Re: xperia XA: massive battery drain

So a further update from me: 3 months of having my phone die after 10-12 hours (even not using it) and finally my phone is no longer dying by 6pm. Yesterday I got 16 hours life out of it, from 8am to midnight. Note - this was still only 3 hours SOT. So performance didn't improve much - but the battery stopped draining when the phone was not in use.

 

If you use Lifelog, make sure you apply the update from the 19th September, as it fixes the bug that stopped the phone entering Doze and will give you more standby time. 3 hours SOT is still not great, but overall this is a BIG improvement for me, it means with careful management I know I can at least make it through a day. If the latest main o/s firmware update improves performance so I get more SOT (as some of you are posting), even better. Just hope custom UK is not two months behind everyone else for this update.

 

Finally moving in the right direction.

Apparently after the update, the SD card keeps on ejecting itself. And it's notification stays on the notification bar. There s has been happening since the update. 3 times in the last hour or so.
Anyone having same problem?

Sorry not various but I saw another guy who was complaining for the memory card being ejected and then automatically mounting after every 5 or 10 min.
