Battery drain in Kit Kat for Xperia XL

I just installed the Kit Kat update but the drain of the battery is terrible. Google Play Services is the app that is consuming the battery.

Re: 4.4.2 - Battery Drain issue - Workaround \ Fix

I had the same issue after upadting to 4.4

 

Disabled Google Play Services, Hangouts, Google +

 

Waiting now to see how it reacts. Initially it seems to have improved the visual effects rendering, like the notifications tray, which is good. Let's wait for the battery.

Re: 4.4.2 - Battery Drain issue - Workaround \ Fix

Dear Sony,
Finally i manage to slove the slowness issue in my Xperia, what i did was firstly I uninstall the Google play service and then I uninstall and disabled following apps which causes issue in the android 4.3 update also, and after that I re install a fresh copy of Google play service and all things work well,
What i disabled and uninstall to factory settings are
Google hangouts
Google +
Google Chrome
Google search

But I have a question for you Sony, I have to disable chrome in the previous android update because my speakers set to default when I received a call, and at that time you asked to disable the chrome and you promised me that you are going to fix that issue in kitkat update, but see what happened instead of one this time i have to disable 4 Google apps,so are you going to fixed it or just giving us false hopes,

Thanks

I've tried this solution. Rolling back Google Play Services results in getting gang-banged by apps notifying you that you need to upgrade to the latest version. Disablind targeting and data back-up worked for like three days, but now Google Play Services has started again with hogging all the juice.

Battery drain in Xperia Z

Hi All,

 Some 2 weeks back bought an Xperia Z, seems to be a nice phone but I cant really use it much as battery is draining very fast.  It seems that lot many (or is it all??) are facing this issue, I have gone through other threads, but seems none of them are actually solved.

 

With some average use (15 mins call, 10-15 mins youtube, another 20 mins web surfing, mainly news pages without any video), the battery is down to 35% from 100. I am always in 3g (dont ask me to switch to 2g, this is not why i spend 29K Rs on this phone) and other communication channels (wifi/bluetooth/nfc/gps) are off. Seems I can use only upto some 8hrs max in this phone and only in constant fear of battery outage.

Looking into "power management",  I can see these : Screen 34%, mediaserver 15% and Andriod OS 11%, Phone 6%

and I am using Andriod 4.3

 

Sony has managed to kill the initial thrill which I had for the phone(apparently this is the "best of sony in a smartphone") and looking into the forum, a lot many are having the issue.

Expecting some answers (and fix ofcourse!!) from Sony (if you actually care), but any other suggestions are welcome.
