Awful battery life

    Lately my OPO's battery life has absolutely tanked. Even with a wide variety of kernel tweaks and greenify mods my phone can barely push 3 hours SOT and 12 hours off charge. Yes I know most of you will say to switch back to KitKat, but even that produces maybe 3.5 hours at best with all the tweaks. Another argument is multirom but even if I install it as my internal my battery life continues to be awful. I can't have this type of battery life when I'm back in school and away from home for many hours at a time. Might be time for an upgrade.

    Wow ! That battery life is shocking. I'm getting 2 days out of mine, and one day on heavy use.

    Check your apps, keep awake, search for WiFi. I made sure these things won't drain my battery, so far so good, and good luck.

    Getting 24 hours with atleast 3 hours of SoT with medium/heavy usage. Like suggested, check your battery health. Also take a look at which apps are running in the background.

    If you haven't already, try turning on auto-brightness. The screen is the major drainer so having it automatically drop the brightness to like 20-30% when it is not needed is a good way to save battery.

    In roughly the same boat as you I have owned my OPO for just over a year and I still get about 2 days of battery life.. Mind you I am still on CM11 and never upgraded past this as I heard nothing but horror stories.. There are steps to see what the issue is but you may want to look at replacement for the battery

    You may have the Google Play Services wake lock problem. I had problems with battery life on my OPO since CM11S R33 OTA update. This is the only fix that worked for me.


    This still didn't fully fix the battery drain problems, but it did improve them significantly. I dumped my OPO for an Alcatel OneTouch Idol 3 back in May and it was the best choice I made. Much better and more stable battery life than my OnePlus One ever had.

    Maybe irrelevant but on my g3 i'm lucky to get 1hr 30 SOT...I think I may need a replacement battery ;)

    I am actually excited for the new battery.. you talked about the old opo battery. The new one is about 3000mAH? My phone (galaxy s4 mini)´has like what? 1900mAH? And with this I get around the whole day even with my usage! I mainly use it as an hotspot for my iPod! :D
