    I put my phone in airplane mode for a while, seems to have made the battery better now.

    Even after you turn off airplane mode?

    Yup. I was working yesterday somewhere with absolutely zero signal so I put it on airplane mode for the day. When I switched it off it was back to how good the battery was on the old software. Fingers crossed it does the same today!

    Well, I'm still getting ridiculous power consumption by the Android OS, it seems to have got worse for me. I normally got 1.5 to 2 days battery. I'm lucky now to get 1 day. I'm thinking about rolling back to Marshmellow. The OS is great, everything seems to work just great, but I can't figure out the battery drain.

    That's weird. But something happened to my phone too... It was draining a lot on idle but after a few days it went back to normal.

    Honestly, EMUI 5 has been pretty problem free for me. I do notice a little less Bluetooth stability, but that is usually resolved by toggling it off/on, or a reboot.

    I spoke to soon! It soon went back to excessive drain! Looking at the battery chart, it shows wifi being on constant, even when in turn it off. That probably doesn't help!

    Most likely because emui 5 whitelists everything whereas emui 4.1 you have to allow apps permissions yourself.

    We I've figure the problem out, it's down to syncing of the accounts. I've had to leave them active. It appears when I stop auto syncing of my Google and WhatsApp accounts the OS goes nuts and just gets in a loop. I've got everything active no close on exit and battery is back to normal. I'll see how I get on for the next few days and update again on how I'm getting on

    Yeah I really like the emui 5 approach. You only need to blacklist those apps which are problematic, IMO

    Well I'm back to square one. After 24 hours of all going well. Android OS use rocketed up again. I'm really at a loss now. It has to be an app I'm running but not sure which one it is.

    Have you logged the issues on the beta app?
    12-05-2016 05:51 AM
  13. vinchendoh's Avatar
    I'm about to do it, seems its been logged several times already based on users from the XDA forums.

    I'd rather be able to give as much feedback based on the hows and why's, but I can't work it out! You only know its happening when the battery falls super fast.

    My OS battery percentage was high today (30%), but that was because I didn't use the phone much so the OS is using more in comparison to other things. When I am using it a lot with high SoT the OS percentage is closer to 10-15%

    Honestly i never look at it unless I start to see a high idle drain.

    I think high idle drain is caused by having mobile data always on in sleep

    Interesting theory . You could try to disable mobile data when in an area with wifi to see if it holds true

    Started noticing that while the phone is plugged in to charge, the screen never totally turns off. It just dims, but I can still see the screen and bring it back to full brightness just by touching it. If I push the power button it cuts off as usual. I am running Nova Launcher on the latest version of the Beta that I downloaded yesterday.

    I've been doing some more testing and the Android OS drain is still present. Somthing is keeping the system awake for long periods of time. I can confirm though that the problem is NOT with the beta build. I've set my system up on a Pixel XL and I'm getting the same issue. Its clearly a App running in the back ground. Going to spend the next few days and try and find out what app/apps are causing my issues.

    The only real comparison would be running the same device on nougat and marshmallow with no extra apps installed and see which runs the battery down fastest. You'll probably find that the nougat stops other apps more than marshmallow and therefore the OS uses a higher percentage of power because other apps are using less.
    Edit: check the mah being used and not the percentage.

    Just been reading a few Dev threads, and they suggest that the biggest problem lies with Google backup. Which can be turned off in settings.

    Battery has massively improved. But my new issue is that now and then, the screen goes crazy and all these random "touches" happen, turning settings on/off and playing Havoc with whatever is on the screen on the time. A reset seems to solve it for a while, but sooner or later it comes back!

    That sounds like a hardware issue. Like there's water or dust getting behind the glass.

    It's never been near water. I'll see if it still happens once off the beta.
