Some users of the 2018 flagship of OnePlus, the 6T are complaining about a rapid battery drain issue in their smartphones. The problem was reported by some users on the internet, according to them their smartphone batteries were draining faster than normal. Many users of the smartphone took to the official OnePlus forum to report about the issue. According to some users, some apps installed in the phone were consuming more battery than usual and that was affecting the overall battery performance, some users has reported that the Google Play Services was consuming more battery than it did before. They are getting on an average 4-5 hours of screen-on time compared to the 7-8 hours it gave before the problem began.
The company’s official reddit forum was flooded by the complaints of the users about the battery issue, the original user posted that he was facing problems with his battery and not even the battery saver or a factory reset seems to solve the problem.
Despite OnePlus being the company which always keeps its software updates in mind and pushes the updates regularly. But till now there has no official word from the company and there hasn’t been a software update to solve this problem. Recently the company pushed out updates for the OnePlus 6 and 6T along with the other smartphones it released in the past years till the OnePlus 3.
The OnePlus 6T offers Snapdragon 845Soc with 6GB/8GB RAM and has a 3700mAh battery which is capable of handling a full day of tasks thrown at it. And this it was the first flagship to come with the android 9.0 Pie out of the box. But this issue is cutting down the screen-on time by half.
But surprisingly not all users have reported this issue. The problem could be most likely related to some apps or updates or it could be a software issue or a bug. But despite all the complaints the company still has to address the issue and push out solutions or updates as their hasn’t been an official word as of yet.
