Please tell us some basic information before asking for help:

  1. Model Name: Max pro m1 4/64 gb
  2. Firmware Version: .84
  3. Rooted or not: not rooted
  4. Frequency of Occurrence: since last update
  5. APP Name & APP Version (If your issue relates to the app): battery draining quickly.

In addition to information above, please also provide as much details as you can, e.g., using scenario, what troubleshooting you've already done, screenshot, etc.


High consumption of battery noted ..after my last update from .82 to .84...... 82 version is the best optimization for battery.. after normal chrome web browsing ( only browsing..not playing video like YouTube etc) .. Battery reduces 10 percent on this new 84 version...but when i was on 82 version....the consumption was only 6 percent to maximum 7 percent. But headfone Sound quality is improved ...just fix battery consumption on next update... I am not a heavy user nor i use unnecessary apps on my phone.


  • Anyone who wants good battery backup...plz stay on .82 version firmware.

  • Yeah, since last 2 or 3 update, my screen on time has been reduced to 8 to 10 hour, it used to be around 12 hour back then. So, it's not really about 084 or 082, it been like this for a while.

  • Hi, when you say that your SOT (Screen on Time) has gone down, can you share the SOT after trying the below:

    1. Charge the battery to 100% & use as per your normal usage pattern

    2. When the battery strength reaches 10%, go to settings = Battery => Tap on the battery icon & share the graph

    3. settings => Battery => Check the screen & share the same.

    Please follow below steps may improve battery backup:

    1. Close apps that are not used (Bluetooth, WiFi, GPS, etc.)

    2. Adjust sleep time and brightness (Settings > Display)

    3. Boost memory when you see memory consumption is high with no app running,

    4. check for background running applications, stop/disable unwanted apps, you can manage apps from auto-start manager. 

  • Its not a sudden huge drain of battery like 10 percent extra per hour..... It's just 3 to 4 percent ...which i can expect to resolve in next updates as it was happened before in previous updates. .in 61 or 63 version i cant remember.

    The idea of draining battery to 10 percent is risky for battery life and this little draining problem isn't worth it. ....i never let my battery down below 40 percent.....

    Gps,wifi, Bluetooth, hotspot..all these are always turned off in my device...i have only single sim 3g with -92 dbm signal level. I always clear recent apps after usage.

    I just want to tell the developer team that, previous .82 version had good battery backup and use same battery optimization for next updates. That's it.

  • Another problem which i can assure you is about notification sound.. which was loud enough till .63 version firmware ...both in .82 and .84 firmware it is too low..

    You can check it ...it needs no proof.... Just install .63 firmware and listen the notification sound when you plugged in charger... And listen the same with .82 or .84 version... You can clearly hear the difference.

  • May be ...but in .84 , its higher than .82.... I watch videos on YouTube app for 1 hour and the drainage was only 6 percent on .82 version...but on this new .84 version..it is now 10 percent.

  • You are right.... My SOT was 14 to 16 hour on .59 ,60 or 61 i can't remember correctly... And notification sound is too low after .63 version.

    Hey, maybe you need to clear cache too by going into recovery mode. 🙂🙂🙂

    My battery backup has increased.
