    Please use this thread for any questions, tips, issues and all things related to battery and heating of the OnePlus 7 Pro.

    Please note that the way you use the phone (daily usage scenarios and habits) will make a huge difference to the battery/heating performance. In a scenario where there is a heavy performance workload, such as photo shooting/video shooting/mobile gaming/video consumption, the power consumption and heating of the phone will increase accordingly, which is a normal phenomenon.

    You are more than welcome to share any battery tips and tricks in the comment section and ask a forum moderator to pin your post on the first page of this thread.

    Battery optimization never ends. To help OnePlus better resolve battery/heating-related issues, please submit a bug report via the Feedback Tool in the Community app. Thank you in advance.

    ---------- Original thread ----------

    I have used my OP7 for 3 days now. upgraded from a OP5. Disapointed about about the batterylife. Same amount of apps - same dayli use as in my OP5, but not even near the batterylife of my old OP5.
    One hour om the internet reading news in my OP7 drains the battery for 23% ! Have to charge the phone 2 times a day now !!!!!

    any suggestions ?

    A new phone needs to rebuild cache for system and all apps. This is taking time and power.
    A new battery will need 3-4 full charge/discharge circles to get its full capacity.

    Charge it as needed.

    Also, it would help if he leaves the phone on charge overnight. That will help the cache to build up without interruptions.

    Charge the phone overnight for a few days. That will solve the problem.

    What about old phones? Such problems are reported everywhere by all types of users. People should just stop worrying about it and charge as necessary.

    The battery performance will vary on any phone. I personally find the best way for me to test is to play some of the more demanding games. That really pushes the processor, display and radios all at the same time.

    Won't it affect the battery life if chargeed fully for few cycles at starting itself ??

    Nope. These latest SOC s are very good at all this.

    Yeap. I charge it when im required.. 15% to 95 or 90% n sometimes max it out by leaving it on charge for a bit longer.

    But no stress. Just throw things at your phone that uses battery alot.. Play loud music... Use tye whole screem experience. N let the device Run its course.

    Your battery will improve its capability.

    i noticed that the device has huge battery drain overnight.
    This night it drained about 7% in 6 hours and if i go in "battery" there is not any app in the list.
    Does this happen to someone else?

    Go to settings - battery - click on usage totals - then 3 dot menu on top right corner - show full device usage.

    Post a screenshot.
