41.3.A.2.192 Xperia XZs

After updating to 41.3.A.2.192

1. Battery suffered a lot - SOT less than 3.5hours. Screenshot_20181126-095223.png

 

2. Phone heats badly

3. Phone lags & phone stutters

4. Screen brightness adjusts too much & strains eyes too much

5. LTE only - option removed from preferred network selection

 

 

41.3.A.0.401 update had the best battery life (SOT - 5 hours) & performance

I have the same problem. The phone is almost unusable right now because of the lag and battery runs out in half a day.

I think I managed to cut the battery consumption a little bit by turning the adaptive brightness and smart backlight control off.

Me too bro, I also have resetted my phone, disabled useless bloatware (including facebook), turning off backgroud data for all unnecessary apps. My screen on time has gone up from 2 hours 5 minutes to 3 hours 6 minutes. It's still bad compared to 41.3.A.0.401 (which had SOT of 4 hours 53 minutes), but still okay.

After factory reset, the screen on time is at 4 hours & 50 minutes with stamina mode on and set for device performance & without Facebook, messenger. The phone still lags in performance. Even if the stamina mode is switched off, the lag continues.

Marginal improvement, but not thethe original Sony

Re: 41.3.A.2.192 Xperia XZs

In another thread someone suggested disabling Battery Care. I actually updated Battery Care from Apkmirror and that seemed to help a lot.

 

The newest version didn't want to install but version 1.2.5.A.6.3 did and I haven't seen any side effects other than increase in battery life.
