Noticed this today. I'm having battery drain issue. I used to get higher SOT but now it's like the first 10-20% drain very quickly. This is ongoing for a couple of weeks now.


  • 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 the below steps may improve battery backup:

    1. Enable “Power saver” (Settings > Power management)

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

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

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

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

    I will share once my battery is at 10%. I always do keep an eye on background apps. As of now SOT is 1hr 20 mins from using Chrome and youtube battery is at 80% this used to be a lot better. Before I would've got the same SOT with a 11% drop not 20%. Also the problem is with first 20% battery drops quickly rest drains faster than before but not as fast as first 20%

    Edit : Its almost a year since I'm using this device, still this is too much for battery degradation

  • This looks ok, But the problem is really with the first 20%, i used to get better SOT and battery results.

  • Your battery stats are okay.

    Your phone is efficient in the 90-20 % range ...

    Avoid to let it drain at a low battery level without charging !

  • I see. Thanks mate. I'll follow your advice!
