My rog phone 3 is draining battery a lot

100-0% in 6-7 hrs however I use my device (standby or normal or heavy usage)

During stand by download manager,media storage , android system draining battery a lot.

During normal usage android system draining most of the battery (apps are using less amount).

Device : asus rog phone 3

Version Number : 17.0823.2009.99

Antivirus scan showing malware in bluetooth.

Can it be removed by factory reset ?

This must be a false positive since other antivirus apps are not showing this.

There must be other virus some where or its just a bug in software since other asus phones users are complaining about this


  • Bug or not I see this as a win,it means I can use apps for a veeery long time without thinking of the battery

    Hi mudunurisriram,

    I don't see it as a big issue right now. The virus part I don't think so its correct. Some App detects hardware, software and certificates differently.

    Make sure you install Apps only from Playstore that's the best way to stay safe. Android Antivirus doesn't actually make sense if you use the above listed things.

    For battery, I would suggest you to share the complete graph after following the below steps:

    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
