    Maybe a good solution is to have auto query the first time you installed any apps, of how important it is to received any constant apps notification while running at background. The same function to opt between silence, vibrate and ring as the volume slider which you can choose in setting, at least i can use the slider more other than going to the movies. It seems Pie already have a version of this feature https://www.androidcentral.com/how-save-battery-life-android-p

    Well, that will certainly fix your problems with the phone. You fail to understand the very basic concept here, that everyone here is a user, same as you, trying to help each other. No one here is an employee of OnePlus, and more important, no one is gonna help you with the disrespectful attitude.

    By reading the posts from the last few days, I tend to be glad I have the T-Mobile variant. It seems that most battery drain issues are after the last update. T-Mobile is always behind and my battery is great. Maybe I don't need the updates.

    Not saying that this is the case or anything, but sometimes there are reasons why OEMS, or in this case the carrier, would decide do delay some update. Today there is a huge pressure by users for fast updates, as you can see in this forum, and it leads to the updates being released without the proper care.

    Thanks for this awesome post Gary, I am in love with Oneplus as a company because of exactly this sort of attention to the customers!

    Reading your post, it brought back the age old question to my mind - for which I still don't have a clear scientific answer. And that question is should we be charging our phones overnight and unplugging in the morning?

    I don't really care about the "battery health" perspective as I change phones every 6 months or less anyway, my main focus is battery life and maixmizing screen on time. In that sense, does charging overnight or charging before sleep and unplugging make any difference?

    Thanks for the amazing community!

    I charge every other evening and unplug before sleep. Battery life is awesome.

    I stopped the read after reading the third paragraph reason because beyond that it doesn't make sense. if the fine tune has already touched near to come with only 2 to 3 percent left for further tweak in future release. so given the fact we need to live with what we got than thinking it big steps.

    but the performance today is exception in this tweak. I think whoever that developer is.. definitely that person deserves a pat on his or her back. I owe you a coffee.. cheers..thanks!

    Nice read. OOS seems to indeed have better battery results compared to pure aosp roms.
    I've done measurements during night and my lowest battery consumption has been on OOS (O.37% loss per hour)

    j feel like the battery on my phone is not lasting as long as it should. I will do a test, so this is my starting point. I am just looking for some feedback
