    Hi , I see the OnePlus 8t has a Li-pol battery in it rather than a Li-ion , I've been reading about the difference and the Li-pol doesn't seem to store as much charge , so after a couple of years what's the battery like of OnePlus phones that use a Li- Pol battery ??? Also I take it that the OnePlus doesn't have the issue with memory effect in the battery with it being Li-pol ?? Thanks

    I think all phones use Li-Po batteries nowdays.

    I think he's talking in regards to battery longevity, rather than battery capacity.

    Iam 👍🏻 the Li- Pol doesn't seem to have the same charge holding longevity as a Li- ion , so was wondering what's a OnePlus like after a couple of years

    I haven't had my 8T long enough to notice, but I do know there are two batteries in it instead of one which should help with longevity.

    Not used the 8T but my OPPO Find X2 Pro has a very similar battery setup to the 8T (Li- Pol battery split into 2 equal parts).

    It's not had a couple of years use yet, but had solid use since October last year, and battery life hasn't decreased at all (if anything it's improved).

    I realise it's different software etc but it gives an indication about the battery setup, and how is likely to fare for you.

    Few people keep a phone long enough to even worry about it anymore.
    The differences are so minor, and the way each person uses their phone, as well as the variables involved in the way we may charge our phones, makes it nearly impossible to measure any difference at all.
    I would not worry about it at all, nor would I ever consider the type of battery in the decision to buy or not.
