Battery Draining - Nokia 7.1

Hey there, recently I am having big battery draining.

If I am going to sleep I keep my phone powered on. (Monitor off of course)
The last few weeks (3 weeks) my phone has been draining battery for nothing!
When I check the battery management to see what uses the most it only comes up with a few things like Twitter I used the evening before.
That would lose 3%, and the monitor itself says 2% or something.
But when I wake up I only have +/- 70% left? While it was charged 100% before sleeping, with the original Nokia charger.

Would like to know if anyone of you guys also have this problem.
I am using the newest Android 9.0.

Already contacted Nokia support, they are giving me various options to try, wont really work.....

:disappointed:

    Hello 

    One 3rd party app you can try is gsam battery monitor to help see what is using the battery.  You can also try putting phone in safe mode when you go to bed and see what battery discharge is happening overnight.

    Hello

    Battery draining can happen bc of apps .  Use safe mode to verify if it's an app.  Please post your battery chart here so some can look and help.

    I did a factory reset, that helped kind of great, I should advise you to try that.
    It won't fully fix, I believe the battery was better before, but it can last a full day!

    Probably going to return the phone soon if it keeps bugging me.

    The Nokia 7.1 for me lasts all day with average sot of 5 hrs and 38 mins.  Plus it charges so fast it can be topped off quickly.  This phone does not have issues with excessive battery drain.  The battery usage is really dependant on you screen brightness and time with screen on, the apps you run, and of course the quality of your network/wifi signal.

    I would highly recommend this phone and the battery is average in size and performs well based on that capacity.

    Regards

    I do recommend the phone as well, I am very happy with it, great design, good performance, and the best price out there.
    But this battery issue is bugging me.
    But there probably is a fix, and I just might need to return it to the store and get it repaired/a new one.

    I have the exact same problem as the OP. Before a week i had 30+ hours of battery live, 5+ screen on time and still left with 30-35% battery.
    Now i barely have 26 hours with the phone ready to shut down. I am monitoring all the apps that are using the battery and it is all like usual and nothing looks to drain it more than it should. I have even uninstalled few new apps that should not have anything to do with the drain but just in case because they where new. 
    At this point I cannot identify the cause of the drain. I hope it will be fixed with the March security patch/maintenance patch.

    Hello

    I would look closely at your battery discharge, a good app to use is GSam battery monitor.   The apps or combination of apps you have can  act as you describe and be ok one week and change the next.   Can you post some screenshots of the battery stats.

    Regards

    I will do that soon, but you can just see YouTube 14%, Instagram 1%, Chrome 1%, and thats it. And then it takes up 30%

    although after the factory reset, it performs a bit better tho

    Hello

    Your screen was on for 1 hour and 26 mins I do not see anything unusual with 10-12 % battery discharge. A full days usage after 100percent charge over a couple of days comparison would be better data set to look bc a small couple.hour snapshot is not indicative of battery usage.

    Regards

    Jason 
  • Same problem here 

    My phone dose not chsrge properly and full night i charged my phone but it charge only 60 to 70 percent

    Hello

    Your phone not charging past 60-70 percent is a different issue.   Have you tried a different cord or charger.  Or plug it into a different outlet.

    Hello

    I would install an app called GSam Battery Monitor and this will give you better information on how the battery is being depleted.  Have you contacted support on the my phone app?

    I don't think it's the update but probably an app causing the issue.  Have you backed up your data and done a factory reset?

    Thanks

    Not sure what you mean by on hold mute problem?  You control your battery usage not sure what issue you are describing what is your issues in more detail.

    I got mine a little over 3 months ago and from the day I got it I've felt like my battery's draining way too fast.
    Today I watched YouTube with BT enabled and connected to a speaker for an hour and 10 minutes with the brightness at around half, but it still managed to eat up 21% of my battery.
    Overall I used 50% of my battery in 9 hours, of which the screen was on for 3 hours.
  • I think the Nokia batteries are muck. As general rule to increase battery life. Is you charge from 20% to 80% . And once a month let I drop to say 10% and charge too 100%.
