    Yap, I did within 14months of purchase from Chennai. Would suggest you to do at the earliest as these parts are getting out of stock. It was good. Changed within 30mins. Prices are mentioned in their website.

    same issue over here. since the 9.0.9 update the battery is draining extremely fast.
    i noticed that especially whatsapp 2.19.308 is making the battery issue even worse.

    I'm in the same boat, battery life is ridiculous. Never before have I had to bring my charger to work in the 2 years that I've owned the oneplus 5t. Since the update, my phone will drain from 65% to 15% in 3.5 hours with very little usage.

    Lo stesso problema con batteria, dopo il sistema di aggiornamento. Ero particolarmente orgoglioso del op5 soprattutto per la durata.fino a qualche giorno fa una carica mi durava dalle 8:00 am fino alla sera 23/24 con utilizzo medio_Ora dopo aggiornamento alle 13 è già al 40% e devo ricaricare.Speriamo in un nuovo aggiornamento che risolva il problema

    Ever since the last update, i have noticed charging issues like anything and battery optimization issues.. The battery that used to last for about 14 hours now only lasts till 10 tops. For some reason the charger is not being detected.

    I am wondering if someone else also facing the same issue with their old 5T? Or is it something that these guys are doing deliberately to make us upgrade?

    just the 7 hours battery life from 100% to 0% on the One Plus 5 since update to 9.0.9 with battery saver on at all times. Thanks, One Plus! fix please!

    when this happened a couple of updates ago I was able to switch the phone off and on again to stall the drain, because of overheating. this time it's not overheating, and switching off and on again does nothing. load of pants.

    I was able to fix similar issue: fast drain (usual 1.5 day battery dropped to less than a day or half a day) and also inability to use rapid charging (possibly disabled due to high constant drain), which started after 9.0.9 by reinstalling the app that showed as top consumer in battery stats. For me it was WhatsApp. After this the battery longevity got back to normal and rapid charging was again operating as advertised. In parallel I also played with optimization (on whatsapp) and adaptive battery settings but not sure they affected anything. Hope this helps somebody.
    Just make sure to do a full backup from whatsapp app itself prior reinstall so you could get back to same state later.

    [QUOTE = "C1573373420312, post: 21020071, membro: 2538665"] Sono stato in grado di risolvere un problema simile: esaurimento rapido (batteria normale da 1,5 giorni caduta a meno di un giorno o mezza giornata) e incapacità di utilizzare la ricarica rapida (possibilmente disabilitato a causa dell'elevato consumo costante), che è iniziato dopo 9.0.9 reinstallando l'app che si è mostrata come il consumatore principale nelle statistiche della batteria. Per me era WhatsApp. Successivamente, la longevità della batteria è tornata alla normalità e la ricarica rapida è tornata a funzionare come pubblicizzato. In parallelo ho anche giocato con l'ottimizzazione (su whatsapp) e le impostazioni della batteria adattiva, ma non sono sicuro che abbiano influenzato nulla. Spero che questo aiuti qualcuno.
    Assicurati di fare un backup completo dall'app Whatsapp stessa prima di reinstallarlo in modo da poter tornare allo stesso stato in un secondo momento. [/ QUOTE]

    Let's hope the optimization in upcoming android 10 update take us back to the times where our 5t had a brilliant battery life ...nougat/Oreo were the best in terms of performance and battery..pie always been a mixed experience so far..initial pie updates were gud but in last few battery drain is a headache.. can't help it need to live with a charger/power bank till get fixed or i should save for a op8 considering my 5t's life ...

    It looks like whatapp related battery drain issues are all over the news with oneplus (5,6) marked as most highly affected. Indeed, just hope remains. Either update to 10 or another whatsapp update will fix this entirely. Current workaround is to reinstall the app, which improves the situation though not fixes it.
