@Karen88 You should try it again in Airplane mode.
It still amazes me why people still blame it on the battery.
It's just a battery. Same li-on technology as for all brands of phones (apart from Samsung :p)
Chances are It's not a battery problem but something that uses too much of the battery.
(my bet is still on the 4G radio.)

Just go and return it, they will repair it under warranty Just got mine after 4 days, battery is fine, they changed MOBO and battery itself. Now the battery holds the whole day at least.

I recenty purchase an xperia XA phone which really dissapoints me with the massive drain battery.
From the first night th battery drained from 51% to 30% (after 6 hours in sleeping mode)!
Cell standby is between 75%-80%!
Please I need a solution to this problem!
I recently purchased an xperia XA phone. Unfortunately I faced massive battery drains from day 1.
Steps taken prior to using the phone
- charge the battery
- connect the phone to Wi-Fi
- download the latest software-updates
Setting up the phone
- insert SIM & SD
- transfer data and settings from previous phone (xperia M2)
- restore apps and data from the cloud
- download the latest app-updates
- cell is completely charged, not used for an hour -> battery drops from 100% to ~85%
- battery above 85%, cell is not used for multiple hours during work -> battery drops to ~60%
- according to the battery monitor main consumption by display and Wi-Fi
At the end of the day the battery never lasts for at least a normal day. I have not changed my use of the phone, i.e. Facebook, WhatsApp, Twitter, Email within the parameters as before. I am aware that the battery of the XA is slightly smaller than the one of the M2.
I have reset the phone back to factory settings already twice without joy. Any suggestions? Help

Actually it is not really on the battery nor the android OS rather It is the MEDIATEK CHEAP CHIPSET! You all google it and you all will find. Sony made a mistake on using that MEDIATEK CHIPSET and over powered the 2300 MAH batterry of XA. Cause even when your phone searches signal for your local network provider, the whole CPU is working and that is why day and night, ultrastamina mode or not the battery still drains. YOU TRY AIRPLANE MODE and you will see...
