    The battery don’t last longer than half a day. I am living in a very warm country so this might also influence. When I look at the usage of apps I notice that the system apps use so much energy. What to do with this?

      Hello, Rene. Disable them manually from Settings or use Greenify to complement that. I have a P8 Lite 2017, and struggle with the same battery issue. Sometimes, I have to charge the mobile phone twice a day. What a pity. However, I would suggest you looking for a new mobile phone which may share similar characteristics but a better battery performance. Bye.
