    Hey :)
    Is anyone else using a Mi Band 2 together with a 3T? I am on the latest Open Beta 11, and my band lasts only for 3 days (opposed to over 20 by default).
    I already tried a different Mi Band, as well as mine with a Honor 5X. "My" band works fine with the 5X, and the other band drains battery as soon as it is connected to my phone.
    Both phones are permanently connected to the respective band for receiving notifications.
    Anyone with the same problem?
    regards :)

    No issues here with OnePlus 3T OB11, Mi Band 2 around 15 to 25 days of battery , but for the record, my wife usses the Mi Band 2 on his iPhone and get about 8 to 12 days of use.

    So yeah maybe the app it's messed up, uninstall, wipe cache and try again, that's maybe work

    I just bought mi band 2 from 2 days ago
    I have same problem with my oneplus 3
    The battery goes from 100% to 40% in 1 days
    I turned on phone alerts , lift wrist, some app notification like Facebook & whatsApp
    I tried to remove heart rate from menu then I noticed some enhance in battery life
    I am going to test it in next days also with some turn on /off some features to figure out the problem.
    In the other side I read same problem with person using Nexus 5 then when he switched the phone with Nexus 5x he got good battery life around ~13 days

    I am glad I'm not the only one with the problem... The band is quite new, so not sure if that's something new to latest beta builds... As I said, the same band works perfectly fine with an Honour 5X, so the problem is the OnePlus...
    Are you guys using the Mi Fit app or 3rd party solutions? (Mi Band Tools, Notify and Fitness..)

    really? the only you can say about a experience comment about a issue is pointing a gramatic error in a adgetive?

    you are a poor stupid man... sad.

    Having the same battery drain issue, with same circumstances. Started on ob 19 and 20. Firstly I though it is my bracelet which went wrong, but having the bt switched off solved the drain issue. But well, it is not a solution to turn off the Bluetooth... It used to work for 20-25 days without the need of charge.
    Already tried re-installing and wiping cache, I even wiped the whole storage in addition.
    As a side note my gf has a Huawei p8 lite, her mother a p9 lite, my mother a xiaomi redmi 1s, all of them having Bluetooth always on, and no such battery drain, so as someone already pointed out, the problem is in op3('t). I personally have the op3.
    Anyone has any idea if there is anything we can do to get back our normal battery life?

    OK I sort of fixed mine. I installed Tasker and turn Bluetooth off when at home or at work. SO it's only on when in my car. Now back to 2-3 weeks of battery life.

    According to the changelog of the latest HydrogenOS beta this should be fixed in OB21 which is due in the next few days.
