Does anyone else is facing fast battery draining issue after the new update?
I'm leaving my phone at around 40% and in morning it's mostly switched off..
Please tell me how to fix this ? Shall I go ahead and buy new phone? Or is this issue for all after the update?

I too am facing battery issues on my Oneplus 5t, specially during standby. I lose nearly 20% battery overnight.

Also, I paid $450 for my Honor 9. I have no lags, no crashes, no reboots. Phone works fine.

I am using OnePlus 5T and after the Oxygen 5.1.2 update, I am also facing huge battery loss, even when the screen is off/standby mode. This is really frustrating.

piku, 24 Jun 2018I am on 5.1.8 update I am not facing any battery draining issues.I'm the same. My only issue is I seem to now have a Bluetooth bug where my Samsung Gear Sport keeps disconnecting every now and then - even without "battery optimisation" enabled on all of the samsung gear apps...

Other than that, seems fine

Oneplus 5 user, can confirm the battery got a lot worse after the last update. My usual 6 - 6.5 hours SOT became less than 5

glad i sell my oneplus 3t before this happened

Samsung takes nearly a year to push out the latest updates and even after so long (S8 Oreo) it has to pull them after releasing due to software bugs. Sony phones aren't even in the same league as Samsung, let alone Pixels. I'm a former Sony and Samsung user, now a Pixel and iPhone user. Sounds like you haven't used many phones and are talking nonsense.

I haven't noticed any excessive battery drain and have had no shutdowns on 1+ 6 since (or before) the update.

Ha-ha!
Keep buying replika brands and wonder why it doesn't work like a real high-end flagship. More like a flagship wannabe if you ask me.
Only Japanese and Korean for me.

Sure. Samsung has gotten better comparing to the past. But It's definitely still requires a really sharp refining stone to smooth out the experience on their UI.

I've not experienced any issues with my Oneplus 3, however it could be the auto brightness function if it's affecting screen on time, as I always manually adjust mine, where it otherwise increases the brightness more than necessary.
