Re: Battery life bad.

agreed.
It's been almost 48 hours since I turned off ambient display.

I'm not really timing but it feels the battery last almost 1 day more than before.

Re: Battery life bad.

I turned off Ambient Display (was using Smart activation) and the battery life drastically increased. I'm guessing it's because of the sensors (to detect movement, picking up the phone, and pocket) that's draining the battery.  Hoping any moderators will take notice, and report this to Sony; in which they'll improve this. I'd love to turn on ambient display, but I get a lower SoT. (3-4 hours) compared to it being off (5-6).

Re: Battery life bad.

Just to clarify, 

My issues started AFTER the pie update.

Also, I can't pick up calls anymore.

Top notch update
