Today I have the scare of my life when I reliased that my Oppo R7s cannot turn on after battery run out. Panic and worry for 2 hours looking for solution. Well, eventually it back to normal again of cause.
What happened was I have the habit of not charging the phone although it start to flash reminder of 20% left, follow by 10% and finally 5%. The old fashion brain still believe I should fully drain the battery before I plug it to USB cable.
For this 2mths old Oppo, my previous experience was once it drain and force turn off. The phone will display a low bar sign on screen with notice said battery TOO low. Wait before turn on.
However, this afternoon when I connected it to the cable. Nothing happen. YES. NOTHING !! Like the phone is a plastic or wood. Since the battery is in build to the phone body, I am not able to execute my normal action on the old Samsung Galaxy -> Removed the back cover and pull out the battery then put back.
What I can do then was left the phone in charging position at the same time surf the Oppo Community forum. Surprise Surprise..... there were a few discussion on this strange situation and a few different models being mentioned too.
Experts comment was continue charging it. Later Press this button together with that buttons. Removed battery and their final comment was bring to service centre if all fail.
Of cos I already did all these press, shake, knock, throw, left inside rice container etc etc.
What to do, look for the box and receipt. All ready to ship back to the place I bought the phone (which is 8hrs away by air)
Just as all this in progress, I casually pressed the ON button (the phone still in charging condition) and just like always the screen blink and there go my OPPO word appeared and in few sec time... the phone is back to me. Piu......
My comment about this scary encounter => OPPO know the phones have this problem and they have to come out with a solution yet.
