Q: Alternatives to manual DNS

So, Android Pie has a bug, where if you don't use DHCP, and manually set DNS and IP, there is a lot of battery drain.

I don't want to use pihole network wide. Is there a good way to set my phone to use pihole, without using manual DNS settings in Android?

I currently have two Wi-Fi configurations on my phone. One of them uses DHCP to use standard DNS. The other one manually points to pihole.

There are apps to manually set the DNS, but they use VPN which I don't necessarily trust and also has battery drain.

Any ideas? Is there a way to point everything to pihole (maybe using the DHCP server on pihole?) but only filter ads for some clients?
