How To Fix The Huawei P20 Pro Battery Drains Quickly

Problem: As is typical, P20 Pro (only a few months old) had awesome battery usage and very slow drain time…. until this most recent update last weekend! Now it’s draining as fast as my old phone did after 3 years! I turn off my wifi when not in use, along with location and bluetooth. I also keep my brightness mode at the lowest setting that would still allow decent screen viewing. I also utilize my device maintenance tool regularly to enhance my battery usage and close/ sleep all apps that aren’t currently needed. Any way to get my good battery performance back again or uninstall this most recent update?

Solution: If the battery drain problem occured right after a software update then this is most likely caused by a software glitch. Follow the troubleshooting steps listed below to fix the problem.

Update your phone apps

Your phone might be running on outdated apps which are not working efficiently with the new software version. There might be apps that are constantly making the processor of the phone work even when it is not needed thus causing the battery drain problem.
