    Hi,
    I had a OnePlus 7 since last November and for whatever reason it seems to slow down more and more after each system update? Now it take a good 3-ish seconds to open most apps (whereas on my old OP5, even after 2+ years of use and no factory reset, it only took 1-ish second). I have 60% empty space and 50%-ish empty memory, cleaned the temp files using Google Files, restarted the phone a few times, no change. Anybody experiencing the same? Any idea/suggestion?
    Cheers

    your phone apps need optimization maybe.

    do not clear cache again with apps/recovery mode.

    plug phone to 100% overnight for 1 week and then see if its better.

    make sure phone is not powered off during charge.

    App caches can contribute to the performance slowdown of a smartphone. This is basically temporary data that is stored on the phone. Therefore, it is advisable to clear the app cache from your OnePlus 7 smartphone.


    To clear the cache, follow the steps below.

    Step 1: Go to Settings.

    Step 2: Select "Storage."

    Step 3: Under the Storage category you will espy the "Cached data" option. Tap on the same.

    Step 4: Upon seeing the prompt select "Ok."

    This process will clear the cache on your OnePlus 7 smartphone, giving the device more free storage space and enhancing the performance.

    dont do this! this hurts the battery, as its turn off charging, then fall to 99% and charging again to 100%.
    this process is bad for battery lifespan.
    this will not help anything !

    do you know how ART optimization works?

    its required to trigger the ART optimization mechanism implemented by google which only gets activated if you have 100% charge.

    I wish I had a concrete answer that could help, but I don't :(
    Apart from that is seems to me he has issues, just want to make sure that issues are being reported so they can be looked in to by the developers.

    People complain in the forum, but don't actually report things, and just magically except everything to be fixed in whatever next update is not how it works with software unfortunately.

    u can try uninstalling the OnePlus launcher in play store and donot update the the launcher.
    this might help in speeding up opening of apps.
    also after uninstalling restart your phone.
