Hello,

Today when I arrived at work at 9 AM, I had ~ 85% battery, after listening to music on Soundcloud for about 30 minutes on my way to work. At ~ 10 or 10:30 , i`ve noticed that while my phone was sitting on the desk without using it, several battery draining, from 85 to 65% since I got in the office. It looked weird to me, but I didnt pay attention to it.Also, I`ve noticed that the phone was heating more and more, and this heat was noticeable, even tho I`m using a hard back case on my phone. 2 hours later, it was at 30% and I was terrified. I`ve checked the Battery option in settings, and the only consumer displayed there was Android System, which drained ~12% from the battery, and some apps that were having an average of 3-4%.

After 2-3 reboots, the problem still persisted and then, after checking the battery again, guess what : facebook and facebook messenger show up with 20% and 14% battery consumed during these 5 hours, even if I didnt used the phone at all. This started all of a sudden and I dont know why. I`m running nougat oos4.0, from 31st december and this is the 1st time I`m seeing this issue. I`ve uninstalled both apps, and the problem is gone. Also, last saturday I wiped my phone because it was a bit laggy after the nougat update, so there shouldnt be any problems. Anyone encountered this issue with both apps ?

Cheers

Uninstall Facebook. It's a know battery draining app and always has been. Use other apps that access Facebook like Metal. Works well without the heavy battery drain that happens with the Facebook app.

It's too early to make final assumptions, but it seems that the battery draining has stopped, or at least it's not draining as fast as it had been... (I have lost just 2% within an hour, where I had lost around 15% during the previous one) ...

I haven't experienced any battery draining problem until today...
Also I saw a lot of people complaining about the same Facebook & messenger issue today on Oneplus's Facebook post...
So maybe it's being caused by an update of those apps...

This sudden battery drain is horrible. 100 to 0 in 12 hours. Well I don't have any of those apps (Fb, messenger, twitter etc) and still am experiencing heavy battery drain. Some users over at Reddit have claimed it to be due to the Google Calendar updates. Lets see if this subsides over the next few days.

Not sure if this is coincidence or not but, I flashed a custom Lineage rom last night and the CPU usage at idle was through the roof, the phone was draining like mad and heating up. I don't have the FB app installed. I then flashed another ROM and it went away. Is there something in certain Roms causing this? Again, I don't have the FB app installed, but I'm fine now on a custom Rom.

Dont think its related to google, more like facebook, since both fb and messenger were showing in battery consumption as main drain apps.
This is the first time when my op3t heats and also drains that fast. I usually get 1,5 days ( only browsing,texting, and social apps, no games). The problem solved after i uninstalled those apps

Yes FB and Messenger overheated and drained my phone today. Not impressed.

Seems to be behaving this evening however.

I think it was some sort of a server-side glitch as I found a mention on Reddit of a similar thing happening a year ago.

    This is my thinking too ... but there has been no update
    Its a server update,not in the app
