    So if I let my phone ( with sharing mobile data)on the oneplus warp charge, the phone will use the power from the support and not from the battery? So it doesn't impact battery's life right?

    When reaching 100% it does not continue and overcharge. There is no real differance between wireless or cable. On the wireless you can use bedtime mode and charge slower.
    The optimized charging feature will halt the charge at 80% if the phone believes you are sleeping. This is to avoid 100% at longer times than really necessary. 100% over very long times wear more than 50% (the recommended long term storage level). But you can't keep a phone at 50% nor maintain optimal temperature at all times.
    No matter what a battery slowly decrease it's life time even if just leaving the factory and being stored on a shelf.

    Personally I just enjoy the phone and don't worry. What is the price tag on just enjoying the phone anyways? 😉
    If a phone would need a new battery before upgrading to next phone I don't see the cost as that high.

    any idea what "Oneplus System" is in GSAM?
    and why the consumption is so high?

    i just only installed GSAM so its only like 1h of usage however i saw it in my old GSAM installation too
    if i take a look at other people GSAM screenshots i never see Oneplus System?

    Maybe thats the reason for my "not so great" battery?

    Charging my new OnePlus 8 Pro

    Hi folks

    I'm getting my recently bought OnePlus 8 Pro replaced as it had battery issues. I was hardly getting a 4 hour of screen on time with regular usage.

    Just wanted your 2 cents on how should the new device be charged for the first few times? Do I need to charge it overnight for apps to get optimized or a generally recommended 20-80% charge cycle should work fine? I don't want another device with battery issues, thus the caution 😅

    Appreciate the help, guys

    Nightly charges can actually be good regarding optimizing.
    You can however manually force it via a command in adb shell.

    cmd package bg-dexopt-job

    But there is also the possibility of some issues and unnecessary drain.
    This is the info I often post regarding this.


    You can force manual background optimizing and view the actual CPU usage via ADB.
    Background optimizing (adb shell) : cmd package bg-dexopt-job
    CPU usage (adb shell) : top -m 10 (or a other number of your choosing).


    Alternate battery stats app.

    I got a one plus 8 pro and I've been using it for the past one month.

    I've been a OnePlus user since the OnePlus one and I'm really disappointed with the battery life of this device. It barely lasts 12 hours without an extensive use. It also gets quite hot some times.

    Are you experiencing the same kind of issues?, could be that my device is defective?

    Something runs havoc on you device. Looks like some type of system component acts crazy. If we know what we might know what to do.
    You should see more details with the help of this command via adb shell.

    CPU usage (adb shell) : top -m 10 (or a other number of your choosing).

    Adb installation.

    Latest os11 update makes overheating issue worse. Besides waiting for the coming official update to fix it, there is nothing we can do

    I always try to keep my phone cool, because overheating allegedly has a negative effect on the battery :(

    I have been using the OnePlus 8 Pro as well for a month or a little more. The SOT has been 4-5 hours at best with QHD+ and 120 hz. I haven't upgraded yet to OS11 after reading negative comments and feedback about battery draining and overheating issues. Kindly suggest when we can expect the final updates to OS11 without compromising the performance. Thanks.

    Can't compare an affordable phone with a low end processor with a flagship phone with SD865.

    It's the same on a11, with 20-30% remaining
