    Hey community,
    I would like to ask those who have the new OP6T how much does the battery lasts when working hard or medium on phone. You can upload a screenshot of the analytics on the end of your day

    There are a lot of people complaining about battery life. While many folks most likely know this already as its pretty common knowledge it should still be reiterated for folks who aren't aware.

    While this isn't a silver bullet solution, enabling the dark theme and enabling it for any apps that support such as YouTube, Messages, Google News, and Phone can help.

    Google did some tests. The results pretty much back up what we already know with real numbers


    Note that this is with max brightness. Drop that to 50% and...well do the math.

    Google details just how good dark mode is for your battery

    Standard behavior of an OLED is that blacks onscreen are locations where the pixel is off. The more off pixels.....obviously.... the less power being drawn from the screen.

    The setting is easy to find under SETTINGS > DISPLAY >Customization > Theme


    Ultimately there will not be a single solution for battery life. But this can be one part of the overall puzzle.

    You should wait for few days and then see how your battery performance is, don't expect great results in just couple days

    6 and have hours with 29% remaining [e]1f60a[/e]. I am sure it will last me a day and also with dash charging it takes little more than an hour to fully charge the device so this is fine for me [e]1f60a[/e]

    I have One plus 6 and OnePlus 6t also but I see that One plus 6T has a heating issues. Normal videos and game heats the 6T a lot when compared to One plus 6.

    does any one feel that their one plus 6t's battery is draining? I feel that battery is draining even if the phone is idle. any optimization tips would also be helpful.

    Even I feel that. I think it's because of amoled display as it keeps on showing with a minimal shake on the phone.

    A number of videos on Youtube show this not to be the case. In nearly every instance, the OPO 6T seems to be relatively stable from a temperature perspective only increasing 2-3 degrees in most use cases.

    If your phone is getting hot you may have other apps/services running in the background attributing to the heat. The more CPU intensive a task, the more heat that gets generated.
