    Kangoala , Jan 10, 2018 :
    My 5T batt life has dramaticllay changed from 24+ hrs to 8 to 10 in last few days. I've had the phone about 2 weeks only. I held off rebooting for the latest upgrade to 4.7.6 due to concerns I'd read about here but since last nights charge things took a huge downturn so I rebooted, cleared cache as directed but things are still really shitty. PLS help.
    I have gone in as developer and shut down as many things as I am willing to do with my extremely limited knowledge....factory rest scares me as I'll lose everything right??
    What should I do,

    I am too experiencing this issue. I have chosen this phone just because of its battery capabilities and dash charging technology but now I feel heartbroken.. ONE PLUS I HAVE LOST FAITH IN YOU

    Read this thread .. perhaps you may find a fix that works for you ...

    Also, I did read one of the users stating in some thread to discharge the device and the recharge to 100%. Then without disconnecting the charger reboot the device into recovery and wipe cache, and reboot and then disconnect the charger. I really do not know the logic here but I guess no harm in trying out either...:)

    Also, if all else fails ... Download 4.7.6 from oneplus support download links and sideload it.... needless to say that this would require you to backup all your data ... ;-)

    and as always searching the forum is always a good way to find useful tips and fixes ... :)

    I've upgraded my phone to 4.7.6 right after I got the phone.
    Only after that I started to setup my phone. Results? 8 hours of SoT, 2% drain through the night and no other problems.
    Just do a factory reset and setup your phone again and your problems will be gone

    Damn I only lose about 2% overnight. Have you tried turning off WiFi? Helped me preserve battery.

    All the team can really do is improve optimisation for the phone, it all really depends on the user and how they use the phone.

    I am also facing same issues. Standby drain is negligible but regular drain while usage is significantly noticable
