Might try that it's very annoying left overnight it was at 39 just checked and its now 15. No apps running, even turned WiFi off. Something not right here. Very sad as otherwise it's briliant.
Hi, was having exactly the same issue with my R5 as well. Did a factory reset and carefully repeated all the set up steps I'd previously done - including the Google services permissions. For me; turns out the culprit was the Night Light setting - when it's set to 'Turns on from sunset to sunrise' it prevents the R5 from going to sleep (power button flashes blue) and drains the battery. I've set it to a custom time, the device now sleeps correctly and the battery drain has gone.

Hope this might help.

Doesn't show up in battery usage but then it's not showing anything correctly in their either. It has full permissions as recommended by Hiby on latest firmware. I've uninstalled a few apps to see if one of those is the culprit. If still the same will drop Hiby a line to ask them. Dont want reset device just yet.
i turned off location services since r5 doesn't have a gps

Well I have done a factory reset and only installed essential music apps. Its only lost a few % in last 3 hours. So something was off before or one of the apps was causing it.

That's the downside to Android. Sometimes apps get stuck in loops and drain the battery. I find it's often the media scan built into Android.

Location works on WiFi to not just GPS so it's still works.

Mines just set at low. none of my headphones are particular sensitive or hard to drive so have no issues with Volume or hiss.

Hi, I would like to know the procedure that you have done when returning your Hiby R5 to Hong Kong.

My R5 was having temperature issues and it gets hot while playing with Tidal (WiFi) and 4.4mm Balanced out simultaneously. Because of it, the battery swell and the back plate was detached from the body.

Also, I'm experiencing Bluetooth and WiFi connection drop-outs.

Hiby asked me to fill-out the RMA which I did, but did not receive any response from them. Did you received an e-mail from them first before sending your device back?
The back of mine popped off as well.

I am finding that my battery is not lasting even if I don't use the R5. Left it overnight and it's lost half its power and it was doing nothing. Everybody else's ok?
Make sure you disable wi-fi and BT.

Sorry- thought you reported unhappiness due to your battery draining overnight. I was simply suggesting things that may increase battery life.

Why on earth would I want to do that. I use streaming more than local files. I tried it and made no difference it still drained. Anyway a factory reset fixed it. Lasted for two days and still going.

If you connect the mojo to the R5 don't expect bit perfect playback to it. Android does not work well with external DACs, the apps require modifying to deal with it. UAPP is fine, Tidal and Qobuz will just output at the DACs highest rate and not switch dependant on source. Tried it with my DragonFly as a test and everything outputs at 96/24 to it regardless of source.
I use Tidal in my R5 connected to Mojo - do you mean I don't get bit perfect for the HiFi subscription I have?
I understood R5 introduces the direct audio output to avoid Android problems; is Tidal using this output or HiBy app is the only one to get benefit of this?
