mostly running a background noise app so I can focus on my work and also sometimes to help me go to sleep. These include airplane noises, fan noises, and other ambient sounds. And it is MOSTLY running all the time. Also, I listen to some HAM radio frequencies most of the time on my scanner app.
    And when I am online, I also tend to watch YouTube videos as well. So yes, maybe these are the culprit of the battery drains.

    Network: Running on my home wifi network on 2.4Ghz.

    Hope this info helps.

    Rolling back is no option anymore since Apple decided to not sign older versions of iOS and this includes ALL iPhone models.

    Good job getting the info, give it a post in the https://forums.macrumors.com/threads/11-4-se-fast-battery-drain.2120873/ since they are trying to nail whats causing the problem.

    Since you are on the 2.4 (and maybe has been all the time) it might be valuable info to them.
