    You've been very helpful, thank you! you're right I do free space for a little while, but the moment I start using all those apps again well, makes no sense keep clearing the cache!

    Yes, but ... as before ... the phone will do it on its own if you just plug your phone in at night

    Yes, I only wanted to test it because I have received the OTA update for OnePlus 7. After the update, the command took about 11 minutes, while in normal cases I think it could take about 2 minutes.

    By the way, I know that the phone will do it on its own, but knowing that it takes that time (2 minutes), I don't think it could be bad if you execute it manually sometimes (sometimes, not always).

    Well apart from changing the ROM, not really

    BTW that message might just be benign. Can't say for sure

    I completely disable JIT on my phones for security reasons. The command returns in under a second on my phone

    I did talk about speed of JIT, AOT and the interpreter in the first post

    I have now added information about the security offered by each method in the first post. Obviously JIT is the least secure

    Tried on OnePlus 7T, as experienced sluggish interface more and more and only reboot fixes it for a couple of days. Here is the screenshot after more than a week charging overnight every night (108 hours after reboot):
    And here is the screenshot after charging in the morning till 92-95%, also 108 hours after reboot:
    Note the Android System usage. After full wipe it was totally fine for 500 hours without reboot and then sluggishness started again.
    My point is - sleep mode in OOS is already buggy enough, so charging overnight does not make that much of a difference.

    Sleep mode in OOS is not buggy. AOSP is supposed to keep apps running as much as possible. You report intended behavior as a bug

    This is the reason why oxygenos comes at the list on https://dontkillmyapp.com

    Sorry for being too harsh. My concern is mostly about that after ~70 hours without reboot even with all OOS battery features and RAM optimization turned off the whole interface gradually loses its fluidness, recognizing 40% of short single taps as "tap and hold", swipes as "hold and swipe" and the phone itself getting a bit warmer - the more time without reboot, the merrier - along with Android System drain almost four times higher than on other (Android One) device I have. I may be wrong, but this does not really look like expected behavior to me, more like stateful infinite loop under the hood...

    I got OP8, after every update I was clearing cache and couple of time I did a factory reset. What to do right now? Should I just let it charge overnight , or do a factory reset then charge it overnight?

    Thank you for the post!

    You helped me get 8hrs SoT with 30 hrs standby on my Nord. That too within just 2 days following what you mentioned. Before doing this was hardly getting something like 6hrs SoT with 20hrs standby. I see that standby drain has reduced a lot. Though, I still see Android System draining like 14% something. I hope within a week of following this charging overnight, that will reduce further.

    Your post should be pinned to top in the General section. This is a solution to most battery drain problems regardless of the phone model.
    Good work, mate! Thanks a lot!

    Don't do any of those resets now. Just charge overnight for a week. You can resume normal charging after that probably with no harm. Do that after every update.

    My phone is 1% now. Should I let it turned off then turn on and charge overnight?

    Did you not read the post at all? Charge it overnight keeping it turned on. No turning off phone.

    What exactly did you do? Did you just charge the phone a few days overnight?

    Yes. That's all. Charging it overnight while turned on for 2 days now. Will do it for 5 days after every new update.
