    My phone has been heavily draining battery over the last few weeks, and I'm not sure why. I don't remember if their was even an update.

    Is anyone else experiencing this? or can someone from the OnePlus team clarify if their is anything I can do about it. I know it's a slightly older device, but it has never caused me an issue. (screenshots below)

    Also, if someone could enlighten me on the battery percentage for usage. nothing adds up at all.

    For battery draining and heating issue try this.
    You can calibrate to enhance your battery life
    For battery draining you should follow this to calibrate..

    Goto settings >App and notifications>Click on three dot in right corner>Reset app preference.

    To Optimize the phone, clear your recent apps, also set 3rd party apps to Optimize in Settings Battery, only leave the ones you need run in the background or to notify you such as messages, email, Google Services, oneplus etc on Intelligent control.

    Android may take a few days to optimize those apps after setting them to Optimize depending on your usage of those apps. A10 has its own learning curve.

    Go through 2 to 3 charge cycles, leave on charge beyond full capacity for a couple of hours. Preferably overnight.

    After a few days, Check App battery stats at about 50% and see if there are particular apps using more resources than necessary.

    A definitive guide to everything that affects smartphone battery life

    Thanks to @Caomhin 😇...

    Hi there, it is not possible to check what is the issue with your device online.
    If you think it's a software issue, you should provide feedback using the feedback section of the community app.
    If you think it's hardware issue, you should reach out to nearest service centre.

    I rarely do that, sometimes I do chat or video call... for last 2 years I never seen phone heating up too much, generally the backcover used to absorb and doesn't generate much, but the level heat it is producing it actually heats up my backcover too, as if I'm holding bare phone

    You mention it's only happening recently, sounds like an app or game update may be using more resources and is generating that heat.

    See if any recent app updates or app installs occurred around the time the heat started.

    thanks for response.

    I don't use game apps, but only general apps .

    I need to see if I can generate heat again, as suggested I have raised a feedback in OnePlus, have log kit enabled once heat is produced il send them logs.

    will see what is the issue

    This is a fact that after charging to its full (100 percent) the battery drains too quick and after reaching to 75 percent it becomes stable then again drains too fast why the same performance is not being maintain by the battery .
    I find one plus must work with duracel for creating a best battery , life for its future devices .
