OnePlus 6T users facing rapid battery drain: Reports


The Reddit post reads, "So for the past day or so my 6t's battery has suddenly started draining from 80 per cent extremely fast. If I had to guess I'd say my battery life was at least halved all of a sudden and I'm not even putting it through heavy workloads or anything."

The user also mentioned that he tried putting the background restrictions on the battery draining app but nothing is working to stop this battery issue. He also said that he tried updating the software of the phone to the latest version which is available on the T-Mobile version. Even factory resetting and using battery saving apps is not working with the issue.

Another user has mentioned in the same thread that he used to get a screen-on time of about 6-7 hours but now it has cut to about 4 hours. One of the users commented that apart from battery drain issue his smartphone was getting extremely hot which is only fixed by a factory reset.

It seems that the battery issue is caused by an unknown bug. So far we don't know whether the OnePlus is working on the fix or even aware of the bug. Because the company has not released any official statement about this issue.

Just to recall, the OnePlus 6T sports a 6.41-inch display that features optic AMOLED. Under the hood, it is powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC, coupled with either 6GB or 8GB of RAM. It has a storage of 128GB and 256GB.
