I cannot complain about battery life. At least one day with phone and internet plus YouTube is OK for me. Loading of the battery is as fast as for OnePlus 7 which I have had before (35W charger in around 1 hour). You have to be realistic, I am using it in automatic mode/refresh rate adapted. Nice form factor, it fits into every pocket and can be operated with one hand which you cannot with the standard 6.+ inch displays.The battery life seems really pitiful and with that 33w lackluster charging I do not feel it's that great a device these paid reviewers are making it to be. 5.5 hours SOT is not something to boast about.
It would've been perfect if ASUS would've chosen the Snapdragon 870, which makes sense considering the mediocre cameras that don't even need the DSP of the 888 and almost equal performance to it and much better throttling/thermals and battery efficiency.
