How To Fix Xiaomi Pocophone F1 Battery Draining Quickly
Problem: Hello, I’ve had the Pocophone for about a week but recently the battery has been draining too quickly, won’t hold a charge, and keeps draining even when it’s plugged in so I can’t use it. I am using the original charger that came with the phone and I also ordered a replacement charger and cord and it’s still doing the same thing. Even if I have my data and location off and I close background apps it doesn’t help. Any tips would be greatly appreciated!
Solution: Before troubleshooting this problem you should make sure that the phone is running on the latest software version. You should also make sure that the apps installed in the device are updated. You can check if any app needs an update by opening the Google Play Store then going to the My Apps section.
