    Opened this thread to see if anyone knows about this phone's battery life, as it has the same capacity as its predecessor but has a bigger screen.

    This is for those who are complaining about their 5t draining fast.In my case I am pretty much impressed with 5t's battery life and infact it is somewhat better than 5 as I owned Op5 previously.I easily get a bttery life of more than one day without using any battery saver or any third party app.I follow certain tricks to get a great battery life with every phone.Hope you guys follow this-
    1- Whenever you receive an update clear cache before updating and then install update and wipe cache in recovery reboot and then again clear cache from settings.

    2-Select the black theme for your OnePlus device as AMOLED display doesn't, consume battery for black or dark pixels.

    3- Use a wallpaper which is black theme based.

    4- Use the Google keyboard having black theme.

    5- Switch off always scanning for wifi in the wifi settings.You hardly need that

    6- Close all your background running apps when not using it.5t is blazing fast so you won't have to worry much about the reloading app speeds.As they are just matter of few seconds but can save hell lot of battery.

    7-I dont use ambient display as well..I just double tap the phone to see the time and weather.As face unlock is super fast.

    8- Do not use adaptive brightness.Go for manually setting the brightness according to preference.As adaptive gives more brightness than required which in turn eats away a chunk of battery.

    9- Location, Bluetooth, NFc etc should be kept On only when required.Close them immediately once you are done with it's use.

    10- Keep the phone display sleep time to as minimum as possible as it can save huge percent of battery life.

    These are the main points you have to follow to get a great battery life.These points won't affect your day to day usage of the phone much but can drastically improve the battery life.

    Turn on aggressive modes!

    1) Settings - > Battery - > Battery Optimisation - > Turn on advanced optimization (Top right corner)

    2) Settings - > Advanced - > Recent App Management - > Deep Clear!

    3) Don't leave apps running in background!!
    -> Clear all apps from 'Recent Apps' window before leaving your phone idle. As you've activated above two options, all background processes of apps will be closed as well. Just like the Greenify app!

    4) Turn on automatic brightness!

    5) Turn off sensors which you're not using like location, BT, tap to turn on screen, NFC etc.

    6) AMOLED screens conserve power on Dark/Black Colors. Go for a dark wallpaper and theme if you keep staring your homescreen for long times!

    I charge my 5T only once a day! (Sometimes twice if I'm gaming for hours.)
    My daily usage : fb, whatsapp, insta, snapchat, youtube and little bit of web browsing.
    Screen on time of 4.5 hrs till 58% battery.
    So I easily get 7-8hrs of screen on time indoors.

    My Battery Hacks for Oneplus 5T ( It also works for other Oneplus devices aswell [e]1f609[/e])

    1* WiFi scanning off -(by long pressing wifi icon--> scanning settings -->turn off scanning)

    2*Device manager off ( settings-->security and fingerprint-->device administrators-->disable device manager

    3*Location off and location history off( settings-->location-->Google history--> switch off

    4*Disable keep WiFi on sleep..Set as never

    5*Disable auto backup (settings--> backup--> turnoff auto backup)

    6*Clear cache (switch off and press volume down button+power button-->English-->clear cache

    7*Enable doze mode in developer settings

    8*You can also use battery saver mode if necessary*

    9* settings--> accounts--> turn off automatic sync for unwanted apps

    10* Don't clear apps from background

    11* Turnoff adaptive brightness

    12*turnoff location history for other Google accounts signed in your device

    13* Try other apps like friendly,simple instead of Facebook app

    14* Don't use your phone while charging

    15* Reboot your device once in a week

    16* Learn to calibrate your battery...you can find it on YouTube or just by googling
    (it is a simple process in which you completely drain your battery and charger to 100% couple of times to set it right)

    Hope this helps to improve your phone battery Stats. and let me know your tips in comments.

    Hey guys, so straight to the point to make your battery life better you need to clear the data for google play servides, the default google app= (Application list, storage, clear data) and wipe the cache of you phone = (power off, hold the power and volume button down, and select WIPE CACHE not factory reset.)
    By doing this, I have increased the SOT by


    almost an hour

    i suppose everybody get used to hear "clear cache from recovery" or " factory reset"...when battery settles and seems ok. then new update arrives and battery got worse again..

    anyway, I found something, which seems efective than clearing cache...

    you may loose some data related with apps or some of your apps may not work at first but at the end the side effect is negligible and might save factory reset..

    go into the files, setting and click show hidden files.. then delete all the hidden files starting with . and delete the folder named android, in which you may lose some app data but dont worry apps create this refreshed folder after the reboot.

    reboot the phone 2 times.. then go into recovery and clear cache 2 times..

    drain your battery until 15% then charge it..

    this may solve the problem of whom suffers from huge battery drain..

    I did it and now battery seems more stable...

    Battery Capacity is same for Oneplus 5 and Oneplus 5T but it all depends on how the screen is of Oneplus 5T, it might give more battery life or lesser than Oneplus 5 depending on the screen and software.

    I think it will be only a little lower because of the bigger screen. But shouldnt be a big difference compared to the battery life decrease depending on screen brightness.

    No. It is insufficient for daily usage.

    I normally get 2 days of use with the 5 even after 3 months, I’m guessing the 5T would at least get 1 day of use.

    Since a couple weeks, every time the phone is idling, it doesn't doze and just drains the entire battery overnight. Look at the attached picture. The second peak is what happened between 21:00 – 09:00. I used the phone two hours in this time. The doze mode doesn't kick in.

    I have Wi-Fi scanning turned off and no apps show up to drain the battery. It's almost entirely oxygen os with its wifi handling.

    No fixes help.

    the battery size is the biggest concern I have with OP5T. It's the reason I'm not sure if buying 5T is good idea.

    Does anyone have some links to YT battery tests from the early reviewers? I am looking constantly, but cannot find anything.
    I couldn't agree more...

    I've been looking for this since the launch too, but nothing came up. I hope there will be some reviews with battery tests before 5T goes to sale in two days.

    It all depends on power saving features when the phone is not in use. If they are good battery will most probably last for one day, with 4-6 hours SOT, but if they are not then battery will drain even if phone is not used!

    On my OP5, with advanced battery optimization, I usually have 48H of battery, with airplane mode at night, with 3H SOT.

    I'm not a huge user of games so it helps. But I think the battery is great, thank OP5
