Re: xperia XA: massive battery drain

All the things we can do are given in the 'solution' of this thread. Though the update brings and upgrade I am still not satisfied from my heart. And please do not expect a big improvement, and If you know a bit about flashing ftf, then you can can use xperifirm (software available on xda for free) to get the latest .105 ftf and flash it using flash tool. IF NOT then leave it and wait. @JazAmora909 you can try it if update takes too long. I did it on my old M4 aqua as Sony decided not to send updates on time to India...

Just two words to Sony: Recall, refund.

No, you're not alone. 
I have to always turn on Stamina to save battery.

Re: xperia XA: massive battery drain

Stamina mode controls all background running apps, So that only we are getting more standby..

However Sony desinged one awesome looking phone with poor battery performance.. So lets stop talking in this forum friends.. Upto my knowledge, there will be no more update to save our battery life.. 

 

Finally sony missed the chance to get more fans with X series.. Slightly smiling Face

no , you can see Galaxy J5 Prime with battery like XA with low battery usage in standby or other devices with aprx same battery and specs , So , standby heavy battery drain should solve by Sony , you can see battery usagein settings to see heavy idle standby battery usage , So software should fix this annoying problem

Re: xperia XA: massive battery drain

It is off topic but I could not resist.

Is anyone having XA facing difficulties in dropping down the notification bar. Like many times ( for me almost 90%) I just end up 'search application' when I swipe with any of my fingers except my thumb. Even when using my thumb the success rate is just 60%. It is very irritating. I have a tempered glass though. Maybe.. .
