Battery capacity question XZ2

The phone is advertised to have 3180mAh but android is reporting 3060mAh.

Are Sony advertising the nominal capacity? Am I just unlucky to get a battery that is "within tolerance"? 

I'm using aida64 to read out this information. 

It feels a bit meh to get a brand new phone that already has less battery than advertised...

@bondue

Check the battery capacity from the service menu for more accurate reading. You can access that menu by dialling the code *#*#7378423#*#*

Service menu, service tests, battery health test?Screenshot_20180603-143023.png

 Does this show the current or max capacity?
