Terrible battery life

Does anybody have terrible battery life?
My phone lately cannot survive even 20 minutes without charger. I think that problem is not in old battery (phone is 11 months old), but (probably) software.
Today it was turned off, on charger probably for 2-3 hour and battery was slowly charged to about 95%. After disconnecting charger and using phone for about 10 minutes battery was still at 91%, but phone just turned off.

I can turn it on, battery will show about 85+%, but it will shut off almost immediately. Similar behavior was observed for the past 3-4 weeks (but with other battery percent, but all were over 50%).
I did not try stock ROM in the past 6 or so months, but I remember that I was able to have normal (well, more than 1-2 hour) battery life on alternate ROMs.

There was battery patch on page 4 but it's deleted. Is there something similar what I can try to give my phone more than 10 minutes of life without charger?
Thanks

I think you reflash emui because in lineage battery drain is very fast and all day phone plugged in charger is not right for our mobile, you're damaging your phone.

Dual Sim switch LTE sim :
=> Lineage switch data will work Only for 3G/2G if set at sim2 (only sim1 can get LTE/4G)
=> You can reverse sim slot number with script include in rom
=> Goto /system/SwitchLTEsim/ (using root browser)
=> Reverse : tap/execute/SwitchLTEsim2 and reboot
sim1 slot will appear at sim2 and sim2 slot at sim1
=> Normal : tap/execute/SwitchLTEsim1 and reboot
sim1 slot will appear at sim1 and sim2 slot at sim2

HOW to use SDcard support for user apps :
*first : i do like that coz i dont like "adoptable storage" too much
1 : Backup your SDcard files on computer
2 : Use TWRP 3.0 and goto :
Advanced/PartitionSD card (choice Micro SDCard) press OK
3 : EXT Size ( choice how many Mo you want to convert to Link apps ) and choose EXT4 file system
4 : Swype to partition will FORMAT your SD to Fat32 + xx Mo to EXT4.
5 : Reboot and open link2SD , allow root access
6 : Do create scripts , choice EXT4 , you will have a error , ignore it !!
7 : Reboot , and now you can use Link2SD to Link apps you want on EXT4.
DO NOT USE iSU to hide root : it will break linked apps

HOW to hide root if needed :
- full version is also a TOOL to change beetwen Xposed and UnXposed:
Exemple : you installed with Xposed but now you need to Snapchat
=>In Aroma disable "Flash rom vX.X and Boot" = system will not be formated
=>In Aroma disable any other option will do nothings .. (you don't need to install Xtra Apps again)
=>In Aroma disable "Xposed Installer and Framework" = Xposed removed, iSU installed
=> Reboot your device ...
=> Run iSU and give authorisations ..
=> In control : Deactive SU , Set SELinux to Enforcing (check Enforcing is realy wrote)
DO NOT USE WITH LINK2SD linked apps : it will break links
=> In CHECKS : use Safety Net test , it will pass ...
=> Now install Snapchat and log-in ..
You can reverse to Xposed version with Aroma ....
Original iSU thread :
https://forum.xda-developers.com/android/apps-games/isu-simple-app-to-deactivate-activate-t3478348

Change Screen size and DPI :
- Can be usefull to see some apps in Playstore (exemple : amazon is availlable for xhdpi but not for xxhdpi)
- Can be usefull to keep more battery when screen is on

- Use Root browser, go to system/SetScreenSize/
- Tape the Screen you want to use and Execute it
- Device will do a fast reboot to change "res/values" for apps
- The change is done on "data" not on "system"
Hi

I don't use cast, so can't help i There.. but in Xposed addition app u enable miscellaneous and then it will recognize smart key

Buttons - external devices - miscellaneous.
Add button - click smart key 1 time and close the little window.
Create conditions and what it should do

Hi, i'm trying to use the smart key but it doesn't get recognized, i installed xposed framework, xbridge and xposed additions, when i try to add a new key it recognizes all other keys (in the little window it says what i pressed) but not the smart key. Should i install/configure something else?
Thanks.

Do like told earlier, but this time you press the button and go back, then there should be a red cross, if you press next to the red cross you should get the configure button pop up?

Not working anymore for me

Hey there.
I used this ROM on 1.0 version, even with fast battery drain it was working well.
Then I updated to the 2.0 via OTA updater and now my sim isn't working on it (asks for a sim network perso code), i reinstalled it and it still wouldn't work. Rest seemed fine.

+1.
Seems that Lineage roms for this phone are popular for battery draining problems.

TWRP problem

@Speedo.thc I am trying to install this rom, but an issue immediately turned up. My Honor 7 (Plk-L01, B390) doesn't accept the TWRP version you linked in the thread . It simply boots into stock recovery. Instead, I tried to use TWRP 311 and it correctly works. Can I install this ROM with my version of TWRP or I will break something?
Thanks in advance

Hi, I think it's because you're on stock b390, if twrp311 works fine, it will flash the ROM without problems, I recommended the other one coz it's better to clean dalvik and cache.

Use my Lineage OS 13 from sources or Lineage OS 13 reloaded by Speedo, it should work there.

Hi @Speedo.thc ,
I have a strange bug. At the beginning photos and videos worked properly. Now, after a week and a half, if I try to take photos camera freezes. I tried it with footej camera, Google camera, open camera and WhatsApp, so I think it will be the same with every app. How can I do? I wouldn't care if I couldn't take videos, but I need a lot photos... Thanks in advance!

    Are you working on something now ?
    Yesss , and alway to see a better battery life.
    - Adopt HwHisiRIL , ( for now it make bug the network switch LTE/3G/2G and Status) but some peoples got better network and maybe less battery drain, with this enable : signal is green on battery stats.
    - Test governor Ondemand for BIG core.
    - Test Screen Size to xhdpi , (320 dpi and resized screen to 820x1458) ,it look to drain very less battery when on screen, and for me it's still very nice , i don't see the difference witht 1080x1920. ( same idea than Nexus users do to get xxhdpi)
    - here you can see how many less GPU got to work :
    Diff_sizes2_zpsxo8gwwzj.jpg

    With all theses changes i now got :
    6h35 "on screen"
    33h45 "screen off"

    - switch 4G/3G/2G when using HwHisiRil. (work if HwHisiRil is de-activated)
    - signal if removed HwHisiRil (work if HwHisiRil is activated)
    - FM radio
