    I second this - Absolutely disgusting battery draw. Drove into work and in 30 minutes went from 100% to 72% - battery says will be dead in 5 hours. Prior to the update would be at 50%+ on my drive home. (OnePlus 3)

    With the first Bug Nougat update, the Battery was Great. Much better then before. But yesterday I Installed the ~38mb Hotfix for Nougat and the Battery drain started!!!! My Phone is empty in 8 hours. And i so nothing with it. Is it possible to uninstall the Hotfix?? It was sooooo Great with the big Update. It all happens with my OP3

    not now but i will later. Android system is the highest battery user, followed by screen and Android os, which are tied.

    Yes it's draining. My phone does not last all day. I'm not even on it all day. Maybe they should have waited until they fixed that.:mad:

    Hi all,

    I have the same problem too, the battery drains too fast and the phone temperature is warm all the time. Factory reset and cache wipe did not solve the problem.
    I have checked the battery stats and "Android System", "Google Play Services" and "Android SO" are draining most of the battery all the time. "Inactive phone" also is taking a big chunk.

    Hey guys!

    With Android Marshmallow I had a SOT of not less than 6 hours on my OnePlus 3T (even though proximity sensor, gestures etc. were activated).

    Then I made the Nougat Update and the battery life got really worse. I had a SOT of 3-4 hours.

    Then I read all the threads and I made some changes:

    1) I activated Doze
    2) I activated aggressive Doze
    3) I deactivated gestures
    4) I deactivated the proximity sensor
    5) I wiped the cache
    6) I deactivated GPS, NFC, Bluetooth
    7) I deactivated auto-start of apps
    8) I use the dark theme
    9) I use dark wallpaper
    10) I activated the option "reduce data consumption"
    11) now I use the Gboard instead of SwiftKey
    12) I deactivated the Google search app
    13) I deactivated auto-update of the Google Play Store
    14) I deactivated Google Books, Google Music etc.
    15) I uninstalled the Facebook app and now I use an alternative app for Facebook, which is more energy-saving

    And after all of this now I have a SOT of 5 hours. So I considered every advice I found in your helpful threads (thx guys!) and I still do not get the same SOT as before - and you have to consider that none of these options were activated before!

    I can say I tried everything and I am convinced, the update made the battery life worse.

    If you have any other advice for me, I would be very grateful.

    Thx in advance!

    Best regards from Austria.

    I've bought a brand new one plus 3t recently and it immediately asked for the update!I wanted to dabble in OS 3.5 so I did wait for a week to and then later upgraded to nougat .
    But it feels like downgrade to me.
    I have to worry and keep an eye on my battery life .
    Everyone hates doing that.
    I can barely squeeze 5 hours of SOt with all the features off.
    I hope the One plus team can take care of this!

    I have noticed that my battery life got a lot worse after the latest update. Apparently the biggest drain is wifi. It is constantly draining battery even with the screen off. If you configure wifi to only be on when charging or when the screen is on, the battery life becomes a lot better. But I dislike having the wifi off with screen off.
