Hi everyone, I'm a complete newbie from the "dark side of the Iphone" camp. Can anyone help? I'm on my THIRD Z3 from EE due to overheating issues and battery life not being what it's claiming to be. Baring in mind that these are brand new phones, straight out of the box I am not installing any apps, just testing on the AR Fun on the camera and taking pictures (this is the prime offender). I love this phone, but at the moment it's a massive downgrade from the Iphone 5 and that battery was useless! I know there are a few posts showing using PC companion but I can't see that this would show any issues as there's nothing on the actual phones. It is running 5.0.2 apparently....

Battery drain will settle after a few days of usage, and for overheating: AR is a heavy app for resources, it uses the processer, GPU, RAM, and camera module at the same time and it's normal to get the phone warm, and even hot, when using AR for more than a couple of minutes.

thank you for putting my mind at rest. I was worried I was being too hard on the battery life by expecting too much. I will stick with it as I love it. Thanks again.

Same on my Xperia ZR. Found a solution with third-party app and giving admin privilegies, but I dont want to use it. Prefer to stay with clear OS.
Hey, Sony! What is going on?
