    Can you completely wipe the OP Launcher from your device?The reason - a massive battery drain caused by it

    Before my last charge, the launcher had consumed 27% of the battery. Usually it's around 10-15%
    No widgets on the home screen, the only gesture that I'm
    using is double tap to wake/lock.

    A few days ago I contacted the OP support. The guy there
    told me to delete the launcher and that the phone cah work
    as good as ever even without it
    I asked if the launcher would be completely wiped or just replaced with an old version and he assured me that it'll be
    gone for good.

    Can anyone give an advise on what may cause the launcher to eat the battery like this, and if it's possible for the phone to work without the launcher?

    Install a third-party launcher and change that to default launcher.

    Thanks, but I'm trying to get an answer to the question asked.
    Is it possible to completely get rid of the OP launcher and also, why the heavy drain at all (phone being used for voice calls only recently)

    You can disable it but not completely remove it without root. To answer your question about not using a launcher at all, no. A launcher is required.

    Thank you! Kinda makes you wonder how helpful the OP support really is since according to them, the launcher can be completely wiped, with your phone "working as good as ever" ..

    If there is a difference, it is not much. I'm still getting 7+ hours sot and 2+ days between charges.
    Battery duration is about your apps and how you use them.
    An update cant change that (other than delaying notifications).

    Generally;
    social media apps sync often, try to reduce that.
    games with intensive graphics, reduce graphic settings.
    2 sims use more power.
    weak cell service uses more power.

    Hi buddy..
    even i am facing a similar issue. i bought my one plus 6t on 24 dec 18 and i am having similar rate of drainage... which is 1 percent in 5 minutes.

    without using any video calling or you tube...
    its eating up the battery.
    i have restricted the background data of almost all apps.
    have hardly any app installed... but this is not what i bought my op6t for.

    Please help and guide.
    Also clarify does one plus replace the battery as the performance is not as desired as compared to other op6t devices.

    Thanking you in anticipation.
    Regards.

    Really worried.

    Can someone tell me the SOT I should expect? Because I was told that Fortnite is a huge reason my phone just drained in 3.5 hrs even though it was just 1 hour of fortnite.

    Anyway I spent an entiee day without fortnite using apps that only a casual consumer would use : Very little time on Netflix, Facebook, Chrome. The performance is still bullshit. 3 hrs and 45 mins and the phone already lost 70% of the battery. I used to get an SOT of more than 6 hrs easy even when I played Fortnite before this update.

    buddy thats the problem...
    just 8 hours.... shouldn't this device give you a min of 36... when no heavy apps are being run. alll background restrictions are on and synching is also switched off.

    Exactly. Even without the heavy apps, its capping at 5 hrs maximum. That's when I didnt use ANY battery extensive app just to check if Fortnite is to be blamed for my observations.

    Netflix and Facebook could drain it too. Games just do it faster. ;)

    Are we supposed to keep the phone in the pockets to reach that SOT then mate? These are day to day used apps that weren't an issue earlier. It's like a standard "That's what's doing it excuse" I find after this update. The same apps easily gave screen usage upto 6-7 hrs easy earlier.
