I read, here and over, that also on elephone s8, the battery is not good, not enough...
It's a strange situation, because the HORRIBLE previuos experience with s7 let us imagine in a better solution...

Eith Elephone it's all possible: battery superdrain, mega heat, bug,  ...

You know what they say, right?

"Keep expecting...." --> you keep expecting that the next model will have corrected the problems of the former model
"...and be surprised!" --->  you are surprised that it's not ;-)

or:

you keep expecting that super-cheap devices will be like the high-priced ones...
...and you are surprised that a cheap device is still cheap!

IMO, the battery is not bad, the battery management is.
7 hours to charge a 4000mah... is a nonsense even if the charging rate is about 0.25C should take only 4 hours...
But bigger issue, my phone when charging at night, stops charging at 70%. I tried various cables and various chargers. Do you have the same issue?
Many thanks.

new batteries need calibration. charge it full 100% and leave it for at least an additional hour on the charging cable.

May be you can reduce the battery drain if you switch off the led notification!

First time I charged it to 100% overnight so it was on the charger long enough after it reached 100%.
Now it's very random: one night it charges up to 70% and then stops, another night it charges to mid 80% and then stops and sometimes it charges to 100%.
When it stops before 100% it shows a weird gap in the battery graph. Like the phone wasn't able to measure the battery.

HMMMMMMM ? what which led notification, did i miss something here ? or is it only mine there is without notification led ? this is funny
My battery is fine ,, not supreme but fine for a day and half, with around 3-4 hours sot, but I'm not a heavy user,, if it was a phone for heavy gaming I would have looked for something verified good, and spend a couple of hundreds more..
