This is just a thread to guide how I have improved battery life, since the current software still lacks many battery related optimisations:

Step 1: IMPORTANT
Install Greenify (donate if possible, you can really avoid play services battery drain with that, just 1$ :P )
Turn on smart hibernation, it will have aggressive doze can really improve standby life
Follow the prompted steps of adb shell to enable it and turn off instant lock (have a 5 sec wait period) for effective hibernation
Step 2: IMPORTANT
Check if you have share usage statistics enabled anywhere in the following apps:
- Oneplus Experience
- Gboard (Uploads a lotttt of data)
- Improve user experience of any sort
Step 3: IMPORTANT
Set location of all apps to only while using
Step 4: IMPORTANT
Intelligent control doesnt seem to be perfect yet
Put all apps to optimise from intelligent control that you suspect to run in background
Except apps you cant afford to be hibernated
Like whatsapp
Only keep apps you cant even afford to be killed at any costs in Dont optimise
Step 5: IMPORTANT
If you tend to unlock your phone a lot and especially if you have 90hz on, consider removing the live wallpaper and replace it with the static verison
Step 6:
Turn off backgrlound data for apps which have literally no use in backround
Step 7:
Radio doesnt seem to be optimised yet, try to limit all of your bluetooth and data related apps, especially while travelling and low coverage areas, turn off bluetooth scanning in location
Step 8:
Consider using dark mode, use amoled to full potential
Step 9:
Try checking for unecessary apps which you have kept installed for :maybe if i need in future, and keep giving you notifications or run in background, try keeping an apk or greenify it.
STEP 10:
If you are using play music etc for local songs, consider running in offline mode, or if you stream in low coverage, consider saving songs offline
