    Turn off ambient display and also turn off backup from settings and auto sync it will help to retain battery life but still it may drain more than actual limit OnePlus needs to push an update ASAP to fix this issue

    Please try doing this few steps. Definitely going to solve your Phone heating issue.

    1. Please turn Off Auto Brightness for screen.
    2. Keep you screen on timer to the minimum as possible.
    3. Keep the In Pocket mode On.
    4. Uninstall unwanted 3rd party apps, as it kills your battery life too...

    5. Check your location settings and background apps
    Always turnoff

    6. Please avoid playing continuously high End Graphic Games, As your phone is not a gaming phone it's a best features full day-to-day life useful device. With good specifications. But Still NOT A 24x7 GAMING Device.

    Hope my suggestion help .

    Warms Regards,
    Dr. Sam

    For the excessive battery drain, I've found that downloading Malwarebytes to disable system contacts, phone, and messages stops it (kinda), using Google's instead. (Sorry OnePlus) If you are privacy orientated, Mozilla had some alternative messaging apps listed in their various blogs, all are free or relatively cheap.
    Malwarebytes is also able to disable or delete apps or plug-ins that aren't needed for functionality, but ensure you know what you are deleting. Malwarebytes can easily brick your phone with a wrong button.
    You can also switch to optimized battery with Google Play Services, but Play Store updates will be delayed. (Google Play Protect will also no longer be "live," hence Malwarebytes)
    I haven't seen any difference in using 90hz vs 60hz in terms of battery (noice), but adding battery saver to DC Dimming in the labs settings allows you to go a few hours at 90hz with only 10% battery use with the solutions I've messed with.
    With all this stuff I've done to this poor phone to force it to live, I'm able to get it to survive with 45% battery at 90hz at the end of a 12+ hr work shift, no charging breaks.
    Keep in mind that I'm using the unlocked version of the OnePlus 8 with latest version of OxygenOS, the default launcher, no social media, and not charging overnight or leaving it plugged in at 💯%.
    Also, using a standard brick charger (or previous generation Dash charger) for long charge sessions, where you are busy, while using the Warp charger for emergencies seems to be better as time goes on, that also solves the heating issues.
    The heating issues during games can, depending on the game, be solved by enabling Pro Mode/Fanatic Mode (will increase battery usage). I tested this with Risk, World of Warships, and Doom Eternal streaming through the XBOX app. I also tested with local games like PUBG and The Elder Scrolls: Blades.
    The last thing I need to do to improve battery and performance is break into ROG and steal some RGB lighting, gonna make the OnePlus logo glow.
