    Just wanted to know what is the accubattery reading for new OnePlus 8T owners? Mine is showing just 2250 may be due to 2 battery and the app may be due update!

    The fact is OP8T has two batteries, the battery capacity is divided equally between both halves. Watch the tear down video - https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=kjt60...BMAB6BAgBEAM&usg=AOvVaw1aHRU07pAAdPomLTk6iz8t.
    if the ljnk doesn't work search for the same in Google for Jerry rig OnePlus 8T teardown video.
    so what accubattery shows is only one part capacity.

    Don't believe accubattery... It does not understand how the phone battery is built. Accubattery thinks it's one battery not two...

    Accubattery is still good if the phone has just one battery. OP8T battery design is unique, not sure if any other phone has this kind of battery design.

    I ended up going through the same cycle of confusion. I installed lots of different battery capacity detector apps and I got about 2225 mAh battery capacity reading. I called "OnePlus support" and I asked them about the battery capacity on OnePlus 8T, and if it's an issue, they told me that I can return the phone!!!! Zero attempt from OnePlus to provide some sort of clarity to the customer. It's like buy the product and then you are on your own. I don't how they are considered a flagship killer. A good brand would always tries to provide some support to the customer instead of telling them you can return the device. I realized if I have talked to a bag of potatoes, most likely I would get some sort sort of answer regarding the battery capacity on my device. Last night I got like 8 hours of screen time and I had about 20% charge left. That's when I realized most likely the apps can't detect the second battery. When I saw this thread earlier today I realized that I am not the only one who has the question about the battery capacity with 8T. Thanks to those who provided some clarity here, shame on OnePlus for failing to support their products. This 8T was going to be my 3rd device, but now I am going to return my 8T and get a samsung s20, most likely would be a boring phone but at least I can get my questions answered by samsung and when I call samsung support they don't offer me a return label. Also I need to add that itlf you want to return something to OnePlus they will make you to return thier so called mystery gift as well, and it takes 48 hours to get a return label. Very disappointed!

    AccuBattey provides the same info the picture above, but it's taking it from hardware profile, so it will always shows 4500. The estimated battery capacity is what I am talking about, that's the actual capacity. Otherwise any battery app would tell you it's 4500 mAh battery but when it comes to estimated battery capacity they are showing the half which is 2250. Consider the 5 hours SOA reported by people, battery can be major issue with 8T. Maybe the two battery solution is failing. Thei put two batteries in the phone to have 60w fast charging possible without phone catching fire but now it seems maybe it was a bad idea. I called their support and they offered me to return the phone right away which is really odd. Maybe they aware of the battery issue with 8T but they are just not going to announce it publicly. I also twitted at them. I love OnePlus but they can't play games.
