    hey there guys! Recently I updated to 5.0.3, since then, Google photos has been draining so much battery, I tried Disabling the app, forcing it to stop, but its still draining battery, what can I do?

    as you can see, it's already forced to stop, and disabled, but for some reason, still drains battery

    Well i assumed you force stopped it after you noticed the drain, so the damage was done. Try a reboot/clear cache.

    I mean, yes, but now that it is already stopped, it's still draining as you can see on the pic, photos used 36% now it's 37,

    Start with a reboot/cache clear, usually that solves battery probs.

    I had the same issue, only smaller drain. You can go to apps, find Google photos and disable background processes. You can also enter the settings within the app and disable auto sync. Those worked for me.

    I'm having the same issue but instead Google Play store is draining my battery. I even tried to force stop it but being a system app I guess it wakes up automatically and also does it have anything to do with Open Beta 3?

    EDIT: I just now tried to wipe cache and reboot let's see if it works or not but then this happened to me 2 days back as well so I wonder if it's a random thing or bug in the build

    I don't think so, I'm not running Beta, it's probably and Oreo Issue, Only solution I found so far, was stopping Photos then Limiting background processes, in your case this wont work though, since Play store must have access to background processes. I believe only solution will be an update or wiping data

    Exactly that won't work in my case even thought I have limited the background access to play store, play store being play store it won't stop anyway. So I hope someone has a solution to it or maybe OnePlus is aware of something like this
