    Hi everyone,

    I am Shailesh and this is my first thread I guess . So like most of you I have purchased One Plus 5T in the Launch week (Nov 2017) and after 2 years 4 months , I decided to get my battery replaced under offer (50% off on battery replacement)

    Before Replacing battery:
    I was getting around 12-14 hours of backup on light daily use (Whats-app and Twitter) . I don't play games or watch videos/movies on my phone.
    also after 50% off on battery I want to replace my battery soon.
    So I booked a battery replacement on One Plus Care app . They let you choose your service center based on your location. I didn't faced any issue in booking battery replacement.

    During Battery Replacement :-
    I choose Exclusive Service Center , Shipra Mall , Ghaziabad as it was nearest to me.
    They took my device and asked weather I want my phone to be formatted (they suggested to format as it improves performance) . So I took my SIM and submitted my phone.
    As usual went for a coffee and was little disappointed as they have started serving in plastic cups.

    I have to wait for around 1 hour to get my phone back . Actually battery replacement was done in 10 mins only but they need approval from Servify for discounted price. I paid Rs 600 online for same but was little skeptical for originality of battery changed.
    The service guy told me to charge my battery 100% and use it to <5% and charge it again . Do this cycle for 3 times for battery calibration.

    After battery Replacement:
    Calibrated my battery (3 cycles) for optimum result but didn't saw any major changes . Right now I am getting 24 hours of backup on full charge but it was more than 36 hours when I first purchased my phone. Maybe it is because of Android 9 or what but I was expecting a backup of more than 30 hours after replacement but it's surely improved from before.

    I will use it for 1 week more to see how are things going.

    Please suggest me how to improve battery life.

    One suggestion for One Plus Exclusive Service Centera : Please change the battery in front of customer.

    That is not supposed to happen if you got a new battery.
    Maybe you did not buy it from the right place or maybe the battery was manufactured a long time ago.
