Re: xperia XA: massive battery drain

I have started using XA Ultra in October 2016 build no 36.0.A.2.109 and have been experiencing massive battery drain due to cell standby, it drains battery even on airplane mode Slightly frowning Face

i get on screen time of about 4 hrs on mobile data,

interestingly,when using wifi throughout i get 6-7hrs on screen time.

I have done it all that could help from reading posts here and contacting sony support but the problem still persist Slightly frowning Face

Re: xperia XA: massive battery drain

As follow up from a previous post;

 

I recently changed data-carrier by using sim slot 2 for data-only, keeping voice-only in slot 1.

(slot 1 will auto-switch to GSM only).

You would think it would waste even more battery by using two sim cards but this new data-carrier

seems to use less power in standby (whether at home or at work it is about 2% to 3% per hour).

The screen shot below shows I have about 65% battery left at the end of a day, the same as before.

It was a less busy day (used half as much bluetooth and screen time) but there are two vital differences with the new set-up;

1.) Powering two cards instead of one.

2.) Never went into Airplane mode (two radios on ALL day!)

I would day it's not great, but it's not bad and defintely better than before.

A moment of silence those who still expect that software update will resolve the battery issue.. Slightly frowning Face Don't expect friends.. We all are cheated by Sony.. :/

There is no improvements on latest update : 33.2.A.4.70
