Exactly. There were no breach reports in my account either. I could only see the log ins that I did in the past.

Re: Android Thread: Phones / Apps / Mods

How do we check the battery health percentage on android phones?
I am using Samsung A50 since last 1 year which uses One UI. Can't find this anywhere in battery stats. Please guide.

Re: Rapid decline of Battery power in Asus Max M1?

The battery on my 'Asus Zen M1' is depleting rapidly in last few days. Earlier, easily it used to last until the night. I have NOT installed any apps OR there is no appreciable increase in usage. The phone was bought in Oct 18.

I feel, it should NOT deteriorate at this rate. Is there anything I can do to fix this? Please suggest!

AccuBattery. Install this app and get data. You will get battery health data after a few charge recharge cycles.

  • If you have Magisk, install Advanced Charge Controller module. It will stop charging your phone at 80%. This saves and extends the battery life. (OBVIOUSLY ONLY POSSIBLE ON ROOTED PHONES). Do not mess with the related (charge control) app - my Mi5 has developed strange problems after I started playing with the app that sets parameters for the Charge Controller, like not charging, etc. Just install the module from Magisk and forget it.
  • For your battery depletion problem try GSam battery stats and the related root module, you could also install a wakelock detector. It is usually a single app that suddenly starts misbehaving - you may need to go back to a previous version of the misbehaving app until they release a fix for the battery drain. Let us know how it works out.

Re: Android Thread: Phones / Apps / Mods

One plus 8 launched at 41999 and 8 pro at 54999 in India. Will be available online at amazon and one plus site. Offline at one plus stores and croma. Fantastic pricing considering the US pricing.

Superb pricing. Going for the Ultramarine Blue 12/256 combo immediately! Glad OP is showing the way in disassociating India from the US$ scenario.

Re: Android Thread: Phones / Apps / Mods

The 8 Pro at 54999 is an excellent deal. It offers all the flagship features and even some top of the class ones at almost half the price of the competition from Apple and Samsung. The 8 is going to be a harder sell this year as there is stiff competition from Samsung, Realme, iQoo and soon Xiaomi with the Mi 10 Pro. Even a 7T at a reduced price represents a better value proposition according to me.

Re: Android Thread: Phones / Apps / Mods

8Pro pricing in India is brilliant, considering I got the 7T pro at a similar price and the 8Pro has some additional features like wireless charging, better screen, refresh rate and a better chipset. I prefer the pop up camera of the 7T pro though.

Is the pricing for 256GB?

No plans to upgrade till 2022 though, I just like to keep tabs on the progress made

Sweet pricing! Man, I wish I had waited just a few months. Considering the price here, the pricing in India is just too good.

Does OP assemble their devices in India? Usually, the import tariff was higher out there and so the Indian prices were always high compared to here in US.

I suspect, these high differentials might have to do with Trump slapping higher tariffs on Chinese imports. Any which ways, now the time has come for us to carry stuff from India into US.

Re: Android Thread: Phones / Apps / Mods

The smaller OnePlus 8 is not making any sense with the compromises in camera, no IP68 rating, smaller battery and no wireless charging. For 42K these are big misses. Especially when you see the iPhone SE with A13 chip, IP68 and wireless charging is priced similar.

The Apple will hold higher resale and will have SW updates for 4-5 years.

The 2MP macro camera today is a joke in the 8.

The 8 pro has everything the 75K+ priced phones have at a lower price point and makes it more value than the regular OnePlus 8.

The Pixel4a coming in couple of months will be close to the OnePlus 8 and will easily offer better camera performance and Google OS updates which is where Android currently lags seriously behind Apple.

Just hope that they don't mess up the pricing of Pixel 4a like they did in the case of 3a. Pixel 3a was prices ~400 USD in US but they somehow multiplied that with 100 and priced it ~40k INR in India. If they're able to price Pixel 4a competitively, nothing like it.

The 3a XL is quite good buy at around 35k now. I am torn between 3a XL and OP 7T now. Both would cost the same. Leaning towards the pixel.
