    My OnePlus 8t used to charge 100% in around 40 minutes as stated by the company.
    But now after 6 months, it is taking 50 minutes to getting fully charge even when the phone is switched off.

    And the phone is also heating very quickly while browsing, when hotspot is switched.
    This should not be happening because company claims that they have done some liquid cooling in the battery which prevents phone from heating but phone is still heating.

    I am not facing such issues, try clear all caches and then try.

    Some tips: do not use phone till 0% and never charge phone fully 100% charge your phone when it reaches about 15% and unplugged it after 90.

    Now if you facing heating issue while browsing then I think clear cache will work for you, but as you use hotspot all phone get heated but this phone not heat as much as others. So if cleaning cache not working then visit service center and ask them for software upgrade.

    Am facing the same issue. As mentioned in comment, I used OP6, in that there is no heating issue as this. But this mobile is heating like anything. Sometimes can't hold in hand. Hope in next patches/updates they will resolve this issue.

    Many factors can affect battery and heat, even ambiant air temperatures above 20°c can slow down charging or cause heat issues, as it gets hotter the phone cannot dissipate heat quick enough so may even slow the charging down as a safety measure as well.

    It's a universal issue on heating while charging of OnePlus 8t. Also, after recent patch update, charging also happens very slowly.
    Hope other 8t users will agree to this complaint.pls clear of this issue in next patch update.
