    Am using OnePlus 5 since its launch and it has been great. Recently updated to OB 22 and liking the taste of pie.

    In the past month, I noticed a drop in the battery back up. I used to get 5hrs to 5.30hrs of SOT.

    Now am getting only around 4hrs.

    Just wanted to check the battery health. Any suggestions?

    How about geekbench?

    What's the screen brightness level you use?
    I use around 50% brightness and getting 4 hours SOT since a week. Earlier with same usage pattern I was getting 5.5 to 6 hours. I have a 5T

    As everybody is telling you, your screen brightness might be high or you use the phone a lot.
    If you want to be really sure, download Wakelock Detector [Lite] to see if you have any apps that are sucking your battery in the background and if there are, uninstall those apps and install alternatives or freeze the apps.

    8 hour screen on time is definitely not bad. Its great. Have you had more than 8 hour screen on time before?

    Well I recently updated to 5.1.7 and.... yeah Battery life certainly has degraded.


    P.S. I Fully Formatted my device after the update and have already done battery calibration. Doesn't work. Seems like OP messed up something with the update.

    I just realised that out 8 cores 4 of the high performance cores never go to sleep(they are never stopped) and the 4 low powered cores doesn't go lower than 518Mhz while the 4 high performance cores(which should be stopped when there is no high intensity task) cannot go lower than 806Mhz. won't it utilize more battery if they are always running. What's the point of having 4 efficient core and 4 high performance core if they are going to always stay active. Can someone Explain?

    Hey guys!
    Back from 3-4 days I'm noticing that my phone is getting charged from 15 to 100% under an hour. And it's discharging as fast from before.. Previously it used to take around 1.25 hours to charge.. Any suggestions or tips would be helpful. I already did factory reset but to no avail..
