Terrible Battery Life

    I have an OPO and the battery life is great. I got a OPX and the battery life is terrible, barely lasts 12 hours with the same usage my OPO after over a year still has enough juice to keep going through the following morning, so about twice as much battery life.

    Has anyone else experienced this and has any solutions?

    You should have thought that before buying OPX, it merely has 2600 mah battery, which is very low in comparison to the RAM, Processor and performance.... It was expected to give less life, noting great to think about that

    It's hard to make any sort of claim on your post if you don't post usage/battery stats screenshots.

    ''12 hours of same usage as OPO'' doesn't say anything about what you do in those 12 hours, and its very easy to drain a phone in 12 hours if you go nuts with it.
    I had an iPhone 5s before ordering OPX and I could easily drain it in 8 hours if I was busy on it every single minute.

    We need more stats/info to back up your claim, especially since most people get 4-5 hours of screen time on their OPX which looks in line with most Android phones.

    Have you been terminating your recently used Apps? If I recall correctly, having these running in the background will substantially affect your battery consumption

    It has a reletively smaller battery at 2525 mah.. Compare to 3100 mah on opo ...

    But it has a lower clocked processor + smaller amoled screen ...

    I hope the battery life is bad because of gpu bug and bad management of cpu cores

    Could you please provide screenshots of ram usage and some other stats possibly of the battery to make comparisons?
    As rightly pointed by another poster, a generic statement of 12 hrs of OPO or OPX doesn't give any indication of usage pattern etc.

    Whats the best way of providing stats for comparison (eg. run a video continuously, run a software)?

    I was getting terrible battery life out of OPO but I factory reset it, now its battery life is back. I can run a test on both phones.

    I'm not here claiming OPX is bad, I'm keeping it, I just want the battery to last longer (I understand it has a lower capacity than OPO but the smaller screen and lower processor clock speed should make this marginally worse than OPO)

    Thanks for the help

    Hi. I use dolphin browser in night mode when I can. Should save battery since opx uses amoled screen.

    Since OPO runs on cm12 while OPX runs on oxygen2.2, there might be differences introduced because of the different ROMs

    It would be best to first understand how these are effecting each device before independently trying to ascertain device battery performance

    For RAM, I would suggest take a screenshot while having similar apps open in the background both on OPO and OPX

    Then go for a battery performance app like GSM battery and let it analyze what is draining your battery percentage and cpu minutes

    Also, download a wakelock monitor (there are plenty on play store) to understand if any process is causing additional wakelocks/ some app is responding differently on oxygen than cm

    Equipped with these stats maybe you would be at a better position to make conclusions

    Please note OPO and OPX are not supposed to be at the same levels. OPO is a flagship killer while OPX focuses on design and size. All the investigation should be on why is the battery lasting less than 17-18 hrs which is what the average 2600 mah battery should output

    Forever an OPO fan

    +1. OPX is the companies output focused on design and size. I personally use it with a powerbank and am loving every minute of it

    Hopefully the new marshmallow battery saving features should help to extend the battery life of the options.

    I played a game for 2.5 hours and had an extra 1 hours SoT. Still 25%left. Screenshot_2015-11-18-02-37-04.png Screenshot_2015-11-18-02-36-56.png

    Thanks for the info, battery life is very essential, will reconsider buying.

    You came to OPX from an inferior device, didn't you?

    It's only day two of my exprience with OPX but i admit I am a bit disappointed by battery as well.
    You guys think it will get better with usage and after first days of use it will calibrate or that's it our only hope is an update?

    Pretty disappointed too. My mi2s lasted me 2 days with its 2000mah battery...

    Mine is not great either. I'm getting about 3 hours screen on. Unplugged at 7am and now down to 3 percent. It's far from terrible and that did include gaming but my old z3 compact was better, mind that had smaller lower res screen and bigger battery. I think standby battery life can be improved though. Lost too much doing nothing. Which was also the case with z3 compact once on lollipop. I think marshmallow should cure it.

    Poor optimization for sure. I'm sure it will get better, though the opo is nothing to go by. I can categorically state that the opo was phenomenal on cm11s then it went to ship after that then came back up a little. The 1+X should theoretically be able to match the opo as it should consume less power
