Re: 4.4.2 - Battery Drain issue - Workaround \ Fix

No PBertie weather it's no accurate, for me it gets a 50km station, and since I live near the sea it's very different. Also geo tag in pics.
Remember that it differ from countries.

But try again to do the last recommendations in the thread, maybe now will work, or a hard reset.

Sony will only solve this if one phone explode after overheating.

overheating fix

Okay ive worked to find a solution for all you running 4.4.2. Ive had two Xperia ZLs to test this and this is what worked, the battery gets warm but not hot!

Downgrade or upgrade to Google play services 5.0.84
Unistall all updates for google+
Unistall all updates for Chrome
Unistall all updates for Cloud Print

Hard reset vol+ power until It vibrates 3 times.


I cant pinpoint which one of the above is the actual problem but i stopped when i felt that the battery wasnt overheating anymore. Kudo if it worked please.

Re: Xperia Z extreme battery drain by Google Services

@Samuel - Recently a couple of days back, got an update from Sony when I connected my phone to PC. The update didn't change anything in the build number. It's still .230. After the update I tried switching back to battery saving mode, but it didn't work. The problem is still there. And I have the latest Google Play Services 5.0.84

Re: Battery drain after 4.4 update

No , and Sony doesn't know either. It's brutal. Sony mobile came up with a "fix" that worked for 24 hours. Brutal.

Xperia ZL keeps restarting - complete battery drain

My xperia zl c6506 continuously restarts.  After 4+ hours a full battery is completely drained. 

 

Events that preceded the restarts:  I was not receiving any data service, contacted my carrier (tmobile), who was useless, but in trying to help me, made me hold down the "power" and "volume up" buttons for a few seconds, which did nothing (but I am wondering if that is somehow causing the restarts).  RESTARTS ONLY OCCUR WHEN THE PHONE IS NOT PLUGGED IN (i.e. only when it is on battery power). 

 

On another forum, I was advised to re-download internet settings on the phone to get the data to work (settings à wireless + networks à more à internet settings).  I did this and the data now works....except for the constant restarts…did the download have something to do with it….?  Please help.
