I feel a little sorry for you then. You tapped in to the wrong OS version.

Why other OEM work perfect with this version?

Pixel, htc10, moto Z, oneplus 3t, etc

 

Why root user can fix this issue easily?

I rooted my XZ, and not any battery drain, can get 7-10 SoT.

Re: Xperia XZ, Nougat, Insane battery drain

Update,

 

So all of a sudden, without any update, without any application uninstall or install, no settings change, this has happened today.

Screenshot_20170410-034945.pngScreenshot_20170410-035151.png

So about 1.6 hours of screen on time, and still 57 % battery left after 12 hours. 

Its still not normal, as with this little screen on time and not much of usage I should be getting at least between 70 and 80 % battery left. but it still is an improvement. I can't figure it out yet how this happened. If I find out I will write back here.

Please share your battery usage and SOT screenshots here so everyone can get a general idea of what is abnormal here/ what's normal, and if the issue has same severity across all devices. also please write if you have single sim variant of dual sim one. Mine is dual sim one.

 This is how it looked like few days after re installing the OS, and restoring apps and settings from the backup. 

 Went down from 100% to this overnight without using it at all. 

Single sim version.

I noticed that the original smart cover uses a lot of power. Normaly in the first 2 hours of the day I lost 12% batt. power.

For the last two days I stoped using the original cover and have about 2% usage in the first two hours of the day...... could it be the cover that's causing the trouble?

@hunBela

The condition you have is what I had till yesterday.

You still are suffering from it. 

My phone automatically kind of improved without any update or anything. hope fully your will also in a day or 2, Otherwise all we can do is sell the phone or wait for the update from sony.

Does anyone have any Idea how we can Raise this issue to get Sony's attention ?

I am thinking about reddit. any ideas?

One change, i went crazy and disabled googles office, sheets and all of it's brothers. It didn't sorted the phone idle drain, but it drove the system away from the pole position in battery drain list.

Re: Xperia XZ, Nougat, Insane battery drain

Same as others here. Phone idle drain came on suddenly about two weeks ago, repairing , resetting did nothing, and then a couple days ago started improving by itself. Not back to the insane battery life before. When screen was like the only battery consumer. Heh
