Agreed! This issue should be made more aware!
Good glad you are highlighting this issue
Have you tried lowering the resolution to 1080p and lowering the refresh rate to 60hz?
In my opinion, for a phone screen, I think 1440p and 90hz are non-essential luxury that only kills battery life with very little benefit. I would have preferred a 1080p/60hz/flat display with better battery life. For the increased cost put into that screen, it would have been preferable if that extra cost went into things like IP rating, wireless charging, and better camera.
Bro, post some stats before the paper soldiers arrive to give you grief.
It shouldn't be as low as reviews are stating, as One Plus have heavily advertised the 90hz and the higher resolution. Then what would be the point of buying a phone with these specs they as advised if you can't hardly have them turned on for poor battery performance...
There is an increase in battery size from the last versions of OnePlus devices. OnePlus Oxygen OS has been a major breakthrough previously for software optimisation. The battery capacity on earlier models are extravagant irrespective of the tech boost they have. The same goes for the OP7 pro. The battery according to me is big enough to power the phone at full capacity. Also a missing factor is the dynamic frame rate option I might add. This definitely draws power. But as far as I have seen with two social media app always running in background, the battery performance as compared to earlier is far below average.
Absolutely apt !!
Oh yeah, my point exactly. Hence why, after thinking about it for a few days, I decided against upgrading to 7 Pro.
I only suggested lowering the resolution and the refresh rate to see whether or not the subpar battery life is the main culprit causing the issue. If the 7 Pro continues the trend with subpar battery life even after lowering the resolution and the refresh rate, then we really have a serious issue at hand.
Another post topic made regarding poor battery life on the One Plus 7 Pro. Looks like its becoming a issue for a lot of users...
Dont forget the OP actually only runs in QHD when you have content of that definition, as it knocks down automatically to 1080p when you don't.
So in reality if you dont have a wallpaper higher than 1080P, you will spend nearly all your time at 1080P.
I have tried lowering the resolution and frames but it hardly shows any improvement in battery life.
But frame rate is locked at 90Hz at all time untill you change it to 60Hz. This should be made dynamic and should change with situation just like the resolution. There is no meaning of viewing a wallpaper in 90Hz.
This is where people should be asking one plus to optimise this. I have anyway via feedback.
I know that but as it stand right now that is all you can do and scroll. There are limitations on this tech and after using it for almost 5 years Sharp hasn't solved them.
No gameplay is available at 90hz, so it pretty much renders the screen as battery draining gimmick.
I hope one plus looks into this very soon.
That is a testament to how well made the OnePlus phones have been, and I am glad to be an owner of the 6T. Outside of the monsters like the Huawei P/Mate phones that I can't use in the USA, I think the 6T belongs in the battery champ group.
So if you are used to this, perhaps the battery life may be disappointing with the 7 Pro. But I have faith that future software update can address this issue.
Dynamic frame rate option is sorely missed, and I agree with you on that wholeheartedly.
Good point. Although I reckon that just putting the phone at FHD and leaving it there may save a bit more battery life. With Samsung phones, I never saw much in return with QHD, so I have left it at FHD, and never felt like missing out.
Hmm... I don't know. I would hope that you stay optimistic though because the phone is new and there will be plenty of time for OnePlus to further optimize the battery life with future software updates. At least the screen looks very nice!
Their selling point is this new screen, so hopefully it all works out for the better.
change to 60hz and fhd+
I hope one plus looks into this issue.
Just look at all the YouTube reviews regarding poor battery life.
