Im planning to buy OnePlus 9 pro phone, everything in this phone is perfect for my needs except the battery life. almost all the reviews on the internet suggest that the battery life of the phone is average, and some site say it's worse than that of the oneplus 8 pro, even though both phones have roughly the same battery capacity with the oneplus 9 pro having more efficient display and processor. so do you think it will be improved soon with a software update? and for those how bought the oneplus 8 pro at lunch last year, did you experience the same issue?​

    Battery life isn't great, but I top it off for about 10-15 minutes late afternoon (half a charge or so) and I'm good to go. I'll keep my old 30W charger (from my 7 Pro) in my car just in case I'm ever caught with a low battery, but it doesn't seem to be an issue. I certainly welcome any improvements, though.

    In the summer i will be moving back home where frequent blackouts are a common thing specially during the hot days, that is why im worried about battery life. and i dont like carrying power banks.
    Anyway thanks guys for the replys, and hope future updates would include battery improvements.

    I've upgraded from a Samsung Galaxy Note 9. I'm really surprised how quickly my phone has died the past few days at work. Only gets me through about 8hr of listening to podcasts, screen off before I hit 20%. I hope that something improves because I was hoping with this phone I'd be able to get through more of my day without charging.

    It's astonishing to me that all the improvements to hardware and particularly power efficiency over the years have resulted in... the same SOT and battery life in general as my four old phone. Progress 🙄

    They'd rather have the phone charge from 0 to 100% in about 30 minutes so that's their *solution* to the "problem". ;)

    Btw a new update that ends .3.3 seems to be rolling out in India and should further improve battery life. :) it's great to see they're doing something, hope battery life will get even better.
    Sorry for the bad news but battery is still draining fast. Phone is heating also. They fixed nothing. I hope its fixable otherwise its a flop phone.

    Yeah I now have my phone for 2 days, it's a garbage battery!

    It drains like close to 20% per hour of 'light usage', with low brightness only FHD......

    Also it drains the battery even when it's supposed to be Idle (no AOD)!


    Will probably return this ****.

      its normal because of background services are running even its idle
      This is not normal! I got 6% battery lost over an 8 hour night.

      so what do you expected? 0% over 8 hours? Even Galaxy S21 series is drain 5 or 10 over night dude

      Yeah, 5-10% drain over night is normal. But user @nickporwal told he loses 23% over night, and you reply it is normal. I will tell you, that is not normal dude!

      You said you got 6% drained not 23% dude..
      Omg can you read?

      I went four days with light usage, still had 9 hours left when I charged it. Seems pretty good to me. With moderate to heavy use I make it through the day easily.

      It charges to 100% in under 30min...
      So seriously, what is it that you do all day where you need to have your screen on for 6-7h, hard usage, without any acces to a power plug to charge it?
      Are you a ranger in a Safari Park that tracks Rhino's?
