Despite the DASH Charge, there is just a 3,000mAh battery onboard which fuels a 5.5-inch FHD display powered by a Snapdragon 820 processor, making it difficult to get much of the battery saved after charging. There is a custom Doze mode for battery saving but that only works when the smartphone is in sleep mode. However, if you are looking to get a more intense battery saving time on the OnePlus 3, then these kernel tweaks on XDA Forum could come in very handy. It could help prolong your phone’s battery life consistently, getting you up to roughly 7 to 8 hours of screen-on time on the OnePlus flagship.
