    I've had my phone a few months now and never once has it lived up to its review/ baring the camera. it takes me at least 5hrs to charge and last a day if I don't use it. ive tried so many chargers and nothing changed.

    Its taking you 5hrs to charge the OP5 using the official dash charger?
    Where did you buy the device from?

    bruh what? this phone lasts me 2 days with 8 hours SOT l, 4 hours each day. I don't use the dash charger and it still goes from 12-15% to 95-100% in about 1 and a half hour.

    If you are using the charger that came with the phone even 0 to 100% should take no longer than 1.5 hours

    A day to charge ? Don't use Cheap Solar Mobile chargers from China.. use the official Dash charge adapter and cable.

    5 hours is a huge stretch ....with the dash charger (phone off from 0 to 100 takes exactly 1 hour and 3 minutes (I actually tested thay ..and the phone is a month and a half old I have done 2 updates it's...no cash clearing done so far...
    And I presume with the phone on it might take about 1 hr and 20+/- 10 minutes

    with an unofficial charger will take you longer but I don't think anything more than 3 hrs is normal...

    (I hope u used a wall charger not with pc)

    You might have to get that checked out..
    Those are excellent values...
    Amy tweaks? or fresh out of the box experience?

    If this is the case, why haven't you contacted CS yet? It shouldn't take 5 hours to charge any 2017 phone using any type of connection o_O

    Leo, either you've been conned by a third party seller or you don't use the dash charger because if there's one thing that works perfectly on Oneplus phones it's dash charging.:rolleyes:
    Or of course you're just trolling, in which case it was a sad effort.o_O

    no nothing at all. I'm in love with this phone. btw maybe its worth noting that the charger I'm using is a Samsung Fast Adaptive Charger?

    the dash charger is the exact charger I use thank-you very much. I've never used a 3rd party charger, only the official one plus one. if I didn't have this problem I'd say it's the best phone in history.

    I must have been unlucky then. I'm going to send it for inspection and repair. if it gets resolved then I can agree the one plus 5 is by far the best phone I've ever used.

    Then there's something seriously wrong with your device mate. 5hours is ridiculous. I'd contact support if I was you.
    You using the original cable as well?

    Get them to sort it out. That is most definitely NOT normal.

    yeh every charger I've purchased is the official charger. it's a shame because I love the phone but knowing it's not performing to its full standard's is depressing.

    What a joke !!
    I don't care about the values present in the paper but in my case the OP5 gets fully charged in just 55 mins to 60 mins.
