XZ1 Battery Drain

Hi

 

My XZ1 battery has started to drain rapidly this last week.

I've checked all my battery settings and I am even having to use Stamina mode.

The phone is only a month old.

 

The phone was full charged last night, 4hr ago. Already the battery is down to 76% (in stamina Mode) with very low useage.

 

Screen Usage since full charge 45min

No app's running

No Streaming

No downloading

 

Just sat Idle with the odd whatapp message.

 

Phone has been updated to Android 8.0.0.

 

Yesterday the phone was dead before i even left work.

 

Please advise.

Re: XZ1 Battery Drain

 

Using stamina mode and disabling blue tooth and 4G, the phone last's a working day.

But the performance is seriously compromised. 

I'm guessing at the lack of any response to my thread that it would indicate I’m on my own with this and it's likely to be an uncommon fault that is just affecting my phone.

 

Therefore I will go and get the phone checked under warranty.

Re: XZ1 Battery Drain

Since its under warranty, you made the right move in bringing it down to the service centre. But in the future, it would be great to Screenshot your "Battery" in your Settings and posting it here so it is easier for the community to help analyze and solve your problem.:smileysmileywink:

Re: XZ1 Battery Drain

The last 3 firmware updates have ruined WiFi connectivity and caused battery performance to deteriorate. Sony seem incapable of resolving these issues. Absolute disgrace. They say disable 4G but we have to use network data as the WiFi problem means we can't use it. They've got us over a barrel!

Re: XZ1 Battery Drain

Yep, battery is draining faster. When phone was new, i had like 5% batteery drain over nicht. Now 25 !!

Obviously something is going on.

No drain on safe mode, but no app is showing draining it on normal mode.

Re: XZ1 Battery Drain

Hello, 

 

I see that a few of you are having some problems with the battery performance. My XZ1 is new from a couple of days ago. After charging it totato  100%, I started to set things up. The phone went into several OS updates and rebooting. Now, the battery duration in terms of hours was very low but it's been incrementing. Is this battery and power system smart and still 'learning'? 

Should I expect it to get better?

Re: XZ1 Battery Drain

I have the same issue with my XZ1 too and I just purchased it like 4 days ago. No severe draining though but this is not what I expected from a brand new XZ1.. I was just using Facebook and whatsapp. I'll record my usage tomorrow for details. Really disappointing me, what with the alarm clock issue still hanging eventhough I had updated to the latest version :/
