Whenever and wherever I look on the internet,be it youtube reddit or XDA forums.
Everyone seems to get a 1-2 day battery life out of the OnePlus 7. Which is apparently about 10Hrs SoT.
I don't get it. I've been trying everything since day 1 I got the phone ( even did a factory reset ) but the max SoT i get is 3.5Hrs ( usually even less ) .
I don't even game on my device now and don't make any calls.
All I do is youtube and instagram with little to no whatsapp.
Rarely a little camera and still the battery life is tragic.
Can someone help me out
Or give me any solutions to push my phone a couple more years.
Even old phones like 3T or 5T users claim more battery than me 🥺
I can't live this way where I have to charge my phone 3 times a day 🤷🏻‍♂️

I am on the same boat like you, do not know how people get so many SOT hours. I know my phone is 5G and nearly 2 years old. But anyway I must top it up everyday afternoon/evening otherwise it would die. This is one of the cases why I am moving to samsung, I think quick charge degrade battery much faster.

    Hello,

    check out this app and submit an idle dump for analysing your idle drain, maybe it's the root cause

  • It's a paid app.
    I'm not wasting my money
    Or even going as far to get a cracked apk
    Just give me something useful
    It's also available in a free version like mentioned within the link, so you can test it.
    Nobody knows your setup of your phone, so this app helps to break things down to a level which can be compared and analyzed as you can see from the linked thread 🙂
    Since years this app helps to identify issues related to battery issues.

    Thank you
    I understand but the process seems to be tedious to me and with my current usage I don't think I can help with that routine.
    Is there any other way
    I can describe anything for reference though

    If you can post signal strenghts over time, cpu usage over time, wakeup per apps over time and lot of more interesting parameters you're good to go;)
    Time should be over night at least 6h minimum without touching the device.

    Otherwise it't easier to follow the recommendations to generate the dump file and post in the linked thread with a description(not here):

    Before posting a dump please make sure that the references for kernel wakelocks and alarms were processed correctly. Reading a dump takes a few minutes and it would be great if you could not waste the time of whomever studies it, aiming at helping you.
    Generally a dump "since unplugged" is better than "since charged". When you start your analysis make sure to follow following procedure:
    - enable watchdog processing in BBS settings
    - verify from/to references is checked under custom views
    - full charge device then let it run down to ~95%
    - put device to sleep for at least 6 hours (no touchy!)
    - wake device and launch BBS
    - adjust from/to references to 'screen off' and 'screen on'
    - save dumpfile from share menu
    - post resulting log to this thread (or provide cloud link)

    Any other ways are cumbersome and not effective(like screenshots)

    Can you please elaborate the steps
    I'm having a hard time understanding
    I installed the app and ran the necessary adb commands successfully
    Now I'm charging the phone to 100 %

    Please describe the next steps a little more I didn't understand
    And give me the link where I have to post share the dump file

    Hello,

    above your post I've posted the next steps and within this thread you should post your dump file as well as ask questions related to the app itself after reading the guide from the first post:)
