    After the update like everyone i am also facing those problems in my OP3t. Such as-

    1. Taking too long time to charge than before.
    2. Heating issue after using few minutes.
    3. Charger & phone getting hot while charging.
    4. Battery status not shown correctly in battery option.

    Most people suggest to keep less software installed & run. But there's no change by doing this.

    If we can't use lots of application in a smartphone with this price range, so for what uses this device?

    We thought that we can use OP3 & OP3t without any issue or any confusion. The OP company made OP3 & OP3t like a beast. So it is the hightime to ask some questions to the #OnePlus team members. How can you people do this to the OP users? Why u people couldn't give us a update without any issues? We had a lots of faith in your smartphone. But now you just ruined that. As my opinion the #ONEPLUS wants to be worst from best.

    I was very much a proud owner of op3 untill the last update. Have been facing problems like hell since the last update.
    1) Battery is draining like hell, have to keep charging it again and again. As if this was not enough, faced a strange problem a day ago. My battery was 92 charged in the morning when if left my house. I was travelling. When i took my phone out of my pocket an hour & half after the battery was 19% Mobile data, wifi, location all the features were turned off. Even brightness was minimum. Still wondering what led to such sudden drainage.

    2) Op3 is heating a lot. It starts heating up in my pocket & I literally have to take it out of my pocket & keep it aside for a bit. It doesn't just get warm, it gets hot!

    3) When I'm on my mobile data, all of a sudden mobile data is turned off & Wi-Fi is turned on. Then the wi-fi turns of & mobile data turns on again. This happens within a minute. It really irritates me when I'm playing some only game.

    Please get these issue fixed asap. Can't take it anymore. I literally have to use 2 devices because i can't trust op3 anymore. Don't really know when it will start acting up!

    Back up your data and then do a factory reset, this usually sorts most problems out. I have none of these issues on my 3T running 4.0.3

    Hi guys, I've found another issue in 4.0.3 version today. This is the newer one and I guess nobody noticed it so far. Follow the steps mentioned below:
    1. Play any audio on any music app in background while plugged in your earphones or headphones.
    2. Enable gestures settings for taking screenshots.
    3. Take a screenshot through the gestures of your three fingers after enabling gestures feature properly.
    4. Loudspeaker will automatically gets start and you can listen the music in both through your headphones/earphones and through loudspeakers

    Not only this just wait for few minutes and your battery automatically drain from 90% to 30-40% in few minutes itself.

    OnePlus Developers please address these issues. I hope this drastic battery drain issue will not be a problem in any of your next version. Hope for the Never Settle and best outcome always.

    Hi everyone
    I was really happy with my op3 since last update!
    Since it, every day, at some time (can't find why) my phone is getting very hot in my pocket and battery drain like hell. Even a reboot don't stop it. Sometimes it stop and work normally after.
    I can see that it is Android system that is leaking my battery
    I did a cache wipe but it didn't change nothing
    It's very unpleasant because now sometimes I have no more battery at lunch time! Incredible
    Please get a working ôta update to fix this!

    happens to me too. usually when the phone turns hot, I power it off and power back on. some apps cannot be killed by just swiping them off

    the update from 3.2.8 to 4.x requires a full wipe in recovery. be sure to back up your data first. this will fix your issues.

    I see a lot of people complaining about this. I am facing the same problem

    My phone is heating up whenever I put it in my pocket. I think the fingerprint scanner remains active as the phone keeps vibrating. Although I am not sure, but that may be the reason it heats up as well. My battery, charged at 80%, was showing a projected on time of 11 hours at 9:30 in the morning. After playing 15 mins of game (war robots) and little bit of Facebook, my phone at 2:40 has only 4% juice left.

    I will be glad if anyone can help me out.
