    After updating my General Mobile GM5 Plus Android One phone to Oreo battery life has been reduced by about 50%. Any solutions available?

    Charge up to 100%, then let it drain to 20-30% with normal usage, without charging in between. Then show us:

    1. The main Settings>Battery screen.
    2. The fullscreen battery graph screen (which shows Awake time and Cell Signal Strength).
    3. The Screen category (to see total Screen On time).
    4. The Cell Standby category, if present (to see Time Without Signal).

    You might have to install a 3rd party battery monitor, like GSam Battery Monitor, to get the Cell Signal Strength graph.

    just before starting this thread I booted into recovery mode, wiped partition cache, and the battery seems normal now (for the past 24 hours). I did the same about a week ago, with the same result, but just for a day or two, and then it reverted to excessive draining. I will monitor the situation and post the requested screen shots should the battery begin to misbehave.
