    I typically get 5 to 5.5 hrs of SOT and on good days 6 to 7 hrs.
    Super happy with battery life and dash charge [e]1f44d[/e]

    same problem. just got a new OP5 today. the battery is draining insanely fast.

    I applied the update immediately so can't compare too before but there is definitely a problem.

    One question, I've always wondered.
    Does enabling some and disabling some gestures make any difference in battery life?
    I mean enabling even a single gesture means the screen is tracking touch even when the screen is off.
    So enabling a few and disabling others shouldn't make any difference.
    Any ideas about this?

    Got the same problem too. Did the latest update that rolled out a few days ago and now my phone has gone from surviving 2 days to just half a day. Cache was cleared.

    Problem seems to be "Google Services" - in just 2 hours off charge i'm down to 68% battery without using the phone. Google Services has used 10%, before the update Google Services usage was minimal.

    CPU total for google services is at a staggering 1h 21 minutes - 319mAh

    Just typing this im now down to 64% battery....

    Just want to add i've had the OP5 since it launched and it was perfectly fine until this update. Nothing else has changed on the phone.

    Edit, asked my mate who also has OP5:

    [13:03, 11/13/2017] Me:Lewis did you do latest oneplus update?
    [13:04, 11/13/2017] Lewis: Yup why?
    [13:04, 11/13/2017] Me: Has your battery life changed since doing it?
    [13:04, 11/13/2017] Lewis Yes!
    [13:05, 11/13/2017] Lewis I charged an hour ago, 79% already, have only used WhatsApp
    [13:05, 11/13/2017] Me: Yeah, getting rinsed to shit. it's not just us by looks of it​

    For those who are complaining about bad battery life the above pics are of 4.5.14 and heavyy usee and i constantly got over 5 1/2 SOT evrytime.For good battery life what i did was

    1.Restart the phone every 2-3 days

    2.Clear cache im recovery mode every 3-4 days

    3.Charge the phone when the phone hits below 30 mark for 3-4 times

    Let me know if this helps. It did toh me and some of my friends to get good battery life. OP5 - 4.5.14

    you can also add dark wallpaper and dark theme, low brightness and turning off animation from developer option... this saves battery too

    i was wondering if people that have battery drain problem? and they have clear cache already
