Re: "Phone Idle" battery drain in 7.0 Nougat

That's what i was planning to do, too many issues with the firmware on here. Can i ask which was the latest reliable MM firmware? 

 

My wife's Z2 running MM runs rings around my Z5, 

 

Other issues. . .

 

Smart watch keeps disconnecting, Bluetooth keeps switching off, video and other content keeps failing to load in browsers until i reset the phone, longer to get to mini apps, battery lasts around 12 hrs, 

 

Advantages of upgrade, ER???

Re: "Phone Idle" battery drain in 7.0 Nougat

Re vanilla, it means using the phone as it was out the box, factory reset but repaired via Sony companion.

 

A fresh install, but then put nothing on the phone.

 

(My issue with that is it will cause any phone to last longer! It won't be doing as much. )

Hi,

 

I just searched for the

Downloaded by a Mega link and flashed by Xperia FlashTool. 

 

It worked fine.

Re: "Phone Idle" battery drain in 7.0 Nougat

Great news for rooted users. But it's like bringing you're car to the repairer and tell him how to fix it. Kind of...

A little worse, I've rooted on other devices but I know if I do of at least one banking app that won't run.

 

At least someone's telling Sony how to fix it!!

I hope someone from Sony Mobile has seen this and notifies the developers about the miscalibration of the values about Virtual Memory and they release an update to fix it. Come on Sony! What the heck?!

Re: "Phone Idle" battery drain in 7.0 Nougat

I'm still having the same problem and the contact support aren't very helpful and keep telling me to use safe mode and Xperia Companion over and over. It's a shame cause my Z5 was working perfectly well before the update and literally one day after the update can't survive a whole day 12 hours is its max life. Congratulations guys been like this for 3 months and still no update. Definitely will be moving on to another provider :/
