Google Pixel 2 dies very fast

I have only had my Google Pixel 2 for one week and the battery dies within a few hours after fully charging it. According to Advanced Battery Usage under Settings, it's Google Play Services that is draining the battery so fast.

After doing some research online, it appears this is a common problem:

Experiencing Google Play Services battery drain after the latest update? Here's an unlikely fix

I contacted Google and they confirmed that it is a problem that a lot of users are seeing, but they couldn't tell me when or if it will be fixed.

Verizon is sending me a new phone, but since the problem is with Google Play Services I am not hopeful that it will be better on a new phone.
