I am running LOS in my Fairphone 2, without any of google apps nor open gapps. I have realized that the battery drains quite fast when watching videos, and the phone gets quite hot too. I’d say it gets hot next to the camera approximately.
I watched a 1 hour video and the battery went down from 100% to 70% approximately. Do you think this is normal?
If it’s a high quality video, streamed from the internet and watched at full brightness I’d say it’s impressive that it didn’t drain more.
If its a low quality video watched at low brightness from a file on the internal storage - with no background activities going on - then it might be a bit more drain than expected.
It was actually a YouTube video (I do not like using this kind of service, because of privacy concerns and other reasons, but I was really interested in the video). I am not sure about the quality, but for sure I was not using full brightness, more like half of the bar.
I have this problem, too. I am using FP Open OS and since a year or so my phone gets very hot during streams and videos. The battery drain is also very high, sometimes even the charger struggles to charge the phone during those activities.
I still hope that whatever caused this behaviour in some update will get fixed some day.
