I bought iPhone XS last month. And the only thing that I feel bad about it is the battery life.
Here is my XS battery graph. It seems the lowest than every phone I ever had.
The brightness is set around 40% with cellular off (Bluetooth and wifi always on) and background app refresh is all off. Is it normal to have around 4-5 hours per cycle(100%)?

PS. the game I played was not consumed battery in my old device. and my phone did not hot while I was playing it.

My XS battery actually lasts all day and it is the first phone to be able to do that.

Buy a dedicated flashlight?
LOL, I was used as a bedroom lamp.

Seems pretty bad, my five year old iPhone 6 usually still has 60% left after a full day (from approx. 06:30 am to 08:00 pm).

Maybe you could try the Geekbench battery benchmark to see how your iPhone XS compares to others?

I did test it last month, it seems ok though. But I'm still not satisfied with the battery life anyway. :(
