Thinkpad L490 get warm and battery life is less that half as advertised

I have received my L490 laptop and found that my battery life barely hit 5hrs on full charge. From the datasheet, it is meant to be able to last up to 12hrs. I am fully understand that the clause of "up to" would mean the usage for my device but to get 5 hrs, which is only after lowering the brightness of my display, i feel that is not right. Out of the box, i am only getting about 4hrs of usage time on full charge. Is there a way to achieve higher battery life rather than start to down clock the settings or even reformat the laptop?

I also notice if i am on idle or light usage (open a web browser only), the base of the laptop gets warm as if i am running multiple program.

Anyone had this issue and manage to solve it? I am not ruling out that i need to change more settings but unclear of what should be turn off and what can leave it on without degrading of performance.
