    1) please post the battery stats screenshots for better understanding.
    2) install Accubattery app from store to check your phones battery health.

    It is advisable to take the screenshots when the battery is down to around 10~15% after a full 100% charge and use.
    This gives a fair idea about the apps consuming battery as well as the Awake and screen on time.
    But do not charge in between while taking the screenshot.

    I have the same issue after latest update. Just plugged out from charging with 100% and lost 6% within 25 mins usage on Whatsapp and news surfing. Not normal, is it?

    Same here, my discharge is going like crazy. I also have the problem that my OP 3 doesn't go into sleep mode by itself. It just keeps on flikkering on (witch partially explains the high percentage in battery usage). I hope it gets fixed soon. Anyone else with these symptons

    The app called Accubattery is the only accurate means of measuring battery capacity on Android devices. You need to run it through 3 or 4 charge cycles to allow it to compute the findings accurately. If your battery capacity is below 80%, the battery should be replaced.

    Apple has its own built-in battery health tool for iPhones but they have the same 80% minimum recommendation.

    Batteries lose their capacity over time, especially after a few years of charge cycles.

    A factory reset of your phone may also help with battery drain issues when battery health isn't the cause, but your stored files will be erased.
