OnePlus 6 update kills the battery in a few hours

Following the recent update to version 5.1.8 of OxygenOS, some OnePlus 6 owners are now going to the official forums of the company to report serious problems with the battery life on their devices.

According to these users, this sudden change occurred without their having changed the usage patterns of the device and the battery life of the device has decreased by approximately half.

In fact, a second forum related to the same subject indicates that the battery only lasts for half of what lasted, since several users report that the device is being deactivated even if it has a load equal to or greater than 50%. Others simply indicate that they normally reach more than eleven hours of battery life, but now they are lucky to see five or six hours.

The source of the problem may be related to changes made by OnePlus in relation to how the OnePlus 6 manages the battery when the screen is turned on.

In most cases, the device appears to be 50 percent or more charged before turning off suddenly, as shown in the image below.

At least one user reported that despite using a streaming radio application for almost an hour, all battery consumption – about 20% – seemed to be associated with the screen.

However, the battery consumption also does not seem to be the total cause of the problems. Other users in the forum are reporting that the camera application is blocking or freezing after the update is installed.

These two issues are very serious, considering that smartphones are indispensable in the day to day of the users. Yet OnePlus has been relatively fast in deploying updates, so it should not be long before a fix is ??released.
