I see Androids provide an option to add multiple user accounts to a phone. This is helpful when I have to lend my phone to family or an acquaintance, or to separate work apps and personal apps.

I was wondering if this has any impact on performance or battery life (short term and long term) of the device. I've read a few threads of forums (https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/multi-user-slowing-me-down.3178477/, Does switching user accounts in Lollipop affect battery life or performance?) that talk about this, but they're all from a few years ago.

Has Android started handling this better?
