    I have not updated yet due to the batt issue mentioned by a lot of users. Is the update necessary for the next update to be compatible?

    hi one plus team could you work on battery drain issue one plus 5t update. before the update I used to get battery for 20- 23 hrs.

    Could someone provide a solution or release the new update for the fix. I have already optimise the battery. so no need to suggest optimisation.

    wtf is 14% usage of Android OS? This problem is occurring since I updated to latest OS version. Before I update, I'm sure that there was about 65-70% battery left for same usage. I've tried most of solutions about battery problem like clearing cache, apps optimization, turning on app wifi multi broadcasting filter and so on. I read a lot of threads about solving battery drain but i can't fix this...

    What should I do now?

    After 5.1.7 my screen-on time has gone down to two hours, and my battery life is really bad. Im not even getting halfway through the day. What should I do?

    Guys, My OnePlus 5 battery has started showing some anomalous behaviour recently. I'm having following issues:
    1. Full battery charging takes around 2:30 hours.
    2. Battery is draining too fast and is inconsistent. One cycle gets drained in 5-6 hours of SOT while the next in 2-3 hours (light usage, most of the times).
    3. The phone shows "low battery shutdown" at 20-35% level. While this was rare in beginning, it now happens most of the times. I don't remember seeing less than 20% level in some last days.
    4. Sometimes, the battery level gets stuck at a point and do not move for like 1 hour and so.
    I've tried following methods to resolve the issue:

    1. Thinking of this as a software problem, I downgraded from 5.1.7 to 5.1.4 and then to 5.1.3. Being on 5.1.3 seems to solve slow charging problem but looks like "fast charging" has come with equally "fast discharging".
    2. Wiped cache in recovery (obviously!!!).
    3. Battery calibration method as directed in first post.
    Any other suggestions are welcomed.

    Also, I'm confused about the method in first post. Are we supposed to perform step 1 and 2 for 2-3 times or is it that one set of step 1-2 in three months or so?? Some doubt clearance is required.

    Thanks in advance.

    This guide is very dangerous there is a lot of cases where some phones when turning off from zero battery they wont turn on again, or the battery gets damaged! This thread is made from technician or just a member?
