Has anyone else had severe battery drain with the new update (ones including new headset controls)? I've had to revert to the release before as when listening to radio my battery only lasted 3 hours and the phone was permanently hot

Yes, I can confirm that last weeks (19th) Update is broken in this regard, Mi One is very hot all the time, and burns battery. I could not see anything suspicious in the shell. Anyone tried the 26th update? Anyone filed a bug report. I would do, but basically I have no information except it is broken.

i still believe its caused by the headset app as i can't calibrate the headphones i'm using maybe its not allowing the app to shutdown.an option in the headset controls to choose what type of headphones your using i.e with or without buttons would be a nice idea

I'm on 3.8.16 and the battery life is now terrible! I use my phone for listening to music for maybe 1-2 hours a day. This morning, it went from 100% down to 75% with <1 hour on wifi web browsing!

Problem is I can't remember which version I was on before so don't know what to downgrade to :(

My battery has been much better today. No idea why, as just yesterday it was terrible. Yesterday I noted from the battery usage stats that 'Android OS' was the biggest drain on the battery, followed by the screen. Today, Android OS isn't using nearly as much (<10% as opposed to yesterday's 40-50%).

You seem to think the drain is down to the new headset controls feature. Does this problem only occur when you have headphones plugged in? That may be why my battery isn't getting run down so much today as my headphones have only been plugged in for 30 mins or so...

If I have further problems I'll have to downgrade. Thanks for letting me know what version pre-dates the problem!

i used mine at the weekend without headphones android os was normal then at work with headphones on it went flat in a couple of hours and android os was way up 3 times higher than screen so its either the headphone control app or the radio app and the radio apps been the same for ages so i doubt its that.
