OnePlus 5 Battery Life Thread

Hi all,

I figure it would be useful to get a battery life thread going so we can see what type of performance we can get and also understand how people might be improving their battery performance.

I haven't done one full battery drain yet as I only got the phone yesterday. I will be doing that on this cycle to see how it performs. For reference I am at 90% after about 7 ½ hours having put down at 100% and not on the charger when I slept. I had 2% battery drain over night (slept maybe 6 ½ hours) and have 54 minutes SOT (light usage, just messaging, Twitter, slack, chrome etc) with the remaining 8%. I'm not sure how OP phones battery life reduce, I know LG always has a strong first 10% and then rapidly drops off for example.

In terms of setup, I am rooted and using Doze Settings Editor (GeraldRudi preset), Naptime, Leandroid (but I need to figure out if this is actually working). I am also using dark themes were possible as these are better for AMOLED screens. I've also tweaked kernel in EXKM but nothing major that would positively impact battery.

Just to follow up, I have completed my first full cycle and can report that I got just over 6 hours of SOT over about 33 hours.

I had a bit of Bluetooth and GPS but I do keep the screen brightness as low as possible which really does help battery life as well.

I have also included CPU frequencies for reference, I haven't made any governor tweaks but that would be something to look at or maybe wait for custom kernels which I'm sure would have different governors including EAS based ones.

Yeah I definitely think so. There has been a trend in recent years of reducing battery life IMO. I had easily 8 hours of SOT over two full days on my HTC One M8 when I first got it and each year it's just gotten worse to the point now where 6 hours is considered great but I'm not complaining, I will take that over other phones barely managing 4 to 5 hours SOT.

Very excited to see how far this phone can be optimised on battery life with custom ROMs and Kernels. Good days ahead

Make sure to post your results when you complete a full charge and what you've done battery savingwise to achieve that

The battery life in mine is awesome. 21 hours, on 4g/WiFi and 4:30 hours SOT on half battery.

Probably will last me more than 2 days with normal usage :)

I can get around 8 hours SOT with medium use and brightness set to low. I am mostly indoors and I am impressed. With the same usage on my OPO I got 3.5 hours SOT.

ElementalX and 4.5.2 is out and coming out very shortly so the game will change again battery life wise. There will be different kernels that will help or hinder battery life depending on how much they are geared that way or towards performance.

Awesome. The OP5 definitely looks like a good phone for battery life as we can run the phone pretty hard and still get decent SOT

Yes this is my normal usage. Probably its that good cause i dont use insta, facebook etc. Maybe i will install the instagram app and look a bit around.

Im just waiting for official TWRP to root and tweak the whole phone. It can even be better. :):D

I would like to see LTE only

My first charge was data only. I've had a couple of issues with stand by drain but I think that has been sorted now (back down to 2-3% drain over night) so should be able to get another decent reading today.

I am however now on freedomOS and ElementalX so things are changing up and I can see there is another OTA fix on the way.bit hard in the early weeks to get through a full day without something changing!!

    Haha ironically, I'm now getting crap batter life lol, one rogue app, doing a bit of bug testing for cash and it's had an impact on idle battery.

    Definitely need a fresh reinstall at some point.

    Need to break that 15 hour SOT.

    What's the highest anyone's ever got ??

    The OP should be updated with a leaderboard.. actually I might make one myself.
    15 hrs on New kernel.

    how on the earth you managed that ?

    Details please ? Also can you tap on the graph and post a ss.
    Basically he didn't do much with his phone.

    Let's make this the official battery life thread for the Oneplus 5, enjoy :good:

    Holy Cow, I can't say anymore about this phone! Simply amazing!

    -Bone Stock 4.5.3, Unrooted
    -Still have the stock screen protector
    -Auto-Brightness On
    -Bluetooth connected to Fitbit
    -GPS and Location Services On
    -Night Mode On All Day
    -Not running Greenify or any battery saver apps.
    -All Cell Data on T-Mobile, No Wifi
    -Battery Saver turns on at 5 %

    Slept 8 hours over night unplugged and I just achieved 11 HOURS OF SOT IN ONE FULL CHARGE!!! I have never seen anything like it in all my years owning Android phones.
    Incredible!
