Steps to Reset your OnePlus One Battery

  • Goto Settings, scroll down and touch the Privacy setting
  • Now touch the “Privacy Guard” setting
  • Scroll down and make sure none of the applications have privacy guard enabled (You may touch the reset icon in the top right to reset completely in one shot)
  • Now let the battery drain completely (You may play a video, audio or anything that consumes a lot of battery)
  • Once battery completely drained, phone will completely turnoff
  • Now connect your OnePlus one original charger and let it to fully charge (Do not turn on until fully charged and you see the green battery status image)
  • Once you see the fully charged image (If you’re not seeing image, a single press on power button will show the charge status i.e battery image filled with green color)
  • Now you may turn the phone On by pressing the power button (until you get a small vibration)
  • That’s it, you’re done

Before these steps my battery was discharging quite fast and didn’t last more than 8 hours even after a full charge. After performing above steps, my battery life improved significantly with 1 day 3+ hours and still had 39% battery left before I started charging again.
