Re: Battery Care doesnt care anymore and extreme battery drain

Same here, battery life around 2 hours max. And charging to full takes around 3 hours. Disappointing, because I'm big Sony Xperia fan. Please fix problem. Thank you Sony support team.

Do you have Facebook/messanger app?

 

I saw many tweets that those app have been eating battery crazy since last night.

Re: "Phone Idle" battery drain in 7.0 Nougat

I appear to have a similar problem to all the other posters after installing Nougat on my Xperia X Compact.

 

Battery is spuriously draining quickly and may also be related to the Bluetooth problem I have (Another discussion re Nougat and car BT problems). If I pair the BT in the car, I can play music, but not control it and do not have the title info displayed. It then seems to frequently drain the battery after that and the phone gets quite warm.

Today the battery has drained really quickly and I have used the BT in the car for a short while, however have also powered off/on afterwards and still has problems.

 

I am the same as all the others posters here I think in that I am expecting this should be an android fix to resolve these issues.

I am loathed to try the repair option as I had such problems setting up the new phone with backups/restores and bank apps not working.

 

Having only recently got an Xperia X and updated it to Nougat, I really am not impressed at the moment.

Hi, I'm experiencing all of the issues listed in this post. Battery life was fine before update, now on second charge today as I write this. Phone really hot all the time, even after soft reset. Date and time incorrectly displayed for approximately 4 minutes resulting in error from what's app. Please fix as I like phone. Kind regards David

Re: "Phone Idle" battery drain in 7.0 Nougat

Today I went from 100% to 5% in 4 hours normally I finish work and go home with 40% left.

Changed nothing in my habits no new apps just a recent security update and general app auto updates

Thouhht my phone was broke so I did a companion xperia restore on the pc when I got in.

Phone is still the same, bad drain issues.

I'm using a song Xperia XZ android 7.0 with a few security updates that have come through December - January.

I can physically watch the battery % tick down - 1% per minute as I'm looking at my phone.

It wasn't anywhere near this bad until this morning.
