Default FInd 7a - battery drain and solution thread

Hi

I have received the Find 7a . Tho only issue I have with that is the huge battery drain when off ( even with data and wifi off )

Therefore I want to create a thread where we can share the solutions for this battery drain issue.

PS: I am running ColorOS 2.0 beta

cheers

I dont understand why people keep complaining about the battery. I use my 7a a lot and the battery lasts me just fine and I have Wi-Fi and GPS always on.

It's a known issue, I'm actually in a pilot group with a product manager and developer using a new firmware based on 1.2 that seems to help.
In the meantime, change the lockscreen from Colorlock as that has been known to hold a wakelock and disable Google's location services.

After I did that on 1.2 or 2.0 beta my drain shot down to .5%/hr.

I too am part of said pilot group that Sean mentioned and can confirm that a more battery saving firmware is in the works.

Give oppo some time to work the issue out, it's starting to look better.

Head over to oppoforums.com and message Addel or Zeus and they will add you to the conversation.

Did you froze those apps using Titanium Backup? Or how did you do it?

Thanks!

Freezing applications/disabling them is basically the same as removing them, except that they still take up space on the system. You can freeze applications using Titanium Backup as you said and if you have root of course. If you want to completely remove the applications you should get a file explorer that can request root permissions, then look for the applications you want to remove, these can usually be found in "/system/app/" or "/system/priv-app/". You can also remove them using adb, this is a little more complicated though, if you want to do it this way I'd recommend you to Google it. Be careful when removing files from the system though, as you may run into some weird situations, you can always make a backup of course. (when restoring back-upped files, remember to set the correct permissions)

enabling google location services do not have impact on standby battery drain, seems changing the lock screen and freezing default launcher (I use Nova) helped

cheers
