Same issue here. Sony XZ battery drain after Nougat update. Same usage pattern, battery 100 to 0 during the Night. Phone constantly hot.
Wish I never did the update - Please work on an update fix...

I also have the same problem on my xperia x after updating to Android 7.0 recently. My battery drain faster then usual and when I checked the app consuming most of the juice I found that 'phone idle' is consuming about 14 to 15 per cent.

Re: "Phone Idle" battery drain in 7.0 Nougat

Does any body can explain what "phone idle" can benefit your phone to compensate for considerable battery juice consumption.? Is there a way reduce it to the barest minimum so it can't contribute rapid battery juice depletion.?

Same case in my Xperia XZ. I think this is the software issue. Will Sony be viewing this? Please provide an update to fix this issue ASAP. Thank you.

Re: "Phone Idle" battery drain in 7.0 Nougat

Hi,

 

Problem still exits and according to my observation, it is getting worse. "Phone idle" is still at the top of battery consumption with %21 (in 20 hours) and the second on the list is Android OS with %14 (same again in 20 hours). I'm guessing every user that made the Nougat update is experiencing the same problem. However, only the ones that are checking the battery status are aware of it.

 

Could you please let us know what will be done regarding to this issue? Should we wait for a patch which will fix this or is there any other alternative solution that you can suggest?

 

Thank you.

I too have the same issue since the update happened. 100 to 0 without Internet use. Earlier it use to stay for 2 to 3 days as normal use.

Re: "Phone Idle" battery drain in 7.0 Nougat

Mine had a similar issue, but then after a couple weeks of just the battery draining rapidly, it also started charging at a very slow rate. Then it died three days ago, and I have been unable to charge it or turn it on since. Any ideas?
