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 8 Pro before depleting the battery.

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

Light to medium usage. Mostly browsing on wifi. 120hz fhd, 1st full charge.

Can't upload the screenshot, but I got 3.5h SOT with 12h off charger and 53% left.

Very satisfied, coming from s10+ exynos, which would already be below 40% with this kind of usage.

Yep, updated in the meantime to 10.5.4 and it seems that battery lasts even longer. I thought it maybe the second full charge, but it might be effect of the update as well.

Right now at 72%, FHD 120Hz, with 2:35 screentime, 10h off charger. I would say 9h SOT should be attainable.

Hi, here are my stats. Keep in mind I'm always on QHD+ 120Hz with 50-80% brightness and Wi-Fi enabled.

1st charge (16/04): 5h40 (Heavy usage, even got overheating alert during transfer with OnePlus Switch)
2nd charge (17/04): 7h20 (on fw 10.5.4, which seems to improve the battery), with 5 hours of "Darkness Rises" and 2+ hours of YouTube
3rd charge (18/04): 7h10, 4+ hours of YouTube, ~2 hours of social apps.

Never got that much with my 7 Pro or my 6T.

Overall not too impressed. Seems a lot lower than many of you guys are getting. This is the second day of use. Day one was a similar story. Ended the day at 30% with less than 4 hours SOT. QHD+, 120hz, medium-high brightness, almost all on 5G, latest 10.5.4 update. My 6T with a custom kernel would get twice as much SOT and end the day at about 25-30%. I get I'm asking a lot more of the battery here, but it should be better no?

I'm also having 6T..
Don't expect this battery life .. you'll never get the battery from 6T..
Don't forget that 6T is 60hz, FHD, 4G,
OP8pro 120hz, QHD, 5G( 5g is Battery eater) ...
Have to admit that battery life is disappointing me..
