Has anyone else noticed this......

The battery that used to last me for two whole days on my everyday tasks is now discharging very quickly as fast as a single day and that too even when I am not doing too many tasks.

It seems after the update the battery life has gone down.

If anyone else has experienced the same problem please reply and If anyone knows the solution then help..



  • Same here... Am also the issue ✌?

  • Same issue I'm also facing . Battery which used to last me for 2 days is simply lasting me just for a day or lil more that's it .This is after my update to android 10 . Please fix this

  • In my country, the Czech Republic, users on the forums, on the other hand, praise longer battery life in the A10 and I can confirm it.

    Which country are you from?

  • India.

    Under what kind of workload did you test it?

  • I didn't test the battery capacity after the update, I just use my phone the same day after day and after updating to Android 10, AccuBattery shows me approx. the same battery statistics as with the previous version of Android but shows me a greater percentage of deep sleep at night which is better. Hence my feeling that battery isn't any worse than previously.

    Screen off 120h 52m

    Combined use 56h 39h

  • I'm not going to say that you're wrong. But... so far, I've read this kind of post every week with and with every single update we've released. I none of these cases (except when we activated the double knock to retract the camera feature) have we made any changes that should/could have negative impact on the battery.

    In fact, I want to remember that basically every user who has brought this up, has later found that it was an app that they installed during the same time or that they fixed their issue with a factory reset. You can always find someone else who thinks their battery life has gone down too. If this was really the case, then you would see not two or three others that agree but page after page with angry users.

    So... before we jump to the conclusion that Android Q have had a negative impact on your battery, let's try to see if we have an app that could be the cause of this. The first test is to leave your phone in flight mode overnight without charging the phone. If you lose more than a couple of percent (3-6% is ok), then there might be something wrong. If you don't lose more, then continue to test #2

    Go to system settings -> battery -> PowerMaster -> Auto-start manager. Here you need to remove the permission to auto restart for apps you don't fully trust. Especially those you have installed recently. When you have done this, kill all apps.

    If your battery life i still not better, then I'm sorry but you will need to start from scratch with a factory restart.

    If the factory restart doesn't help, then we need to log your phone to find out why it drops battery life much faster.

    In my case I have an improved battery life after Android 10, lasting 2 days with 2 sim cards and 4G, so I agree with Anders, not everyone has the same issue with Android 10.

    I had worse battery life and performance after the update until I did a factory data reset, then it was all back to normal, in my experience it's always best to do a factory data reset after a major update (pie to Android 10), personally I think it should probably be recommended in the changelog for the update in order to get the best experience

  • Hi i am getting 5hours - 6hours only with continuous playing of pubg, does any one tryied

  • thats more than enough pubg is high proformance game bro compare with others like oneplus 7 etc they get only 3-4 hours

  • I don't see major difference anyway. Make sure you don't enable location unless necessary.

  • Even i am facing the battery drain issue a lot after updating to android 10, not even getting one day.

    I also, removed the permission, auto restart for all the apps. (Go to system settings -> battery -> PowerMaster -> Auto-start manager.)

    Every 15 mins i am getting the below issue

    When i click on it, it was not even opening so that atlest i can stop the services.

    This app is not related to anyone of my apps which is installed, this look device\preloaded app.

    It would be great if some one help on this ?

  • @Judan

    Hey i still didn't get the update...i m from india n I don't want to download manually too...when i will get update

  • If you have good battery life I would suggest you don't..........I am experimenting some options and will update results soon.

  • Also can you post your battery statistics of your usage from 100 to 0 percent of your usage.

  • Best answer.

    After the update to A10, battery life is the same (maybe better) than in Pie, for me.

  • I described the previous AccuBattery battery statistics (above) 3 days after the update to A10.

    Today it is 8 days after the update, the results are even better as the system settled:

    Screen on 13h 4m

    Screen off 143h 16m

    Combined use 60h 9m

  • I have the same problem. After the recent system update of my Zenphone 6 (model I01WD) to android 10 (WW_17.1810.1910.73) my battery drains much faster than before.

    It is also strange that since the update my zenphone 6 regularly gives notifications that some app got location information (e.g. "Sky Map" and "Skyss" (public transport planner for Bergen Norway)) while I have never started these apps since the update and none of these apps auto-started nor pre-loaded, and I regularly kill all unnecessary apps. Why does an app that is not preloaded and not running get location info?

  • Same issue in Italy.

    Maybe the black theme?
