    Hate to bump an old thread, but I need to voice my opinion on this update; the battery life tanked hard. It has come to a point where I can barely scrape by a day, and it's getting frustrating.

    Battery life is great on mine. I use it almost every day as a daily driver right now.
    Based on that, I would tend to think it's something else using up too much cpu, or maybe the radio is constantly trying to find a signal sometimes, maybe try clearing the app cache and the cache partition, or for something extreme try resetting it back to factory default and set up as new device.

    noticing a bit of lag on th ephone and battery draining a bit more than usual. cant seem to figure out why though. used GSAM but still dont know. Will be uninstalling things. Also, anyone having an issue with the most recent swiftkey update? Seems to skip around when swiping instead of just swiping. Oh and when i say lagging, i'll open an app and actually wait seconds or hit home button and wait... not sure why.

    I had this too, but only for a couple of weeks recently. The battery was draining about 2 to 3 times faster than normal under all conditions yet the phone wasn't getting hot enough to be using that much power. I was going to send the phone in for repairs but it fixed itself. I don't know what the issue was. It seems unlikely that a battery would fail then fix itself so I wonder if there's a bug charging it.

    @maverick clear the cache in the main storage settings to potentially help with the lag. I use SwiftKey and don't have any problems with it.

    Yeah did that. I uninstalled it entirely and reinstalled. now it only skips around once in a while but still does it. guess Ill clear the cache again too.

    What version of Google Play Services are you on? I had the worst battery drain from Play Services due to the net scheduler wake lock but since updating Play Services my phone is back to normal. I uninstalled alomost all my apps and it didn't help. Updating Play Services and other Google apps is what helped. I should mention that I'm running the beta version of Play Services, Gboard and the Google app. Gboard is still messed up using the net scheduler wake lock. I've switched to Chrooma keyboard until Google sorts things out with Gboard.

    Google play services is 11.7.46 (440-175121617) and google play services for instant apps (wahtever that is) is 2.4-release-175695148

    I have had poor battery life over the past week or so also. I used to get 2 to 3 days on a charge as I am a light user. I now have to charge the phone up every night. Phone is not hot and I have not updated or installed any new apps in months. What exactly do I need to do with Google Play Services? I haven't updated the program and all of my apps are set for me to update myself. Not automatically.

    @ram1220 I'm pretty sure that the problem with Google Play Services is only on the beta version of Oreo. With regards to your problem you already know the normal things to do such as wiping the cache partition in recovery and clear the main storage cache in the storage settings and then reboot. When you go to battery in the settings what does it show has been using your battery? If you don't find any app or apps that's causing the problem and you do the normal fixes above the only thing left is a factory reset.

    Yea I've already tried the usual things. My phone says that Google Services is using a huge chunk of battery. Even more than the Android operating system itself.

    6% so I guess that might not be too bad. I haven't turned the screen on for more than 15 seconds or so all day. I woke up at 7 am Central time. Battery is down to 65% already. I've been home all day and phone has been on wifi. Great signal so it's not searching. Phone isn't hot. I also have a habit of clearing the apps after I do anything on the phone. Maybe it's just time to start looking at new phones again. Lol. I just thought that what I read above about Google Play might be what my issue is.

    If it comes down to having to RMA it I probably would just buy another phone and keep the A7 as a spare. I don't think it's the battery though since it charges up fully and shows 100% after taking it off the charger. And the phone never gets remotely warm. Like I said it just started doing this about 2 weeks ago.

    google play services is using 8% on mine, android system 11%, android service 10%.... So idont know.

  • maverickmaverick NJPosts: 351 ✭✭✭✭✭

    So what should i actually do then? force stop the play services and reboot phone?

  • maverickmaverick NJPosts: 351 ✭✭✭✭✭

    @westside80 I looked and play services is at 1% but i noticed earlier while viewing facebook or something i dont remember, i saw my phone go from 17% to 16% then almost immediately to 15% then lingered a bit. I guess android is designed so apps run all the time for no reason so its just constantly using power.
