Battery Desaster with Android 9

Before the update battery lasts for almost 2 days, now less than 8 hours!
How can I get rid of android9?


  • I read about bad battery lifetimes with Pie in different online magazines. You can try to start power safe option with 75% for example - that way it should last much longer.

    I never tried to downgrade an Android phone. It could be risky. For example, if a firmware of a hardware component was updated during Pie update, which is not longer compatible with Android 8.1 :neutral:

    But I think we all have to wait until Google fixes this problem in Pie... :disappointed:
  • Often the battery routines take a few days to learn (again).
    Sometimes a factory reset will clear hanging caches that cause the trouble.
    Generally, I am disappointed by Android Pie on Nokia8. My phone also lasts shorter (not a day) than before (usually 40% left in the evening)
  • I haven't seen any major changes for the better or worse with Pie as far as battery life is concerned.

    I wonder if in original poster's case the battery usage statistics show any particular application being a significant battery hog (maybe some application doesn't work well with Pie for some reason?), or if it's pretty even?
  • For me battery lifetime at Pie seems to be the same as before.
    You could try a hard reset in order to check, if buggy configuraion/update causes your problems.
  • To original poster, try running Optimisation.
    Mine seemed worse to start with as well (may have just needed time) but I went to Optimisation through Battery and optimised any apps that weren't and it is now back to normal. I get through a day easily without any issues.
    Optimisation isn't available for some apps and some seem to ignore the optimise request.

    I have the Impression, that battery life is better since Pie  :)
  • After the update there were no statistics about app usage of battery.
    That changes after a restart and loading battery to 100%
    Now battery life get's better from day to day although I didn't change anything in configuration 
    Seems strange to me but the result is fine
    Thanks for the comments and trying to help

    Here's something for giggles:

  • I have found a way to downgrade my Nokia 6 2017 from android Pie 9 back to Oreo 8.1.
    Here is a link:
    You will need to download your Nokia X, december 2017 update and 8.1 firmware. Everything is explained in the video.

    My Nokia 8 had a battery life of 1,5 h from full charge. Did all the tricks in the "mannual" and now the battery life time is 4 hrs.
    Hope an improvement to be done by those who own the situation.

    Ps. Battery lifetime shows now 6 hrs. Something is gradually happening?
  • Battery is perfect. It makes around 8 to 9 h SoT on WiFi.

    povedal Shri :
    Môj Nokia 6 2017 beží na apríli aktualizáciu má problém prehriatia pri nabíjaní. To sa stalo v marci 2019 aktualizáciu a myšlienka bude vyriešený v apríli aktualizáciu, ale tento problém je vážne zvyšuje a tiež dostať varovanie pred ohrevom batérie pri nabíjaní. Je to sakramentsky vážne mobilný vyhrievaný ako železo box. 😠😠😠
    I have no problem with this on my Nokia 6.
