@DuCox

This is what Sony has about Stamina mode:

 

Battery STAMINA Mode has been replaced with Google’s Doze and App Standby?

Battery STAMINA Mode provides a smart solution for managing power consumption, as does the combination of Doze and App Standby - so you can still enjoy using your device for longer with optimised battery life.

Doze intelligently regulates power consumption when the device is in standby, when the screen is off. App Standby further improves battery life by reducing the activity and data access of apps running in the background.

Because of the similarities - and as Doze and App Standby are integrated directly into Android 6.0 - we decided to remove Battery STAMINA Mode in this particular upgrade to ensure users can enjoy the same experience, without compromising on memory or processing power.

 

Is this the end for Sony’s Battery STAMINA Mode?

We can’t comment on the future of Battery STAMINA Mode, but as we know battery life is one of the major user smartphone pain points, we continue to develop bleeding-edge power consumption and saving solutions.

Re: Android Marshmallow (Android 6.0) new features

I hope doze includes features of turning off certain app when phone is on standby just like it was with stamina mode and also hope that they bring it back one day as it was the best battery manager on any smartphone (To my experience anyway. Thanks for providing this information. Slightly smiling Face
