    Caps lock is Shouting, no need for Shouting.

    Have you checked to see what is actually draining the battery in your Battery stats. Have you optimized any apps that may cause battery drain.

    What steps gave you taken to see what's causing the issue.

    Recharged my mobile twice still my battery draining fast. I am fed up with all the updates and rom settings still no issue resolved. Could anyone tell me stable version should I have to revert back to older rom or is this issue remains the same with all OP 6t devices?

    So you showed the system apps which look normal. Which 3rd party apps are using Battery.

    This is with less than 20% usage. But I don't do gaming on my 6T just for clarity

    Caomhin I still didn't get to know its just normal usage still battery is consuming fast. I have used Samsung cell phones but there is no issue in those phones. Even Iphone mobile batteries are better than this crappy OP 6t. Its a great cell phone except the battery issue. [e]1f625[/e]

    This is what I do to get great battery life. Its worth a look,and see if it will improve yours.

    Try 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


    If it doesn't improve after about a week on the settings above, then backup the phone, do a full Erase All Data factory reset. And repeat the steps above.

    This will restore you to a fresh installation of Android. So you will need to backup your phone.

    After Backing up the phone.

    Go to Settings,
    Reset Options,
    Enable Erase Internal Storage.

    Then click on the Delete All Data button.

    Once done, use the phone for a couple of days without adding apps to check for issues with just the raw fresh OOS only.

    Only introduce previous 3rd party apps gradually over 2 weeks to see if any particular app or apps drain the battery

    Clean the ports on the phone, charger and both ends of the USB cable with a fine dry toothbrush or non conductive wooden or plastic toothpick carefully.

    See if that helps

    A 3 year old iphone with 600+ charge cycles has battery health of 91 percent.
    But a year old oneplus/android has an health of 82.

    iOS and Android are 2 completely different ecosystems. If android was as tightly controlled and locked down by Google as iOS is by Apple, thing's might well be very different.

    There is always going to be less strain placed on the battery of an iPhone, because the ability for the user to change things on the device that can affect the way it's optimised, just simply isn't there to the same extent as android.

    Try this
    Go to Settings > System > Reset Options > Reset Wifi, mobile, Bluetooth
    And restart your device... It won't erase any data, it will just reset network settings, nd you'll need to enter password for wifi connection

    Wipe cache by booting the phone with power and volume down.

    Hope this helps
