Yup my battery life is dreadful since I updated the software. Barely lasting half a day now despite having all the wifi, data usage, bluetooth switched off - used to last about 2 days. To say I'm annoyed is an understatement - how can a company release an update like this without doing basic tests - it seems there are thousands (if not more) in the same boat. I loved my Xperia Z but if this doesnt get fixed soon I'll be looking to get out of my contract and ask for a refund. Not ideal when ly dad is in hiospital and I need to have my phone on for updates - been without it for the past few hours and still an hour from getting home to check in with my mam.

I figured out this was caused by Google Play Services, it can be confirmed by going into the battery usage, you'll see that Google Play Services is causing the drain. You can either disable it or download this; https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.playfulgeeks.gservicefix
I don't know what it does but it works, credits for the app mentioned go to the first replier!
Thanks a ton!

Have you tried the usual? Hard reset with button? Start in safe mode by pressing Volume Down and Power together? Connecting it through PC Companion or SUS and returning the Device to factory defaults?
