    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?

    Clear Cache by selecting Google Play Services in Apps and Notification then all Apps and in storage select clear cache, restart your phone and then check again.

    I can't complain. Attached are my sot stats since I've owned my 5t with various ROMs, kernels. There's maybe 5 or 6 missing where I had it USB to PC, or did lots of rom flashing which messed up the stats. These are all from 100% to 10-15%. Almost all on wifi, with WiFi off at night. Latest 9.0.1 is great!

    There is no heating issue.
    What do you do when it's heating and what are the temperatures?

    I have Oneplus 5 purchased in Nov 2017

    I observe after last update to 9.0.1 my phone battery doesn't last for more than 5-6 hrs with same amount of usage.

    Any one else have noticed this issue?
