    @thejus44 Here are two screenshots of using the phone till 50% charge was left Before update: .49 After update: .56
  • Anna-Kin
    @thejus44 With the same usage as prior to update I am consistently getting lower SOT, I don't have apples-to-apples comparison of Screenshots, however, I do have a couple. I will sort them and upload them soon. The reduction in battery life is noticeable TBH and performance has taken a hit as well, the benchmark scores are…
  • Anna-Kin
    I don't think restoring would have any effect as "Restoring" will auto-download all apps from Playstore and you will do that manually anyway. But, I do recommend NOT TO INSTALL THE LATEST UPDATE, it reduced my phone's SOT by 2 hours.
  • Anna-Kin
    When u take a SS, we tap the "Long SS" pop up right? Just keep tapping that for as long of a SS you want.😁
  • Anna-Kin
    The Antutu score: For Reviewers: 820000 After .49 update: 813000 After .56 update: 809000 Will the score keep on reducing after each update? Please let us know what information we can provide so that these performance issues can be fixed. @Gustav_ASUS @Anders_ASUS
  • Anna-Kin
    Did the update in any way reduce or affect the battery life and SOT?
  • Anna-Kin
    I hope these stats are wrong, but the rate at which my charge is draining I think it might be accurate. I took the SS at 12:50, now at the time of upload, 12:55, the charge dropped to 97. Wow..
  • Anna-Kin
    I agree some aspects of the OS are quite unoptimized which lead to battery drain.
  • Anna-Kin
    The first day after formatting I got 11 hrs of SOT, then 2nd day (this includes Friday and Saturday) with light-mixed usage, and phone standby/idle sucking the most charge, got 10 hrs of SOT.
  • Anna-Kin
    By list of apps I mean, the apps which we will be using for that day, and all of us have to use it so that the variance in battery usage will be lower. Example: I use apps like, Insta, 9gag, Whatsapp, COD M, Netflix, and Youtube.
  • Anna-Kin
    @Reaperzwolf and @thejus44 now that our phones are formatted and the battery backup is better than before, I request you guys to monitor the SOT and usage so that we can identify if the battery backup lasts. Lets come up with a list of apps to run which which can replicate our usage and see what SOTs we get respectively. I…
  • Anna-Kin
    Compared to the 2 and 3 the split battery is to blame as well. Because the efficiency is reduced compared to a single large battery. Plus, the split batteries arent even 3000 mAh (misleading advertising), they are 2885mAh each, making the phone a 5770mAh battery phone. I will disable auto-updates as well, that's a nice…
  • Anna-Kin
    I agree with @Reaperzwolf it seems that the battery issue is with the OS/Software and not with the hardware. This battery issue is being faced by a lot of ROG Phone 5 users, and should not be ignored by ASUS, so Mods, kindly do not ignore this issue, we will gladly help with any kind of feedback or usage chart you might…
  • Anna-Kin
    @Reaperzwolf I did not return the phone as resetting the phone as per @thejus44's suggestion did improve the battery life. However, I am still not sure how long the improved battery life will last as we are pretty much sure now the issue is with the software/OS and not with the phone.
  • Anna-Kin
    Hey, @thejus44 thank you for your suggestion, I was testing for the past 2 days. Yes, the battery life did improve after the factory reset, 1st day I got 11 hours of SOT with 9% charge remaining. And the 2nd day, i.e. till today 1 pm IST, I got 8.5 hours of SOT, including 1.2 hours of video call and with 20% charge…
  • Anna-Kin
    These are the stats for just one Battery in the ROG 5 I would guess as Accubattery does not detect the 2nd battery.
  • Anna-Kin
    Flipkart is no longer offering Replacement for ROG 5, because of Limited stock. 🥲🥲
  • Anna-Kin
    Haha.. So, I reset the phone, then disabled always-on LTE from Dev options, refresh rate is Auto, 5G is disabled, so.. let's hope for the best.
  • Anna-Kin
    Thanks for the tips, I ll try the hardreset and follow your tips, except for the Rooting part, I want the warranty to stay 😁
  • Anna-Kin
    Yeah, I ll put in a replacement request, and in the meantime, I ll do what @thejus44 mentioned, except I ll not root the phone.
  • Anna-Kin
    Yep yep, if your SOT is consistent as before, then I also getting the same SOT, i.e. 6 Hours approx with 25% charge remaining. But, then there's theJus44 who is getting 12 hours SOT.. damn.. I am confused. Is my phone faulty or did Asus sent shit units to India? Who knows.. M going crazy.... 😂😅
  • Anna-Kin
    Thanks for all the help man, I appreciate it. If it's not too much trouble, before I make the final call, can you share a screenshot or just tell me in average, how much screen on time do you get with mixed usage. I am asking this because based on your battery life I ll decide if my phone has a inferior battery or not. So…
  • Anna-Kin
    Yes, I am from India. 2 days back I had contacted support for a replacement but cancelled it, and now I only have the option for refund. I had hoped for a replacement ☹️.
  • Anna-Kin
    Its the global ROM, I meant I haven't downloaded and installed from the website. Yeah, i guess i ll try to get it replaced. @Reaperzwolf Just look at jus44's battery usage man. Its amazing. I mean.. how? I know that isnt the full screenshot, still it has 12 hrs of SOT with browsing, watching YouTube and texting, impressive.
  • Anna-Kin
    I haven't installed the WW Rom from website but, I am running the same build as yours.
  • Anna-Kin
    Thanks a lot. I have a couple of questions, if you don't mind. 😅 Are there a few hours of gaming involved in the above Screenshot? Could please tell me how much Screen time you were getting before the optimizations was it same as mine i.e. around 6 hours with light- mixed usage or more than 6 hours?
  • Anna-Kin
    Here is another screenshot in which Duo sucks the charge like juice. All in all, I am getting 6 hours of screen on time, Is it normal for a ROG Phone 5 with a 6000mAh battery to have 6 hours of SOT? Because the ton of reviews I have watched claimed more than 9 hours of mixed usage, and I am getting 3-4 hours less SOT. My…
  • Anna-Kin
    Yes, I agree. Here are some screenshots of charge stats, the battery life has been low, like 5-6 hours with light usage. Today's screenshot. Older
  • Anna-Kin
    Yes.. I am considering replacing my phone. However, have a look at this screenshot I took today. The battery life suddenly seems to have improved? Battery life is still sub-par, Duo is still sucking more charge though. Any Mod I would love to hear your suggestions, Flipkart India has a bad reputation when it comes to…
  • Anna-Kin
    Thanks for the suggestion, however, my issue is not with just the idle battery drain, but, while using apps like Duo, as you can see from my Screenshot, my phone's battery drained by 18% when I used Duo for 20 mins, whereas in Reaperzwolf's case, Duo was used for 1.2 hours and it only consumed 20% or so. And as per the…
