Increasing the battery life in reality

After switching from Samsung 3200 mAH battery i found the XZU battery disappointing. I thought it was due to the huge screen size. but, there is a tweak that changed my perception to a gr8 extent. Others can try it as well because it's safe to do so.

Head into Settings > Developer options and turn off Windows animation scale, Transition animation scale, and Animator duration scale.


Feel the difference afterwards.

Apart from this use stamina mode frequently (There is no harm keeping it on). It's a pretty cool feature by SONY and i thank them for that Slightly smiling Face

Else, you can install some good task killer and avoid keeping screen to the max bright levels. It will drastically improve your experience. Anyway, it'll differ from user to user so it can't be 100% same for everyone.


It's a brillian device and i feel happy to have switched from the samsung era to XZU ;-)
