    Dear OnePlus 6 users,

    Since I was unable to make the AccuBattery function properly base on my Thread, does anyone have any similar app that can measure Battery Capacity and Current to recommend me?

    Also, while the AccuBattery does not function properly, I often or not receive measurement that the capacity of the OnePlus 6 device is 3033 mAh instead of the rated 3300 mAh. Which is a loss of 10% battery life.

    I read that other people also experienced similar numbers is normal? Is this the case for you?

    Likely the app is not to be trusted. I've never heard anything good about such apps.
    If it was me I wouldn't waste time worrying about such trivialities and just use my phone.

    As a Material Engineer (specialised in batteries), I know that lithium cells pushed beyond the 90% degrades its lifespan. So AccuBattery has been a very good application in monitoring and extending the healthy of my previous phone; Google Nexus 6P.

    On my Nexus 6P, the battery is very well calibrated portrayed accurate readings. Similarly, friends with Huawei Pro 20 and Pixel 2 were also accurate.

    Csiemers; don't you think as a customer of OnePlus you deserve to know the truth behind how they got 3300 mAh? If a specs sheet just says it, then are we not just blindly going by a piece of paper without scientific evidences?

    Reviews that talks about screen on times is not a scientific and accurate way of measuring capacity.

    Spoiler: Maybe all OnePlus 6 have 3000 mAh instead of 3300 mAh? It will be a real bugger if it is!

    I already know the truth, my battery lasts me 1 1/2 to 2 days for my usage. Whether it is a 3,000, 4,000, or whatever is of no concern to me as whatever the size it is, is more than enough for my usage.

    By all means if you can prove without a shadow of a doubt (using some 3rd party app from the app store doesn't qualify as proof) that the battery is less than advertised then you'll have a great story. By all means publish it when you have real proof.

    Try GSam Battery Monitor. I personally haven't used it but read good reviews about it, also try Bettery BetterBatteryStats

    Let me ask you something. You let your 6P's battery be measured across such a long span. 140 times with such long sessions and % charged.
    All you did with OnePlus 6 is charge two times that too for mere 75% total. Give it time. Let it cross 100 charges at least.

    Accubattery stats keep changing and improving over time as more and more charging is done. So better hold it. Observe over 3 months and report then(assuming you charge once a day).

    But i still wouldn't hold these apps in much high regard. They are still damn 3rd party apps. How can they ever correctly measure Hardware capacity of a battery ?

    PS - These questions arised with OnePlus 5 and 5T too. People using Accubattery reported estimated battery capacity at around ~3000 mAh. But if it really were 3000mAh battery life would have been much worse in real life IMO.

    But i would still like someone to actually test what's the real battery capacity in OnePlus devices.
