It's amazing how much we actually use our phones in a given day, especially when we watch "videos"! Rate this thread to express how many hours of screen-on time you can get on the OnePlus 7T before depleting the battery.

Then, drop a comment if you have anything to add!

OnePlus 7T, unlike the predecessor OnePlus 7, is
confirmed to have 90Hz refresh rate.
Hence, whoever is going to post SOT, do not forget to mention refresh rate used (90/60 Hz), screen resolution, "tweaks" and "measures" taken in settings etc. Also show full screenshots. Thanks.

GSMArena has given an endurance rating of only 84 hrs (90hz) & 89 hrs (60hz) which are not that great considering OP7 which had 102 hrs. I cant understand even at 60hz why so much difference compared to its predecessor?

So is there way to underclock to 855 rates and get about 100+ hour battery endurance ? It's big hearthbreak for me these battery stats, still better than my HTC U11, I get around 3.5-4 hours screen on time. Device 2 years old.

Not sure it'll compare to my OnePlus 5 record

Of 14 hours 40 something minutes in one charge

But I think 10 hours should be possible.

Here's my old thread, I always requested proof, app list, battery stats and installed ROM.

brightness?
Since this screen is a 1000 nit, could it be the auto brightness settings are up way to high, and thus much higher battery use. As far as i know, the clocks on the 855+ are a result of binning, so same voltage with those clocks, unless that is inaccurate?
watching this vid, with what he says is equalized brightness he manages to get 3+ hours of pubg, along with youtube etc, for 8:46 of SOT. Now as i have a 6T this is pretty appealing, but reading a lot of reviews, it seems 5.5 to 6 hours is the average and i wonder is that because of having brightness wayyy up, if the slider isnt balanced, or rather linear. 50% could be 500nit, which is max brightness on a lot of other screens. Thats 45nits brighter than max on a 6T for example. Just trying to sort out the discrepancy, between this gaming test, and what reviewers are getting. I cant imaging 4g modem is that big of a difference.

In terms of battery life, the 7T put in 8 hours and 47 minutes of work in Tom's Guide's custom battery test, where phones endlessly cycle through websites at 150 nits of screen brightness until they run out of juice. Decent though that is, that's not only worse than the OnePlus 7 Pro (9:31); it pales significantly when compared to the iPhone 11 (11:20) and Samsung's Galaxy S10 Plus (12:35).

this from Tom's hardware seems to rule out over bright theory as they control nits to 150, but that seems crazy compared to the gaming vid we see above that shows a mere 45 mins less while streaming video and 3+ hours of pubg. It can't possibly be as demanding to refresh a web page at 150 nits. Judging by the video as well brightness looked easily over that level. So guess we'll have to wait for the IRL user reports
