New Battery Usage screen sucks

(Topic created on: 11-11-2019 07:40 PM)

I've posted and commented on this before but the new battery usage screen really sucks. It's the kind of bad that makes me want to leave this OS behind.


Please add a like to the suggestion I'll link here so we can try and get some better information back, like we had with Android 9:


I've attached screenshots of why it sucks.

Shows that I have 5 hours screen on time. But actually, ~1.5 hours of that are before I went to bed and charged, and whilst charging. That's totally misrepresenting what users have known that sceeen on time measure to be since the dawn of screen on time measures. 

It's highly deceptive. 


Adding up, I've had 3 hours 37 minutes of usage since last full charge with 8% left (6% now after I finish this post).


Who cares how much screen on time they've had since midnight even after charging and topping it up a few times? I certainly don't.

I agree to 100%. The older version in OneUI 1.0 had a much better overview of what you want to know - how long your battery survived after the last charge and how long it will last. Now it looks like a superfluous Excel table (I would wonder if anybody would use those 2-hr sections...), but the essential information is missing!..


Also, the usage diagramm is now so bleak, in contrast to the nicely looking one in UI 1.0.
