    I have tried this. currently android system is taking most battery. ive tried to calibrate battery by draining and charging to full. Have also tried to keep things stock but didn't work out. I'm not getting beyond 4 hours of sot.

    My battery is dropping to upto 50% without even using it but keeping the phone in on state but no calling, gaming or videos...not even camera is being used.

    I've also paired Gear s3 with phone which remains connected through the day. Gonna try switching it off today.

    System can be tricky. Sometimes high system can be due to the background optimizing has not been finished and wiped caches and such. But if the phone regularly lays on the charger an hour or so after having reached 100% it should be optimized.
    When I run the optimizing command it finishes very fast. So running it could be used as a verification too.

    The new update(10.3.0) has brought changes but at the cost of huge battery drains. it wasn't this bad on the previous build. The latest build is a battery hog. Please dev team send us a fix Asap ?

    With OX OS 10.0.3 battery life has increased, still not good but non terrible, I can say that now it's decent. Anyway it's still far below Andorid 9

    Any tips or guides to downgrade to stable Pie? Is 9.5.8 the best version to downgrade to? Currently on 10.3.0. GM21AA

    My battery life isnt so good, 3 week old phone, casual use with some games, minimum settings and battery saving tips only get me like 6 SoT max.

    There are some guides on the forum, try to search them. I already tell you that you must wipe all your data to downgrade and manually install the older version via local update.

    Hi Guys. over the last couple of days, my battery on my OP 7 Pro has started to lose charge at an alarming rate in Idle. for example today my battery has dropped 20% charge in less than 2 hours. and that is with battery saver turned on!!

    is anyone else seeing this issue?

    Not that heavy but yes, a lot of people are complaining about battery life, with Andorid 10 the situation is bad, battery drains much faster.

    The December update for my OnePLus 7 Pro: 10.3.0.GM21AA has put my battery in a rough state personally - I haven't had any issues since I got the phone a few months ago, and all of the updates have been great. Unfortunately, just keeping my phone idle at work, when I check it, I see it's declining at least 5% every hour or so. It's a bit unusual because checking my battery usage everything looks normal (1% here, 2% there [very minor usage]), so it seems it's something else that's unrelated to the usage of the phone due to the update.

    For reference, prior to this update, I actually had a hard time getting it below 80% on a full day of off/on usage. We hope to see an update that resolves this issue or at least a response/solution to our problems. I love the phone otherwise!! Cheers!

    EDIT: Today I've lost 16% in 2 hours from the phone sitting idle ("since the last charge") - Total Usage is "1% battery loss from 14% of active screen usage". Applications haven't been used today as of yet - no data.

    Def something weird going on! I have my device in Battery Saver mode so should not be declining this much so quickly!

    When the phone was running on Android 9 Pie, I used to get around 7 to 8 hours of screen on time. Now after Android 10 update it has drastically dropped to 3.5 to 5 hours of screen on time.

    After Oxygen OS 10.3.0, it has improved slightly but nothing magical. I will update here if there's any improvement. If anyone has any tips or solution regarding this issue, please share.

    I'm running 10.3 on a T-Mobile pro 7 (converted to international software) and consistently get 8+ SOT no problem....how long since you've updated? may be because battery stats haven't leveled off or an app isn't optimized for Android 10.

    Oh ok, it usually is a problem related to Andorid 10, I've tried 4 version (.0/.1/.2/.3) and even if in different ways all of them are worse than Andorid 9 for battery life. If you are already facing it on 9 it's weird, you should try to investigate in battery settings or maybe with apps like betterbatterystat

    My issues with the battery started after the latest software update. When fully charged, it would state that I have at least 17 hours of life left. Now it gives me 7 hours of life with nothing being used. This is only in wifi

    Update: two days after posting this the battery life returned back to its previous good performance. I'm attaching pictures below of regular usage. With constant usage it will last me a full day and a bit more so this is great. I want to say kudos to the support for teaching out to me regarding the matter. The support for this phone is one of the reasons I'm with this company for close to 4 years.
