    So, I bought this 8T model and after the latest update it's charging considerably slower than initially. Earlier it used to charge in around 40min. Now it's taking an hour or so...


    Any workarounds/ Solutions guys??

    Check that there isn't nothing stuck in the phone port that could prevent the cable to be seated correctly.

    There's nothing bro. Its brand new 🆕 with not even dust. I saw couple of guys complaining about the same as well.

    If the phone is brand new, there could be some issue with the phone or the wall plug... Do you know anyone with a 8T that could try your charger?

    Happened after the latest update. Earlier I would say it's charging under 45min... I tried charging with the phone switched off..& it was charging quickly. With phone turned on its slow....any solutions..

    Then it has to be something that broke in the last update... Wait for a fix in upcoming update.

    But there seems to be a problem with the charging speed when charging after I got the 11.0.8.10 update , I always have to unplug it from the phone and plug it back in for it to actually fast charge seems like that is hanging , but don't know if it the charger or the phone itself

    I usually stay between 20-80% charge cycle. Once a week or 10-12 days, I may do a full 100% charge.

    Helps to preserve battery life span.

    Here are my stats.

    I have that charging optimization turned on & ambient temperature is pretty high, 33c !!

    If I turn off that charging optimization option & charge the device in A/C room with ambient temps at around 25c, I see much faster charging time

    But even with optimised slower charging, 24 mins of charge gives me a good 20 hours. I am pretty ok with it :D

    Thanks.

    In that case it's always better to charge with device turned off. LOL.

    I have a better suggestion to improve battery life and lifespan. Uninstall that app (AccuBattery) and stop looking at useless stats.

    I'm on the latest update too, and although I haven't paid too much attention to how long the phone takes to charge, I'm pretty sure it is fast enough (about 45 minutes to charge from 15% to 100%). That's good enough with today's technology.

    Yes. It's respectable. Bu Lt having moved from Realme X2 pro which charged it in 30min..I felt it to be a bit slow. On the brighter side, this doesn't heat up like X2 pro while charging. 😀😀

    Have you tried turning off optimised charging in battery settings? It makes your phone charge slower because its better for the battery.
