Hi, have anyone here facing the battery issue where in 12 hrs, need to charging the phone 3-4 times. The usage of the phone is mainly for whatsapp messaging and occasionally camera.

I found th battery is ridiculously draining fast.

When using camera, the body is heating up sharply, i barely can use the camera beyond 5 minutes as the heat is unbearable. the same thing happen when i am in video call.

Thanks in advance


  • Happened to me too. One minute everything is fine, the next one phone heats up and battery drains ~ 1-2% every 10 minutes without doing anything with it.

    Restart fixed it for me. Seemed to be related to mobile data/signal. Used data on sim 2 for a 30 minute meeting at that time. Signal was full 4g+

    I have the same. Compare to my old s10 lite it is really not acceptable

    I'm in the first days of using the Zenfone 8, and the main problem up to now with the battery is the fact that it doesn't seem to get into deep doze, so the idle drain is way too high .

    If we could get a way of diagnosing this so it can be fixed, the idle drain would be much better. Otherwise the battery performance is bad enough I may have to return the phone, since once of the main reasons for me getting it is the 4000 mah battery.

  • Got the same issue during whatsapp video call, phone got very hot. I did feedback to asus, don't think any of its suggestions was helpful.

  • Android system is quite high and it might have a explanation but it will be very hard to find out why. Sometimes a factory reset is the easiest way to fix it. I also recommend you to not use always on display as it currently consumes too much battery during idle. I hope with time that we will be able to offer an option where it turns on only when you touch the screen.

    whatsapp video calls is demanding to any phone and it will drain your battery as fast as playing genshin impact.
