Late last year, Chinese smartphone maker OnePlus launched its flagship OnePlus 6T smartphone with an in-display fingerprint scanner, waterdrop notch, and a bigger 3,700mAh battery, something that should ideally offer full day worth battery life. And while the phone does deliver enough juice to last the whole day, some users have noticed strange battery behavior over the past few days.
nePlus 6T users have taken to Reddit to vent their frustration. However, it doesn’t seem to be a widespread issue. One of the users said that their smartphone’s battery life has been cut down to half. The user tried restricting background apps, clearing cache and updating the phone to the latest software from T-Mobile, but all of it did not help. As of now, what bug is causing the issue is unknown.
Another user mentioned that he typically used to get a screen-on time of about 6-7 hours, however, over the past couple of days, it has been cut down to about 4 hours. One of the users also mentioned that besides the battery drain, his smartphone was getting extremely hot. However, the issue was fixed after performing a factory reset, the user said.
