After 7.5 hours of charging, I've got this!
Clearly the new Nougat update has more power problems than Northen African governments...

If Sony doesn't fix this battery drain issue, it's goig to be my last Sony.....
Compared to Samsung and Huawai, battery life time is ridiculous.
I have a Samsung J5 which can run 4 days without seeing a charger while my xperia xz doesnt' even last a day.....

I recently have had the same issues - battery was dramatically dying within very short time ie couple of hours - and phone was getting very hot. I performed factory reset - phone no longer getting hot, and battery has improved, but still not ideal, still only lasting about 20ish hours with minimum use- still showing usage figures from full charge like this - 25% screen, 23% phone idle, 13% google play services - i hardly use my phone for much apart from fitbit sync, facebook viewing so please explain how i can improve battery performance to what it was when i go the phone at end of January 2017.?

It also happened with my Xperia XZ phone (Nougats 7.1.1).
I just left it untouched over night, and 14% of the battery has gone (Stamina and data saver enabled). Something kept Android OS awake for very long time. I tried to figure out which apps caused it, but there was no clue.
I have tried many things such as:
* Reboot with cache clear (power button + volume up).
* Disabled LTE.
* Disabled Sony software updates.

Hello i have the xz and since the upgrade to 7, it over heats, battery drains and comes on in my pocket when i turn the screen off to put it in my pocket.
any suggestions please.

Happened to me before and what I did after all the updates was to do a phone reset or use the xperia companion to do the reset for you. It helps a lot and when the phone turns on while inside your pocket, turn off the double tap to wake up phone, this feature is very sensitive.

I am experiencing the same problem, plus the energy is draining even while loading. It takes one or two restarts before the phone shows a normal behavior. This is not acceptable, I need a functioning phone when I leave my home, not some electronic lottery. This happened after a software update on my previous Sony Z3, now this is reoccurring on my XZ after the update to Nougat again. Maybe I should switch to a Google phone. Sorry!
