Less than 3 hours of on screen time after Oreo update.

I've had my Xperia XZ since Feb '17 and I love my phone. The huge flaw is the screen on time. I can't get over 3 hours! I don't know what the standard screen time is for an android but it's such a disappointing aspect of the phone. Maybe I got a faulty unit or it's been the last few mayor updates (Nougat 7.0-7.1 & Oreo 8.0) but now I have to charge my phone up to 2 times a day! After the Oreo update, my phone has been lagging and is warm constantly. I thought the December security patch update would help with this issue and it was fine the first day. Now, the battery is draining fast and it's lagging again. I noticed "Android System" has the most percentage of battery usage since the Oreo update. Any ideas as to why? Any ideas or suggestions are highly appreciated.

Re: Less than 3 hours of on screen time after Oreo update.

I'm facing the same issue, but I was able to reduce the draining by doing these steps:

- Activating Data Saver in the Settings (Network > Data Usage > Data Saver) 

- Deactivating Battery Saver

- Restricting the background activity of as many apps I was able to in the battery settings (Settings > Battery > Advanced > Tap the slider) !also for Android System!

 

In addition I've installed AccuBattery to monitor the battery drainage. I get about 3:30h of Sot now, still a joke in comparison to my old Xperia Z1 or other smartphones. Idle drain is about 2%/h

 

Hope it helps yousmile happy

Re: Less than 3 hours of on screen time after Oreo update.

My XZ is 14 months old and still on Marshmallow. I get less runtime than I used to because the battery is worn but I still regularly get 5-7 hours of SOT.
