We would need more information to help diagnose the possible issue. What's your SoT (screen on time)? Is your LTE connection consistent or spotty?

Lessen your screen brightness and put. 30 sec. on screen on time. It will help the battery stay longer.

I work under dirext sunlight with LTE. Wish it could do better than 3 hours sot. It can't last 12 working hours.

Re: Very bad battery life xz1

When STAMINA is OFF yes, the battery seems too small, but if We can sacrifiece "better videos and sharper photos" We can put phone to constant STAMINA mode, like Z2 and Z3 had.. Ok maybe We can't use the Xperias as portable game centres, but if We don't play a lot, just occasionly I can assure, it works longer than most phones on market. Compared lately in work with HTC One M9, and Galaxy S7 edge, standby time with few games we had..,mostly chess on-line, 4G (due to similar battery packs and screen sizes, I'm not going to fight against Xiaomi MI Plus with 4000mAh accu, cause it's tottaly different class with 5,9" screen).
4 hours of play:
-One M9 (64%, standard mode)
-S7 Edge (59%)
-XZ1 (62%, STAMINA ON)

I would say... not bad.

Stamina mode makes xz1 unusable. It drops performance to minimum.

Hi @dimipsal;

 

You have 3 levels of Stamina mode, choose Device Performance Preferred.

The battery time dependes very much of device type of usage, several settings, and apps installed.
