    Hey GuyZ,

    Its been almost 3 weeks since I'm using my 8gb 128 gb Op8 version. I'm pretty happy with the performance but I'm facing heavy battery drainage issue.

    As per company's claim & several Youtube battery drain test , Op8 battery is known to best in the market however I'm only getting 5-6hrs of onscreen timing despite being a moderate user.

    I use my Op8 only for calling & surfing. I'm not playing any games on my device as such.Online claims are for 10-12hrs on screen time for heavy usage however I'm not getting half of it despite being a moderate user ( also using dark mode)

    Pls help if anyone of u know the solution or facing similar issues.

    (P.s- The above youtubers claim to be using 90hz refresh rate & getting 10-12hrs of screen time so pls dont suggest downgrading regresh rate as a solution )

    Thanks , guyz do help here

    I understand youtubers claim are of continuous usage with screen on, that is not the right way we should correlate with I guess, I am getting on average 6-7 hours of screen on time, my usage pattern is calls, heavy whatsapp, social media surfing, Outlook for office with intune, some asphalt 9 for 30 mins a day... with this pattern my fully charged phone lasts for 1.75 days, almost 40 hours

    Bro , as per your usage patterns , u're still using the device way more aggressive than me , still getting 6-7hrs of screen on time whereas i am only getting somewhere 5-5:30 hrs , that's what concerns me the most in here.

    I cannot figure whether there's a hardware issue or something in software bcoz i think the backup is way less.

    that is what I've been getting recently, I use to get 4 SOT and 30hrs between charges, then I noticed Facebook was draining my battery.... I decided to delete the FB app, reinstall it, drain my battery and then recharge to 100%. since then I am getting better SOT, using 120 and FHD.

    I would say one of your apps is draining battery, maybe delete the top 5 and reinstall them. See if that helps. your drain cursive is pretty much the same, just keeps going down, this was the same with mine, but since I deleted apps now my curve is different

    Reset your phone in recovery and only restore contacts from your google backup. Nothing else. Then come back and report your battery life.
    Some apps drain a LOT more than others. You have to realise this. ( example: Google DUO kills your SOT )
    People coming here posting stats with huge SOT should post the apps they used. Otherwise it makes no sense. Just for bragging rights ?

    i deleted the google applications that I dont use. Is the phone still adjusting on my usage since its just with me for less than 48 hrs? I dont know if its a software problem or my phone is damaged. But as of now, 2 hrs of minimal usage (messenger and this app) its on 86%. But Im just worried since it doesnt live up to the descriptions about the battery life.
