The latest update made my phone useless piece of... The battery stats from 90% to 30%, the device barely passes one hour of indoor usage and the battery is gone.
I have the same from the beginning, that is already 2 months. my patience is over. Asus sees no problem, no reaction.
I would say it's an improvement on my end. Battery in dynamic mode. Good and consistent network coverage area.
Still it's a bit worse than It was on OP8T, however it had a tad bigger battery. 4500mAh IIRC.
Full day, 3 hours on screen and almost half of battery, i thing it's ok.
I think i's ok too.
Could you please share your screens of battery settings including used power mode?
all time in one location and with wifi connection? 4G or 3G?
If anyone still did not have HD voice after update, try restarting phone once again. I did that and it seems to have done the trick, call quality is much better now. Finally phone is usable for it's main purpose after almost 3 months.
Had one unplanned reboot. Strange thing is that it looks like it happened when device was in stand-by (not in my hands).
Had talk in WhatsApp with video switching from rear to main camera few times for about 10-15 minutes. Then after call clicked power button once to switch off display and then put phone to the table. After 5 minutes got phone call from one of my contacts and i saw phone number of that person instead of his name. When I switched on dispaly after call I noticed that phone asked me to enter my PIN for lockscreen for first time (no fingerprints possible). Then I realized that phone self-rebooted during that 5 minutes being on the table...
How to get logs or something else if it happens next time?
I had no random reboots/crashes on .83. Got it once yesterday on .103

Dynamic setting, adaptive battery enabled, ultra saving between 00:00 and 7:00, background apps managing enabled.
Im not in one location, more like 2/3 of time with wifi in room, 1/3 outside with 4G.
I spend most of my time in rooms where the 4g range is not always available. Battery consumption under such conditions is enormous. Tomorrow I will do a test and share the hotspot from another smartphone. Then i will compare the consumption.
@daniel91m constant switching between different networks can definitely cause higher power consumption. You said 4g is not always available, so I take your phone switches between 3g and 4g?
Exactly. At work, I move on different floors of the building where the range of networks varies (but always available). Battery disappears immediately. Even when I am in one room where LTE signal about 3/4 full power and my screen is on the consumption is very high.
Someone earlier on this forum wrote about this problem - the battery disappearing when walking outside, when the phone switches between the different antennas.
I think it was related with switching between wifi and cellular network. Temp fix was to toggle airplane mode.
in this case it doesn't work
After this update, the phone heats up very much even when browsing the internet, which was not the case before.
My phone heats up too. With 4g and location on and using maps or waze the phone was at 48°C. Too much for a phone i think.
This update greatly reduced background battery drain. Basically now with light use I can easily achieve 3 days without charging it. It was impossible before that.
Also the phone is not randomly warming up while on standby. Before this update, often the phone was warm even if I haven't used it for hours.
Adjusting image brightness in night mode is gone with this update?
Today got strange phone behavior. Phone was near me, lying on the table. Then someone called me. I heard ringtone, but screen is off. I took phone in hands and pressed vol-up to mute call ringtone. Tried to switch on display by power button and display didn't switch on. Vibro is working, i tried (in blind) to push some buttons on screen and it gave some vibro haptics. I tried to push power button twice (it is set to flashlight/torch) - and nothing. Phone didn't turn on flashlight. Then I pressed continously power button and tap to right top corner (reboot) and then phone rebooted.
Had no such behavior on .83 FW and earlier. Have no idea why it happened.
I have been using the device since may. From then til now the issues I have experienced: heating, ghost touches and battery life, seems to have improved alot. Particulary since last update.
