    In the Developer Option Hidden Menu (in settings).

    To activate it go to: Settings > About phone > Build number

    Once you’ve found the Build number section of the settings, tap on the section 7 times. After two taps, a small pop up notification should appear saying "you are now X steps away from being a developer" with a number that counts down with every additional tap.

    Threads merged. My first advice would be to always see the pinned threads before starting a new one, usually they do answer most of the questions one might have. ;)

    Read the first post and I'm sure you will learn some nice ways to improve your battery stats,.

    hey, I'm new here. I wanted to know how to test SOT accurately? I charge my phone max to 90% and charge it again at 20%. right now the battery is 28% and I've gotten 4hrs of SOT so far, is it normal? please do reply.
    thank you.

    fixed the issue by having 2 Google accounts setup on the phone. I removed the additional account. Re-added the Google account with all the same sync settings. Battery consumption is now back to normal. With the Google Play Services now consuming considerably less.

    You could try these tips.

    1. Change theme to dark
    2.Enable Doze mode (It's in the Dev options, which is enabled by tapping "Build number" in Settings>About phone)
    3. Enable adaptive brightness (or disable it and set it to a low but comfortable brightness.)
    4. Use a black/minimalistic background

    You could try and delete some apps you don't use as they can connect in the background and use battery.

    5. Set the GPS precision to "Batery Saving"

    Note that these tips may vary between devices and users.

    P.S: I'll update this post as I find more and more options. Pin if you want to!

    so am experiencing battery drain issue(drastically). I charged my phone almost full like 97% and it got heated up maybe because of dash charge.so after charge when I looked at the battery hours left it showed me just 19 hrs even though my battery was at 78% at that time. usually it shows me like 1day and 19 hrs left but this is awfull...I think oneplus is degrading day by day..there are few other issues also but battery is one thing which we admire about oneplus...I even tried wiping cache from recovery but still the same...so is there anybody who can help me by giving logically solutions?

    what do you need that suggests on current usage a whole day is possible.

    what are you after 2 days? give us an idea of what will make you happy then one by one you could turn background app data refresh off, uninstall certain apps etc etc

    That's mine and it's normal. When ur battery goes below 5%, check how much time it ran and what was the SOT.

    Google play services seems to be causing the maximum battery drain. Try searching for a solution for that. Just Google it... it is a common problem.
