As far as I know the update is available now. Although somewhere on here there is a message from Sony Xperia Support part of which says 'Note that software rollouts are a phased process-timings, & availability may vary by market/carrier' Whether this includes updates as well I'm not sure. (I'm with EE)
Since I installed the update, the phone has been charged once and is still in the condition mentioned above. It is now 90 hours since the charge and the phone is showing 40% battery-life left. Let's hope it continues.
I agree about the Z3 I had a compact and if used very sparingly the battery could last up to 2 weeks.
Surely Sony must have known about this 'fault' so why was the phone released in the first place, and why has it taken so long for a 'fix' to be provided.

I had same experience as you guys for the past 4 days. Got my XA Ultra last Saturday 12/03/16 and the battery is really draining fast even if I'm just navigating through my app drawer and Settings. What i did is to turn on the Show CPU Usage under the Developer Options in the Settings menu to find out the apps using the CPU. Apps will show up on the upper right corner of your screen . Found out about this app called COM. SONYMOBILE. INTELLIGENT. IENGINE frequently using the cpu. Tried turning on and off some settings and it seems like it's something to do with the Smart Brightness Control under the Display Setting so i turned that option off. It worked, though sometimes it's still showing up but not that often anymore. So the next step i did is to go back to the Develooer Options and turned on the Don't Keep Activities. Next, on the Background Process Limit, i changed it to No Background Processes from Standard. Doing these steps made my battery perfomance better than the last 4 days of having my XA Ultra. Hope this would also help you guys as well.
