WhatsApp quickly discharges the batteries of OnePlus, Samsung, Xiaomi and Google smartphones
More and more owners of Android smartphones complain that they encountered abnormally fast battery drain and the new version of the WhatsApp application is guilty of this. This issue is being actively discussed on the Reddit forum and owners of OnePlus 6, Samsung Galaxy S9, Galaxy S10e, Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro, Pixel 3 and Pixel 4 complained about strange device behavior.
So, one of the owners of last year’s flagship OnePlus reported that after the WhatsApp update, the smartphone notifies that the application worked for 1.5 hours, while in fact the user opened it only for a minute.
The owner of Redmi Note 5 Pro noticed that when the messenger was running in the background, the battery charge drained from 74% to 19%. There are those who noticed the pattern that WhatsApp consumes 30% of all the energy consumed by the smartphone, provided that they could use the messenger for a short time.
It is assumed that for the battery, it’s worth “thank” WhatsApp version 2.19.325. So, a number of users claim that, having backed up the application data, they deleted the update and installed the old version 2.19.291. As a result, it was possible to solve the problem with fast battery discharge. Someone was helped by manipulations with the reloading of version 2.19.325.
A more radical solution is to remove WhatsApp and switch to work with other instant messengers.
