Re: "Phone Idle" battery drain in 7.0 Nougat

Is there any way to change battery care so it's linked to the alarm I set? No point at the moment as I set my alarm to 4.30am and battery care finishes charging by 6am 😕😵

Re: "Phone Idle" battery drain in 7.0 Nougat

Same issue,

 

Just had my Sony XZ back from a repair centre because it simply wouldn't switch on. Now its been "fixed", it has this latest update installed and is much slower and the battery life is a total joke.

 

I was using my Sony Z2 while it was getting repaired and it was noticeably faster and battery life was soo much better.


Absolute farce!!

Re: "Phone Idle" battery drain in 7.0 Nougat

Guys, since i bought this phone a month ago, I immediately updated to Nougat, and with wifi ON, some browsing, facebook, messenger I only get 4hrs+ SOT, never went to 6 hrs or 5 hrs even when wifi is off. I even use Greenify to hibernate apps that runs in the background like Instagram and Snapchat. Is this normal? or my unit is faulty?

Re: "Phone Idle" battery drain in 7.0 Nougat

Funny thing, I just updated to 39.2.A.0.417 (XZ) and now I have a battery drain issue.  It was actually ok prior to this update.

 

I had a reboot issue a few hours after installing the latest update where the phone would continuously power off and reboot.  But it would restart back to my home screen without ever asking for my PIN.  Really strange.  A hard shut down fixed that isssue.

 

Now it seems the battery drain stems from phone idle which reaches 23% of battery usage overnight.

Re: "Phone Idle" battery drain in 7.0 Nougat

Yes I have the same issue. It's either the idle 17%-20% battery consume or the Android OS which consumes more I'll say around 28%-32% and that's on idle mode. I mean when I'm working and not using my phone for long hours, even when I used stamina mode and prefer time the battery drains fast. I will charge my device lets say 100% after let's say after 10 mins it will drain a good amount 1-2% so an hour I'm draining 6-8% without even using the phone. I have LG g4 which will drain 4% tops after an hour of no use. I'm just bringing this to Sony's attention and I'm sure it's a bug from their update and future update will take care of this issue.

FYI my device is running on latest Android/updates from Sony and after downloading and installing all. I did a phone reset and then a software repair using xperia companion so my phone is Sony standard and all apps are battery optimized.

Re: "Phone Idle" battery drain in 7.0 Nougat

A further update from me, my XZ is still suffering from this Phone Idle issue, even after updating to the latest firmware. Interestingly, my wife has the xperia XA, and here Phone Idle stats for today is just 1%, nearly 7hours time on, 19mah used. Surely Sony can get this issue fixed!
