    I am facing the same problem too on my max pro 2

  • Please follow 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 consumes is high with no app running,

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

  • Super slow charging speed, it stated need 12hours to fully charged from 50% battery. This occurs right after I update the phone

    2. Firmware Version:  PKQ1.WW_Phone-16.2017.2004.063-20200407

    SIdenote: The GPS on my phone also does not work most of the time, will always show GPS lost, no signal, while on the other older phone does not have this issue.
