Re: xperia XA: massive battery drain

To Explain. Consider this ⤵️

If earlier the battery lasted 100mins

⭕ - > now After the update it lasts 104 mins.

But listen I haven't got much time to observe. So..

@JazAmora909

Do you now want me to post here my photo with my phone as well as its bill. How can you even think that I don't own the phone.

And as far as the update is concerned. I really do not observe any improvement. (just one thing - the battery now drains less when not in use)

One more thing. I peacefully ask you, DO YOU USE UC BROWSER, Because I use it and it is known to drain a lot of battery. So that may be the reason.

Re: xperia XA: massive battery drain

@JazAmora909 Do you consider 2-2.5 hs SOT excellent battery time when phone is used for around 14 hs from 100% to 1%??? This phone is claimed with high battery life and a lot of us charge it twice per day!!!

Re: xperia XA: massive battery drain

And let me tell you, I and my family members have always trusted Sony (used xm, xl, xm2, xm4, xm5, xt2, xc4, xz5) though I never got to use the z5 or the M5.

But this time It is well below expectations.

And can you tell me your complete usage pattern.

My 1% battery even after the update lasts 4 mins when just browsing on 3G in lest brightness.

Re: xperia XA: massive battery drain

Though let me make it clear, I have updated my phone just 1 day back so to say anything solid is difficult. It may be more than 104.

Re: xperia XA: massive battery drain

I've updated my F3111 3 days ago and 33.2.A.3.74 really improved battery. There isn't huge difference but now I'm satisfied with my phone. I used to get 100% to 5% with 3h screen time and 12h total. But now, after almost the same usage, I got 35% left. Phone now lasts more than 16h and I think this is an improvement. 

I'm not saying with this update eveyone will be happy and you will stop checking this thread but this is an improvement guys. And with 7.0, battery will probably improve little bit more too. But you need to understand that there is no way to get you 2 days battery life. But you will stop charging it in the middle of the day.

If earlier the battery lasted 100mins, now it lasts 135 mins. 

 

Btw I haven't experienced any error related to SD card.

 

Just multiply the stats with 4.

Re: xperia XA: massive battery drain

It depends on the usage. My point is "battery improved". I was getting 12h before the update, now 16h. Someone who use the phone more than me and gets 6h, with update probably get 8h or something like that. Same way someone who gets 24h, now will get 32h. There is a person who gets 6h screen time and I have no idea how s/he doing that. I said that this update doesn't make everyone happy but it is a sign that Sony working on this issue. Weeks ago I was losing 85% battery with 45m screen time in 6 hours. But now I can get 16h. Obviously you use your phone more than me or maybe something physically wrong with your phone. But this update improved my battery life and that is all I can say.

Re: xperia XA: massive battery drain

Okay fine. But tell me what you do with your phone. I think browsing on 3g and little bit gaming like coc and dead trigger 2 (for 30mins) cannot discharge 39% battery in 2h 54 mins
