    Hi there, are you sure it's practical to believe a third party app to find out whether the phone is fake or not?

    Where did you buy the device from? Where are you located?
    For battery charging, go to settings, battery and turn off optimised charging

    Even if the optimisation is on, one should not be worried as it learns the user behavior over period of time and adapts the battery charging algorithm.

    What about checking the About Phone in the Settings?

    Assuming battery issue due to fake device is not a good move IMO.
    As for the charging issue, do you observe whether your device gets hot or warm while charging? In Summers, the device tends to get warm due to which charging speeds reduce. Also, could you check if optimised charging is turned on from the settings?

    i tried both optimized charging on/off, same results it charges in 70 mins. I'm on open beta 4, also in about phone the model shows only kb 2001.

    I'm in dubai, and bought this phone from noon from seller called callmate.

    Ok. I just googled Callmate and Noon, seems to be popular though they are not official reseller of OnePlus phones in Dxb.

    I would suggest you get onto to the Stable version. And also can you tell if the beta 4 was installed when you bought the phone or you opted to use beta software?

    Well...you gave the answer yourself. That Beta label is because you are using beta software. Also, you cannot flash official OP software to fake device. Charging speed is not as simple as we wish - it depends on many factors, like temperature, load etc.

    Well, I'm pretty sure that is the issue. Also keep in mind that using beta could result different bugs all around the device, since charging is software controlled could be one there as well. I've never checked the SOT, when the battery is low I just plug it in :)
