4+ Hours Battery Life OPT. Seems more like a downgrade to me

    Beta is Beta, wait for release version of the firmware and software before being able to judge the device. MKBHD mentioned in his photos videos there didn't appear to be OIS, but now we know it does, so perhaps the version he has is lacking features. Also given the larger sized battery, some resolution screen and a new processor, maybe some third party kernels and better governors will be able to get the battery life to be better than the OPO which it theoretically should be.

    I know that the 810 is power hungry and heats up a bit. This I know. Doesn't mean I have to accept that it's normal. This is clearly a big issue and one I hope OnePlus resolves since it will be a dealbreaker for most ppl.

    I recall that's exactly the same "punch line" I heard last year when talking about 800vs801.
    NO, it's not normal, it was claimed as draining less battery since the beginning it got branded.

    The only way they can resolve it is by ditching every phone they have made so far and starting from scratch with a chipset that isn't so power hungry.

    Sorry i didn't understand your post, do you mean someone actually said the 801 isn't battery friendly?

    Actually it is normal, the 810 chip is far more battery hungry than the 801.

    Android M is going to improve the battery life of every phone. In testing, look what it has done to the Nexus 5.

    They said the same about lollipop, i think it was 30% or so improvement in screen on time on the nexus 5 then the final version came out...

    So in a nutshell:
    801v800: http://www.anandtech.com/show/7846/...-snapdragon-800-and-801-clearing-up-confusion
    810v801: http://www.phonearena.com/news/Qual...r-runs-cooler-than-the-Snapdragon-801_id66006

    You know, that's what bothering me: always better proc supposedly draining less but in the end don't. And here with the OP2, one would have actually guessed the OP2 to kill OPO on battery drain considering the screen display didn't change heavily. Well, apparently it doesn't.

    IT's THE OP2 FOR THE MILLIONTH TIME, NOT THE OPT.
    Needed to get that out of my system.

    This is most possibly because of the fact that the phone is running Oxygen OS instead of Cyanogen OS. Future tweaks on the phone software will hopefully increase the screen on time though.

    Seriously man, aren't you a bit overreacting? We have called it OPT for a year now. Takes time to adjust.

    While it is true that on paper the 810 is more battery efficient in real life it's a different story, the article by anandtech talking about it running cooler was because it wasn't actually in a real phone, if you read their review on the HTC one m9 they talk about how inefficient it is.
