    got 7+ hour SOT already while 53% battery remaining. I am on OP5 OS 5.1.0

    Just complete 2 battery cycles and cleared cache in recovery after both times.

    Getting great battery life as well with OOS 5.1.0.
    1st cycle, 3 days, almost 10h of SOT with 18% left.
    Dirty flash from 5.0.4, but wipe dalvik and cache before and after flashing 5.1, rooted with Magisk and no issue at all.

    The phone is really stable, very smooth, no issue so far. And great that we are on April security patch.

    Boot the phone into recovery mode and clear the cache.

    1. Power off phone.
    2. Power on phone whilst holding down the volume down button (this takes slightly longer to react than you would expect and after the initial splash screen goes blank for a slightly un-nerving amount of time. But just wait).
    3. Enter the PIN/Password you use to unlock the phone when prompted.
    4. Choose a language.
    5. Choose "Wipe data and cache" (don't worry this is only a path to a submenu, it won't delete your data).
    6. Choose "Wipe cache" (IMPORTANT - MAKE SURE YOU DON'T TAP ERASE EVERYTHING).
    7. It will confirm that you have selected clear cache and ask you to say YES.
    8. When it says success choose "Reboot"

    then leave 3 or 4 power cycles and if not back to normal post screenshots of the 2 different pages of battery info from settings.

    My OP3T can only handle 6h of battery life since the last OS update... and it is heating like hell when performing simple tasks. all of this after almost a year I'm with it. terrible....
