Halved battery life on G7 Power after updating to Android 10

2020-09-14, 18:31 PM

Hello,

 

After updating to Android 10 on my Moto G7 Power, the time my phone lasts for on battery seems to have halved, from lasting roughly 5 days to just over 2.

 

Looking at the "Battery usage since full charge" in the Android settings, since the update there is an app labeled "-5" that has used a higher percentage of my battery life more than most apps (or more if I haven't used my phone much). Android cannot tell how long it has ran (While in active use: Used for 0 mins).

 

When dialing the phone information code *#*#4636#*#*, the only app that's in constant use (with the last used time always being the time I opened the phone information screen) is the Moto App Launcher, with a fairly high usage time. I don't use the Moto App Launcher, but instead use the Microsoft Launcher.

 

I have not recently installed any other apps, and that "-5" app never appeared before the update. I have restarted the phone with no change. Turning off mobile data seems to stop the drain happening, but I'd rather keep it on like I was able to before the update.

Solved! See the solution

The "-5" is, I believe, when you have set up a hotspot.

Your new OS may need time to bed in. Android 10 does have a lot to tweak including battery options.
I would only be concerned if after a week or two it seems to be draining faster than it did before.

My G7 Power updated to A10 five days ago - as the update insisted I connect to charger, I did so it had a full charge by the time the update finished.
Not needed to charge it since then and it's showing 50% with 5 hrs 10 mins SOT.

This helped me too

Thank you. I'll leave it for a bit then.
