    I did also had the same problem for 3 days, but now it works fine. I did heard that new phone need some cache buildup time and that uses much battery in that period. And also it also happens when you charge your phone too frequently, let the battery drain to less than 20 percent and then charge it. Always charge it to 100 percent in one go. We should do this in every new electronic gadgets.

    sorry, but I can't agree with you. I'm using op7 and charge between 1% and 10% and still great battery life. also, I always do a full charge.
    for information, my gf has the 5t, and doing the same method after an year and half she still has 8 hours of sot, which is awesome.

    the lithium battery depends on how you treat it. if you charge with always the same method and do everything on the background to save the battery, the battery will stay at a good level the longest as possible

    I have poor battery life in my OnePlus 7, it drains very fast.

    I am not a heavy user: no games, no Facebook app(which drains a lot), no Instagram, only browsing, bank apps, whatsapp/telegram, a bit of Youtube, and very rarely Google Maps/Waze or spotify/podcasts.

    I am getting only about 4 hours of SoT!

    I used Oneplus 2 for almost 3.5 years. After that battery life of 7 is a beast. Had to charge Oneplus 2, atleast 3 times a day with basic usage and all on Wi-Fi. For 7, its once a day with 6 hours of screen time that too on 4G...amazing

    the first weeks I had around 5h30 of SoT, now it's only 3h. The issue seems to come from "google play service" (15-16% of battery usage instead of 3-4 in the beginning).
    I tried to deactivate some synchro features yesterday, hope it will help (for today GPS are only 1%, just deactivated the play store auto update)
    Heating not an issue. On Holyday it was hot (flash deactivated) but it was 50 celcius outside, seems normal.

    Compare to my old iPhone XS it seems that battery drain during the night is important (lost 7-8% during a 7h night), on iOS it was max 1%. Something to do for that?

    sorry to put my question here but it wont let me create a new thread :(

    my one plus 7 came with 0% battery out of box , and when i turned it on it showed a warning saying "battery very low, charge phone before power on"... is this normal ? or is there something wrong with the battery ?

    usually phones come with at least 20% battery , so i got worried that mine was at 0%

    Getting very bad SOT right now. Cleared the Google Play services cache as it was eating all my battery. Hopefully now I will get better battery backup.

    I have installed BetterBatteryStats but I don't know how to "read" the stats it gives me. What paremeters should I watch?

    Hello, after 3 weeks of using my one plus 7 I feel a great decrease in autonomy on daily tasks, this has manifested itself after an intensive use that I have had in recent days.
    I wanted to know if there were any solutions (I have already seen the basic tips that are to remove Bluetooth, localization, etc...)
    If the battery has a defect, how do I proceed to have another one plus 7 because it seems much less durable than at the beginning.

    Thank you in advance for your answer.

    My SoT increased from 5hr 30mins to 6hr 15mins, by switching the DC Dimming on.
