The OnePlus 3 comes with a non-removable 3,000mAh battery – which is smaller than the power pack found in both the OnePlus 2 (3,300mAh) and the OnePlus One (3,100mAh). Charging is impressively quick, and very useful – but only to a point. The OnePlus 7 still manages “a day’s power in half an hour” – but only just. Battery life… We performed our endurance tests in the display's 90Hz mode and in the standard 60Hz mode, just in case the 90Hz did have a significant impact on the battery endurance. The desire for better smartphone battery life is in a constant tug-of-war with demands for superior hardware. OnePlus claims you'll be able to watch over seven hours of 2K video on a single charge, with screen brightness set to medium. The added screen size and increased refresh rate may certainly impact battery results over the OP 7.

Even with moderate use, most days I found myself switching on the Battery Saver as I hit 15% come early evening. I ran the 90-minute, full HD TechRadar video test on the OnePlus 3, with screen brightness at max and the handset connected to Wi-Fi, with accounts syncing in the background. A smart move or a stupid one? The OnePlus 6 comes with a 3,300mAh battery, which is the same size as the power packs found in the 5 and 5T. After the hour and a half was up the battery level had dropped from 100% to 77% – a loss of 23% isn't the best result we've seen, but it's also not terrible.

While the likes of Samsung, Sony and co like to claim their devices will give you up to two days of use, thanks to varying levels of power-saving modes ranging from mild to aggressive, OnePlus isn't been drawn into that fight. OnePlus has also reduced the amount of heat generated in the device during charging by shifting the main power regulator to the plug block. © I like having a charger at home, one at work, another in the car and a fourth in my rucksack – in my case that's three additional Dash chargers I need to purchase, and the cost quickly stacks up. That ace? New York, OnePlus has opted for a thinner, more premium design at the cost of a smaller power pack, and while everyone may not agree with that strategy it doesn't put the handset at a particular disadvantage compared to its rivals. General usage included a couple of hours of Spotify streaming, around an hour of gaming, and various messages, social network usage, email purging and web browsing throughout the day. While it's disappointing that the OnePlus 3 can't go more than a day on a full charge, it is par for the course at the moment, with most of the top flagships in exactly the same position. How good is the battery life on the OnePlus 8? That allowed me to stay connected from 7am, when I took the OnePlus 3 off charge, until around 11pm, with the Battery Saver mode just about enabling the phone to limp back to my bedside table and the salvation of the charging cable. I'll leave you to decide, but OnePlus is confident that it has an ace up its sleeve which makes everything okay.
