    No, not everybody has it.
    I updated to 5.1.8 and had no battery drain issues. I was on 5.1.5 and 5.1.7 before, no battery issues whatsoever.

    If you search you can see that some people have it, or they think they have it, and others don't. It is what it is, but if OnePlus can test for it and discover the flaw in the fw, then i am sure they will work on it. If indeed there is an issue then they'll not sit around doing nothing, it's a fact, so you guys did your job, you gave your feedback on the matter, now please stop creating more and more interminable threads on 5.1.8 battery drain.

    I think battery is good yeah not that great but it's doing good I play pubg on my phone n still I get around 6 to 6hrs 30mins of SOT
    And something I am concerned about is the android system I don't know why it's taking that much of battery I have switched off all the background functions still it takes around 9% of my battery

    I was also facing issue like battery drain, sound bass not upto expectation, etc.

    I did a download of 5.1.8 from support ->> download section.

    saved it on root directory of storage ->> cleared cache from recovery >> installed 5.1.8 again with local upgrade (no factory reset done, no data loss) >> cleared cache again from recovery.

    happy to say battery is back to normal after a charge cycle, sound in earphones is perfect as it was on 5.1.8, face unlock is quick again,

    give it a try.

    Root directory has nothing to do with rooting except the name. It means the most basic folder in your android system, the folder that contains all other folders.

    The one that opens up directly after clicking on internal storage. And I was not trolling you. It does contain all the other folders.
