So my lockscreen isn't liking notifications anymore. Whereby it used to give me message contents, it now just gives me an icon of the app. I haven't changed any notification settings.

My battery life is really bad. I'm down to 75% already and my SOT is 45 minutes. I've checked the battery stats and I'm not using anything battery intensive. NFC and BT are all off, screen brightness is 50%. I don't have anything on that is sucking the battery. Have I got a dud?

hackdrag0n: What's your time since last charge.

 

 

 

Took it off charge at 7am this morning

 

 

 

Now at 64% with 1 hour 5 minutes SOT.

 

This is probably the worst battery life of any phone I've ever used.

Something's wildly wrong there. Check the phone manager app out too, and factory reset if all else fails. Mate 9 has the best Android hardware on the market today and should outperform essentially every other flagship for battery life.

Yeah something's keeping it awake.

 

Mate 9 will let you drill down pretty deep into the battery stats, far moreso than vanilla Android. WhatsApp is using a hefty amount for one. Tapping each item in the software menu there will tell you A. how long it kept the phone awake for, and B. how many mAh of battery juice it used.

 

 

 

Check out the 'power intensive apps' and 'close apps after screen lock'/'lock screen cleanup' functions within the Phone Manager app. You can also hold down on apps in the multitasking overview to 'lock' them in memory. I use mine on a whitelist basis, kill everything except the stuff I really want to remain in RAM/receive push notifications from.

 

Wish Google would bake that into to AOSP, it's the worst side of the open system philosophy. Give developers free reign to build features into their apps, sure, but they don't give users any option to shut those apps and their respective background services down except uninstalling. Chinese OEMs are pretty good at fixing that, better solution than the Doze bandaid.

What's the cpu time on Android system and Google services?
My battery list looks similar but I only dropped 20% over 6 hours yesterday. 1 hour sot, 4g on.

Ended up resetting my phone. Will report back tomorrow. If that doesn't solve it it's going back and I will give the LG V20 a go.

lol
your battery is going flat
because of some of the apps
you've put on your
phone. how about you try and
go through them and see which ones
Ones are actually keeping your
phone on. How about instead
of taking it back straight away
You spend some time and
find out what's causing it to
stay on and do something
about it it took me about a
week to get mine all sorted.

Click the battery button in
settings, then the battery
usage details at the top right,
then click the little blue I and
have a look at whats using
how much power and when.
It's pretty comprehensive.

I can use wazes or Google
Maps for driving for about
2 hours per day. I also do
about 4 hrs of games or
web browsing and I still have
50% left at the end of the day

Something is wrong with the
apps you have installed

V20 battery life is going to be significantly worse than the Mate 9, unless you're planning to carry spare batteries around.
