I think there is improvement Slightly smiling Face
Updated yesterday and today at 9:00am it was 100% charged...on wifi most of the time and for 2hours on mobile data 3G. Screentime around 5h20 min which includes watching few episodes. Few texts on whatsapp whole day. Used instagram for a while and checked Facebook and mails too. 5-6 calls amd now its 16%.. Not bad Slightly smiling Face

I charge 100% the phone, 16 hours of use and stand by , 2.32 hours SOT, used with games and Internet and Instagram, some calls and whatsapp. The news is that you can rotate the screen interface like a tablet, a new sound when you conect the usb AC Adapter, and other things... But the battery improvement it is evident.

Install the latest updates for the f3111. Prior to this, the battery until the end of the evening did not like not survive. I had to charge 2 times a day. Plugged been charged pretty fast. Now, after installing the latest updates. The battery discharges faster and dabavok from city began charging the phone longer at times. Well, it's really sad. We had to take z3 compact.

Re: xperia XA: massive battery drain

Hi XA users, I've received 788.4MB update for build # 33.2.B.3.74.

Does this bring any improvement in the battery life? It's not worth updating if battery problem persists as all the internal memory will now be eventually used up with this update. I'm on .93. Please share your experiences with this new update.

Many thanks.
