The features of the phone for the price that it had made it one of the best flagship devices of 2016. Then came the OnePlus 3T in December. Well, the company might be proud of its Dash Charging, but users were reporting that the OnePlus 3’s battery drains much faster than it actually should. So, if you are one of those guys experiencing this issue, the developers at XDA have found a solution that requires just a little Kernel Tweak, and you can get up to 8 Hours of Screen on Time which is awesome for sure.
